Amazing Grace

















An elegant tranquility sets the mood of this seaside cottage in Paternoster, South Africa, home to chef and food stylist Maranda Engelbrecht. 

The subtly textured grey walls bring an earthy feel, while pretty feminine accents and toned-down pinks add a dash of glamour. Such a refreshing change from the usual nautical themes we often see in homes by the shore. My favourite spaces in the home are the kitchen and dining room, with their beautifully detailed chairs and carefully-chosen accessories. 

Would you take a look at that fabulous bathroom? You know I always love to see a vaulted ceiling. This space really gains drama from the height. I'm quite in awe of this luxurious room. What gal wouldn't enjoy a bit of pampering in such a lovely space?
