Issue 54 - House of Spirit

If you have the latest issue of Elle Decoration SA, I'm sure you were enchanted as I was by the beautiful home of Cape Town architect, Victoria Perry on pages 104 - 111.

Victoria's Sea Point cottage was so charming that our photographer Mickey Hoyle couldn't stop snapping away! We ran out of pages in the magazine, but have lots more dreamy pics to show you here.
Victoria's Isamu Noguchi coffee table takes centre stage in the living room, and she displays books and treasures on the concrete plinth that also doubles as additional seating.

In the magazine, you'll see that Victoria has her own swing in the garden, and this element of girly fun is evident in her bedroom too, where she has an adorable collection of quirky softies.
I'm sure I can spot one or too Woo-men amongst them.

A confessed ceramics nut, Victoria has a wonderful collection, including handpainted tiles and retro treasures.

You can spot a bit of Signal Hill from the balcony, which is a great place to unwind on a balmy Cape Town day.

What a beautiful home. I hope it gives you lots of inspiration for yours too. It's important to dream, after all...
