I love a good dress up. On the cusp of 2017 my boyfriend Barry treated me to the ultimate New Year’s Eve dinner party. The Shortmarket Club, Cape Town’s most stylish and Gatsby-esque fine dining destination (read my review of it here), opened its doors to a select crowd for a themed night of eating, drinking, dancing and celebrating. It was magical!
Chandler House is a small design studio and shop located in Cape Town’s Church Street. The brainchild of Michael Chandler, a man I admire so much for whistling his own tune and doing it with ethereal style, Chandler House holds regular exhibitions and a changing selection of some of the most beautiful locally-made homeware, artisanal gifts, antiques, textiles and a wide selection of fine art. The 18th century Cape Georgian building houses the Voorkamer Gallery, where monthly exhibitions take place. This month features one of my most favourite local artists, the cute and quirky Lucie de Moyencourt, highlighting 50 ink drawings of Cape Town’s city bowl.
