A Victorian House With Character
Oh! I’m in love with this house! An imaginatively renovated House With Character located in Observatory, Cape Town. A central courtyard (with plunge pool) ensures abundant light, while the pristine whiteness of the floors and walls makes a neutral canvas for owners’ art, Persian rugs, and classic and vintage pieces.
The kitchen in the home of Warren Matthee and Rupert Smith, owners of Cape Town decor stores O.live (olivestudio.co.za), opens into the courtyard and plunge pool.

This concrete batroom with vintage mirrors is to die for! The raw-concrete bathroom has a central pillar for the shower (above the tub) and a basin on either side.
