With the growth of Franschhoek Boutique Hotel and the increasing demand for “Family” rooms we have undertaken to build a 75 Square Meter boudoir on the Franschhoek high street to join the current collection at the property.
Here are some of sneak peak mood boards we are using. The challenge is staying within our contemporary and creative styling yet still remaining practical for a homey family feeling.
With having a small amount of free space we have to find a way to incorporate dual, multi-purpose spaces. I loved how this could be a mixed use day bed and lounge area. The use of light good qulaity fabric will also enhance the 8 sets of which flood this downstairs space with light
My new addiction is geometric wooden flooring. I also loved the use of natural africa curios that would combine our roots in South Africa yet still offer a contemporary feeel. MAininting truth to our already existent rooms.
A Large open shower is the perfect way to maintain a luxurious feeling of space. We hope to add His & Her Sinks and perhaps even a free-standing bath in the main en-suite.
Focal points purchases for the new suite must focus on importantly, light, quality of fabrics (as always) and hopefully great artworks to create interest amongst each space. Also, combinding various natural elements that are locally made and sourced.
I love combining old world charm ad items discovered on travels with some new purchase. The Below is Slightly too neutral for what I am hoping for the renovation but I could definitely play with texture, the use of Gold & copper. Sleep lamps and trinkets from travelling. Anyone can tell you, I am a huge Weylandts fan and these ideas seem right up their (and my) alley.
But first planning…here’s to new beginnings!
