This idyllic 5 star piece of paradise is situated along the Standford/Hermanus lagoon and lends itself to the ultimate in luxury and tranquility.
I was called in to assist in the refurb of their lapa lounge and bedrooms in the Lagoon Lodge. Drawing on and inspired by the textures within the space, allowed for a natural extension into the earthy tones of the fabrics and the pieces of furniture selected and made.
The client wanted an unfussy yet sophisticated space. Making it easy for the guests to totally unwind and literally put their feet up. I introduced a few eclectic pieces like the hand made, wood fired ceramic pendants and included natural weaves within the selected fabrics.
The refresh of the individual five chalets, were inspired by the abundant birdlife and acres of fynbos surrounding the lodge. These exclusive suites, all nestled in between ancient milkwoods, were themed; the Kingfisher, Pincushion, Sunbird etc.
Working from a neutral base we played with relevant colours and textures to reflect this. Striking and bold combinations were introduced to contrast well with the natural elements of the existing structure.
The old pieces of milkwood allowed for the organic design and creation of the lightstands in each of the rooms. This, together with the subtle hints of luxury in the fabrics, made a striking combination.
All of the wood, thatch and stone used within the framework of the lodge when it was built, was originally harvested and fashioned from the farm and this further enabled a lovely tactile connection between the décor, the individual fireplaces and outside showers.
It was truly inspiring working with existing raw elements and upcycling various materials to meet the clients brief. An added bonus is that all the vegies grown on the farm all contribute to their world class, delicious menus.
