style | decor | fashion | DIY | design | organisation: tips, tricks & clever ideas for the savvy girl

Recently my husband and I celebrated our 1 year anniversary, spending a weekend out at Sanbona Private Game Reserve in the Western Cape, just off the pretty R62. The feeling I get – I don’t know how many of you can relate – of being in the bush, is one of total unwinding, relaxing and soul-refreshing! Ah, yes, particularly the Karoo!

This amazing interior, a desert landscape where only the hardy survive; farmers tend the dry land, caracals and jackals exist on the periphery, hardened sheep make due with scrub… it is also a place of unmistaken beauty – endless landscapes, BIG blue skies, outcrops that surge out of the earth, sudden farm cottages sprung up like havens…

This post on The Good Girls Guide is dedicated to the inspiration of the Karoo in South African homes – I love the decor, the feel of the country desert experience, the restful effect it has on my soul. Be inspired and come visit!  🙂
