I always breath a little sigh of relief after the winter solstice, for me it feels like the worst of winter is over and I can finally start to claw back some daylight hours. But in reality, January is one of the hardest months for a South African living in a cold climate and I know by mid January, I will be practically gasping for sunshine and warmth. At this point, I’ll settle for some coastal eye candy in the form of this beautiful beach cottage. Natural timber walls, floors, and low ceilings along with the relaxed furniture and rich textiles create the perfect little beach hideaway. I’d also quite happily give up chocolate for the rest of my life if I could have a dining room just like this one.
