Well, all I can say is you are in for a treat today. If you are not following Sue Bond on Instagram. you will want to now. I am completely smitten with her vacation home (and everything else she does) on the West Side of the Cape in South Africa. Our daughter spent a summer abroad at the University of Cape Town and I have been fascinated with their design aesthetic ever since. I contacted Sue and asked if I could feature her lovely home and she said yes. Let’s take a tour of Sue Bond’s Thesen Island Retreat on the Western Cape.
The outdoor spaces are absolutely mesmerizing
Wouldn’t you love to be a guest for dinner?
Her attention to detail impeccable. How about Christmas in this lovely spot?
I love the invisible line between the indoors and out.
Beautiful artwork from local artists accentuates the lovely interiors. Beautiful collections everywhere.
Her dining room …what can I say?
Her tablescapes definitely hold center stage. Love the blue her. Blue is a favorite of Sue’s. She always sneaks in a little green. Love the combination.
How about this kitchen from her Cape Town home. I think even a non-cook could be happy here.
Love the open shelving and the huge rattan pendants.
Love the gorgeous fabrics in this beautiful bedroom.
Love the mirrors in this beautiful bath
Even the laundry room is beautifully outfitted. Love the art.
Everywhere you look there are beautifully styled vignettes, in the garden…
Adore the styling on this console table.
The outdoor spaces reign supreme don’t they?
I hope you enjoyed the tour of Sue Bond’s Thesen Island Retreat. I intended to make this one of my Sunday favorites but felt it deserved it’s very own post. Thank you Sue for so graciously allowing us this peek into your gorgeous home. Be sure and follow Sue here for more of her signature gorgeousness.
