a bit of history: jessica and her twin sister debra and i have been friends since we were in grade 2 (around 7 years old). jessica and luke own & run nook eatery, the restaurant in stellenbosch i am constantly prattling on about. go eat there!
hahaha, really laughed at the retro food. i’m also totally fascinated & grossed out by it!
these look like they’ve been taken out of an opening scene for a cheesy porno catalogue. also, notice the toilet seat frame hanging on the wall! all from retro space.
the house from a single man is still up for sale, by the way. just in case you were on the market and you wanted to spend in the region of $1,5 million (or less? i mean, in the current climate…) – this would be a good buy. designed in 1948 by john lautner; it is an open plan living masterpiece made from redwood, concrete and glass which opens up to the oak forest that surrounds it. heaven?
looks i think i would actually consider for my own home… (not pink bathrooms though)
i’d like to introduce you to gertha – she’s one of my favourite houses in stellenbosch. all weird angles & low walls, just like the day she was first built. there are many other houses like gertha in town, but unfortunately they are being knocked down one by one to be replaced with tuscan-african monstrosities.
note: pic taken with my phone this morning, so very bad quality unfortunately. i will make an effort to go around and photograph all my favourite houses with a proper camera before they are ruined, promise.
