This year, the exquisite Ellerman House in the exclusive Bantry Bay area in Cape Town has had a beautiful revamp of its interiors. Ellerman House ensures that no two rooms are alike, with amazing attention to detail and style, making this the most luxurious city-chic refurbishment in the whole of South Africa.
The lounge has been turned into an Edwardian masterpiece, painted in soft green hues matching the original gardens of Ellerman House and reflecting the colours of the ocean during the summer months. The lounge area in the bar has been completely refurbished with soft pastel colours and sumptuous upholstery. A beautiful new coffee table now sits next to the floor to ceiling windows, where guests can spend late afternoons overlooking the glimmering ocean, enjoying an afternoon beverage.
The library is now even more spectacular, having enjoyed one of the most extensive changes. A vibrant, velvet yellow takes centre stage in the room, alongside zebra patterned arm chairs and the wallpaper has been updated to reflect a more contemporary African decorative theme. Art work adorns the walls with a series of paintings, by South African artist, Pippa Skotnes that adds charmingly to the new room, depicting traditional South African scenes. The library is a wonderful mixture of modern elements and traditional touches. It is the perfect place for guests to nestle down with a book and glass of whisky!
The interiors of the rooms have also had a magnificent change, so that they now compliment the blue and green palettes of the ocean views and lush, floral surroundings of Cape Town. The art works have been changed to also match the new interiors. The views from the rooms look onto breath-taking panoramic views of the infinite blue sky and ocean. Room 7 enjoys new grey shades that span from the grey walls to the paintings and furnishings, making it a new guest favourite. All bathrooms have also been updated and now oozes contemporary style, spaciousness and comfort. There really is no better time to plan a trip to Cape Town and enjoy the epitome of luxury with Ellerman House.
