Steal This Look: Bedroom at Babylonstoren

Alexa Hotz January 24, 2012

We have been having a love affair with Babylonstoren lately; see Hotels & Lodging: Babylonstoren in South Africa. We just can't get enough of the white-washed color palette and rustic texture.

The resort, located in the Cape Winelands outside Franschhoek, was designed by former SA Elle Decor editor Karen Roos and is one of the oldest farms in the Cape Dutch style, dating back to 1690. In her design, Roos chose to preserve the historic elements while updating the rooms with modern furniture from notable designers like the Bouroullec brothers. We've singled out some of her additions below.
