Our Hopes for a Future beyond CORONA

21 Days That Will Test Our Nation's Fortitude

To our Dearest South African Clients ...

We can say that in our lifetime (so far) we lived through load shedding, the severest of water restrictions and now a worldwide corona pandemic and self-quarantine. It’s a lot to throw at us over not a long spread of years and yet what is amazing is that for most South Africans we remain resilient and have retained our sense of humour. The next 21 days will test that, and for a lot of us, a temporary sense of humor failure is a given. At times like these Character is built and mental toughness is developed.

Quite frankly I’d rather skip that and be able to pop off to the Seattle for a coffee with macadamia milk but that is not how it will be.

The Corona Pandemic Provides a Time to Think

In all seriousness, we have no idea what the implications of this corona pandemic will be for the world economy, for our small and medium businesses and how many of them will survive. How will this all affect global poverty? Who will come out of this stronger and who will not come out of this? What world do we want to see on the other side?  It’s a lot to wrap a head around but perhaps the tiniest of little viruses like this gives us pause to consider questions that we never have time to think about in our manic non stop normal lives.

Let's use this time to consider what we want to create in a post-pandemic world. How we will live differently, who we will hold closer and what we will let go of.

Let it never be business as usual again! We can and we must do better.

We wish you all peace and serenity and of course good health.

We will see you on the other side of this thing – leaner, tougher but also kinder and more in touch with what matters. Let's get through this and then be ready to rock and roll!

Stock up on rescue remedy, good books, great music and maybe a bit of red wine wouldn’t hurt either. oh dear - scrap the wine - we're not allowed it!! :(

Beyond Corona

With all of our love
The Girls at Shoot My House

Muse. A artist loft in Woodstock, Cape Town

Muse - An artist loft in Woodstock

Muse Location, is a magnificent art filled Loft in a trendy up and coming area of Cape town. This location offers a great vantage point from which to take in the magnificent views that stretch across the city toward the harbour on the one side and toward Table Mountain behind you. Sitting proud atop what used to be a textile factory in the meat packing district of Woodstock and what is now a trendy and creative space housing businesses as well as residential spaces, Muse Location is in her element.

Woodstock came to be in the decade post 1900, and was always a "grey area" that remained unconquered by the group areas act. A certain Bohemianism has remained here, together with a wonderful mix of cultures now from traditional Muslim families to hipsters, creatives to cafe owners and a hundred plus, main road furniture and decor stores.

Massive Steel framed windows frame the space between interior and exterior, allowing beautiful natural light to flood the space. With a square meterage of around 250m2 ,the industrial architecture design  mixed with an eclectic decor style makes for an interesting and exciting apartment. The large open plan space with polished black screed floors is separated into various areas using unusual, one of a kind items of furniture. Many of these items are created by the owners themselves, or adapted to be functional within this environment. The owner, an avid fine art collector, has found a space here where his growing art collection can truly sing and where his wonderful and unusual furniture finds can be repurposed in a suburb where conformity is frowned upon and creativity celebrated.

An absolute passion for art is apparent in this gorgeous space, with a myriad of fantastic art works begging for your attention. In every nook and around every corner you will spot visual treats.

Both stills and film shoots are welcome at Muse.

Muse is also open to short stay accommodation bookings.

 

 


The Glasshouse at Le Jardin

Le Jardin - A Wonderland in Stellenbosch

Step into a bygone era, a wonderland where time stands still. Current owners, Sue and Bernard, bought this expansive Stellenbosch property almost two decades ago,and with the help of architect Gerrit van der Wolf, transformed it into a fun and exciting land to be explored by child and adult alike.

The elegant Sir Herbert Baker style house is reminiscent of an era when life was slower, lunches were languid and everyone played croquet!

Apart from the work on the main house, Gerrit was commissioned with building a glass house, a sort of 'ode, to Bernard's love of old fashioned conservatories.'

True to the whimsical feeling of this location, a huge, ancient oak, bursts through the top of the glass roof,as though the 'Alice' of this story.

Beautiful, rolling, manicured lawns roll up to the buildings- and lead to pathways surrounded by foliage and interspersed with beautiful Alice in Wonderland characters, fashioned by Streetwise. Follow the paths and you end up on the wooden decking overlooking an eco dam. The Manor House at  is surrounded by lavender fields and rose gardens. Tree walks and a kiddies zipline add further delight to this magnificent property.A most beautiful and magical location for both film and stills shoots.
