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.

Project - Little Girl's Room Renovation

The brief was tricky. Turn a tiny, dark room into a fun kids Bedroom and play area that is warm and light on a shoe string budget - oh and the colour scheme must be pink and purple (Oy!!) The room had a poo brown carpet and bright yellow walls with large imposing (if useful) cupboard space. The only source of light a south facing window - which in the southern hemisphere means cold and dark.
 


The only way to create more space was to demolish one of the walls that led onto the passage way and swallow up the passage into the room, which was doable as the passage served no purpose anyway. We gained a meter or so there.IMG_9948
 
Next - to allow more light into the dark and tiny little room and also create the illusion of more space, we swapped out the window for a french door opening up onto a shared courtyard.
 

The poo brown carpet regrettably had to go and we decided that a screed concrete floor would be a lot more versatile and also easier to clean for a litttle munchkin. We went with a white concrete screed to allow maximum light into the space. Also because of the tiny bedroom we decided that the cupboards had to go. Though useful they were just too imposing so we invested in a versatile bunkbed that would allow for sleepovers but also provide much needed cupboard space in the form of drawers in the stairs and a large pullout draw under the bottom bunk. We decided on a wardrobe rail for hanging clothes. Love the fact that you can wheel it out, turn it around. Has great versatility.
 

We also replaced the solid bedroom door with a door with a large glass pane in it (reinforced glass of course) to allow light in from another angle and so that the grown ups can keep an eye when the door is closed.IMG_0327
We wanted to create a bedroom that inspired creativity and play despite its minuscule size and so added a magnetic blackboard on one area of wall.IMG_0353
Finally the colours. How to incorporate pink and purple without creating a room that would be unbearable to live with. My Answer  - subtlety and a slightly sneaky substitution of purple with purply grey. I found great inspiration and a way to conquer the unlikely colour scheme in this beautiful blankie.IMG_9968

Finally just add kids and voila!!
