The Abbey is a "home from home" guest house in Johannesburg, South Africa. The owner, Simone Mungle, has been in the decor industry for many years and is probably most well-known for her shop House and Homewear, which she has since sold. This guest house is her new venture and she has decorated it in an interesting mix of Colonial, French and English country home style. Here are some pictures. Enjoy!
The Union Jack rug was specially made for her using old oriental carpets.
Masses of books add colour and interest to the shelves.
I love the collection of tureens on the mantel and the beautiful Persian underfoot.
There are beautiful rugs in every room.
I love the trophies, vintage wire basket and the African touch with the buck towel hooks.
The Verandah has a very Colonial feel with the Kudu hunting trophies flanking the fireplace and the reed ceiling.
So do you think you might like to stay here? I know I would!
Till next time
