The Lapa

Once upon a time I ventured to South Africa to visit family. I was smitten with the little outdoor home they had built in their courtyard. They lovingly referred to it as "the Lapa"... zulu, for "over there". My heart will always hold a special spot for that place. This long term crush inspired the build of this lovely little space, my own Lapa.
I can't wait to invite you in when it's done. xo

  4. Love the paint color, what are the specs? I'm painting my house this summer and would love it to look similar to your color.

  5. Hey Kelsey, thanks for the lovely compliment.
    The colour I chose for the exterior was called
    "Magistrate Black- TH72" by Ralph Lauren thoroughbred collection. Hope this helps. :)
