The 12 Decades Hotel

Val-Day has its perks, like a night at the 12 Decades Art Hotel in Maboneng, a place I’ve wanted to visit for ages!  It feels totally indulgent staying in a hotel when your house is 20  minutes away, but also a lovely break from the same old same old.
We stayed in the MineHaus room, where Bauhaus meets Joburg mining town, designed by a long time favourite of mine Dokter & Misses.  Below are some pics from the room, the installations on the 7th floor, and Joburg’s famous skyline from the rooftop bar (most from my Instagram).

Maboneng day of leisure

I spent a leisurely day perusing the bustling streets of Maboneng, celebrating a friend’s birthday (and day off work, as should be the case on all birthdays).  I visited Stitch and Steel (some great high-waisted wide-legged trousers in delightful prints), Loincloth & Ashes and Morphe (long time favourites of mine), a store selling cool Joburg inspired paraphernalia (corner of Fox and Kruger Streets), and had a great vegan burger at Eat Your Heart Out, which is next door to the delicious Little Addis.

A Thursday well spent!
