Freeworld Design Centre – Find Inspiration and Be Inspired

How awesome.  This multi-functional space is in fact a first for South Africa.  Providing décor consultation and 3D rendering services for architects, interior designers and decorators, property developers and home owners, this cutting edge space also houses a design reference library and a gallery-styled exhibition.  For us it provides many shoot- and event-worthy areas that are stylish, current, bold and highly adaptable.  The rooftop provides unparalleled cityscape views whilst the exteriors house gorgeous courtyards and a European high-street atmosphere.

Location Feature on @DearMeFoodWorld

Dear Me, a recently opened all-day brasserie, deli and event space is located in Cape Town’s CBD and is one hot new space we’re pretty proud to have in our portfolio.  Situated in an exquisitely restored 181-year old building on Longmarket Street, it has a gorgeous rooftop, fresh and funky café-restaurant and it’s own out-of-this-world-white White Room.  Perfect for private events, conferences, functions and shoots – have a look at the selected images below or see more here.

A Touch of Red at Shine

We had a great time last week Thursday at Shine, where we sponsored and held the last Jozi Wrap Party of the year in conjunction with Film & Event Media.  Everyone was encouraged to wear a touch of red and to bring their festive spirit to the fabulous venue in Braamfontein.  A huge thank you and well-deserved enthusing goes to:

First off, the venue itself.  Film- and event-friendly with highly adaptable facilities, super-willing and helpful staff and the attitude whereby nothing is too much trouble.  We have built up an excellent relationship with Shine in a relatively short space of time, hence approaching them to host this event in the first place.  With two awesome venue spaces (loads of light, height, balcony space and great views), two film studios, a fashion space complete with infinity curve and plenty of breakaway rooms – it’s a no-brainer to give this venue a try for your next shoot or event.

Ginger Grape catered most exquisitely and more than adequately (in fact just to think back on their food is making my mouth water) with the most delectable canapés.  After the speeches we were treated to a bread, cheese, turkish delight and truffle selection which was of course beautifully presented.  The staff were also phenomenal and ensured that guests drinks were continuously refilled, they were impeccably mannered and simply top-class.

Thanks also to Lourensford Wines, VISI and Lindt for their sponsorships and to R1 Security for their guards and services provided throughout the night.


Welcome Home: Fire & Ice Melrose Arch

I was blown away by the Fire and Ice in Melrose Arch last week.  With its opulent decor, plush fabrics and rich colours and textures, it’s an absolute feast for the senses.  With something vivid and vibrant catching your eye at practically every moment, it’s difficult not to stay enthralled from start to finish.  It has a great breakfast buffet every morning, the meals are delicious and not overly fussy, the milkshake bar offers any delight you could possibly imagine including ‘spiked’ shakes.  And they’ve recently introduced Jazz evenings on a Thursday with a phenomenal showcase of local talent.

Here are a few more snaps of the hotel itself.  This is a top choice in terms of current trends and is available as a film and stills shoot location.  They also pride themselves on being film-friendly, so chat to us about film crew rates.

The Baxter Gets a Facelift

You almost can’t believe it’s the same place, but The Baxter theatre in Rondebosch has recently undergone a transformation.    It has been given a “new look” by The Forum Company and provides an awesome space to hang out, wine and dine before a show.

Now available for conferencing, corporate dinners, cocktail functions and, of course, as a photo and film shoot location – it’s super-stylish and trendy.  They’ve also revamped the catering side and offer meals, snacks and beverages to compete with the most in-vogue spots.
