Charlotte Daneel passed away on January 25th, 2019. When I first met Charlotte about 20 years ago I had just become editor of Cape Town-based Condé Nast House & Garden magazine. It was our very first shoot and Charlotte and her shop in Franschhoek, La Grange, were to be its subjects. I’d heard of her and was in awe of what I’d heard. I was also green and inexperienced and nervous about the day ahead.
