a new green world

I love the effect of this gorgeous mustard sofa against an overscaled floral wallpaper. See more ideas for combining plants and florals on page 48. The hot topic of conversation at dinner parties these days is no longer crime, schools or (heaven forbid) politics, it’s how to get off the grid. The rising cost of water and electricity, not to mention load shedding, has forced us all to look for ways to reduce energy and water consumption, and suddenly inverters, grey water systems and the like have become hugely fascinating.I’m always grateful to the previous owners of my house who were forward thinkers and installed a solar geyser long before it was necessary, and for the 5 000-litre rainwater tank we put in a few years ago (although three…

VEGGIE MIGHTI thoroughly enjoyed the articles by Jane Griffiths in the April issue of Garden and Home . Not only have I learned how to use home-made vegetable dyes, but also to grow the veggies used for the dyes. In addition, she wrote about unusual root vegetables, including kohlrabi. With my minute vegetable garden, having exotic plants that I can eat is both a visual feast and a healthy alternative. Thank you for information about new varieties of vegetables and new ways to use them, even colouring scarves for gifts.

(PHOTOGRAPHS SUPPLIED) Situated in the heart of a 300ha stretch of undisturbed bushveld near Thabazimbi in Limpopo, this house, designed by architect Hugo Hamity, was inspired by its location.“It took a few site visits with the client and contractor to determine the final positioning of the house,” says Hugo. “A vast elongated rock on the edge of a cliff with all-around views was chosen and the house follows the contours and the shape of the Marakele Mountains behind.”Rock from the site was used to clad the elevated pool and cellar, a feature wall in the living room and the entrance, blending the house into the bush. “The steel structure allows for seamless merging of interior and exterior spaces, emphasised by the use of wooden flooring throughout – Balau timber outside…
