loving your home from top to bottom

It's time to refresh and redesign your home to make it the perfect retreat from the world’s hustle and bustle. This issue is filled with the latest floor, wall, roof and ceiling trends. In fact, ceilings have come a long way from being a forgotten part of a room and are now commanding the attention they deserve as the first thing you notice when entering a space. On page 158, Helen Grange takes us through how ceilings and bulkheads are masterpieces of texture and why they’re sometimes referred to as the ‘fifth wall’ of a room. As well as how a clever use of lighting can transform an ordinary ceiling into a focal point. Another thing on our radar are laser cut screens and decorative architectural panels, which, I must add, have…

meet gabriele centazzo

Since 1981 Gabriele Centazzo has been the creative soul of Valcucine, a company he co-founded. He takes care of all the design aspects in terms of technical, engineering and stylistic research. Where do you draw your inspiration from? What I really consider as main reference points are Mother Nature and my constant search for freedom.

the essentials

JESS BINNS Designer and owner of interior and exterior design company Hector & Bailey Going into its 10th year, Hector & Bailey began life in London and moved to Durban seven years ago. Founder Jess Binns works on the premise that your surroundings play a pivotal role in happiness, health and inspiration. There is a new wave of subtle-toned, textured walls emerging. Varying in media, these range from linen-texture wallpapers, chalky matte porcelain tiles to pale-toned timber slat walls. All are a great option where walls are a little uneven and in need of cosmetic surgery. As with the rise in curved furniture, we foresee curved walls making a comeback too. Terrazzo, or terrazzo-look, tiles are once again taking centre stage in the world of interiors. The use of natural, ethically sourced materials is…
