cosy home prep

Unlike most people, I happen to love winter simply because I get to hibernate, spending as much time indoors as I can. If you want to know how to prep you home ahead for the big chill, this issue is for you. It’s time to take out those shawls and blankets, dust out that fireplace, and make sure the cooker is in tip-top shape. Let’s start with the kitchen – the heart of the home – on page 124, where we look at stoves, hobs and multifunctional ovens. Hasmita Amtha explores how to bring warmth into a modern bathroom – see page 134, and Guinevere Davies looks at the beauty of bespoke furniture on page 142. The need for power supply will rise as the cold progresses – read about the A-Z of…

meet kopano kgafela

We caught up with owner and founder of Kgafela Interior Design Studio (KIDS). Kgafela started the company in 2016 shortly after working for several interior design firms in Johannesburg. He runs the company and is also a part-time interior design lecturer at Tshwane University. What do you love most about your work? I love being creative and interior design allows me to explore my creativity balanced with functionality. I also love the fact that projects are never the same and each presents different challenges and goals. Is there ever a typical day at work? I oversee the design processes on various projects, from creating concepts to preparing drawings for construction and project management. Therefore no day is ever the same in my line of work. Are South African interior designers growing and receiving…

ENGINEERED FOR THE MINIMALISTIC LOOK The aim was to create a hotel look for a Limpopo-based holiday home. The bathroom had to be clean, classy and elegant. As usual, Motama Kitchens and Interiors adopted a minimalistic approach. www.motama.co.za A MODERN CLASSIC Onnah Design created a space that inspires and reflects effortless comfort and timeless style. With the client based overseas, the space had to have international and local relevance and appeal. The interior consists solely of locally curated furniture pieces and décor items, with a subtle reference to the local African context. Colour tones were kept warm and neutral for the desired calming effect while layers of texture maintain interest and a contained excitement. www.onnahdesign.co.za DECORATED FOR STYLE AND LIVING Nestled in a coastal forest estate, this house reflects the airy laidback natural forest that…

the big chill

PALESA RAMAISA Colour consultant at Dulux SA When it comes to colour during winter, we tend to lean more towards the burnt orange hues, rich maroons, clay tones and a touch of mustard yellows. Selecting these muted, atmospheric shades gives a home that cosy, inviting, lived-in feeling that most people appreciate. Earthy tones will always be on-trend as these shades are versatile, making them very effective. Rich clay tones, for example, work in classic settings as well as more contemporary spaces, making them perfect for those of us who don’t want to constantly fuss over our home décor. Décor elements such as rugs, cushions, throws and even curtains will always create a homely environment that feels lived in. But the aim is not to have a cluttered space, so if you have a lot…

MICHAEL WALKER CEO OF SL8 AND OWNER AND CREATIVE LEAD OF SL8 STUDIO Michael Walker is the owner of artisanal design store SL8 Studio. Born and bred in South Africa, he, received local and international awards recognising his work for one of SA’s top creative agencies.
