it’s all in the detail

Tip Before painting on tiles, remember to prepare the surface by removing any oily residue with sugar soap. When dry, apply two thin coats of Plascon Tile & Melamine Primer (you might need to sand lightly between coats) before adding colour like Caroline did. She painted the landscape freehand; you might prefer to draw the outline with a light pencil first. The mountains, valleys and ocean remind us of all the wonderful views we’ve enjoyed on our travels. So we brought the mountains home!– Caroline A stunning landscape Caroline Jacobs and her sons Kyle and Cameron refer to their kitchen as their “all-in-one happy place”. This is where they spend quality time together and cook comfort food. But it wasn’t always the welcoming space it is now. Caroline describes the original kitchen as “a…

on the face of it

Corine and Adri Badenhorst bought their first home the year before they got married 15 years ago. But it would be a long time before they lived there as they first spent a few years in France. “I worked at Boland College and Adri played rugby for Maties and later WP,” says Corine. “We got married in December 2004 and on the day our first child Imke was born, Adri received an offer to play for a French rugby club. Neither his parents nor mine were over the moon as this was their first grandchild!” Nevertheless, the family went overseas and found themselves in Agen in the south-west of France, where they planned to live for just a year or two. Two years turned to six “because we loved it there so…

It also has a small outdoor area where they can soak up the sunshine and get some fresh air. It was an easy decision: the couple made an offer to purchase in December 2017 and moved in shortly after. The position of the kitchen is ideal – it forms part of the open-plan living and dining area – but it was small and needed a revamp. The…

Next on her to-do list was the dark, cramped kitchen. The hob was squashed between the fridge and washing machine, leaving little counter space, while the dated melamine cupboards and dark grey floor tiles did little to inspire culinary creativity. First to go were the tiled floors, which were replaced when Inez installed…
