from the editor

If you’re anything like me, you’ve probably left your end-of-year plans – where to go, what to cook, who to invite, what to gift – to the last possible minute. It’s not intentional but a symptom of the season; it’s time to take it easy, even if it is much to the frustration of more organised family and friends. Fear not, we’ve thought of everything and it’s all in this issue. First things first, the practical stuff. Going away over the holidays, whether it’s a mini-break or two weeks in the Maldives (if it is the latter, you’re going to love our design guide to the island country), can seriously stress out a plant parent. Turn to Gardens Editor Heidi Bertish’s practical ‘Have Plants, Will Travel’ feature and save yourself the angst and…

the plaas supper

Sustainable and spectacular, a hanging installation of preserved flowers and foliage is more achievable than it looks. Using a cage fashioned out of chicken wire, start by inserting the larger branches until sufficiently built up then fill in with smaller dried bunches. Collective Soul ‘Eclectic’ is a word we tend to use often, but we really mean it: mix things up. Starting with a neutral base – textured linen is always a safe bet – pair inherited pieces and antiques with high-end and polished designs. For an especially modern interpretation, keep to a single variety per vase instead of traditional mixed arrangements. Material Gains Fabric as gift wrapping breathes new life into the festive season tradition. It is as unusual as it is beautiful, especially in sun-bleached hues of biscuit and brick. What’s more,…

making a scene

For the ages Glass-top tables work surprisingly well alongside darker accents, helping to create volume and reflect light, instead of absorbing it. Being as versatile as it is, a glass-top dining table is an investment piece. Pictured here, the ‘Capitol Complex’ stained-oak dining table with a glass top and ‘Capitol Complex’ chairs with armrests by Cassina, available from True Design truedesign.co.za Know-how If you’re not buying your dining table and chairs as a set, coordinate separate pieces so that they work as well as they look together. There should be a comfortable 30cm between the seat of the dining chair and the table, with roughly 60cm space between each chair. Let this rule determine how many chairs to have at the table. A softer side Abandoning traditional dining chairs, new life – and comfort –…
