hello

I’ve never been a big fan of curtains. Maybe it’s because of my mom’s exaggerated idea of what constitutes window coverings. Layer upon layer, complete with lace curtains and blinds; eventually, you couldn’t see out of the window, no matter how glorious the view… A while ago I was busy with my favourite obsession: searching for second-hand bargains online. Having just sold the blinds covering the French doors in my bedroom on Facebook (the darn rope kept on getting tangled!), I found myself in an awkward situation. My bedroom faces the street and let’s just say there was a slight mishap with the towel around my waist at the precise moment when my neighbour from across the road came out of her front gate. The time had come for curtains. I found…

WINNING LETTER From drab to fab Tanya Killerby-Korf of Nelspruit writes I love dabbling in furniture makeovers. If a lick of paint can enhance its beauty, then why not? I found two tables on a local buy-and-sell Facebook page and immediately saw their potential. My family weren’t convinced and couldn’t see past their drab, aged varnish and old-fashioned design; “hideous and ugly” were the words used, if I recall. I used chalk paint (it’s so easy) to transform them into these vintage, shabby chic, incredibly elegant beauties! It took the whole weekend but I loved every minute of the transformation. I also bought some decorative resin…

these focal points are on fire

Tiles save the day When heat from a newly installed fireplace caused the plaster on the wall behind it to crack, the owners of this Oranjezicht home came up with a practical but beautiful solution. They opted to tile the damaged area with these hexagonal Acuarelas porcelain tiles from Douglas Jones (R450/m²). The ADF Panora wood-burning fireplace usually comes with storage space for wood attached beneath it, but they decided to have it removed so the fireplace sits directly on the concrete shelf. Without a doubt, the fireplace is the central feature of our lounge. – Ute Faure Design in mind For a touch of drama, an oversized black stainless-steel flue was added to this open fireplace in Ute Faure’s Bo-Kaap home. Designed and installed by Berrisford Construction, the fireplace features a hearth made…
