hello

My neighbours are busy with comprehensive renovations. Shortly after they bought the house next to mine, Antony came around, plans in hand, to show me what they intended to do and to apologise in advance for the upheaval that lay ahead. (It was quite a commotion; the neighbours on the other side summarily cancelled their lease and fled back to the Netherlands...) I think Antony expected to be faced with opposition and a good dose of crankiness; instead, he got curious me. Little did he know what I do for a living and even less that a building site doesn’t scare me – least of all, a renovation project! Because if I can’t change my own home, I can always live vicariously through the dreams of my neighbours, right? Now and again,…

WINNING LETTER A labour of love Kirsty Stokker of Pretoria writes For a long time I wanted a windmill on my large dining room wall. My husband organised one as a surprise for our 10 wedding anniversary (which is tin) – all the way from a farm in the Karoo. It even has a few bullet holes! It was a real labour of love putting it up on the wall but it’s pretty unique! Makeover magic! Lizet Smit of Wakkerstroom writes In August 2017, we left our busy lives and stressful jobs in Jo’burg and moved into our dream home. Our property is about 150…

what’s new

CREATE, INNOVATE! WHO Bruce and Tariro Mutenure WHERE Sedgefield THEIR WORK When Bruce and his wife Tariro were retrenched from the same company in 2017, they drew on their experience in glass-fusing – they had been taking courses in their spare time and loved it! After a few refresher courses, the couple opened their store Mlink Glass Studio at Scarab Arts & Crafts Village in Sedgefield where they now sell their beautiful handmade pieces. To find out more, go to mlinkglass.co.za. We love the bold patterns we’ve come to expect of Skinny laMinx – and now they’re venturing into plain fabrics too! The round Colour Pop scatters (R495, including inner; 40cm D) are available in Sage, Lemon, Shell and Cocoa. They each have a complementary trim – a lovely finishing touch! Check…

make the cut

On the back bench The easiest way to increase available seating at a long dining table is with a bench – there’s always room for one more and this way you avoid a bunch of bulky chairs crowding one another! But one long bench can become impractical in terms of mobility. The Beinart family of Cape Town came up with a clever solution: they had two separate but identical benches made by Wiid Design; these are neatly positioned next to each other but can easily be separated so guests can get in and out. The best use of space! Have a heart When asked what colour she wanted her playroom door to be painted, little Anri Human (7) of Durban immediately chose yellow. She also requested a heart-shaped window to let in the…
