hello

Doing nothing is an art, and in my opinion it’s a skill we all should hone. I’m not advocating laziness – on the contrary.

WINNING LETTER For the women… Kk Bulunga of Pretoria writes As a young man, I’ve done two things this month that I never would have thought possible in order to give my mother a rest. It’s Women’s Month, after all, and this gives us an opportunity to put ourselves in their shoes and show them that we appreciate every little thing. I’ve been cooking supper at home, every night. I run out of ideas at times and wonder how my mom does it every night with ease. She is a self-taught natural master of traditional South African food and never refers to a cookbook. I got so stressed at times and woke up in the middle of the night, thinking about what I was going to cook the next day and how I…

CREATE, INNOVATE! BUSINESS Lulasclan WHO Bonolo Helen Chepape WHERE Mafikeng HER WORK Bonolo’s work as a designer and owner of Lulasclan, a creative décor consultancy offering bespoke textiles, is inspired by her childhood and visits to her grandmother’s house in Limpopo where she was surrounded by music, art and storytelling.

Double up! When renovating her kitchen two years ago, Cape Town designer Heidi van der Westhuizen chose timeless white kitchen cupboards with classic blackwood tops. To create an exciting accent – with double the impact – she added her own vinyl tiles in eclectic designs on both the stove splashback and the kickplate. “The beauty of using vinyl is that I can change the look regularly – I don’t have to commit forever!” says Heidi. Instead of tiles... Jeanette Oosterhuis of Milnerton describes her style as classic; she prefers a neutral palette of grey, white and black throughout her home. When it came to creating a statement bathroom on a relatively small budget, her mother suggested De Waal Art wallpaper instead of tiles. “The wall covering just added the wow factor I was looking…
