hello

My godchild is cheeky. She’s 11, and has more than enough to say for herself. Full of witticisms, that one. The other day she was moaning to my mom about something. Ouma, fast approaching 80, was irritable and clearly at her wit’s end when she snapped at Leake: “Just do whatever you want”. To which Leake replied: “When a lady says ‘Do whatever you want’, rather take a deep breath and do nothing.” What’s that saying? Out of the mouths of babes... It was also she who one day said to the poor Labrador: “Stand aside, you are in my beauty space”. And told her father that they needed a bigger car because then her sisters could sit “there at the back in Hartenbos” and she could be “right at the front in Stellenbosch”…

your space

WINNING LETTER Garden inspiration Suzette Nortjé of Sasolburg writes One day I happened to be travelling through Sharpeville when I came across this beautiful garden. Residents really battle with their refuse as the municipality doesn’t take it away. There are hardly any clean open spaces but as the locals explained to me: what must they do when they don’t have a vehicle to take it to the dump? But in the middle of all of this is a garden oasis: it’s tiny – about 5m – but absolutely lovely. The grass is green, the plants are healthy and avid gardener Samuel Thokoa has created a focal point with thoughtfully placed plants in an interesting design. I’m lucky to get bags of kraal manure, so one day I decided to deliver some to him.…

a change is as good as a holiday!

Block party When we featured Bryony Webster and Johnny Scholtz’s Melville home in our June 2018 issue, their kitchen cupboards were off-white. Soon after, Bryony jumped in and started a quick kitchen renovation with a pastel palette – and just look at the dreamy results! In three days, they transformed their kitchen with a few (carefully applied) licks of paint. Bryony was inspired by an image of a 1960s colour-blocked kitchen she spotted online. “People either love the cupboards or they think it’s too much. Mostly, they seem to like them,” she says. “I’m a maximalist and a ‘thrifter’, so I’m always picking up bits and pieces from second-hand shops which I use to add to the layers in my home.” Bryony created a digital mock-up of the space to plan which…
