hello

and took a boat trip to the tiny volcanic island of Nea Kameni. Our tour guide was a modern-day Greek god. The women swooned. His smile was straight out of a toothpaste advert and he sprinted up the hill to the lookout point with a grin on his face, while the rest of us stumbled after him, panting. Impressive, I thought. But then he opened his mouth and raised the stakes even higher: he could speak seven languages fluently. The words tripped off his tongue like honey off a hot spoon; it was as if he’d swallowed Google Translate; a real polyglot. As a lover of languages, I hung on every word while the rest just sat and stared. Muttering under my breath, I said that with those looks and language skills he must be…

your space

WINNING LETTER Pre-loved treasures Mike Slabolepszy of Edgemead, Cape Town writes As an avid Home reader, I thought I’d share what I have created from secondhand items I’ve found over the years at car boot sales, garage sales, markets and thrift stores or been given as hand-me-downs. Nothing was bought new. All of these pieces have a story or history behind them – and some of them took a long time to find. Now it’s time for me to scale down, so I will be selling up but I thought you might like to take a look... Moroccan-inspired makeover Monika van der Westhuizen writes For some time now, I have been dreaming about a Bohemian-themed living space. The Moroccan rugs on page 13 of your April issue just confirmed that I should redecorate my sitting…

CREATE, INNOVATE! WHO Esmé Kruger WHERE Swellendam BUSINESS The Hand Printing Studio HER WORK After doing several courses in textile design, printing and dyeing, fine artist Esmé Kruger fell in love with the process of hand-printing and established The Hand Printing Studio in 2018. With the help of her team, she hand-prints designs onto fabric for her collection of scatter covers, dishcloths, tablecloths, scarves and throws. “The designs are inspired by the South African landscape and our diverse heritage,” Esmé says. “We do very short runs by hand on 100% cotton, with lino print or silk-screening techniques. We use water-based inks and add embroidery to create really special pieces.” Esmé also runs workshops on hand-printing techniques; see more at @The Hand Printing Studio on Facebook.

something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue

A loving touch Over the years and in bits and pieces, Rosemary Barker has updated the façade of her Simon’s Town home. Paying homage to the 1890s Victorian villa, she retained many of the original features of the house, such as the sash windows (two of which still boast their original glass panes!), and had new shutters made to replicate those that had perished. A boring strip of tar was dug up at the front of the house and replaced with rosemary, lavender and wild buchu bushes. Inspired by the open skies and sea, Rosemary added touches of cool blue to the exterior of her otherwise white house. Too beautiful! A safe space Security bars create a cottage pane effect on the home’s original sash windows. On either side of the front door, Rosemary painted the words…
