The other day, someone referred to the ‘ups’ and ‘downs’ that we are experiencing during this Covid-19 pandemic as a “coronacoaster” – like a rollercoaster ride at the fun fair. Except that in reality it is anything but fun. But, as one does on a rollercoaster, we cling to that car for dear life because we definitely don’t want to fall out. And you comfort yourself with the knowledge that the topsy-turvy ride will come to a stop at some point. Meanwhile, many of us are still working from home – these days it’s a safe little cocoon in which we can attend a telephonic meeting in-between unpacking the dishwasher or pulling out weeds. (Just don’t cut your finger with the pruning shears; it tends to distract you – and your colleagues…

your space

WINNING LETTER Renovation inspiration Lynette Whittaker of Mossel Bay writes I’ve been a subscriber to your publication for as long as there’s been a Home. There’s a stack of them in every room of our house. And they get read time and again by the whole family. We’re avid renovators/interior enthusiasts and have found so many good ideas and inspiration in your magazine. I can send you albums full of ‘before & after’ projects we’ve tackled. Because of you. I have found so many suppliers, entrepreneurs and shops, because of you. Today, I was sitting in the sun on my couch (on Mother’s Day) and looking through back copies of Home for ideas for our bathroom. My partner has decided to use this lockdown time to renovate it. Maybe not the best time…

what’s new

CREATE, INNOVATE! WHO Zelda van der Walt WHERE Newcastle, KwaZulu-Natal BUSINESS Blokk HER WORK What started out as a hobby for Zelda, turned into a small business two years ago when more and more friends and family started requesting some of her handmade wooden tile blocks. “The faux tiles are decorated with a variety of raw materials, such as concrete and paint, as well as transfers. Each piece is handmade and has a matte finish, giving the tiles a ‘vintage’ feel,” Zelda explains. The designs are constantly changing and the collections are updated frequently; you can buy a single tile (from R95) or mix and match to create a unique artwork. Blokk started trading at art festivals and trade fairs, and has now expanded by launching an online shop, making the handmade pieces available anywhere…

old made new!

For good measure A creative display of treasured measuring cups and spoons adds tons of charm and personality to Manuel and Jenny Cernades’ new kitchen in Linden, Johannesburg (see the full kitchen on page 40). “Some of these measuring spoons were passed down from my grannies, and others I have been collecting for over 30 years,” Jenny says. She took the top off an old table and used half of it to create the display board. Each item has its own nail keeping it in place and ready for use. Different coloured panels on the original wood make for interesting texture in the otherwise monochrome kitchen. The collection now has pride of place between two window frames made from recycled Oregon pine. Window frames from Orejen Trendy trellis Nadine Theron of Worcester isn’t a fan…

‘the best place under the sun’

WHO LIVES HERE? Mariëtte and Peter Bouwer; their son Martin (22) visits over weekends WHERE Bosplasie, Onrus River SIZE 430m2 On the banks of the Onrus River and a stone’s throw from the ocean lies a slate-grey house filled with the wondrous beauty that only a bold creative could put together. Here you are taken on a trip with the homeowners, artist Mariëtte Bouwer and her husband Peter, not just to distant lands and all corners of South Africa where they have collected colourful mementoes, but also to a bygone era with antiques and heirlooms, many of which have been given a fresh new look. It is a true spectacle that delights the heart and soul. Little wonder then that Mariëtte calls herself a dreamer. “I would love to have been a traveller by profession...”…

[ mariëtte’s décor tips ]

“I’m a bit of a rebel when it comes to following interior décor rules! I think the soul of a house, what you think is beautiful, what you treasure and find practical all depends on individual taste. Feel free to create your own interior design rules,” says Mariëtte. • Combine different fabrics and textures to create a wonderful atmosphere. “For me, it starts with walls in various shades of grey, against which the colours and textures I use are shown off to perfection. I even sanded some walls to create a rougher texture and a livelier look.” • A uniform floor creates a beautiful whole and comfortable flow throughout the house. “I play with loose rugs in various sizes and shapes. Sometimes, I toss rugs on top of each other for texture.” •…
