my dad always said

you should never wish your life away. But as I sit and write this editor’s note – it’s the end of November – I’m counting the days until the end of the year. Put it this way: if 2020 were a WhatsApp group, the words “Wicus Pretorius left” would be the sum total of my December contribution. Fortunately, there’s sweet relief for stressed souls in this issue of Home, spaces that invite you to relax and unwind; houses and holiday homes that give us renewed energy to face the New Year. In my mind’s eye, I’m on a road trip from house to house, with my dog Asgat in the back of the station wagon. At the Kommetjie home of our Rookie Stylist winner (our annual Instagram competition in partnership with MRP…

your space

WINNING LETTER Peace and quiet Karen Leigh of Cape Town writes Some mornings, I wake with a sense of unease, not knowing where I belong. At this moment, coffee calls. Instead of lists and ‘what-ifs’, I situate myself on the stoep daybed with cats and dog, birds and trees, flowers and Home. I start settling into stillness, greenness and beauty. What is not important and what does not sustain, drops away in this nourishing moment. Thanks for your companionship. Thanks for being with me, as I give myself time to find joy. From this base, I can go about my day. In the mode Nicky Webb of East London writes The other day, Iwas reading an article about “Project Mode”. Project Mode happens on Sunday evening when you’re reading Home and see an awesome DIY…

The shape of water You might think you’ve been transported to a medina in Morocco, but this exotic star-shaped pool is located in the courtyard of the charming Nooitgedacht Country House outside Swellendam. “The house and pool were built by the previous homeowners 12 years ago,” says current owner Danielle de Wet. “We lived here when we bought the farm five years ago, before turning it into luxury self-catering accommodation.” The house is built around the courtyard and many of the living areas and bedrooms have doors that open onto it, creating an intimate space where you can relax without any intrusion from the outside world. “If it’s too windy to sit out on the front stoep, the courtyard provides the perfect spot!” says Danielle. If you’d like to create your own Moroccan-style…

WHO LIVES HERE? Charles and Candice Nortje; their golden retrievers Grace, Delilah, Lily, Summer and Bluebell; and their Westie George. WHERE Kommetjie SIZE 342m² “Our home is our haven away from the chaos of the outside world. There really is no place we’d rather be…” says Candice Nortje, who lives in the seaside village of Kommetjie. With a keen eye for décor and knack for curating, a sanctuary is exactly what Candice has created in the Nortjes’ delightful family home situated in the Klein Slangkop Eco Estate bordered by pristine beaches and the Table Mountain National Park. “It really is nothing short of idyllic and it feels as if we’re permanently on holiday, even though we’re just 45 minutes from Cape Town.” Candice is this year’s winner of Home’s Rookie Stylist competition in partnership with MRP…

candice’s tips for styling in a specific palette

• If you’re on a tight budget, collect items over time and invest in a few special pieces that you really love. • Select a showpiece then build around it with items in the same hue as well as neutral tones to create balance. • When styling a collection of monochrome items, create visual interest with a variety of shapes, sizes and textures. • Collections have more impact when styled as a group, instead of scattered randomly around a space. • Create visual boundaries and eliminate clutter by styling objects on a shelf, in a cabinet or on a tray. • To create a timeless feel, choose items that speak to your heart, rather than those currently on trend.
