We have heard it before, that behind every successful man there is a woman. I don’t think we give the women in our lives enough credit when it comes to the roles they willingly take on in our lives, as mothers, sisters, wives, best friends, etc. When I joined the interior design industry, it also surprised me that it’s usually the women who take the lead in providing information about what they want in the design of their home, as well as the small details that need to be addressed during the renovation.

more than meets the eye

Is the perfectionist in you disturbed by the sight of a gaping black rectangle taking centre stage in the living room whenever the TV is switched off? Then you need to check out Danish AV tech maker Bang & Olufsen’s Beovision Harmony. The screen slips behind two sound-system panels housed in oak and aluminium when it is switched off. When you’re in the mood to catch your favourite series, the panels fan out like butterfly wings, and the screen rises at the tap of a button on the remote. Within seconds, the stunning 77-inch LG OLED C9 screen, complemented by a state-of-art three-channel DSP-based sound system, comes to life, delivering ultra-sharp images with optimum brightness and crystal-clear sound quality. The Beovision Harmony can also be used to stream music wirelessly from your…

However, as we approach the end of the year – and while landscapes in the western hemisphere are bathed in autumnal hues – we’re seeing a growing demand for this particular shade among trendy homeowners. Such a mellow yellow conjures up images of a dusky sunset as seen through tinted glasses behind steam rising from a cup of piping hot tea. In the living room, this subdued yellow evokes a calming ambience and helps to balance out the other colours in the space. It also adds a sense of depth, making the room feel roomier. the…
