On page 142, Shereen Lurie talks to us about a well-designed patio and what you need to achieve this – including the latest patio trends, looking at furniture and accessories. Moving on to my favourite part of the home – the bedroom. On this subject I chat to experts about all you need to know regarding getting a good night’s sleep – from mattresses to pillows and décor. See what you need to make your…

Barali is an exciting new sustainable design brand. At its helm are creative director Mookho Ntho and operations director Moliehi Mafantiri.

a home for all reasons

The architects and designers were given a complex brief for the alteration of this holiday home. On the one hand, when the family are ready for a getaway, it has to provide a soothing space to relax and unwind. On the other, because it is also to serve as a retreat for corporate executives, it needs to have a fairly neutral ambience. “With magnificent views from picture windows, the play of contrast and texture makes a tactile haven.” The solution? A home with a distinctly bold ambience verging on the masculine, and which still sets the stage for rejuvenation. This was achieved by paying careful attention to both the materials and palette used. For instance, leather and wood introduced a decidedly sophisticated note, which was echoed in shades of chocolate, cream, greys and…
