I am absolutely besotted with our new Winter 14 cover house – a glorious seaside family home in the world’s 2014 Design Capital, Cape Town. But it’s not just the home’s striking monochrome exterior and incredible art-filled insides which have me giddy… the home’s landscape is just as creative, practical and design-savvy.
The soft grey of olive trees is referenced through minimalist, lime-washed furniture, softness introduced through a cocoon of dense greenery and patches of vibrant green grass. And that rooftop deck? I have no words… It’s not hard to see why Cape Town design has emerged as a frontrunner on the international stage.
