We used a combination of structured and organic designs to keep the look contemporary with a softer, homely feel.
The combination of the latest textures and layers were the foundation of this project. We ensured this was carried through each room, to allow for consistency in the way that technology was integrated into it. After all, we wanted our client to be fully automated at the click of a button.
This home’s interior design and décor inspiration came from the surroundings by using neutral, earthy tones and a blues to compliment the colours.
Soft up-lighting delivers a soothing experience as you move from one room to the next, with an open, continuous flow. Floor to ceiling curtains frames large windows, to create the illusion that indoor and outdoor spaces merge with ease. We used stark lines to represent the rustic appeal of country homes, while at the same time keeping the design modern and updated.
We did this by using colors that blend and harmonize in each space quite beautifully. A glass-covered en-suite in the bedroom helped us to optimize the space available while creating a stark modern look and feel with this approach. We also embraced subtle colors, strong lines and different shapes, to break each room off from the other, while also making sure the space created the illusion of flow.
Although the emphasis is placed on stylish elegance, there are comfort elements in each room to deliver an at-home feeling. Each room is brought together perfectly to deliver a strong, modern design in a uniquely African setting. This is emphasized in the way each area offers a continuous design thread which runs through the entire property.
Wanting to create a unified space, we made use of colours, textures and finishes which complement one another throughout, reflected in the custom cabinetry, dining room, cocktail and TV units. Some of the focal points include the state-of-the-art swimming pool, which has been finished with Portland grey marble plaster, the vent-free pebble gas fireplace, custom lifestyle shutters and furniture.
We used bold lines and big pieces to its fullest advantage in order to deliver stark visual emphasis of this Meyersdal property with its architectural elements. This allowed us to deliver a design that’s both unique in statement and incredibly inviting to its residents. Beautiful hardwood pieces brought outside elements into the home to delight and blur the lines of interior and exterior.
