The May issue of SA Home Owner is packed with fabulous design ideas to inspire our readers to create cosy and chic homes. Here are a few – just to whet your appetite.
David Wantling, a member of macD, says fireplaces come in classic and contemporary designs in both an in-built and freestanding format. Popular in the fireplace market are “modern closed woodburning fires that are very safe, efficient, eco-friendly and considered to be carbon-neutral”.
Cobus Lourens from Swartland: “Making sure that your home is well insulated goes a long way to making it more of a comfortable space to live in. It also promises that you will use much less electricity to warm it up in winter, which will also save you a lot of money on utility bills”.
Selma Zaifoglu, director of Linear Concepts, says the latest bar trends incorporate minimal or linear designs that create a sleek and sophisticated look in the entertainment area. “A bar design can complement the modern feel of an open-plan home layout if the design moves away from a heavy look.
If you’re looking for an option that forms the focal point of your kitchen space, you need look no further than a stand-alone range, says AGA South Africa’s Raig Russell. “A stand-alone becomes the centrepiece in the home. Should one wish to renovate, it is easier to work around a stand-alone than a built-in oven.”
Dulux South Africa’s colour consultant Palesa Ramaisa suggests adding warmth with neutrals on your walls. “A great colour to use is the Dulux Colour of the Year (2019) – Crème Brûlée. The honey-toned colour will not only provide a cosy feel, but also sophistication to your bathroom.”
