Cape Town’s Most Expensive Home

Sitting at the top of South Africa’s luxury property market, this home tagged ‘The White House’ dawns the cover of our December/January issue. A presidential oasis perched in the hills of Fresnaye, readers are priveleged to get a sneak at glamorous piano bar designed by Lyn Gullan featuring a Roche Bobois Perspective sofa paired with an existing Italian Artemide Skydra light fixture.

Casual Seaside Sophistication

The interiors of this Long Island, US renovation are all about striking the right balance between cosiness, comfort, and sophistication — all while making a space that would live up to the wear and tear of toddlers. In the bedroom and extending to the rest of this home, you will see a mixture of Pierre Frey, Dedar, Mokum, and Crosby Street Studio Fabrics surrounded by sculptural furnishings.

Down to Earth

This home in the Durban suburb of Salt Rock dawns glass doors, which open completely to allow a seamless flow into the outdoor area. Designed by Julia Rutherfoord and Nikhil Tricam, the bucolic setting of the home lends itself to the perfect harmony of indoor-outdoor living.

Mezzanine Marvel

Books are the focal point in this Moscow apartment’s living room. Beyond the bibliophillic design, you will be charmed to find armchairs by Cassina, a coffee table by Baxter, art by Dmitry Gorbunoc, and an impressive cone pendant by Wastberg. With an eclectic mixture of styles and design eras, this home is a beacon of what it means for a home to be the true reflection of its resident’s tastes.
