Apartment style is redefined in this contemporary villa. Shades and textures of grey and oak create a sense of calm that is brought to life with splashes of vivid colours, luxurious textiles and remarkable South African modern art.

Comfortable and classy – that was the brief for this new three-bedroom home. Recently acquired from the estate, the owner knew from the start exactly what he wanted from the space: a simple modern house with a mature aesthetic.

The owner handed the blank canvas over to the interior designer for her to work her magic and turn the shell into a haven.
Considering the owner’s personality and things he enjoys most, the interior designer created an inviting space that boasts discerning taste. The designer says: “I was briefed to create a warm and luxurious contemporary interior that created multiple spaces within which the home owner, an avid reader, could escape into the pages of his books. However he didn’t want to do so at the exclusion of the well-being of others, so requested that we easily establish shared spaces that encourage companionship. The beautifully stylish yet calm mood created was met with ecstatic appreciation and approval.”

Commenting on his home, the owner says he loves the furniture: “All my furniture was custom-made for my house. I love all of it and anyone who has been to my home complements the pieces curated.”
The owner explains how he loves his home: “I actually cannot explain the feeling I get from my home and being in this space. I love coming back home from being out, because every part of this house has a way of making me feel warm and welcomed, wanting to linger longer.”

Definitely a space this bachelor can retreat to after a busy work day, this home shows exquisite style and captures the owner’s lifestyle, making them the perfect fit.
