Interior Design // November 2018
The brief was to fully furnish the luxury self catering apartment in De Waterkant to the standard that international high paying tourists demand. The furniture needed to be simple, high impact and functional – fitting in well with the cape culture and the historical area in which the house is positioned.
The space was very limited so very clever use of design was required to give the impression that the apartment was larger than it really was. To keep the space uncluttered – simple and homely
For the lounge – the Nkwana corner unit was made to size to fit in perfectly. The bedrooms used the Imbiza and Duzu ranges to bring in some modern retro elements, and the external areas brought in the simple and trusty Kholeti design.
woods used and finishes
All internal furniture was Black Ofram – due to its monotone – tying in very well with the colour scheme of the house.
External furniture was plantation teak to withstand the beating the cape sun and rain was going to surely dish out.
External finishes – Oiled to reduce maintenance and bring out the warm colours.
Internal finishes – water based Rystix to keep the Ofram looking natural and raw.
Upholstery was neutral and rope chosen silver Grey… all to blend in with the rest of the house and décor.
