DECORADAR SUMARI KRIGE Owner / La Grange Interiors What’s your favourite decor store? Tonic Design in Joburg and L’Orangerie in Wynberg, Cape Town. When in doubt… Paint it black! What trend is ruffling your tail feathers? Accent/feature walls Every living room needs: Comfort. It’s imperative that seating oozes as much comfort as it does to reflect your style. The days of showroom living rooms for when the minister comes for ‘huisbesoek’ is over. We now use it on a daily basis, so comfort and a lived-in look is imperative. Quote to live by: Life is not a dress rehearsal. What can we expect from La Grange Interiors this year? We’re moving away from traditional patterns towards abstract and expressive designs. Expect vibrant colour clashes and blackened metals combined with timber or glass.  /La-Grange-Interiors

CRAIG STEEL Founding Leader and Visionary / SHF What defines South African decor and design? A respect for the abilities of our local craftsman, pushing ourselves to surpass static trends and the fact that we are world class. Where do you get your inspiration? Mostly from the bygone periods of the 50s and 60s and remodelling them for the modern era. Your top decor trend? Aged textures and minimalistic, clean lines. Brushed brass, blacks and golds are all elements I recommend for great decor going forward. Every living room needs: A statement vintage sofa – a dark leathered, deep buttoned Chesterfield from SHF will do. What can we expect from SHF this year? SHF is taking bold steps and doing the unconventional. Expect defining pieces, as well as our new vintage modern collections to be launched towards the end of the year. x @shf_sutherlands

TRADE SECRETS

We asked the experts behind some of South Africa’s leading decor brands for this season’s trends and tips KITTY DOUGLAS-JONES Marketing Director / Douglas Jones What defines South African decor and design? An ‘Afro chic’ design with a blend of European and Eastern influences. The perception is often that we are behind the rest of the world in design, but we are very much on par with trends and current ‘must haves’. What are your favourite local decor stores? Block & Chisel and Weylandts. Where do you get your inspiration? Listening to what our interior designers are looking for in the market. We then travel extensively worldwide to source for these wants and needs. Your top decor trend at the moment? Geometric shapes, especially herringbone, which is being spotted in flooring, walls, tiles, fabrics and everywhere else! Every bathroom needs: Heated towel rails for those chilly mornings. What can we expect to see with Douglas Jones this year? Geometric mosaics, new tile decor pieces and fresh choices for the interior design field. a @DouglasJonesMos TREVOR KING Marketing Director / Caesarstone South Africa What needs to change in the South African decor industry? There needs to be a greater appreciation of the role of the designer in the consumer’s mind. In my experience, our consumers are not always as design sensitive as consumers in Europe and the USA. This has an impact on what people are willing to spend – settling for cheap knock-offs instead of valuing the artistry involved in great design. Your top decor trend? Incorporating textures and natural materials into designs. Honest, raw materials take us back to a sense of authenticity and what’s important in life. What can we expect to see with Caesarstone this year? We’ll be introducing a 13mm collection, new colours, a collaboration with international designer Tom Dixon and, of course, the annual Caesarstone Kitchen of the Year competition. a @CaesarstoneSA

ED’SNOTE ‘STYLE IS A SIMPLE WAY OF SAYING COMPLICATED THINGS’

PORTRAIT PHOTOGRAPH: JESSIE BELL

- Jean Cocteau

Shot on location Mulberry & Prince Kitchen & Bar, Cape Town

EDITOR’S NOTE Every now and then I catch myself making outrageous statements about what is and isn’t good design or style. I actually have some nerve! Aesthetic attitudes and matters of artistic taste are incredibly subjective; what we each find to be beautiful is highly idiosyncratic and we need to remain liberal in our appreciation thereof. That said, as design reporters we specialise in seeking out excellence and celebrating it together with you, our readers. To help guide us on these explorations, we have developed a loose definition: Design excellence is an experience that weaves the threads of beauty, narrative, function, technology, connectivity, information and emotion logically and elegantly into our lives. It is socially, economically and environmentally responsible, relevant beyond its visual and practical intention, and conducts the spirit of the maker and the user. Design excellence exceeds expectations and is charged with an intrinsic power and potential to drive change.

selvedge of your jeans and the reaction rate of your mouse or track pad… not to mention that fabulous wallpaper or rug design. And that’s what this special issue is about: it’s a celebration of the products, designs, brands, people and experiences that we as the DECO team think are swell. These are the sources that we use in our own homes and recommend to our friends, and we wanted to share them with you too. We’re constantly on the hunt to find new and exciting leads, so share your favourites with us and send pictures of the exciting things you have done in your home – we’d love to see. Be sure to download layar (it’s free), so that you can enjoy the augmented reality version of this issue: watch the pop-up video tour, get access to bonus inspiration articles and automatically listen to the latest episode of our design and decor podcast while you’re browsing though the pages. Basically, you can fully immerse yourself in the glorious world of decor and design inspiration – you’re welcome! Being happy never goes out of style,

It also generally has the tendency to make you weak at the knees. If you’re anything like me – incredibly susceptible to beauty’s charm – you’ll know what I’m talking about. The truth is that truly great design is often the simplest – its success ineffably obvious – and it is all around us. It is the cleverly placed light switch, the

KNIVES

Savvy consumers are opting for personalisation in the kitchen, with built-in, multi-use appliances and an interesting mix of innovative materials that reflect and serve a wide range of tastes and needs.

A good knife is an essential item in any chef’s arsenal. You’ll need one of each of these.

CHEF’S KNIFE A staple in the kitchen, the chef’s knife has a strong, weighted blade and can be used for chopping and slicing all your basics.

MEAT CLEAVER The large, sturdy rectangular blade of this knife is perfect for tough tasks such as splitting large cuts of meat and spare ribs.

PAIRING KNIFE This everyday knife has a fine blade, slim cutting edge and firm tip. It’s great for peeling potatoes, fruit, vegetables and other small intricate tasks.

TRENDING: STEAM OVENS AND INDUCTION COOKING Steam ovens steam large amounts of food over multiple shelves without mingling flavours. Induction cooking heats the cooking vessel itself by magnetic induction, not thermal induction from a flame or electrical heating element. Induction cooking saves space, allows for rapid heat increase and is safer for kitchens with children.

SANTOKU KNIFE With its wide blade and curved end, this knife slices, dices and minces well. It is perfect for meat, fish and vegetables.

CARBON With a higher carbon content than stainless steel, carbon steel is easier to sharpen and retains its cutting edge for longer. As result, carbon knives are slightly more expensive than regular stainless steel ones.

From top: Casa Rox in Barcelona by Nook Architects nookarchitects.com Reale table by Carlo Mollino for Zanotta zanotta.it Minimalist kitchen by DDAANN/Mjölk architects ddaann.cz photography by Jakub Skokan, Martin Tuma / BoysPlayNice architect

KITCHEN TRIANGLE Design your kitchen for optimum efficiency, creating a triangle between the main work areas: the stove top, the fridge and sink. This will avoid unnecessary steps.

STEEL Your everyday knives tend to be made from low carbon stainless steel. They require resharpening more often than other materials, but they will not stain or discolour.

TITANIUM This metal is perfect for knives: its properties include corrosion resistance and incredible strength; and it is lightweight. Often mixed with ceramics or silver, titanium knives are durable and easy to maintain.

SURFACING From the warmest woods to hardworking metals, stone, concrete screed, reinforced glass, quartz and other innovative surface treatments, mix materials in creative combinations to create a truly unique space.

KITCHENSTYLE CHECKLIST OPEN PLAN / WORKHORSE ISLANDS From breakfast bars to butcher blocks, open plan kitchens with islands centralise work and play, offering flexibility in terms of space usage, allowing you to multitask. The islands provide additional workspace, storage, room for seating and more; they truly are the main feature of a modern kitchen.

STORAGE Cramming the contents of your kitchen into a few poky cupboards is a thing of the past. Plan the storage in your kitchen very carefully; incorporate hidden cupboards, pull-out shelving, toe-kick drawers under your lower cupboards and choose multi-use appliances.

OPEN SHELVING Why hide all of your beautiful ceramics, glasses and crockery behind closed doors? An inexpensive solution that dramatically increases your storage options, creating a sense of lightness, open shelving gets our vote!

LIGHTING

from top: Open plan kitchen photography by Ricard Romain Rolling pin and apron by IKEA Ikea.com

Kitchens need three types of light: general, task and accent lighting. General lighting illuminates the whole space, task lighting is targeted to help you see what you’re doing, and accent lighting sets the overall atmosphere. Statement pendant lighting is also an effective way to integrate the kitchen with the rest of the home’s look and feel.

CONTEMPORARY COUNTRY No longer as frumpy as before, the modern country kitchen combines fashionable convenience with vintage colours such as duck egg blue, mint or pale lemon with timber.

QUARTZ COUNTERS It’s no wonder that manufactured quartz countertops are gaining popularity. Unlike its high-maintenance counterparts granite and marble, quartz doesn’t require sealing; it naturally repels stains and resists scratches.

SHAKER-STYLE CABINETRY Also making a comeback, this style is popular with consumers gravitating towards its simplicity and functionality in response to the current cultural obsession with all things artisanal.

HIGH-TECH

BLACK AND BLUE STEEL

All aspects of our lives are hyper-connected, and the kitchen is no exception. Homeowners are adding all manner of technical dimension to their kitchens, such as built-in charging stations and hands-free tablet holders, not to mention wifi fridges that are voice activated and look up recipes on Google for you.

Industrial kitchen style is here to stay. For the latest look, choose brushed or black instead of the shinier silver version and combine with dark colours, glass and exposed shelving.

PINK AND BLUE The 2016 Pantone colours of the year are Rose Quartz and Serenity, a colour combination that is all about tranquillity and balance. In the kitchen, these hues make the perfect accents for an all white scheme.

To strike the perfect balance when designing or updating your living room, pay attention to function, space, light, colour and texture. There is also a renewed focus on creating designated areas for gathering for meals and entertaining.

The modern home is increasingly characterised by hyperconnectivity and intelligent living, and serves as a link between our physical and digital worlds. Our furniture is a new interface through which these two worlds communicate.

FABRIC LIBRARY Oh go on, try something a little ‘out there’ with your living room materials. We’re loving quilted fabrics, leathers, velvets and dirty colours.

HOW TO CUT YOUR ELECTRICITY BILL

Make sure your living room is designed to be energy efficient: keep the temperature stable by covering your windows with curtains and your floors with carpets and rugs. Consider replacing your traditional wood-burning fireplace with an eco-friendly option like a gel-fireplace, so you lose less heat. Incorporate more indoor plants into the living area, as they increase humidity levels and moist air retains heat better. It also goes without saying almost, make sure you replace all your incandescent bulbs with LEDs or CFLs.

LIVINGSTYLE CHECKLIST ART Buy art that you love, no matter if its value will potentially rise or not. Mix your mediums; paintings add colour and mood, sculptures add depth, and mixed media pieces add texture.

FABRICS Textiles are an important element of any decor scheme; from curtains, slipcovers and pillows to table linens, choose your fabrics cleverly to tie the room together with colour and texture.

CURTAINS Whether you need to create privacy, filter light or add colour and pattern, consider the following when deciding on your drapery: are the curtains purely decorative, or do they need to serve a function? How much light can filter in or out? Lined, unlined, or interlined? Remember, hanging curtains closer to the ceiling adds height to the room.

WALLPAPER From left: Lounge setting designed by Tatiana Shishkina inroom.guru, rendered by Max Lykasov Classic Trends rendering by AMR hautesavage.com

HOW TO HANG ART: Make sure that the artwork is hung at the correct height– it should be at approximately eye level. The art gallery standard is that the centre of the painting is about 152cm from the floor. Ensure that the fittings you use are strong enough to carry the weight of the piece.

TYPES OF LIGHTING

Wallpaper is one of the easiest ways to update your living room style. There is an abundance of choices available, in various colours, patterns and textures. You can go bold, stripy, illustrative, wild or metallic… just make sure you have it hung professionally, as there is nothing worse than a botch job.

COLOUR

Different types of lighting are used at different times and for different purposes, get the right mix.

‘Colour is a universal, nonverbal language, and we all intuitively know how to speak it,’ says Leslie Harrington, colour consultant. Use colour as a tool to change the mood of your living room, using basic colour psychology. White: reflects light, peace and tranquillity Yellow: cheerful, uplifting and invigorating Red: energetic, daring and bold Blue: cooling, sedative and assuring Orange: bright, friendly and stimulating

TASK Especially if you have low levels of natural lighting, incorporate reading and floor lamps spaced between seating.

GENERAL

AMBIENT

AC CEN T

Green: relaxing, soothing and rejuvenating

A central fitted ceiling pendant or down lighting creates an even overhead lighting source for the overall area.

Similar to general lighting, an ambient source radiates a comfortable level of brightness without glare.

Create a moody atmosphere with warm lighting that bounces inwards. This can be achieved using wall sconce lighting and candles.

Purple: exotic, eccentric and mysterious Brown: restful, warming and reassuring Black: confidant, strict and heavy Grey: dreamy, subdued and neutral

There is a reason why 90% of hotels have the same floor plan: it’s simple and effective. One of the first steps to an excellent bedroom design is a well-considered floor plan that creates enough space for circulation and storage, as well as a few stylish extras.

SLEEP CYCLES

Stage 1: Drifting in and out of sleep as our muscles relax, we can still be woken up easily during this stage.

Stage 2: Conscious awareness starts to fade. The average adult will spend most of the night in this stage. Stage 3: The restorative, deep stage of sleep, during which we restore energy as well as repair muscle tissue. REM: Is characterised by random

movement of the eyes, low muscle tone and the propensity to dream vividly.

BEDROOMSTYLE TAKE A SEAT

CHECKLIST

Seating in the bedroom makes the room feel finished and inviting, and a well-planned area set aside for sitting creates a dedicated reading area. Think of including a daybed, a chair or two, or even a small couch if you have enough space. Just make sure your nook does not become a dumping ground for all your clothes though.

LIGHT AND VENTILATION It is imperative that your bedroom gets good ventilation and natural light. When designing your home, try to place the bedroom at the corner of the house, so that you can have windows on two adjacent walls.

TECH-FREE ZONE Make sure there are absolutely no cellphones, no TV and no laptops in the bedroom – you need to do a digital detox at night.

THE RIGHT AMOUNT OF PILLOWS

from left: Eclectic Black rendering by AMR hautesavage.com Amy floor lamp by Delightfull delightfull.eu

Yes you need a few pillows to make your bed look cosy and comforting... but not so many that it takes you 10 minutes of digging to get into bed. The pillow you choose to sleep on must support your neck, and make sure it is in alignment with your spine.

CURTAIN CALL

Make sure you know your grommet from your tab top when it comes to drapery lingo.

GOOD LIGHTING While darkness it best for sleeping, the bedroom needs to have adequate mood and task lighting next to the bed and cupboard area – there is nothing more frustrating than a poorly lit closet.

BEDSIDE CHIC Combine a good book, a vase of flowers, a carafe of water, a scented candle and a killer lamp for the ultimate in bedside convenience.

Whether it’s a forest or simply your back garden, plan your room around the view. If there is no view at all, why not fake it? Install a beautiful wallpaper or mural.

The support you enjoy on a TEMPUR mattress is always tailored to you. TEMPUR material is highly sensitive to the weight and warmth of your body, so no matter which position you find most comfortable, it will always adapt to your shape. This is no accident. TEMPUR sleep scientists and engineers have spent years perfecting the brand – a high-performance material made from a complex network of interconnected viscoelastic cells. When you lie on the mattress, the weight and warmth of your body causes the viscoelastic material to soften and you will feel it gently conforming to your shape. And when you move or get up, the material becomes firmer again, and expands to its original form. The response is so light and so gentle, that once you lie down, you feel weightless – it’s easy to forget there’s anything there at all. Because nothing conforms and adapts like TEMPUR.

The evolution of the bathroom from an exclusively utilitarian space into a beautiful wellness room for living, relaxing and recuperating has opened up opportunities for design and technology to show off.

STYLE DIRECTORY ELLEDECORATION.CO.ZA 41


Expect to see even more decor and furniture pieces in the bathroom, for example moody lighting, stools, armchairs, rug-style bath mats and feature sanitaryware. The focus has shifted from purely functional to ambience and energy efficiency.

SURFACING

Up the glam factor with the materials you choose in the bathroom. Yes they need to be practical, but that doesn’t mean you need to sacrifice style: introduce colour and texture.

TRENDING: STEAM SHOWERS Steam has been used since antiquity as a health treatment for a variety of ailments, from chest infections to joint pain. In a steam shower, a humidifying steam generator produces warm, comforting and relaxing vapour that engulfs a person. The many benefits of steam include healthy skin, relaxed muscles, infection treatment, increased circulation, a metabolism boost and stress relief.

BATHROOMSTYLE CHECKLIST A FOCAL POINT Create a focal point with a walk-in shower and a freestanding tub.

LIGHT You don’t have to be conservative with lighting in the bathroom anymore; you can choose anything from glamorous chandeliers and clusters of hand-blown globes to simple downlights, as long as the solution is functional, sets the mood and makes a statement.

S’TILING Tiles are on trend in a big way, and they are the perfect choice for the bathroom: durable, striking and water-resistant. Playing with scale, dimension, colour, pattern and materials, innovations in tiling design mean that you can really take your bathroom to the next level. DECO suggests oversized tiles, herringbone design, earth-coloured tones and artisanal tiles crafted by hand.

TECHNOLOGY Snazzy new tech will add a little more entertainment to your morning ritual – water-resistant music systems can operate wirelessly, and connect to your smartphones and other audio devices so you can sing along in the shower.

BATHROOM PLANTS Not sure which indoors plants are best for the bathroom? We’ve got you covered:

AU NATURAL Wood’s enduring appeal is a hot favourite with bathroom designers. New timber products enable you to bring natural charm into the bathroom in unexpected ways, such as on the wall, a sink or even a bath.

DOUBLE WHAMMY Double showers are the way forward. It means you don’t have to share, and it creates a more leisurely and unusual shower experience. Another shower trend to look out for is the shower seat; who says you have to stand while washing?

JADE PLANT ‘Crassula Ovata’ A.k.a the ‘money plant’, according to feng shui, this succulent attracts prosperity.

ZZ PLANT ‘Zamioculcas Zamiifolia’ This low maintenance glossy, geometric plant is perfect for both modern and cosy settings.

SNAKE PLANT ‘Sansevieria’ The long, architectural leaves of ‘mother-in-laws tongue’are the perfect geometric statement.

BOSTON FERN ‘Nephrolepis Exaltata’ Place them in the lightest spot and keep the soil moist, to add texture to the bathroom.

STORAGE Plan your storage efficiently, as zen and clutter are like oil and water. You need to find clever solutions to hide your hair dryer, potions, linen and unmentionables away. You can also probably halve the amount of stuff you have in any case.

DINE OUT These days, the art of cooking outside is far more elaborate than a backyard braai. Homeowners are installing comprehensive outdoor kitchens with features that include freezers, cooking islands and recycling systems.

HOW TO PLANT BULBS Bulbs are actually very easy to grow – you just need to know when, where and how to care for them.

Plant bulbs when the soil temperature has cooled down– they need to be in the ground by the last week of May.

Buy your flower bulbs around February, when there is the biggest selection to choose from.

A 3cm layer of dry grass, peat, compost leaves or tree bark should be spread over your bulbs after planting. Every four or five days the soil should be soaked to a depth of about 15cm (root level).

Before planting, loosen the soil to a depth of at least 20cm. Read the instructions on the pack to see exactly what depth to plant the bulbs.

GARDEN DESIGN PRINCIPLES Take the mystery out of landscaping by paying attention to the basic tenets of good landscape design: line, light, texture, form, scale, pattern, colour, rhythm and variety. These can be incorporated though your choice of plants, paving, fences and furniture. The key is to view your garden as an ecosystem, not just a series of plants and features; everything needs to work together in harmony.

SMALL-SCALE You can harvest your fruit, veg and herbs from your windowsill, terrarium, living wall or any other suitable container! All you need is good light, ventilation and drainage.
