Tucked away in a leafy suburb in Cape Town stands a statement-making home – not only for the modern, glass-fronted architecture but more so for its vibrant interiors. It was the homeowner’s affinity for colour – and a multitude of materials – that informed the creative journey. ‘By working with the homeowner’s wide and varied art collection we were able to create spaces that allow for a dynamic dialogue between the artworks and furnishings,’ says ARRCC director Mark Rielly.
“By working with the homeowner’s wide and varied art collection we were able to create spaces that allow for a dynamic dialogue between the artworks and furnishings”. - ARRCC director Mark Rielly Upstairs, the bedrooms are an exercise in highenergy decorating, as per the homeowner’s brief.
‘The children’s bedrooms feature bold primary colours and paint-splashed walls, with playful elements such as hammocks and bucket stools adding youthful freshness,’ says ARRCC designer Sarika Jacobs. More grown up, yet equally charming, the main guest bedroom continues the home’s pattern play through its Graffito wallpaper by Kelly Wearstler and customdesigned rug, which create imaginative shapes through their free-flow lines. OKHA’s geometric Rayon table lamps in stainless steel elegantly flank the bed.
A private working space furnished with John Vogel’s Time Stood Still writing desk for Southern Guild and green-blue polycarbonate Ella swivel chair by EDRA overlook the balcony and garden beyond, while the en-suite bathroom also enjoys this panorama, its walllength mirror reflecting the mountainside sunlight.
