Today on homify, we explore and admire three attractive and fantastic South African homes. The style and decor options for South African homes may be modern and minimalist, industrial and eclectic or even an homage to cosy country charm. The interior style depends on the taste and choice of the owner, the architects and even where the home is located. In this feature we consider the colour palette, details and materials of kitchens, living rooms and even bedrooms. So prepare to be amazed by the contrast that makes these homes a sensational sight!

This kitchen is warm, cosy and inviting. The all-white cabinets, along with the strong workspace and simple pastel colour palette adds to the charm. The modern appliances and large gas stove brings a designer element into the space, while the glazed cabinets are reminiscent of the ornament display you've seen in your grandma's home.

Kitchen 2: Sleek and shiny

The kitchen design here is filled with strong personality and a strict colour scheme. The darker tones utilised in the decor along with the white is a great contrast, but the kitchen definitely has more of a minimalist design… perfect for an upmarket apartment in the city.
