The South African home doesn't feature any specific details, design elements or decor,  instead it's just like the history of the country… rich in a blend of colonial, traditional and sensational landscapes. The homes we visit in this feature are just that, a merger of architectural design, modernity and rustic aspects, along with revitalising sunshine and of course panoramic views, let's begin picking and choosing the perfect details for a magnificent home that is proudly South African, with the help from professionals, naturally!

1. Charcoal colour exterior with textured walls and lovely external lighting

2. A dramatic double storey with stone wall accents

3. A perfect swimming pool for a grand home

4. Keeping the landscape in mind for a modern farm house

5. Opt for some rustic details for a lovely living room

6. Extend your living room with a terrific terrace and take advantage of a spacious backyard

7. There's nothing more spectacular than waking up to a refreshing view of the mountain from your bedroom

8. Be daring and different with some sleek black kitchen cabinets

9. An exposed brick wall adds an industrial decor to your living room

10. A neutral colour scheme for the kitchen is a trendy and tasteful choice

11. A pretty mural for your bathroom

12. Enjoy the summer sun from your terrace at any time of the day

13. Delightful dining with a view of the garden for a comfortable breakfast

14. A luxurious infinity pool with the ocean in the background

The coastline of South Africa means this pool can be implemented almost anywhere.

15. The city of Cape Town from the balcony of a contemporary apartment

16. A full view of the backyard with a gorgeous inviting pool

17. A dressing room will keep the bedroom organised and uncluttered

18. A neutral bathroom with a textured stone wall for a rustic effect
