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
