This room was cleverly designed to harness the feeling of a large, luxurious space. The full-length drapes and Edwardian inspired couches, adds to that “royal” feel. The tall ceilings set the space for those beautiful chandeliers flowing down to light up the area at night. Wooden flooring is always a great idea to add a sense of modern charm that complements the rest of the accessories and accents within the living space.
The team at Francois Marais Architects developed this bathroom into a stunning and modern retreat. The large freestanding bathtub allows the homeowners to relax and unwind from their busy day. Time is made efficient with his and hers basins, each with their individual storage cupboards creating more functionality. The large window also brings the natural light in from the outside reducing the need to switch the light on too early. By using these natural colours and wooden finishes, this bathroom displays an almost spa-like environment.
This master minimalist bedroom in Johannesburg is very rustic and comfortable. It has a unique light feature cascading from the tall ceiling and the extra window allows for more light that is natural. This room isn’t very large but the designers made full use of the space without any cluttering feel to it.
