Brief was to fit out entire 4 bedroom house, patio and lapa area except for kitchen and bathrooms, which will be renovated and extended next year.
Client had no idea what style to choose… ..just make it nice, he said.
I usually don’t have a concept in mind at the start, until something, however small, triggers an idea and then everything falls into place immediately! This happened at a retail store where I was with client to see what he liked. A hanging glass pendant did the trick for me… … the colour, the fusion of copper and frosted green. That was all I needed and the Plantation style home took shape.
We changed the floors to a vinyl wood look to certain rooms, as budget was and would always be, a constraint. All windows were dressed with flyscreens and custom fit shutters in a beautiful Plascon Jade Glow paint. The whole house was painted in Earthcote hues. All light fittings were changed to new and current designs. All new doors were custom made and fitted with new door furniture. And all new furniture was chosen for all rooms and exterior lapa and patio. And of course all new audio/visual components and fit out was attended to. A focal wall was clad in American white ash wood in the TV Room.
Client and his family are ecstatic with their new home. I am thrilled at the outcome and wish my client all the happiness in his home.
