HU­BERT ZANDBERG,

Condé Nast House & Garden - - ICONS -

Early child­hood mem­o­ries are among our strong­est, those fleet­ing mo­ments of height­ened sen­si­tiv­ity. It shapes our char­ac­ter and in­deed our de­sign in­spi­ra­tion. While the Ka­roo land­scape re­ally did mould my aes­thetic, how can one deny the value in a mother’s wis­dom?

Those turquoise velvet cur­tains ef­fort­lessly up­dat­ing a green and pink San­der­son flo­ral in the semi-desert sur­round­ings. Emer­ald green mo­hair and ter­ra­cotta walls in a fear­less mar­riage. My jour­ney was set.
