Just three el­e­ments – wall­pa­per (this was pur­chased on­line in a spe­cific size rather than a roll), an art­work and a chan­de­lier re­trieved from stor­age – trans­formed an or­di­nary lava­tory into a lux­u­ri­ous loo. “It’s a very small space, so I wanted it to pack a punch,” says homeowner An­dré Kruger of Brook­lyn in Pre­to­ria. The theme was in­spired by the paint­ing above the loo. “I have a deal with my good friend and sculp­tor Ruhan Janse van Vu­uren that when ei­ther of us goes abroad, we bring back a kitch gift for the other. He brought me this art­work from Am­s­ter­dam, which I had framed. It proves that you don’t need to spend much to trans­form a space; you could do it for less than you might spend host­ing a good din­ner party!”
