Plenty of space

Home (South Africa) - - CREATIVE SPACES -

The Richard­sons bought their home five years ago – they wanted to be closer to the kids' schools and they were af­ter an older home that had plenty of space for en­ter­tain­ing.

“We used to live in a se­cu­rity es­tate and des­per­ately wanted some­thing with char­ac­ter,” Brid­get ex­plains.

When they found this house, she and Bruce fell in love with its ar­chi­tec­tural de­tail, arched door­ways, high ceil­ings, Ore­gon pine floors and, of course, the cor­ru­gated-iron cot­tage from which Brid­get and her two as­sis­tants run the busi­ness. A print of the world map in the din­ing area was de­signed and cre­ated by Love Let­ters Sta­tionery. “When we’re stuck for what to make for din­ner, we pick a coun­try on the map and find a recipe for a classic dish that orig­i­nates there,” Brid­get says.
