on the décor scene
Local is lekker!
We love the vibrant colours of this Ndebele-style scatter from online shop homeartist.co.za (R269.99 with foam inner; 50 x 50cm). You’ll also find eye-catching clocks and wall art; they ship at no cost all over South Africa.
We’re mesmerised by this tilepatterned Beldi wallpaper from Hertex’s Cape to Casablanca collection. Each roll (10.05m x 53cm) costs R1 140 and designs range from vibrant – such as Beldi Honeysuckle (above) and Beldi Deep Jungle (right) – to more subtle hues with metallic embellishments. View the entire range at hertex.co.za.
Be sure to pop in at Tuka at 10 Northumberland Street in Bellville, Cape Town for hand-picked and lovingly transformed secondhand and antique pieces from all over the country. The store name was derived from the Afrikaans word “toeka” which affectionately means “old times”. They also have a store at Picardi Place in Rawsonville; go to facebook.com/TukaInteriors.
We love this blue gem, De Blaauwe Huijs, in Memel in the Free State! A variety of antique, retro and kitsch décor items are on offer – find them on President Steyn Street; call 073 426 5280.
