Things we love
“Our home definitely tells the story of our life together and it is constantly changing and evolving,” says Jayne. “When we bought the house, we had a tiny budget for decorating so we have gradually added layers over the past five years. We love finding second-hand pieces of furniture with a bit of character and have spent many hours browsing through Knysna’s secondhand stores to find unusual bargains.
“We’re still only halfway there but we made the conscious decision to live without things for a little longer until we can buy something we love.”
I would much rather spend time at home than venture anywhere. – Andries
Table from Pierre Cronje; chairs from Block & Chisel; steel and glass cabinet from Madam Botany In the dining room, an exposed brick wall forms a rustic backdrop to the well-balanced mix of old and new furniture. Andries spent hours sanding and restoring the glass display cabinet – a secondhand buy – in the dining room (above). The couple loves the distressed look of their Cemcrete Cretecote floor. The pair of Mothmask Lithographs by Judith Mason was a gift from Andries’s mom, Marieta Brink.
