GOR­GEOUS GREYS

Home (South Africa) - - RENOVATION -

The cou­ple turned a cold, dark pa­tio into a bright en­ter­tain­ment area com­plete with a fire­place, bar and pizza oven. To cre­ate an airy, light space, they re­moved the ex­ist­ing pa­tio roof and added ex­posed wooden beams and white Chro­madek roof sheet­ing. Pops of colour such as the yel­low-painted heir­loom cab­i­net make the space con­tem­po­rary and fun.

We love the open­ings be­hind the bar that the cou­ple de­cided to leave with­out win­dows or pa­tio blinds. Two shades of grey have been com­bined to great ef­fect on the pa­tio. Walls painted with Plas­con Bei­jing Moon (lighter shade) and Earth­cote Ja Boetie Johan (darker shade); black pen­dant and white ot­toman from Block & Chisel, bar stools from Cane World; the rug is an of­f­cut from the bed­room car­pet­ing

The home’s fa­cade is mod­ern and invit­ing thanks to the light grey with its warm brown un­der­tone. The orig­i­nal per­gola was painted white and pil­lars were added for con­trast. Ex­te­rior walls painted with Plas­con Bei­jing Moon; daybed from MRP Home; scat­ters cov­ered in out­door fab­ric from Her­tex
