Home (South Africa) - - DÉCOR -

Af­ter stay­ing in a con­verted barn while on hol­i­day in Menorca, an is­land off the coast of Spain, Jill and Craig Mar­ion were in­spired to trans­form an old car­pen­ter’s work­shop-turned-pot­tery stu­dio into a small guest suite on their prop­erty along the Gar­den Route. Since they had to cre­ate sev­eral rooms out of one open space, each room turned out to be on the small side – but the cou­ple en­sured that they all packed a punch, both prac­ti­cally and aes­thet­i­cally.

Kitchen shelves made from old scaf­fold­ing planks make full use of the height in this space. Just be­low is a cof­fee sta­tion­cum-break­fast nook made from an­other scaf­fold­ing plank sup­ported by a pair of dis­carded stair­case rail­ings. In small spa­ces, multi-func­tional zones such as this come in handy!
