While the new­ly­weds have the space to them­selves for now, they won’t be alone for long. “We knew that Glo­ria would gate­crash and move in with Ndu when the sto­ry­lines were be­ing writ­ten,” re­veals Pi­eter. “So we had to de­sign a space that would ac­com­mo­date Glo­ria’s fur­ni­ture and fit in the rus­tic theme of the house.” The lounge, din­ing area and kitchen are slightly mis­matched with an over­sized couch, a small fridge and tiny ta­ble.

Look closely just to the right and you’ll see where the wall ends – those are the lights and cam­eras in the dark.

The home is set in the ru­ral area of Soweto, Joburg so the ex­te­rior had to re­sem­ble the set­ting as much as pos­si­ble. “The ex­te­rior walls were man­u­fac­tured by a com­pany but the in­te­rior ma­te­ri­als were sourced by the art depart­ment. We didn’t want it to look too for­mal, so we bought goods at bud­get fur­ni­ture stores and kept the place as min­i­mal as pos­si­ble,” says Pi­eter, who adds that the brick walls and grassy back­drops were painted by the set de­sign team in just seven days.
