Vic­to­rian fur­ni­ture is time­less. From the 1800s to date, it still man­ages to find its place in homes. Each piece was thought through, each notch in the wood, each curve, every nail right down to the tex­ture of the fabric.

The care taken to cre­ate th­ese mas­ter­pieces over the cen­turies has been key to it be­ing repli­cated over and over as a mea­sure of el­e­gance and class. With Kenyan neigh­bour­hoods find­ing in­ter­na­tional ac­claim for pric­ing and the ar­eas in which they are lo­cated, it is only proper for the in­te­ri­ors to match. This has been cru­cial in the rise in de­mand for high-qual­ity time­less fur­ni­ture in the home, that not only out­lives trends but can decade or cen­turies to come be con­sid­ered an an­tique. Ty­ing in with the in­te­ri­ors, we look at how to in­cor­po­rate the yel­lows and the golds into the home.

In this week’s edi­tion, we look at what it takes to get th­ese time­less pieces and where. De­cem­ber is here and the coastal va­ca­tion beck­ons. Re­lax­ing walks on the beach, meals in quaint eater­ies and even the salty sea air are all the mak­ings of a va­ca­tion.

Keep­ing up with the restau­rants, some of which you will not find on Google can be daunt­ing. But worry not, this week we run through some of the es­tab­lish­ments in Kenya’s coast that may be worth a visit for culi­nary de­lights.

While at it, we give you tips on keep­ing your make up flaw­less dur­ing the beach hol­i­day. En­joy the read.
