ROOS AND DE VIL­LIERS’ AD­VICE ON MAK­ING A HOUSE A HOME

Elle Decoration (South Africa) - - STRAND -

Find a de­sign aes­thetic that speaks to you ‘We love the “slow-liv­ing” aes­thetic of KINFOLK mag­a­zine and The KINFOLK Home books… it’s all about hav­ing a home that has integrity and au­then­tic­ity, that re­flects your ideals.’

Use tex­ture and de­tail to cre­ate in­ter­est and va­ri­ety ‘Tex­ture and de­tail are im­por­tant to us, from the rugs on the floor to the rough ce­ment bath­room walls, to the throws on the beds and the mar­ble coun­ter­tops in the kitchen.’

En­joy ev­ery space in your home ‘We use all the rooms, en­joy­ing dif­fer­ent parts of the house at dif­fer­ent times, de­pend­ing on whether it’s the week­end or a work­ing day.’

Don’t be afraid to cre­ate your dream home ‘We hate doors (and cup­boards), so when we ren­o­vated we got rid of all the doors, ex­cept the one to the guest loo. We wanted to cre­ate open spa­ces that flowed into one an­other.’
