Loft liv­ing

Home (South Africa) - - READER HOME -

The sec­ond floor con­sists of an en-suite bed­room and study. “It’s a mag­i­cal space; it’s open, airy and full of nat­u­ral light. We wake up among the trees ev­ery day,” says Lizelle.

The cou­ple bought the home with the wood-framed stack­ing doors that di­vide the space al­ready in place. “We only ever close them in win­ter. Or when we don’t want our dogs – the real own­ers of this house­hold – to jump on the bed,” Nico says. Open­ings at the top of the wall above the bed, be­tween the bed­room and en suite, im­prove air cir­cu­la­tion.

The nook below one of the arched win­dows makes for the per­fect study area (below left). Lizelle made the tres­tle ta­ble from a green door she found at Builders and the chair, in­clud­ing a ta­pes­try on the seat, was made from scratch by her grand­fa­ther.
