Block party

Home (South Africa) - - FRESH IDEAS -

When we fea­tured Bry­ony Web­ster and Johnny Scholtz’s Melville home in our June 2018 is­sue, their kitchen cup­boards were off-white. Soon af­ter, Bry­ony jumped in and started a quick kitchen ren­o­va­tion with a pas­tel pal­ette – and just look at the dreamy re­sults! In three days, they trans­formed their kitchen with a few (care­fully ap­plied) licks of paint.

Bry­ony was in­spired by an im­age of a 1960s colour-blocked kitchen she spotted on­line. “Peo­ple ei­ther love the cup­boards or they think it’s too much. Mostly, they seem to like them,” she says. “I’m a max­i­mal­ist and a ‘thrifter’, so I’m al­ways pick­ing up bits and pieces from sec­ond-hand shops which I use to add to the lay­ers in my home.” Bry­ony cre­ated a dig­i­tal mock-up of the space to plan which colours would go where be­fore they started paint­ing – and the re­sults speak for them­selves.
