STYLISH STUD­IES

I loved the ‘30 Tips for Liv­ing in Small Spa­ces’ ar­ti­cle in your Au­gust is­sue. As a stu­dent who can’t af­ford a big home, let alone an in­te­rior de­signer, this ar­ti­cle helped me trans­form my once bor­ing liv­ing room, which now feels 100 times big­ger. Some tips I fol­lowed in­cluded cre­at­ing a fea­ture wall by hang­ing a piece of printed fab­ric, get­ting a set of nest­ing ta­bles for mul­ti­ple uses, and us­ing my rug to cre­ate dif­fer­ent zones. Thank you

Gar­den and Home for mak­ing me love my new and im­proved abode!

FACE­BOOK

SU­PER SUP­PER Thank you Gar­den and Home for your bobotie recipe. I made it last night and it was amaz­ing! I loved the al­monds for the ex­tra crunch and the ba­nana was so yummy. I’ll def­i­nitely make this again!

SUCCULENT SUR­PRISE

I won­dered if you could tell me what this succulent on my bal­cony is? It made a beau­ti­ful photo when it flow­ered ear­lier this year. I love that it looks like some­thing from a coral reef.

Lau­ren Har­ri­son It looks like Or­bea var­ie­gata, com­monly known as car­rion flower or aas­blom. An indige­nous succulent, it grows in the coastal re­gions of the Western Cape.

The mark­ings of the star-shaped flow­ers vary, but typ­i­cally are ma­roon stripes, dots or dashes. A fun fact, it was one of the first car­rion flower species col­lected in south­ern Africa.
