THE GOLDEN RULES OF DECORATING
Whether you’re decorating a bedroom or a veranda, there are certain rules that ensure success. We asked some leading designers to share theirs
THE WOW FACTOR
Every house needs a wow factor, a feature that draws the eye and becomes a focal point, is the view of Nicky Goldstone of Designs by Day. “It takes some courage, but to establish a house that is uniquely yours, you should include some statement pieces. For this dining room in Durban, we could have gone for a plain and simple painted wall but instead we designed this timber-panelled wall with shelf space for statement pieces and concealed cupboards for storage.
It’s like a modern sculpture and together with the cluster of pendant lights it lifts the room out of the ordinary.”
