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.”
