HOUSE MENLOPARK 32
A CELEBRATION OF THE SIMPLE THINGS
We set out to turn a typical old suburban Pretoria house into an open plan contemporary home. The colour palette was predominantly monochrome with splashes of brighter tones such as yellows and green supported by neutral textures. The floors are from Earth coat, a type of paint that is made to enhance the natural texture of a surface whilst protecting it. We stripped away the ceilings and kept the exposed beams to create height and space.
The decorations and furnishings are a mix of old and new, found and bought to resemble the owner’s own quirky taste.
