This book celebrates a South African décor come of age, with a huge diversity of remarkable homes and interiors found right around South Africa, from Sandton to the Karoo, Plettenberg Bay to Cape Agulhas and Kommetjie. They have been photographed by international photographer Fritz von der Schulenburg and are introduced by Conde Nast House & Garden editor Paul Duncan. Homes shown include beach house, city apartments and townhouses, cottages in the Klein Karoo, Cape Dutch homesteads and castle follies. Most of these pictures have never been seen before and they represent some of the finest and most distinctive interiors to be found anywhere in the world. Here are homes designed by top local architects and decorators including Silvio Rech, Stephan Antoni, Stephen Falcke, Graham Viney, Boyd Ferguson, Julia Twigg and Nthabi Taukobong. This is the South African lifestyle as you have never seen it. There's something here for everyone. Essential reading for decorators, architects, homeowners and anyone who cares about how we live here and now in a uniquely South African context.
