"Love, Love, Love . . . "



Greetings and Salutations,

Oh. My. God. I'm am SO loving the amazing home of South African designer John Jacob Zwiegelaar. Don't make the mistake of thinking that living in a simple colour story is easy. You need to be SO particular about scale and balance and proportion.


But, clearly it CAN be amazing in the right hands. This may be one of the most glamorous bathrooms I've sen on either side of the equator. The freestanding tub. The neo-classical artwork. Oh, and there's a fireplace too. damn.



Meanwhile, back in the guest bath . . . more absolute perfection.



And a equally glamorous living space. Bright. Beautiful. And yards and yards of white linen on the window coverings. You can't quite tell from this vantage point, but the room opens up onto a lovely garden on the left side.



Details from the living room. Love the use of mirrors to expand the space.




And the kitchen. I might actually be speechless. and that NEVER happens.



Love. Love. Love. (and might even love a little bit more.)

Cheers,
tartanscot

There's also a video tour of the space - here - click the link under the portfolio images.

I LOVE it too! Oy. VEH! Too gorgeous! The bathrooms are ridiculous! (That's in a good way.) And maybe this will convince my partner to let me paint the kitchen cabinets black!
