Over the years we have seen some of the most expansive and exceptional homes from South Africa conjured up and brought to life by the ingenious folks at Nico van der Meulen Architects. Set in a lovely landscape that is filled with natural goodness this gorgeous house in is another wonderful example of their inimitable style.
Reclaimed decor can be found everywhere with old sofas washing machines retro lamps from the ’60s and vintage chairs that have been reupholstered making their presence felt. Every corner of the house features a furnishing that looks like a lovely DIY idea!
