Since we’ve started on our house-hunting mission I’ve been looking at houses like a hungry-blood-hound… wanting to sniff out the best suppliers in all the land for tiles, light fittings, chairs, everything. Enter Cath Crawford’s beautifully renovated home, she’s done a superb job in creating a light and airy retro-inspired space by doing a few clever face-lifts together with the help of Christo Interiors.
The hat-rack is a clever DIY job that Cath made from vintage rulers – you could find similar ones at the Milnerton Market.
The kitchen is the heart of this home, and leads out onto a gorgeous courtyard. I especially love the retro 70’s feel created with green and white linoleum tiles from Flor-store in Sea Point. The table is from Saks Corner and the chairs from Guideline Manufacturing
The black pendant lights are from Light World.
The metro tiles are from Douglas Jones.
Cath fell in love with the peppery taste and sunshine yellow packaging of the Prince Albert olive oil, and now get its posted over from the Badenhorst farm in sets of 10.
The lush Ivy-clad courtyard that leads out from the kitchen feels like you’ve stepped out of the city and into the centre of a sleepy village.
The outdoor table is a teak Lisbett from Stokperd.
The front stoep with great views of the city.
