South African Beauty

The use of natural materials and the amazing indoor/outdoor flow are just two of the things that drew me to this beautiful South African home. Owners Matt and Victoria Bresler hired Meyer+Vorster Architects to create an easy-going contemporary home for themselves and their three young children.

Located next to a vineyard, the outlook is stunning and they've capitalised on that by having lots of floor to ceiling glass and big sliding doors that open the home up to the outdoors.

The interior style is simple but beautiful with lovely attention to detail. I love the master bedroom's Kandy wallpaper from Elitis, it's nice to have one hero piece in the bedroom, and because everything else is kept simple it allows the wallpaper to shine. Also, aren't the little bedside table and sitting-down lamp adorable?!

The textures of the wood, concrete and glass are beautiful and really practical for the young family.

This staircase by Stable Marketing might be my most favourite part of the house. I love that the larger steps on the right allow a place to display pieces, and the oak balustrade or divider to the left is gorgeous. Yes, I could happily live here!

Thank you to House and Leisure for allowing me to feature this beautiful home.


  1. wow I love it. Were you lucky enough to visit their home or do you interview them via skype?

    1. I wish I was lucky enough to visit. I feature homes that I think are really special. Most of them I find online and then research them to put the post together.


It's lovely to hear from you. Thanks for your comment. Best wishes, Vic xxx
