Longacres, Langebaan

Although the contemporary look is popular, people love the comfort of the traditional farmhouse style.  Every detail of this small holding property was carefully considered: the white painted ceilings and open trusses offset the subtle rustic light fittings beautifully; the use of green undertones in the paint colours of the walls and cabinetry convey the feeling of relaxation and compliment the brick walls which were used minimally in strategic areas for maximum impact. Floors were adorned with luxurious chiseled french patterned travertine in all the living areas and vinyl in bedrooms and bathrooms. 

As families are spending more time in the kitchen, it has become the most important space in the house. With three daughters and a mom and dad who love to experiment in the kitchen, this thoughtfully designed kitchen had to cater to various needs. An over sized island anchors the space and serves as a hub for family activities, providing a place for both family & friends to congregate. Dress a bathroom as you would any other living room with the appropriate furniture, accessories and art. Don’t be afraid to make the space special by including items that are beautiful to you. In the main en suite, a rug was added as well as ornately framed mirrors and a pre-loved re-upholstered chair. Inspired by the homeowner’s love of roses, lights were sourced to add a personal touch.
