SOUTH AFRICAN COZY INDOOR-OUTDOOR HOUSE

When South African residents Joy & Lucien set out to remodel their recently-purchased Durban home, they wanted to create the perfect space for modern living with two kids.  


To create an airy indoor-outdoor feel, Joy and Lucien replaced all the original windows and doors with big custom picture windows and doors.   


Using a mixture of furniture and styles from different eras, they were able to stay within the same tonal range to create a smooth transition throughout the house. 


Joy and Lucien's living room consists of chrome, soft linen sofa's and colonial style details. 


They painted the dining room a contrasting dark grey to differentiate the space from the all-white living room, and added mismatched cane and raffia-covered chairs to sit at the clean-lined table. 



Such a sleek kitchen!!  


A seamless transition outside - they extended the deck the entire length of the house.


I love the steps separating the deck from the grass - so genius!


The magnificent flat-crown tree creates the perfect stage for this beautiful lush garden and landscaping.






What I love most about this house . . . it has given us room to be ourselves, and use the space as individuals, yet share it as a family.  - Joy (homeowner)

I'm obsessed!!  The soft colors, the natural feel, the comfort - it all makes me feel so zen!

I bet this house looks fantastic at night!!

Love, 
Maryam

She knows what works for her and looks so comfortable in everything she wears!!  I take comfort very seriously . . . especially on important nights - one less thing to worry about!!

Rob Pattinson is looking good too!
