Mix an exclusive Cape Town property, an open brief and a trusting client with an eye for designer pieces, and the end result is a dream project. The brief from the client was simple: Surprise me.

Comprising of 4 stories, 5 bedrooms, 3.9m high ceilings and panoramic views from the Twelve Apostles to Clifton’s beaches - This was the blank canvas that OLALA INTERIORS got to work with. The home’s magnificent proportions allowed for expressive decorating with volumes of epic wall space for beautiful imported wallpaper and local art.

In addition to being a family home, the house is also used as a corporate and entertainment venue for local and international business clients, hence the importance and expense placed on reception and entertainment areas as well as the fairly masculine guest suites. The budget was prioritised in terms of investment; handmade hand knotted rugs; & supporting upcoming South African artists. All art was intuitively purchased with the client delivering the final thumbs up.

From every angle, this is a home that celebrates craftsmanship, design, art and its exquisite location.
