Four years ago Kowie Pretorius left the corporate world to be at home with her children. The family found their dream home, and Kowie poured all her creative energy into revamping the house for her young family.
Gretha Bester, co-owner of Makietie Linen, opens her lovely family home to us today. We met Gretha and Janine from Makietie at Kamers vol Geskenke last year, and fell in love with their gorgeous linen range. Some of you may have seen that we used Makietie linen for some of our food shoots. The fabric is not just beautiful, but also super photogenic, and made our job really easy.
For our home tour we head off to the beautiful old house of the Le Cordeur family from Paarl. Heike Le Cordeur is a wonderfully creative florist and the home she shares with her husband Andrew, and their two children Luca and Indya, is just as lovely as the arrangements she dreams up.
Stylish fashion brand Desray needs no introduction. In fact Desray dresses make a regular appearance in South Africa’s leading glossy magazines. You will also find Desiree Jearey’s beautiful garments in more than 60 boutiques all over South Africa, or in one of their four exclusive shops in the Western Cape. But today we will not be gushing over her classic dresses, trendy scarfs or flattering tops.
I have been bugging Tasha to photograph her home and let us feature it ever since we started working together on our food shoots in the beginning of the year. That was even before I had seen her house. You see, Tasha shows up every month for our shoots with the most beautiful props, all her own collectables!
