We visit two fantastic homes for some decor inspiration this week before our aspiring designers tackle their next décor challenge – the living room.

Simon Bray from Private Property takes Cindy to a beautiful penthouse in Horizon Bay that redefines luxury, with post-card sea views of Cape Town and a beach beneath as its front yard.

Even though the apartment boasts amazing views all round, Simon points out that its not just location but also good use of space and the living room that really sets of a property’s value.

Warren Kidney from Seeff Properties gives us a tour of the apartment with its fantastic floor-to-ceiling windows, wooden floors and beautiful decor finishes.

Next, we visit the Simbithi Golf and Eco Estate on KwaZulu Natal’s Dolphin Coast where we take peek inside a beautiful home where colour and creative touches give its living room its character.

With a great natural flow and a sense of warm and light, this home has a magnificent living space with high ceilings and an interesting coffee table to round it off!

With space generally at a premium for most properties, we tour the country to determine the best usage for a spare room.

Our tour kicks off in Umhlanga where Cindy visits Private Property’s headquarters for some property advice from industry expert and COO Simon Bray.
Next, the two set off to a 4-bedroom home on Kwazulu-Natal’s Dolphin Coast where an extra room was transformed into a cosy bar with lounge area. Next to a beautiful pool surrounded by a lovely wooden deck, the bar really is a great extension to their entertainment area!

From this contemporary home, Cindy and Simon jet to Cape Town to visit a beautiful R33million home with grand proportions that boasts a gentleman study of the highest standards. Complete with French oak floors, a cherry wood built-in wine cellar and massive bookshelves covering the walls – this room is definitely fit for a gentleman!

Renovated bathrooms are not only great selling features, they also make your home more comfortable for everyday living.
This week on Win A Home we visit two amazing homes in Johannesburg with Private Property for some bathroom decorating tips. The first home is a residence that successfully blends ultimate luxury with cutting-edge contemporary design. Inspired by the ambiance of 5-star spa hotels, the owner created a zen-like space with simple, clean lines and soothing, earthy tones. The bathroom boasts elegant and water-saving taps of a extraordinary standard.

Next, we venture to the outskirts of Sandton’s CBD. Here we come across a R15 million 5-bedroom house with a luxurious bathroom that comes with luxuries like a double sink, extra-large tub, steam shower, marble counter tops and a Hollywood-style dressing area with glass-fronted cupboards.
