The renovation of a Camps Bay home, that had been in a client’s family for three generations, required a dream team of women to bring an heirloom back to life. Existing doors were copied to exact detail and finished with ornate pewter hinges and handles from French ironmongery brand Brionne, and other details were either painstakingly sourced or made. The continuity throughout the house – pale grey walls, white ceilings, marble and dark timber – was intended to bring a classical calm atmosphere.
For the owner, a dream has been realised. Her grandmother had named the home Linda Vista, Portuguese for ‘beautiful view’, and the name has been subtly carved into the brickwork at the entrance.
