A Johannesburg home





 

I was thrilled to have recently been introduced to the South African design magazine, House and Leisure. I love this home belonging to a Johannesburg couple from the September 2010 issue. An assortment of curiosities they've scavenged from places they have lived contribute to a cohesive look that is all their own. I can't wait to see more homes and design from this part of the world!

Do you know how I can get a copy of the magazine? I love this interior and would like to see the whole article in print! Thanks for your help.

p.s. I forgot to mention I live in San Francisco. If that magazine is available in London I do have some friends there that could pick up a copy for me. Thanks for your help. I called my local newsagent and they said that magazine is probably not available in the United States.

Hi Katherine,
Unfortunately I've never seen the magazine in London, and doubt it's in the US. I have only read it through Zinio, the online digital magazine source. I imagine it's maybe not sold outside of South Africa? Maybe other readers would know.
Thank you for reading!

What an interesting home. There are great details in each shot. They've obviously spent a lot of time putting it all together.

One thing that I noticed about Johannesburg's house is that her windows are all in half-a-circle shape. The shape seems to open a bigger space for sunlight. Maybe I should suggest this to my sister since she is her house is having St. Louis window replacement.
