“Marrying the old with the new” – this was our motto for the House De Wet project, an old character filled home that was in need of updating especially the bathroom.
If you would like me to walk you through the space head on over to Instagram, I have saved the full project on our highlights reel.
The Brief: The client already had a long term renovation plan for their home, they had met with an architect prior to our meeting and therefore the layout of the bathroom was predetermined. They required our expertise to hand select finishes, fittings and accessories for the bathroom and to kickstart the execution of their long term plan, starting with the bathroom.
Our interiors are inspired by an enquiring contemporary aesthetic and timeless classicism, with a respect for materials, combined with natural textures and traditional craftsmanship – this space is a textbook example of this.

The bathroom was our main focus although like with most projects we experienced ‘scope creep’ and ended up doing a few other projects around the house… How amazing does the kitchen look with a few minor changes? A quick change in layout created a larger working area and easy flow through the archway leading to the living and dining room, a tiled backsplash, new kitchen counter tops and an expose shelf to add the finish touches, marrying the old with the new.
