Posted on Mon, 4 Jun 2018 by KiM

I really love several design styles but modern is not typically one of them. South African interior designer  is bound to convert people like me with this black and white penthouse that is sleek, glamorous and super sexy. His attention to detail and use of bold artwork has really drawn me in.

Posted on Sun, 3 Jun 2018 by KiM

I had to start at the back of this house where the kitchen is located because I am in loooove. My kitchen is about the size of this glorious marble-topped island, so to have all this space it fits a sofa and a dining table….*sigh*.
