This month’s issue of Elle Decoration – known as The Art of Design – contains everything you need to welcome in the cooler months in style. With the changing of the season, we are all inspired to look at life with a fresh, new eye and this edition will help you do just that. Here’s why you can’t miss out on the May issue.

Kitchen Trends

As you’ve come to expect from Elle Deco, we only bring you the best in design inspiration. This month, we’re looking at the heart of the home – the kitchen. In this Toolbox, you’ll find the best advice from top designers and experts on how to make your kitchen functional and aesthetically pleasing.


Along with the biggest news in decor and design, we recap the exciting Elle Decoration International Design Awards. Held in Milan, the event celebrated the most progressive and design-forward thinkers in the business.

Wandile Mabaso

The Michelin-starred, Soweto-born chef talks to us about inspiration, his passion for food and shares some of his most sought-after recipes.

Johannesburg Home

Entrepreneur Metse Phiyega welcomes us into his modern home in Johannesburg. We won’t give too much away, but when the owner describes his style as ‘sophisticated clutter’, you know you’re in for some serious interior envy.

Victoria Yards

This month’s studio visit goes behind the imposing walls at Victoria Yards in Johannesburg. As a collaborative, shared space for local artists and artisans, Victoria Yards is part studio, part social development. Truly a marker of the generous Ubuntu spirit.

Have we got your attention yet? Aside from these stories, you’ll find shopping and style guides, tips on the hottest food and drink news and so much more. You don’t want to miss out on this issue, so make sure you get your hands on it now.
