In our #SummerIssue, we take you inside Sanet Coetzee’s cosmopolitan apartment, based in the inner city suburb of Oranjezicht. Layered with French accents, minimalist aesthetics and a pared-down palette, this apartment could just as easily be in Paris, Tokyo or Helsinki.

Get the look by opening your home up to scrumptious fabricsempty white floors and glossy textures.

With an abundance of indoor greeneryclean lines and modernist shapes, Sanet has paid close attention to opening the space up while retaining a sense of separate areas with their own distinct character and function.

The overall feel of her home is more than ordinary, something she pays credit to her creative consultant and stylist, Shelley Street.
