Welcome to our new #IDEAS101 issue where we aim to make you dream. In this issue we give you eight pages of inspiration, a brand new pattern book filled with this season’s latest and most beautiful fabrics and wallpapers, as well as 14 pages dedicated to kitchen culture. We traveled through Europe in search of the most exquisite homes, and sure enough we found them. You can also expect to come across a few new additions – from gardening tips to DECO’s current reading list, expect to see a lot more from now on. And if the shopping and recipes aren’t enough, we’ve presented to you South Africa’s top revampers. Get the look with our latest issue, you can’t go wrong.
Think velvet couches, lighting and wallpaper. We show you this season’s most exciting decor buys.
We bring your a special report on kitchen culture. From the latest trends, design ideas, apps and expert opinions, DECO helps you tailor the design of your kitchen to make it work for you.
THE BEE’S KNEES
We teach you how to cook with an enchanted ingredient, a liquid gold made from the nectar of a thousand flowers and 10 000 perfectly choreographed little bees.
We introduce to you the new decor crew who can update your home; from a restorer to an eco-consultant, DECO investigates your options and rounds up South Africa’s top revampers.
A beautifully restored Milanese apartment, a red stone fortress in Morocco, a Swedish Villa and a colourful home that breaks all tradition of Danish style, we take you inside of some of Europe’s most beautiful homes.
We teach you how to grow some vegetables, buy art on a budget, take decor to the baby’s room and shop yourfood locally. You can look forward to these new additions in every issue coming.
