An interior design maven set up shop in the country and transformed an historic building into a showcase for his collections.
In the latest Winter Issue 96, we visited the historical home of Cobus can Niekerk, an interior designer who has masterfully transformed the old town post office into a majestic space that is all at once clubhouse, museum, office and playground.
I wanted it to look like the home of an Argentinean family who had suddenly come into money and wanted to splurge to impress the neighbours.
My home is my playground where I allow myself the freedom to play, too make mistakes and be creative.
Get the latest issue to find out all about this interesting man and his house. We also show you how to recreate Cobus’s ‘Argentinian’ home with checkerboard, gleaming copper and wooden pieces befitting a villa.
