The Spring Issue is here and what a feeling it is to actively press refresh. Revitalise yourself, and get your home and lifestyle in to tip top shape in preparation for the glory of summer. Don’t worry we’ll show you how…

Exploring the newest and best in in glass and transparent materials, DECO shows you how to make decor changes that will change your life for the better. We also play with flowers, plants and materials in the Botanical Beauty feature on page 71. On a sadder note, we also bid farewell to our esteemed Editor, Bielle Bellingham, who leaves us with this:

‘The future is fresh, and it is waiting for us to grab it with both hands.’

SAFAR SO GOOD

Conceived in New York, designed in Toronto and brought to life in Cape Town, Coco Safar was a decade in the making and now offers a daily escape from the ordinary. Go behind-the-scenes with us as they present their first-of-its-kind couture patisserie and unique flavour pairings, it’s rather revolutionary.
