DECO Winter issue header

Brace yourselves, our new Winter Issue is here. Packed with new pages and all of your favourite features, we hope it keeps you plenty busy during the cold season. Available wherever magazines are sold across South Africa and online as a digital download.

Last issue we brought you the Pattern Book; this time round we present your winter palette – think faux fur, chocolatey leather and even more velvet (yes, we are still obsessed). For this issue we searched our Mother City for perfectly curated homes and sure enough we found them.

And if that isn’t enough indulgence for you – chase the Northern Lights with us, find inspiration in art and step in to the studios of some of South Africa’s top craftsmen to discover their interior style and what makes them tick.

Freshly baked bread is perhaps the most profoundly satisfying of all foods. Paired with creamy home-made butter, it is the ultimate comfort. This winter, we invite you to make your own – re-inventing this staple snack in a myriad of ways, complete with mouth-watering photography that drizzles off the page.

For our art-inspired Winter issue, DECO has been granted exclusive access to the studios of some of South Africa’s leading artisans, artists and designers across the country. We step behind closed doors and poke around their private spaces, ask what makes them tick, how their homes and studio spaces inspire their creativity and discover how they make their magic.

From a Cape Town loft, fuelled by artistic discovery, to an American cabin in the woods, the homes we explore this issue might just be our favourite yet, packed with inspiring décor ideas for you to freshen up your own home this season. We also scout an Italian treasure, a French seaside haven and Beezy Bailey‘s flamboyant Cape home.
