Chrissie’s kitchen and bedrooms

And we are back with a post about kitchen and bedrooms project. Mrs Chrissie du Barry is the lovely lady who trusted us with her beautiful home, redesigned by  Celeste Friedrich (remember Celeste from this project and this one?) Well, no need to say that the house looks completely different, more spacious and absolutely gorgeous. The house renovation was done by Property Pinpoint. (It is always pleasure to work with Gerrit Woudstra, whose precision and eye for the detail is remarkable.) (more…)

Kitchen for Rosalie

Kitchen woodwork for Rosalie in Johannesburg.

We apologize to all our clients and Internet followers who are waiting for more posts and photos of our kitchen woodwork. We are so busy that we don't even have time to take photos, not to mention that posting them takes more time from the time we don't have. Last year we did some kitchen woodwork in Rosalie's house. She was very specific about what, how and where she wants to have. She and her husband Sifiso bought a very beautiful house in Sandton, Johannesburg, which they had to renovate and give it a new life. I think that they did wonderful job. I'm sorry that I didn't take photos of the house and the renovated rooms. Rosalie and Sifiso changed completely the whole interior of the house. One day I was surprised to drive in the yard and see a minivan from a popular Johannesburg gallery, full of paintings and more lying around, blocking the driveway. Sifiso was choosing paintings for each and every room in the house. Our part in the renovation was the kitchen, the breakfast area (I didn't take photos of it), and the scullery. To make my point about Rosalie's vision and creativity, I'll post photos of the old kitchen and the new one. (more…)
