This bright two-room home is located in Clifton Beach, a beautiful area of Cape Town in South Africa. The small apartment is set over two floors and hangs over Clifton’s 1st beach. The sound of the sea is loud and constant, the light ethereal and the location, prime, but it needed a lot of work. Essentially, the team of Michele Throssell Interiors had to set about redoing what was a previous shoddy renovation, in order to achieve the vision of the client- to open the space up, bring-in the light and maximize on the view. The homes and apartment blocks in this hillside neighbourhood present an interesting set of challenges because of the uneven and steeply sloped terrain. Michele Throssell Interiors: “The fun really began with the sourcing of furnishings and finishes which were all variants of white, off-white, cream and beige. But white spaces need definition and without compromising the request of the client to maximize the light and not detract from the views, the team started the layering process of rich textures. From the rattan furniture, white washed wooden floors, plush white rugs and crochet throws, amongst others, the inspiration of sea ‘treasures’ washing up on the shore below was a big influence to the team.”
