Summer is all about bringing a dollop of colour and energy into your home – if you’re not one for bright feature walls or extreme paint updates, homeware accessories are the perfect place to start. The Anna G corkscrew bottle opener by Alessi fits this brief perfectly with its vibrant shades, including blue, yellow, teal and purple, and its inherent personality. First introduced back in 1994 and still popular to this day, Anna G is a cheeky representation of ‘a real woman’. Her charming design, ladylike lines and beaming smile are sure to make her a favourite in your collection of kitchen gadgets. Available locally from Yuppiechef, it’s also made using durable materials like chrome-plated zinc alloy and polyamide, so you can trust that it’s going to last for many years. With the season of entertaining just around the corner, you’ll need a hand to open all those bottles of wine… They retail at R520 each from yuppiechef.co.za.
