Bling it on

Our August Luxury issue is on sale now and it really is a collector’s magazine. Look out for the beautiful cornflower blue foil masthead with the spectacular Westcliff house on the cover. Built on a rocky highveld koppie, it’s an architectural masterpiece and provides a glimpse of the wonderful houses inside. Even though we bring you plenty of luxury inspiration in the form of velvet, leather, and other equally covetable objects, nothing says ‘glam’ quite like traditional black and gold and spellbinding metallics. This week’s eclectic mix of items channel this theme and are not so much about function, but rather, the whole ‘bling bling’ effect.   Naomi Larkin Editor – House and Leisure   1.
