Storybook Boudoir

With August’s theme of luxury, the House and Leisure team is immersed in the spirit of opulence. The Shopping Inspiration section (by Senior Decor Stylist Leana Schoeman) features jewel tones and sumptuous table settings as a retro trend for the season. You’ll also notice a sprinkling of trinkets across the tables as an ode to glamorous Miami Beach living. Taking inspiration from this shoot, this week’s items are for the bedroom and demonstrate that vintage can be glam. With touches of pink, rose, citrus and amber, the ensemble takes us back to a bygone era…   Naomi Larkin Editor – House and Leisure     1. Marble Jewellery Box R195; Baraka 2.
