Time to cast your vote
Be inspired anew by the outstanding homes we selected as House of the Month last year. It's time to go through the 11 homes that made it into House and Leisure and vote for the home that you think should be named the House of the Year 2015 sponsored by Saint Gobain! 'It’s always a joy to put together the annual House and Leisure House of the Year supplement because it offers the chance to look back and marvel at a line-up of homes that really are extraordinary. And this one, House and Leisure House of the Year 2015, is no different,' writes editor Naomi Larkin. 'The 11 houses showcased are from the previous year’s House of the Month selections, so they are truly the "cream of the crop". Each one best demonstrates the theme of the month in which it was published. From Small Spaces to Art, Renovations, Luxury and Trends, every home featured is testimony to the unique creativity of its owners, while also ‘living’ the magazine’s theme,' she explains. 'From a trendsetting estate home in Irene that "redefines the mould of barn-style architecture" to a KZN family abode with a layout that celebrates the tropical climate, making it as much about the outside as the inside, the concept of South African style is broad. Then there's the Sir Herbert Baker cottage in Johannesburg whose renovation included a glass box that takes the heritage home to a whole new level, or the 78m2 Cape Town apartment that epitomises smart, clever design. Whatever your own style is, I know there will be at least one home in this mix that inspires and invigorates you.' Your vote will not only influence which home is selected, but it also means you stand a chance of winning. The lucky voter will walk away with a state-of-the-art Smeg freestanding cooker, wall extractor and griddle to the value of R30 000. Click here for the prize details.
