Farm fresh

COMPILED BY Marian van Wyk PHOTOS Jan Ras

Embrace the urban farm life by inviting some rustic country charm into your home with quirky chicken prints, recycled wood benches and vintage-enamel coffee cups.

Farm icons are cooler than ever, thanks to South African designers that seamlessly incorporate windmills, crocheted doilies and bokkie antlers into beautiful designs. The raw texture of the handmade pieces will give your home a relaxed, down-to-earth feel. Try covering a table with chicken-and-tractor adorned linen and use vegetables rather than flowers for color. Don’t forget the “opsitkerse”!

We found all of the products featured here at Kamers Vol Geskenke, which ran in Bloemfontein recently. Diarise the Stellenbosch edition from 5 to 10 November and the Pretoria edition from 3 to 8 December now!
