Our winter issue has finally arrived – and it’s packed with juicy content for you to read and enjoy this season.

We’ve got 8 inviting spaces to share with you in this issue, from a sophisticated modular design in Pretoria and a modern farmhouse in Stellenbosch to a rustic hotel in the Little Karoo and a trendy Victorian in Cape Town.

Be entertained on page 27, as Vanessa Raphaely describes her love-hate relationship with her seaside “Bitch House”. You’ll also find a mix of winter warmer options on page 106, including an adorable Golden Doodle you won’t be able to resist.

Deputy editor Annemarie Meintjes shares her 10 favourite designs spotted on her rounds at this year’s Milan furniture fair, Salone del Mobile, on page 120, followed by the rest of our 31 Reasons To Get Fired Up About Design This Winter. Highlights include Le Creuset’s Marseille journey, traditional and contemporary rugs, Lize Grobler’s Nando’s creation, Tatiana Etienne’s SPINE collection and artist Thania Petersen’s striking photographs. Plus, there’s a nifty infographic on page 180 to help you decide which fireplace is best for you.

Speaking of fireplaces, we’ve got one up for grabs! Enter our competition and you could win a Nano 1100 bio-ethanol fireplace from Beauty Fires, worth R35 000.
