Front doors are like big statement pieces and lift up the look of any home. Looking at properties while we were in the US recently, I always looked at the magnificent detailing of the front doors – it was the first thing i noticed and told a story of what the rest of the house was like.
Growing up in South Africa, with exceptional interior architects, I got to see stunning homes with magnificent finishes. Earlier this year, we were in Cape Town and again on viewings I got to see big bold beautiful doors, leading you into designer homes. We even got to see an apartment where the owner got the rights to change out their door, it gave the apartment big selling appeal compared with other units in the building on sale.
Sharing some of my door-fascination with you, in this mondays lookbook …
Growing up, I had a mom and dad who enjoyed their weekend nursery trips, getting beautiful plants and flowers to fill our garden. I sadly, am pretty hopeless with gardening. Our new home will luckily be of a more manageable size, and easy to maintain.
I do sway for the more modern looking garden designs. The clean simplicity of the wood with the manicured greenery along with the natural stones – is just so elegantly beautiful.
Here is this weeks inspiration! I do think you can adapt these designs to fit different size gardens and even a rooftop garden.I definitely reccomend finding a good landscape architect in your area.
Here are this weeks top picks. If you are planning on going to viewings this week, be sure to check these out!

So who am I? I am Demi and real estate is something I am hugely passionate about. There is magic in it. Connecting two groups of people together and helping them out to get something they truly want.
