ANNA CORREIA GIVES HOLIDAY HOME A FACELIFT

August 31, 2016

Interior consultant Anna Correia was given a brief to give this house in Plettenberg Bay a facelift by embracing the personalities of those who occupy it. Focusing on family, every step taken was to give the homeowners the perfect holiday home to escape to during national, school and religious holidays to spend time with the family away from their busy routines.

The homeowners purchased the property with a majority of the current furniture in, however the change came in the form of texture, colour and carpeting. Anna changed the overall paint colour of the home using accent walls that had grasscloth wallpaper applied and installed new wall to wall carpeting in the bedrooms.

By starting with the foundation that was already there, the current furniture was upholstered with fresh new fabrics and covers; then they brought in custom pieces and layered them with beautiful fun accents and loose lay rugs.

The overall look and feel of the home was inspired by the Plettenberg area: coastal living inspired, with a touch of the Garden Route – lots of blues; greens and whites were carried through. This home now has a perfect feel for relaxed holiday vibes with a classic and contemporary feel. Take a look:

SIMPLY STYLISH: LIVING ROOM MAKEOVER

By creating a striking feature wall and upcycling the existing furniture Neville Watt’s living room has been transformed into a stylish, inviting space

“My living room lacked warmth and character. Even though the furniture layout worked, the fabrics and finishes were dated and the space felt empty and bland. I knew it had the potential to be so much more,” says Neville Watt.

Neville enlisted the help of interior decorator Anna Correia. Her brief was two-fold. “Neville wanted to establish a warmer, welcoming feel using as much of his existing furniture as possible and he wanted the fireplace to function as a more distinct focal point against the end wall,” she says.

After deciding on a chic palette of greys, bronze and black, new fabrics were selected to update the furniture. Slipcovers in Belgian linen were made for the sofas and the seat inners were re-filled to make them more comfortable.

The slipcovers on the sofas are made up in Mavromac’s Belgium Linen River and the scatters cushions feature a combination of textured fabrics from Hertex, Home Fabrics and Tessa Sonik. A rug from Paco ties the scheme together.

“I also replaced the large back cushions on the sofas with a variety of scatter cushions for a softer, more contemporary look,” she says. Pattern was brought in by re-upholstering a pair of occasional chairs in a houndstooth check. The mahogany frames were resprayed in a high gloss grey. The existing coffee table was reinvented by removing its mirror panels, applying a soft ash grey stain and replacing the glass top with a panel upholstered in a textured vinyl.

The feature wall was tackled next. Anna designed a new classical fireplace surround. To enhance its proportions she framed it with wall to wall oak cabinets. “The wood was given an ash stain to complement the colour scheme and concealed downlighters were installed to enhance the effect of the wall unit in the evenings,” says Anna.

The wall unit incorporates a bar that makes serving drinks easy. It was made and installed by River Woods Manufacturing. The fireplace surround was custom built by Vasco Henriques.
