and represent your style and passions.
So how do you ensure that your home
tells your story? Here are my top tips:

HOMES & STYLES MAGAZINE| 7

H&S INTERIORS

Add Colour
Add some of your favourite colours to your
rooms.Don’t be scared to experiment - if you
paint something and you don’t like the colour,
you can always paint over it.Or start small, with
some colourful accessories. However, be sure to
keep everything within the same colour tonal
family, otherwise the colours will jar, and the
space won’t feel restful. And think carefully about
what colours you put in what room, depending
on how you want the room to feel.

Mix it up with Pattern
Pattern is a great way to add colours to a scheme,
as it can be much more subtle than plain blocks
of colour. Try to mix in small scale, medium scale
and large scale prints for the best effect. If having
a patterned sofa is too much for you, then have a
plain sofa with patterned cushions, and a smaller
patterned chair.

Layer in Texture
Layering in textures is an easy way to add a feel
of luxury to your home. Think a soft rug on a hard
floor, glossy metallic accessories mixed with
matt, a velvet sofa with silky cushions. Adding in
different textures to a space creates visual and
tactile diversity.

Create Interest at Different Levels
Think about how your eye will travel around your
space.You want it to move up and down as it
moves around your room – from that beautiful
rug on the floor, to the collection of cushions on
your sofa, to the art above, to the statement
decorative pendant, back down to that cute little
chair in the corner, and so on.

7. Add your own Personal Touches
This is the final piece to the puzzle. Add in your
art and family photographs, display your
collections, and showcase your books and
ornaments. Group pieces in odd numbers and
mix up materials and heights.Display things
symmetrically for a balanced feel, or play with
scale and position to add an element of play and
surprise.

Most importantly, remember that you are
creating a home for you and your family to live in,
not just a neutral space to resell at some point in
the future. Keep your choices personal to you,
and use the language of design to tell your story!

A welcoming portico over a herringbone timber
door announces the entrance and leads guests
directly into the heart of the home. Above the
kitchen counter, a large bi folding window
dominates the entire wall, allowing potential for the
exterior landscaping to be developed into a feature
‘view-stop’.

The existing U-shaped plan of the second house,
affords all rooms a pool view. The new glazed gable
helps flood the lounge, dining and kitchen with
natural light whilst providing a beautiful feature to
look at from both inside and outside of this
charmingly compact family home.

The design of both homes is dominated by a feeling
of lightness and transparency, this look is achieved
by crisp, white painted, exposed timber trusses and
TNG ceilings. Shifts from cosier flat plasterboard
ceilings in the private rooms to higher pitched TNG
ceilings in the common spaces varies the spatial
experience of the building.

Large Aluminium framed bi-folding doors enclose
the living spaces, main bedroom, and guest en-suite
and can be opened fully to integrate indoor and
outdoor spaces. The use of mobile furnishings to
divide the rooms creates free flowing spaces that
allow for multiple furniture configurations between
the lounge and dining. The neutral colour palette of
the house guarantees the versatility of the interior
to any chosen style and also plays a critical role in
providing visual relief, backdrops for artwork, and a
calming atmosphere. This particular colour palette
also allows other design elements to become the
focus, such as the furniture pieces, artwork, layout
configuration and so on whilst having the ability to
highlight and compliment any textured surfaces
within the building, as textures are essential in
creating a warm, welcoming, and comfortable
interior design.

H&S TRENDS

Internal spaces spill out physically and visually to adjacent outdoor spaces with views to other components
of
the building helping to extend internal volumes and encouraging the design to breathe freely. The success of
these spaces is achieved through a gentle transition at floor levels, promoting a safe and continuous passage
to the outdoor verandas. As a gesture toward connecting the house to the garden and vice-versa both
houses
have a large sheltered veranda that encases entire elevations of each house.
The hardest part of this project was working within existing foundations in order to achieve the
“costefficiency” aspect of the client brief.

ILALA LODGE HOTEL

We were excited to spend our first night at Ilala Lodge Hotel. I had last stayed at Ilala way back in 2002 when I visited Victoria
Falls for the first time with my family. The infrastructure of the hotel has improved greatly since then, there has been a major
expansion, a new wing has been built which offers more facilities. The ambience is gorgeous with natural trees surrounding the
hotel and it gets even more exciting in the evening when the lights are lit.

Ilala is strategically located, it is close to the entrance to the falls, historical sites, magnificent Lookout Café, city centre,
supermarkets, shops, among so many other amenities which are within a walking distance. The bedrooms are very modern and
spacious with comfortable beds.The bathrooms are very trendy and contemporary, with exquisite walk-in shower, vanities,
concealed cistern and other designer elements. Other room facilities include air conditioning, overhead fan, satellite TV,
hairdryer, safe, free Wi-Fi, bar fridge, room service and Nespresso machine and tea facilities. We were offered with a variety of
complimentary beverages which was a plus.The patio facing natural trees was awesome and good for anyone who wants to do
some meditation and needs that instant rejuvenation from mother nature. We enjoyed very delicious dinner and breakfast. The
breakfast had a wide range of choices and options. The chefs at Ilala Lodge are well seasoned, after the good taste of food
experience we requested to meet the executive chef, Ricky who shared his culinary journey and passion with us.

The staff was exceptional, everyone from the management, desk staff to housekeeping. We were well assisted in the planning of
our various activities by passionate and experienced staff. Thumbs up to the hotel manager Martin whose service was
impeccable and he also took us for a tour of their new project, Palm River and ensured that our stay was a memorable one. Ilala
is definitely a must stay if you are looking for a quality time and great experience.

LOOKOUT CAFE

OUR lunch at the Lookout Café was a
memorable one., this cosy restaurant has left
the best impressions!

We enjoyed the refreshing experience of tasty
fresh food, open fresh air, spectacular views of
the Batoka Gorge and Zambezi river below,
spray of the falls, view of the bridge, watching
gorge swing, zip line and so much more . We
spent a good 3 hours eating, drinking, taking
photos, site seeing and simply just enjoying
ourselves to the bits.

The aesthetics of the space is very eye catchy
and lends itself to a magical experience.
The food is excellent, generous portions and
great prices. The service was fast and
delightful. Staff are extremely knowledgeable
and make great recommendations.

The menu at the lookout café is extensive, the
meals are simply very tasty and quite filling
with fresh and tasty ingredients. There were
also light meals on offer, cocktails, milkshakes,
juices and a range of other beverages.
It is an ideal and a must visit spot for your
lunch any day whilst touring Vic Falls,
especially if u want to chill and wind down
after enjoying the falls. We also enjoyed their
cocktails and milkshakes which were made to
perfection. Their food presentation was spot
on.

You cannot afford to visit Victoria Falls without
visiting and having a good lunch at the
Lookout. We would like to come back here
again and again. Do yourself and visit this
lovely Café every time you visit Victoria Falls, it
is a second to none.

very serene environment. The rooms are very comfortable, spacious
and clean. We

were informed that the lodge was previously a ‘hunters lodge’ and
hunters from all over the world would come and are still coming
and get to be hosted here. All the rooms are thatched/ ecologically
friendly roof hence ensuring that the buildings are are cool. There is
very reliable Wi-Fi , the service was available throughout thelodge.

Nguni Lodge is strategically located, close to the city centre, close to
the big tree and Victoria Falls Park and so many other local
amenities which are just about 3kms away.We were also served with
a healthy and delicious continental breakfast which included, fruits,
yoghurt, pastries, assorted cereals, hot and cold beverages, eggs,
sausages, beans, bacon.

The Lodge was a real home away from home. We wished we could
have spent more time to enjoy the outdoor beautiful swimming
pool, but time was not allowing. We are very happy and confident
to recommend Nguni Lodge to any touristvisiting Victoria Falls
especially those who are in search for favourable charges, serene
environment, ‘home away from home’ kind of feel.
