Outside in – Adrian Hallam House Tour

I was thrilled to see the newest issue of South African Elle Decoration. The title of this issue was ‘Feel Good’, and that it did. One of my very favourite parts was architect Adrian Hallam’s Durban home. The home is positioned on a lush slope and is drenched in gorgeous views.


There is hardly any need for furniture or art – the amazing views are so spectacular than all you really need to do is try not to interfere with them.


The simple lines of a Basculant Corbusier chair with the gorgeous backdrop of a jacaranda tree. This tree, when in season, will be covered in lilac coloured blossoms – amazing! To avoid the space looking too stark – the beautiful kilim rug on the floor adds warmth and a softer texture.



Adrian’s wife , Janet Solomon, has an art studio at their home – no doubt she must get so much inspiration from the beautiful view surrounding her. Apparently the jacaranda branches outside are also a playground to several vervet monkeys – how fun!


I almost can’t tell if the kitchen is completely open air – how lovely to be surrounded by nature, and to live in a climate warm enough to do it!


I love this bold, graphic black and white wallpaper – it almost echoes the fans of  the palms outside.
