Volume 7 (Relax)

Go with the flow

Summertime and the living is easy – a notion interspersed throughout Vol. 7 : Relax. With bodies of water the golden thread that weaves our latest issue together, we draw on the calming, inspiring, intoxicating and invigorating characteristics of water to set the tone for the season ahead.

In the spirit of a carefree summer, each of our chapters start with a different ‘lolly to make you jolly’ in partnership with Las Paletas – their iced goods make the perfect anytime treat to cool you down. (If you subscribe now, you’ll receive a free box of lollies delivered to your door!)

Morocco’s Villa D boutique hotel is the inspiration for our Get The Look chapter this quarter – think: organic architecture perfectly juxtaposed with modern furnishings for a laidback-luxe appeal. We help you recreate the look at home with our round-up of shoppable local and international products.

We keep your festive season woes at bay with a curated selection of gifts for all the important people in your life – friends, kids, pets and more!

As always, the theme of art is a pertinent one. In ‘Waves of Change’ contributing art editor, Zanele Kumalo, reflects on her relationship with water and family, depicted through different works.

Summer and reading go hand in hand… which is why we have collaborated with Pezula Interior’s Steven Whiteman – our new contributing books editor – to showcase an amazing selection of holiday-inspired reads.

In ‘A big splash’ we take a closer look at Bertus Basson’s incredible new Chorus restaurant, which brings together both a chef and a winery known for excellence.

Our Live chapter zooms in on the most inspiring spaces to spend time with friends and family, surrounded by water and a peaceful ambience. Walker Bay’s Coot Club is an idyllic dream, serving up three environmentally immersive boathouses along the Klein Rivier.
