French Provence in the heart of Pretoria
French Provence in the heart of Pretoria To kick things off this week on Top Billing, we take a look inside one of Pretoria's most beautiful homes, and find out what it took to revamp one couple's dream house from the ground up.
From the outset, Teresa and her husband Louis Fourie decided they would use their architect’s framework as the basis of a style that’s all their own. With a love of French and Italian culture and design, a romantic French Provence feel resonates through the house. The entrance hall has strong influences of Venetian sixteenth century architect Palladio, and the patio has a Venetian street cafe feel to it – all very global and romantic.
Taking a further look inside, we find out that this is not ordinary residence. It is the type of house that demands your attention, with antique and unique pieces from all across the globe that add a personal touch to their home. It is, after all, those personal items that make a luxurious house a home.
Don't miss this Venetian glam home on Top Billing this Thursday at 7:30pm on SABC3.
