Top Billing features a Perla Lichi interior design creation

We take a tour inside this magnificent Johannesburg family home, designed by the award winning Perla Lichi

This house caters for everyone in the family from an in-house spa for mom, an exotic car garage for dad, something unique to each of their five sons and a kitchen that’s out of this world.

This grand Joburg residence was the vision of its IT executive and his wife; one which called for the skills of Perla Lichi, an American master interior designer and just the woman to bring this opera of a home to reality. Perla has published five books on her work with a sixth coming out later this year and her instinct for how space, design and material come together is well illustrated in the house.

Perla location 

There are many hallways which posed a design problem, solved by converting each of them in to its own “art gallery.” The warm, inviting living room features a custom rug that holds the varied elements together. A built-in gas fireplace with marble finishing all around fits smoothly into the ornate décor. 

The beautiful gourmet kitchen continues the feel of the home through rich, hand-carved mahogany woodwork and a wood beam soffit over the island is this chef’s dream. Griller, steamer, cappuccino maker – everything’s built into the cabinetry. Eighteen people can eat breakfast at once in the kitchen!

The luxurious main bedroom achieves a soft, warm, comforting glow. The his and hers vanities are in custom made wood cabinetry with decorative embellishments. A ceiling soffit with custom lighting and a central chandelier was created to repeat the shape of the Jacuzzi tub area. In the wardrobe, handbags each have a colour-coded home and just putting an outfit together in here has the thrill of a shopping spree down New York’s 5th Avenue.

Summer or winter, if you feel the need for a splash then the oasis of a pool is always at just the right temperature for a dip. It’s a home where everyone can be in their own world!
