Take a tour around a London home with South African influences

10 images

A rambling family homestead in the Cape Province of South Africa provided inspiration for the owner of this terraced house in London, when he set about turning it into his own home away from home. An air of history pervades the property, with plenty of Dutch colonial influences, as seen in the swooping shapes that embellish the mirrors in the formal sitting room.
