The décor on Sharon O’Callaghan and Henau Marais’ stoep is laid-back and although the sofa covers are white, they’re easy to clean as Sharon simply removes them and washes and bleaches them whenever they get a stain. The furniture consists of a selection of second-hand finds and hand-me-downs. The steps were built wide so they can double as seating.
