Artist Olivia Botha of Swellendam and her husband Karel aren’t afraid of change, or colour. These two creative DIYers regularly swap rooms and move furniture around to keep their décor fresh.
Their sons, Le Mar (4) and Tre Monne (2), are best of friends. When Olivia moved the boys’ beds with their unique headboards (Karel’s handiwork) to the kids’ TV room and positioned them in such a way that the pair could scamper back and forth between them, it was a done deal: this is now their favourite space.
