Photographs Greg Cox l Production Marian van Wyk

The floor in the large study consists of recycled Oregon pine from the old cinema in Graaff-Reinet. The sofa and antique wooden cupboard are heirlooms; the kelim on the couch was bought at the Grand Bazaar in Istanbul.

This corner of the living room is home to an antique desk and a coal bucket that belonged to Suzette’s grandmother. The couch is covered with linen previously used as living room curtains by Suzette’s mom.
