IN PICS | See how this Durban terrace has reworked right into a coastal oasis


Located near the seaside in Umhlanga, the ocean types the entrance backyard of this penthouse owned by a beautiful couple of their seventies. Sadly although, the quite bland turquoise-and-white decor of their tiled terrace did not reside as much as the spectacular sea views it provided.

The pair referred to as within the crew of inside design agency Douglas & Douglas to provide the house an replace.

Founder Wendy Douglas tells us extra:

What was your imaginative and prescient for the brand new look of this terrace?

We wished to provide it a relaxed Mediterranean really feel with a touch of Durban’s tropical lushness.

What had been a few of the challenges you confronted revamping this house?

The weather performed a giant issue because the penthouse is on the coast with salt air blowing straight off the ocean and on to the terrace always.

We overcame this impediment by designing furnishings which might carry out nicely in an outside setting. All of the steel work is stainless-steel with a powder coating for additional safety towards the cruel parts, whereas all the material is Sunbrella outside efficiency material.
