My personal philosophy when it comes to any form of design, is that good never goes bad. I have previously been given Architectural Digest’s dating back to the 80’s, and while technology has changed from box TV’s and VHS to Plasma and DVD, I would still be able to repurpose every piece of furniture in that space to bring it current.
So today I went to go look at an apartment in one of my favourite buildings in Johannesburg – Whitehall Court. This block situated in Killarney epitomises old Johannesburg to me, and am filled with ideas every time I go have a look ( This would have been the 5th apartment I have seen in that block in the last 5 years). As you will note I have never bought there, as I am just slightly short on the asking price of R6mil. (That statement written in my sarcasm font obviously)
The unit today actually consisted of two adjacent units, a 2 bed and a 1 bed.
But I could totally justify that price if you look at the building below
Personally I was not a big fan of the furniture and decor selected for the apartment as shown below
But if it was my apartment, I would be going Modern Contemporary, with a monochromatic look.
Positive thinking and I will own a place like this one day! But if you turn out to be the new owner of this stunning apartment, give me a call – I have ideas.
