Nicola Hadfield's beautiful homes of South Africa features a diverse selection of stylish, characterful homes, all with their own sense of identity and bearing testimony to a truly South African lifestyle. This South African-inspired decor title includes only private homes belonging to South Africans. By limiting the number of homes shown, Nicola has been able to present the genuine feel of the home and the owners' individual creativity and preferred lifestyle choice. South African style comes from the heart, from personal experiences; it sometimes necessitates hand-crafting rather than sophisticated design machinery. As a result, the book is also a showcase for South African artists, sculptors and craftspeople. The idea behind the book is to inspire and to create a positive awareness of South African design.
