If you’re an avid Visi reader and love the designer homes & interiors that feature between their super glossy pages, then be sure not to miss their Great Spaces tours.
These Bespoke walk abouts allow a select group of creatives to explore beautiful destinations from commercial property to personal homes all meticulously decorated and best yet, one is allowed to photograph the on trend explored spaces donned with a complimentary glass of Graham Beck bubbly!
Readers gathered in the restaurant and craft brewery, joining VISI deputy editor Annemarie Meintjes and multi-award-winning interior architect and CEO of the LIFE Group of Companies, Maira Koutsoudakis, who spearheaded the design of the establishment. Maira wowed the crowd with historical stories about the space (The Potato Shed is 104-years-old) and took readers through her design process. She stressed that everything starts with an idea, but to be successful, you have to deliver.
Guests also got to walk around the beautiful market space that is WORK | SHOP | NEW | TOWN, a retail precinct that’s packed with over 100 proudly African brands.

Join us on tour of this sophisticated space in one of the Cape’s finest country estates. When homeowner Lurien Rawson moved from Johannesburg to Cape Town, and built a home in the prestigious Pearl Valley Estate near Paarl, she turned to the skills of interior designers Dawn Dickerson and Carmel Naudé of Hot Cocoa Interiors and Design to help her create a look that is in line with the earthiness of the rural Western Cape landscape. The result of this collaboration is a sophisticated contemporary space with a distinctly countryside aesthetic. At first glance Lurien’s home is an uncluttered, serene and hi-tech space, but take a closer look at the sentimental touches and its true DNA is revealed: this is a family home designed to be lived and worked in, a sanctuary, a place of freedom and, of course, a work in progress.
