Special issue: Pure Chemistry

As a big fan of mid-century Scandi style myself, I've been drooling over pages 108 - 115 of the Celebrate issue, where we've featured the Cape Town home of pharmacist Pieter Dreyer.

Pieter spent seven years in New York, which is where his finely-tuned magpie's eye won him some real vintage classics.

Although certainly a disciple of the clean and pared down mid-century style, Pieter's playful little collections of treasures around the apartment show that he doesn't take it all too desperately seriously, and that his place is no Mid-Century style shrine, but is rather, truly a home.
