Relaxed living in the Berg Valley

Wanting to get away from it all, a young couple was looking to create a 'barefoot retreat' that was casual and relaxed but still offered luxury living.


Antoni Associates used natural organic materials to create a home in the Berg River Valley 30 minutes away from Cape Town in distance, but miles away in sheer beauty.

Situated in the tranquil Berg River Valley and wrapped by the Simonsberg Mountains sits Pearl Valley, a golf estate that offers homeowners a relaxed environment to escape to.

Antoni Associates created this stunning interior using a variety of natural materials sourced locally, such as timber and stone, with bespoke furniture from OKHA Interiors providing 'wow' factor and a home that is modern. Neutral hues are enhanced by accessories that inject colour and texture into the home.

Open-plan living spaces flow seamlessy from one area to the next to allow natural light to flow throughout the interiors. A feature in the main living area is the off-shutter concrete ceiling that sits above the space and adds an element of raw, organic beauty that is framed by concealed lighting to highlight the feature and provide a soft glow in the evenings.





Splashes of colour link together the interior spaces and contrast with the natural beauty of the timber flooring and natural materials. Everything works together to create a contemporary home that is filled with warmth and light.

With a love of entertaining, the owners wanted a home that reflected and enhanced their lifestyle. The open-plan living area, kitchen, dining room and bar flow onto a covered entertainment area covered with raw concrete lit by concealed lighting that highlights natural organic materials used.
