Beautiful Johannesburg Westcliff Home

Last week I had the pleasure of photographing an amazing home situated in the picturesque suburb of Westcliff. I was commissioned by Clare Vasta and top area realtors Kimberly Dods & Carol Truter from Pam Golding to create a set of daytime & evening images of this beautiful home for their marketing purposes. I was in heaven whilst shooting this home and always feel the photo session is far too short when I have so much fun.For any enquiries on this property, contact Carol on 082 466 1045 or Kimberly on 082 601 2099.

Beautiful Johannesburg Westcliff Home

The highlight from my shoots today is without a doubt a very bold and colourful home situated in the lovely Waterford Estate in the heart of Fourways. I will never be so brave to play with colours in my home as has been done here, but the result is quite remarkable and to me will be unforgetable. I am used to seeing artsy homes mostly in the Melville area of Johannesburg where many brave homeowners style and colour scheme their homes in sometimes radical ways, yet the final results mostly seem to work! This home could have been plucked straight from Melville and planted where it is now.Here is a quick sample from the shoot today. What do you think of this? Are you brave enough to attempt something like this in your own house?
