Synopsis
You’d be forgiven for thinking that this home was located in the heart of the French countryside rather than in Cape Town’s southern suburbs. With its elegant monochromatic palette and uncluttered Gallic charm, it would fit right in. When interior designer Caline Williams-Wynn and her husband, Tim, relocated from Joburg, they were looking for a home that would be in close proximity to schools for their daughter Chiara, now nine (their son, Sebastien, now 18, had gone off to boarding school in Grahamstown). It also needed to be able to accommodate Caline’s generously proportioned hoard of French collectables.

A Francophile of note, she spent many years trawling the famed antique markets in Paris and the French countryside in search of unique kitchenalia for her Parkhurst, Joburg, store, Artichoke. The couple came across a property in Kenilworth that had previously operated as a school. They were undeterred by its uninspiring 1950s style, its rabbit warren-like classrooms, and its pokey windows, and had a vision of how the otherwise sound building could be renovated to become a comfortable family home.
