Bishopscourt House

This French Provincial home was the perfect fit for a French family from Brussels relocating to Cape Town.

The French couple found interior designer Andrea Graff via an online search and after the initial conversation, knew she would be perfect for the job.

‘’We had four months to totally strip this home and redo seven bathrooms as well as the entire interior of the home. It was a total joint venture between the client and myself. She’s been the client that I’ve wished for my entire career. We did so many daring things. It was a dream come true.’’ says Andrea.

‘’There is a continuity. I love colour- there’s always colour. There are always things that don’t match, but somehow do match. It’s about mixing and layering, and not making it obvious and predictable.’’
- Andrea Graff
