Lauren’s family heart

Balisa Ntloko

AN all-rounder of note, Algoa FM radio presenterty, Varsity College lecturer and 2014 Half Iron Man athlete Lauren Mungur gives a sneak peek into her favourite room.

She chose her parents’ Cotswold home’s living area, saying “it’s been something of a labour of love”.

When Mungur’s parents recently renovated their house, the new living room was added. Initially having planned to build a carport, her father saw his little “project” take a grand turn into a living room.

Mungur said it was her favourite because “tying it all together” had been a communal effort.

“My father laid the gleaming wooden floors, my sister gifted my parents the large leather couches. I helped with the painting of the walls and ceilings, and my mother and I have been scouring furniture at home stores around the city”.

Describe your style in five words: warm, inviting, simple, classic, comfortable.

On your decor wish list:: a dark brown, leather lounge suite for my new home, and a brand new kitchen and bathroom.

Your favourite colour: I love earthy tones, with splashes of colour for effect.

Your pet hate in decor: clutter and dust collectors. I like open spaces and minimalism when decorating.

Your decor indulgence: white linen. There is nothing better than climbing into a bed with freshly laundered, crisp, white linen.

Favourite character from a movie or book: I’m a bit of Bridget Jones mixed with Elizabeth Bennet from Pride and Prejudice, my favourite female protagonist. Both enjoy a certain amount of eccentricity, accompanied with a strong will and a deep desire for both independence and affection.

Need decor inspiration? Nelson Mandela Bay certainly has plenty of style, so if you know someone who has a favourite room and is willing to share their flair with our readers, drop an e-mail to:
