Step inside the home of Handré Pollard and fiancé Marise Malherbe, beautifully styled by HOMEMAKERS Expo exhibitor, Incanda Furniture.

It’s not every day that you get the chance to work on the home of an international rugby player, so the Incanda team was over the moon when the wonderful opportunity presented itself. From the grey and white surfaces and neat finishings to the open design and clean lines, the couple’s newly built home offered an ideal blank canvas to work from – any decorator’s dream!


For their future home, the duo envisioned a contemporary, timeless space, with a warm and inviting ambiance. They wanted to keep the look and feel of their home modern, minimalist and monochromatic, but with warm and personal touches. Both Handré and Marise are originally from Paarl in the Western Cape – they wanted to incorporate some elements of greenery, which remind them of their hometown, into their living space.


Get the look

To achieve the desired interior look, Incanda paired structured, contemporary furniture items with textured fabrics, indoor plants, baskets, ceramics and wood details. They decided on a mix of leather and fabric upholstery for their furniture, which added to the interesting aesthetic of their style. To incorporate touches of nature into their home, a variety of plants were used throughout their living space, focusing mainly on the patio where installed a vertical garden box and covered a feature table with greenery.
