French photographer Jean-Marc Lederman's stunning South African house is located just minutes from Cape Town in the Bay of Llandudno. Here he revels in the extraordinary colours and the pure light illuminating his home, which, with the help of architect Gregory Nortje, he has designed to be both a living and work space. Made of wood and steel, the house, with its enormous windows that can be retracted thanks to an electrical system, lives inside out — only glass seems to separate the interior from the landscape. Inside, Jean-Marc has kept furnishings to a minimum, sticking to earthy tones and vintage finds from flea markets in Paris and Nice — with bright cushions and tables to add a punch of colour here and there. Freeing and inspiring, it's not surprising that he's here to stay. More here on Marie Claire Maison.
