The Hills Eco Estate and Game Reserve in Pretoria is home to Barry and Anette Bredell, frequent travelers in Africa who now find their wandering feet treading on our floors. With the helping hand of Wayne Bennett from Italtile Menlyn, they have created a newly built house that has its foundations in earthy tones.

The primary reason why the Bredells decided to use Italtile was that it’s a package deal. That includes everything under one elegant roof: from service to quality, and the trust to meet deliverables. Another one of the reasons they chose Italtile is variety, which we can see they have an eye for in their eclectic African/ Moroccan wonderland. After previously dealing with Italtile, the Bredells decided not to shop around but only use Italtile for this new creation.

Wayne patiently provided them with more than enough attention to detail to be completely at ease with the process, which they thought would be more daunting. He even put on his interior design hat at times. The cozy Bredells entertain close friends, children and grandchildren in what they are now ecstatic to call home.
