In the spring of 2009, interior designer Yvonne O’Brien opened a showroom called The Private House Company where she sources furnishings from all over the world, as well as carefully selected pieces that inspire her to incorporate in her decorating projects. Enthused by the subtleties of nature and natural light, her shop is a reflection of her personal design style.
Yvonne has worked mainly on residential homes, but also has done work on a polo estate, a lodge in the Namibian Desert, as well as six camps at Londolozi Game Reserve. She creates rooms that are understated, personal and quietly refined. She feels a good room is richly layered while it maintains a simple restraint.
