OPENING: Franschhoek welcomes a new Paint&Place to the Village Artisan
FRANSCHHOEK is known by many as the food and wine capital of the country. It hosts more award-winning restaurants than anywhere else in South Africa. Once a sleepy country retreat, the village of Franschhoek began experiencing a boom since the 1990s. Today it appeals to an audience of lifestyle lovers, cultural enthusiasts and those who enjoy some of the finer things in life.
To add to the colourful diversity of Franschhoek, one of the oldest paint contractors in the country, Paul Silberman, will officially be opening a Paint&Place in Franschhoek next week. Paul Silberman has been in the paint industry for 30 years – having spent 15 of those years in Sea Point.
Paul knows all the facets of the paint industry and is credited with having refurbished one of the oldest farmhouses in Franschhoek. This 1913 homestead, called Domaine Des Anges, has been transformed to its former grandeur.
DOMAINE DES ANGES
Paul made use of a variety of Midas Paint products to restore Domaine Des Anges to its former glory. For the outside of the building he used Peinture and Midas Roof Paint – specifically ‘Simply Charcoal’. On the inside he used Pigmented Floorcote, Stucco and Down To Earth Matt.
The renovation of the Colmant winery – tucked away in the far end of Franschhoek Valley, is another project that Paul Silberman has been proud to be involved in. For the outside of the winery Paul coated the walls using Midas 240. To create the unique ambiance inside the winery, Paul used Steracon – a highly specialised product containing an anti-bacterial and anti-fungal additive with an active ingredient that repels bacteria, fungi and other potentially harmful microbes.
Paul Silberman is a specialist when it comes to renovations, and is ready to offer his advice, service and expertise to anyone looking to renovate their home.
The new Paint&Place store in the Village Artisan of Franschhoek (Shop no. 80C) has been tastefully done in that old French style which is so typical of Franschhoek. The freshly coated store will cater to the whole Cape Winelands area and is centrally located for all visitors to enjoy the wonderful pleasures of the Western Cape.
- Paint&Place will be offering various specials this season and is currently exhibiting Summer Promo Feature Walls.
