Former Miss World Rolene Strauss and her husband D’Niel Strauss have been renovating their home since April this year and she took to Instagram on 5 August to give her followers an update. 


Medical doctor Rolene Strauss was crowned Miss South Africa in 2014 and thereafter became the third South African woman to be crowned Miss World that same year, following Penelope Anne Coelen in 1958 and Anneline Kriel 1974. In 2016 she married businessman D’Niel Strauss.

“What I love about our relationship is the unconditional positive regard we have for each other. Most times it is easy, sometimes it’s a choice, but we consciously choose it every day, multiple times a day,” wrote Rolene about her husband on Instagram. 

The couple have two sons together.


The couple are about to put the finishing touches on the renovations of their home which began in April this year. Rolene and D’Niel are renovating the upper level of their home in Val de Vie Estate, Paarl and the model took to Instagram to give her 311 000 followers an update on how the renovations are going through a live video. 

“I thought that it might be fun to take you through our renovations upstairs, if you’re all keen,” said Srauss at the beginning of the live video.

The home renovation tour began with the couple’s eldest son’s room, followed by the youngest son and their bathroom. Then Rolene and D’Niel’s bedroom and bathroom was revealed. She explained that the upstairs was previously four bedrooms but they instead broke down the walls and transformed it into a walk-in closet. She then visited the garage, which she described as a “nightmare” right now, showing her followers all the boxes and packages she had stored as well as racks of clothing, building materials and bathroom equipment.
