Hi friends. I am still all excited after my shoot today. I couldn’t let the day end, without sharing some blue inspiration with you. Blue is quite the trend colour at the moment. As we head into summer, it’s a colour that you will be sure to see around.You might remember this post from a week or two back, dedicated to the blues. Well, here is a little recap accompanied by my own visualisation.
Blues can be strong and sometimes cold if you are not careful. But, with the right pairing it can be the foundation of a wonderful palette.Read more
Good morning friends. I hope all those of you in Johannesburg are staying warm today. Isn’t it so typical of spring, to lure you in with warm weather? And then, just as you pack away your winter woollies, it unleashes a cold and rainy chiller of a day. Well, this is the perfect day for curling up with a coffee and a good book. Speaking of books, have any of you heard of Spineless classics?Read more
Hi there friends. How was your Monday? Did the day go your way? I hope so. I am finally able to share the painted piano episode with all of you. I added the finishing touches yesterday and delivered the piano this afternoon. Now I am free to blog about it. (I didn’t want my client seeing it here for the first time. )
So, what exactly did I do? And why? Well, I have been working with a client to redo her TV room. Her kids are out of the house and she would like a more elegant, adult take on the room. We had the couches reupholstered, bought two new chairs and painted some feature walls. But the piano remained untouched. Until she saw a painted piano in one of my design books- and the rest, as they say, is history…
I just want to share some great news with you guys. As you know I have been busy designing a range of scatter cushions and prints to use in my upcoming photo shoot for the new site. Well, I am very excited to tell you that although the cushions are still in the process of being made, the labels have arrived. It is such a great feeling to see my brand on its own little label. Purple chair and all.
I will keep you posted as we get closer to the actual product launch.
Good Friday friends! I hope you have all had a lovely week and that Friday is treating you kindly. I am very glad for the weekend. I plan to do very little if any work and to spend some quality time with my hubs and possibly look at property. But before I switch of the computer a Sweetest Thing To Say To Ex Wife To Get Her Back nd my brain (I wish), there is a little something that I want to share with you first.
I spent the last few hours of last night a few this morning making this mood board. This is my take on a designer (textile, graphic, interior etc.) studio.Read more
Hey there friends. It must be a busy week if I only get round to blogging this time of the evening. I have to admit that I have been somewhat distracted. You may have noticed the Blogging your way button in the sidebar? Well, I am currently attending this e-course. I can already tell you that it is great! I am making lots of new friends all over the world and learning a lot about being creative, a blogger and just creative me.
I have been spending a it of time exploring my new friend’s blogs. It is so fun to meet people and see there blogs. It is amazing how different we all are. Today I wandered over to my new friend Gudy’s blog, eclectic trends. I was having a bit of a snoop around when I came across an image that literally tugged at my heart strings. The images moved me and I immediately did some research. I am happy to share my discovery of jj locations with you.Read more
Good day friends.
Ok, I have been doing a bit of research, I have managed to scrape together some bravery and I am now (hopefully) ready to start blogging on WordPress. I haven’t been blogging much these last few weeks and I would like to apologise for that. It was an absolutely mad rush to get the blog and new website finalised in time. (You might notice that a few things are still not completely sorted- we are working on it. Please be patient.)
As an apology of sorts, I would like to treat you to the work of the amazing photographer Vincent Leroux.Read more
Hi there friends and welcome to our new home on WordPress. As you know, I have been threatening and talking about the new site for ages. It has been quite a struggle, technically and otherwise to get this show on the road. And, alas, all is not complete yet. But here we are! After months of planning, talking, scheming, chaos and general mayhem I am glad to be here.
In general it seems to be a time of change. Not only is it Spring here in the southern hemisphere, but my good friend got married recently, it looks like we might actually be moving into a house at the end of the month and I am participating in a new course (again).
With so much change going on it is easy to get swept away and forget that beauty, joy and love is often found in

the most unexpected of places.
And sometimes, those places are in your home, at your feet, in the company of a friend and in yourself.
I hope this new site will bring you much joy and inspiration. Please let me know what you think of our new home. Please be kind, as we are still trying to figure it all out.
