DECOR UPDATE

May 16, 2019

What a whirlwind life has been these past few months, I suddenly woke up to it being May? What… how? A month away from mid year and clearly time had flown by! I had an incredible summer this season, with styling work back in full swing and traveling to Namibia (again) for almost 4 weeks during the festive time! I feel like life has really settled and I finally have some time to look around and take a big breath. With La Luna (my linen homeware brand specialising in scatter cushions if you didn’t know) carrying on, mostly as a supplier to interior design firms and private clients, my interior eye has been awakened to the magic of my home. A sanctuary of special memories, far too many dinner parties and a space where I can truly be myself.

DAYLIGHT

September 16, 2018


So as a Capetonian you are NEVER allowed to wish the rain away, like ever. That shit is ingrained in us for the rest of our lives, however I am inclined to a little sunshine.

There are actually a few places in Morocco, Algeria, Lesotho and of course South Africa where snow visits each year. I’ve seen snow in Europe before, mostly when I was young on family holidays but to think we spotted snow less than 3 hours away from Cape Town?

WOLSLEY GETAWAY

August 27, 2018


We are weekend people, not that we only live for the weekend – because that would be wasting your life away working just to be free for 2 days. So no, not in that sense but we like to (let’s say) utilise it to it’s most maximum capability. In layman terms we like to leave the bustling city and head out into the surrounding landscape. With Cape Town traffic; on a Friday you really have no other option but to leave the city by 2/3pm… else you just sit bumper to bumper building up negative energy. We are lucky  that both Luke and I can manage to wrap up our days and be ready for an afternoon lift off, which is precisely what we did heading into the Wolsley, Ceres region this weekend. We nestled ourselves in the Boland on a pristine working berry farm called Palmietvlei, home to the most beautiful accommodation; The Riverstone House. They actually have two sets of rentals on the farm, a house that can sleep about 8 and a very cool container-turned home called FamTin where we stayed for 2 nights, which can sleep 4.
