WINDOW TREATMENT: ROD PLACEMENT & CURTAIN LENGTH

Read More

Let me set a scene for you. You’re going out somewhere special today (a wedding/date/get together…something or the other) and you have to dress to the nines. It then hits you that there is this perfect outfit you haven’t worn in a while and you’re extremely excited. So an hour to the event you’re getting ready and the unfortunate takes place…its too tight. The midnight snacking has caught up with you and you’ve gained a few kilos. You are hit with the reality that as wonderful as an outfit may be if it is ill fitting you will look ridiculous.

In this same case a pretty room with poorly hung curtains is like a beautiful, pulled-together lady wearing an ill fitting outfit. It cheapens everything else, stands out in a jarring way and just makes everyone feel uncomfortable.

Let’s combat this problem head on and really get into what some of you are doing wrong:

SPOKEN4ART: WHEN ART MEETS POETRY

Read More

Have I ever told you guys how my journey into interior design and decor begun? Well, its actually a very random story to say the least.

I’d always wanted to be a civil engineer so all the subjects I took in school were geared in that direction. Art, on the other hand, was mostly a hobby as I usually sketched portraits and dress designs when I was bored. So fast forward to when I was in SAINT MARY’S doing I.B. and as expected I was taking the science and math classes that would take me to that ‘glorious job’ as a civil engineer. On one of those days when I didn’t have a class my friend Yvonne asked me to escort her to her design class. So I did. Long story short, the teacher thought I wanted to join the class and I obliged her fantasies and stayed. At the end of the class I knew without a doubt that design was my destiny. I went home, told my mum and 2 weeks later I changed my subjects to those that would lead me to the designer I am today.

I’ve always been forever grateful to Yvonne for being some form of catalyst to that change. Unfortunately as life would have it we lost touch for many years, but a couple of  weeks ago I was pleasantly surprised to find out that she was still creating beautiful artwork through her company SPOKEN ART. The unique thing about it is her pieces are inspired by poems her business partner writes.

MAMA SHELTER HOTEL: PARIS

Have you missed me? Worry no more, today I come bearing eclectic gifts for you..

Now a couple of years ago I created a very bold colour scheme for a client’s room and although she was initially skeptical (as most people would be about having a black wall) I’m glad she trusted me because she fell madly in love with it. Here’s a snippet of the room:

RESTAURANT INSPIRATION: JAVA HOUSE EDITION

Read More

If you know me you know that I am addicted to JAVA HOUSE, and if you don’t know me, now you know! Seeing that I’m disclosing things about myself, I guess you should also know that I’m a stickler for good service and good food that not only fills my plate but also my stomach. Thus my love and addiction to the wonderful world that is JAVA.

Now let the record show that this is not a post sponsored by them (but if they feel like doing so, who am I to refuse) nor is it is a restaurant review. This is simply the first post in the RESTAURANT INSPIRATION series where I will be showing you how to emulate your favourite restaurant’s interiors into your home.
