BRINGING YOUR MOODBOARDS TO REALITY (EPISODE 2)

Read More

In my last video THE ART OF THE MOODBOARD I showed you how to create a moodboard, a visual representation of the elements that would go into decorating any ideal space.

Now as I’m not one to just give you theory and leave you stranded, I saw it best to practically show you how to not only create a moodboard but also how to convert it into a stylish space. So in this video I virtually styled two homes, for two imaginary clients, and showed you how one would go about doing so with a moodboard.

Read More

So guess who’s now making videos? Yup…I am!

Worry not I won’t stop blogging but seeing that a lot of you have been requesting for me to get into the wonderful visual world of YOUTUBE, who am I to deny you videos where I flare my arms around (yes, I unapologetically suffer from a very serious case of dramatic hand flaring when I speak) as I shower you with interior design and decor knowledge.

Speaking of decor knowledge, I would like to present you with my first of many videos; THE ART OF MOODBOARDS.  Let the record show that design of every perfect space begins with a moodboard and with that said, in this video I will show you the 5 important elements that all interior decorators incorporate into one.

So get comfortable, and click on the video below, and I will reveal the secrets that will help you turn your house into a home.

AFRICA DAY 2018: PRESENTING 5 AFRICAN FURNITURE AND DECOR DESIGNERS

Read More

Friday 25th May was AFRICA DAY, and in the spirit of full disclosure I wasn’t aware that this was even a thing so for those of you who are unfortunately not as informed as I was here’s what this amazing day is all about:

“Africa Day commemorates the founding of the Organisation of African Unity (now known as the African Union) on this day, 25 May, in 1963. It aims to celebrate African unity with each year the Day has a different theme.”

This year’s theme is African Union Agenda 2063 and OAC together with the partners have decided to adopt this theme “an integrated, prosperous and peaceful Africa, driven by its own citizens and representing a dynamic force in the international arena.” In order to pay homage to this theme I decided to do so by choosing 5 AFRICAN FURNITURE AND DECOR DESIGNERS, based not only in Africa but in the Diaspora, to show how design and African designers play a strong role in creating an integrated, prosperous and peaceful Africa, driven by its own citizens and representing a dynamic force in the international arena.

WHEN FASHION MEETS DECOR: AFRIGARDE AT CAPETOWN DESIGN INDABA 2018

Read More

In my last three post’s I’ve been taking you through my experience at this year’s Design Indaba conference and unfortunately this is the last post on the experience.

Let me give you a minute to take it in and recover from the shock…

Are you okay, have you accepted it?

You have? Good. Okay where was I…

During the conference, as I was admiring the designs nominated for THE MOST BEAUTIFUL OBJECT IN SOUTH AFRICA , I was lucky enough to stumble upon Thabo Makhetha Collective stand in the same area. The collective, a luxury African inspired concept store run by the amazing fashion designer Thabo Makhetha, that curates and brings together the works of other African designers such as ONEOFEACH, IMISO, Ruff Tung and the subject for this post, jewellery design firm Afrigarde.

Afrigarde, the brainchild of Maria Uys, really wowed me with two items that were on display, a chair and a loop light. If you read my post last year, WHEN FASHION MEETS DECOR: LOUIS VUITTON TA MILAN DESIGN WEEK 2017 , you know that I love it when fashion designers cross over to the wonderful world of interiors.

So here’s a look at not only this brilliant jewellery firm, who use felt to create hand made wearable art, but also the amazing products they created when they ventured into the wonderful world of decor.

Enjoy!
