Colour Crush: Blush and Green

10/04/2017

There is a new colour crush on the my horizon. Beautiful Blush and Green. And whilst there’s really nothing new about this magical partnership, it is all over my radar and Pinterest pages. The rosy, pinkish tint is somewhat of trending colour for the season. Maison & Objet, an interior design trade fair held in Paris, is the benchmark for interior style each year. The January…

Louw Roets: Furniture inspired by the lighter side of life

08/03/2017

I met Louw Roets the SARCDA trade exhibition held annually in Johannesburg, South Africa. The event showcases wholesalers, importers and manufacturers of gift, decor and design items and I was really inspired after my last visit. Louw is a Cape Town based product designer and creates conceptual pieces with a fun element. He’s also a chatty and friendly individual who I enjoyed speaking to. Louw combines traditional…

Pantone Colours 2016: Rose Quartz and Serenity

25/03/2016

I have to admit, I didn’t fall in love with the Pantone’s choice of colours for 2016 when they were first announced. Hence the silence on this topic. The selected colour is supposed to reflect the spirit of the time. Pantone has said that colour “has always been an integral part on how a culture expresses the attitudes and emotions of the times”. For…

29/10/2015

There is so much to love about Jotun’s 2016 Wall Trends. The colours and themes are inspired by the world that surrounds us, and as Jotun so aptly puts it, are “reflections of a journey – one that makes a house become a home.” Whilst I love a bit of pretty marketing talk as much as the next person, let me assure you, this particular collection truly resonates with me and there is something in here for everyone.

Au Prints

25/09/2014

As you’ve probably realised, metallics are very much on my radar. My Pinterest feed is shinier than usual and its not even Christmas yet. I recently discovered something so pretty and unique, I just had to share. Let me take you back to high school (early nineties, anyone?) and see if you can recall which precious natural resource is represented by the…

Colour crush: Copper & Blush

11/09/2014

I am seeing copper and shades of pink everywhere. From stationery and cake decor to kitchens and living rooms. I am loving it. What a pretty pair they make. Metallics of all kinds are very much on trend, but copper is really catching my eye. Well-known for it’s efficient conductivity of heat, copper provides a perception of warmth as we head towards the…
