My love for Skinny LaMinx | Giveaway

12/11/2017


Skinny LaMinx is one of my favourite South African design labels and has been for a long time. I featured this awesome brand in a blog post years ago and they just seem to keep screen-printing their way into my heart. I have watched this homegrown brand grown in size, but their values haven’t changed bit. They continue to design and manufacture all of their products in Cape Town – and their wide variety of products now include pillows, soft buckets, chairs, lampshades, kitchenware, bags, scarves and paper gifts.

The 2017/18 collection features a playful colour palette that will bring warmth and character into the heart of your home. My particular favourite pairing is the sage and grey tones that I think work so beautifully together.

The screen-printed textiles are super practical as they’re suitable for upholstery as well as home accessories, and can be used indoors or outdoors – ideal for Dubai at this time of year as we start to migrate outdoors. If you’re the creative-DIY-sewing type, you can also purchase fabrics by the metre and get creative.

I thought I’d round-up of my top 10 Skinny LaMinx favourites… and we could call it part of my ever expanding Christmas wish list!

I have to give a special mention the Bjorn Chair because quite frankly, I’m obsessed. Skinny LaMinx has teamed up with Fechters of Knysna – one of South Africa’s oldest and most trusted furniture makers to produce this gorgeous mid-century inspired armchair. It is made from solid wood, high-density foam and custom-upholstered in Skinny LaMinx fabric. Love, love, love!

As Christmas is around the corner and the spirit of giving is already upon us, I’m running a giveaway over on Instagram with a Skinny LaMinx shopping voucher worth USD 100 up for grabs. To get a taste of what they have on offer, hop over to their website and take a look around. If you fancy regular doses of style inso, sign up for their newsletter while you’re at it.

  • We started work on this shared sibling room just before the summer and after long delays with some of the items we ordered, we finally managed to apply the finishing touches last month. There's a full reveal on the blog. Link in profile.

  • @d3dubai is one of my favourite Dubai districts. I'll be back there this afternoon with @liveloudgirl to talk about building a business in the social media age and our @fronteriors journey thus far. We kick off at 6pm if you around and would like to join us.  #downtowndesign #ddw2019
  • Yesterday was our first day in the new studio.  Given the distinct lack of furniture, we unpacked all the crazy onto the one @andtradition sofa that we have. 😝 Thanks to @marli_smithphotography for capturing this hilarious moment, like the new age working mum that she is - with a baby on her hip. We were just missing our other brand new mummy. New chapter starts here. #studiofronteriors #girlgang
  • Dreamy terrazzo feels at the @nwt.newterracotta exhibit at @downtowndesignd #ddw2019 #terrazzo #downtowndesign
  • Aw, look at these little guys sky-rocketing the cuteness scale in yesterday's nursery installation. And as for that colour (Exhale) from @jotunpaintsarabia 2020 collection, I'm smitten!
  • @marli_smithphotography and I tried to shoot my kitchen makeover today but rain has ended play unexpectedly.... hey ho, you can't get me down though, I'm loving this new space too much!
  • A busy and exciting week lies ahead, peeps! Aside of an installation to complete for a lovely new client, I'm right on the cusp of a super exciting milestone. @liveloudgirl and I are moving into a shared studio space... because since the inception of @fronteriors we're basically married so getting a place together seems like the obvious next step πŸ˜‚ But seriously though, we're becoming a blended tribe of sorts and we are really excited for this next chapter of creativity, with our respective teams working side by side while we steer the runaway train that is fronteriors. 
The new studio is a dreamy blank canvas of endless artistic possibilities. We've already treated it to some @jotunpaintsarabia magic on the walls, but I suspect that that the evolution of this workspace will be constantly in motion. Stay tuned.

  • Forever discovering treasures in mom's office only to be told they're for someone else's room. She'll tell you that's the story of her life. Wonder where she gets that sense of drama? πŸ€” πŸ™ŽπŸΌβ€β™€οΈ 🐳 @bigstuffed

  • On the blog this morning is a better-late-than-never edition of our popular 'scene & heard' series. It's a look back at some of the team's summer highlights, including dreamy Netherlands coastal vibes and some Dubai gems discovered my Marli and Mila who spent a large chunk of the break locally.
