this is a home edition of These Things – a Home Things, if you will. at the moment my mind is quite preoccupied with making our place look nice. we live in a one bedroom flat in Sea Point, a suburb of Cape Town on the Atlantic seaboard – literally steps away from the promenade. this area has been having a revival of sorts lately, with new coffee places and restaurants popping up almost every day. and i can see us living here for a long time… as long as we never needed a bigger place (cough-kids-pets-cough).
i have some home improvements in mind that i am hoping to share soon (having our balcony room redone, for a start) but in the meantime i am always gathering inspiration from around the web. you know me… gathering, gathering.
first up, the new bedroom collection from Douglas and Bec. i love that round headboard… it’s scuh an old-school shape – but done in such a new, fresh way.

the Canyon series of ceramics by Red Raven Studios:
for residents of Cape Town (and beyond), Bofred is a cool new furniture shop:
the Levis x Pendleton blanket (i’ve always wanted a Pendleton blanket…)

a DIY geometric wooden floor by The Nugget:
sweet goods by Pastrana Studio:
really love the furniture by the cleverly named Please wait to be seated:
