Arro Home

Arro Home

i think that these cushions by Arro Home are probably meant for kids… but you know what? i don’t care. i would happily have a thousand pretzel cushions all over my house thank you very much. besides cushions they have all sorts of fun goods ranging from rugs to bedding. they…

Sunday Supply Co Beach Umbrellas

Sunday Supply Co

it is SO HOT here! enough to make you want to put an umbrella shade inside your house. luckily for us we are still at the beach, which means we have the advantage of a sea breeze (and the chilly Atlantic) to cool us down. that doesn’t mean people aren’t sweating their pits…

Lines & Dots

Lines & Dots

i am completely obsessed with these beautiful sculptural lights by Home Adventures, a personal project by Barcelona based design studio Álvaro Goula / Pablo Figuera. just have a look at them spinning at their online shop – it’s completely mesmerising!

Miss Moss: Kids Things

Kids Things

i was conflicted about doing this post because the one thing i feel weird about is “designing” your kid’s life, or creating a remotely instagrammeable lifestyle for your kid. on the other hand i think some kids things are pretty sweet, and i find myself straying into kidswear departments pretty often…

Beech Hall

Beech Hall

look, i never pass up the chance to peruse a new online shop. some i can skim for a couple of seconds before closing the tab, others – well, i get sucked in for a good long while. that’s how it turned out when the friendly people from Beech Hall pointed me…

Pink Sheets

Pink Sheets

oh sheet, i think i’m gonna have to convince my husband that we need pink bedding. i’ve absolutely fallen for these dusty blush, rose and coral hued sheets from Texas based shop Magnolia Armor. interestingly some friends and i had a conversation about when duvets first came to South Africa – as…

Mirror by Bower

Bower

when we travelled to NYC back in 2013, on our honeymoon, we went to a furniture fair somewhere in Brooklyn (i forget the name now) and that is where i first saw the work of Bower. i remember loving their work so much that i took their business card, so it’s…

Cacti1

Cacti Coasters

i never appreciated coasters until i became an adult. as a kid they were as ubiquitous in my parent’s house as ashtrays (even though neither of my parents smoker – why is that?) but i never bothered to use them because i was just a terrible child – as all terrible…

Nice Things No. 25

Goodies No. 25

one of the saddest things about living in South Africa is that i can almost never partake in online shopping. all the stuff you see on the blog that i love so much? i can never buy it. it either takes 6 months to arrive, gets lost in our dismal…

Pampa Rugs

Pampa

i have been receiving Pampa’s newsletter for the better part of a year, but am yet to blog about them – time to remedy that! Pampa was co-founded by photographers Victoria Aguirre from Argentina and Carl Wilson from Australia, who source handwoven products directly from the hands of indigenous Argentinian weavers. Every year we explore some of…

A Cool Silverlake Home Redesign by Homepolish

A cool LA home tour from Homepolish

Homepolish offers affordable interior design by the hour. basically you sign up, tell them about your project, and they connect you with one of their talented interior designers. you can buy a…

Château de Beauvoir

Château de Beauvoir

so there i was going down a google image rabbit hole and i found pictures of this beautiful château filled with flowers, and paintings of flowers, which lead me to French artist Claire Basler – and here we are. she lives and paints in her home Château de Beauvoir, “a natural choice”…
