Baby Things

above: kaleidoscope cloud blanket. forgive me, for i am not in my right mind. i am a broody, anxiously waiting mom-to-be. i can’t stop thinking about babies. our baby. we are only a month away from welcoming the little dude, so i’m awake at 2am googling “do i REALLY need a changing table?”…

Jorey Hurley

we won’t be doing a nursery initially, as the kiddo is just going to sleep in our room for the first few months. we would only just have moved into our new house by the time he arrives, so i’d want to figure out the space before settling on who sleeps where (needless…

Yes, I could live in a Swedish Chapel

i’ve reached the stage now where i’m kind of hate-scrolling through these interior design websites that feature perfectly perfect all white Swedish apartments. you know the type? i used to love them. now i’m just like UGH get away from me! please can i see some more personality and colour! then…

Chez Marie Sixtine

most of my “time-wasting” surfing activities (i.e. browsing Pinterest while in bed, on the couch, in the bath, on the bus…) revolves around our new house. searching for inspiration for kitchens, bathrooms, bedrooms… nurseries. it’s all pie in the sky kind of browsing for the moment, but isn’t it always like that…

Black Hardware

above image from The Design Files. i have some pretty big news… we bought a house! this has only been a few months in the making, we certainly weren’t planning on buying a new house and moving with a baby on the way. we’ve even done a few renovations in our flat (new parquet…

Mug Life

above: ceramic coconut bowl by Cristaseya. if i am ever in a homeware store with Anton and i start wandering towards the coffee mugs i think he breaks into a cold sweat, screaming internally don’t buy any more mugs. but you see – i want all of the mugs. specifically…

Beautiful Bathrooms by Ensemble Architecture

did you guys see that (thankfully brief) best nine photos of 2015 thing that seemingly took over Instagram at the end of last year? of course you did. funnily enough one of my most popular photos of 2015 was of a bathroom, and not even my own bathroom. and how do i know…

Marmoreal

you may have spotted this bananas patterned marble all over your pinterests, in the form of bathrooms and shops and furniture and design objects, and perhaps wondered what the story behind it is – well here it is! Marmoreal is an engineered marble, designed by British designer Max Lamb and produced by Dzek. it is…

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

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

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! Lines & Dots has its origins from dozens of ink drawings,…

Super Cool Frames

are these the coolest frames i have ever seen? yes, yes that is highly possible. designed by Fundamental Berlin these one of a kind frames come in brass or steel and “give small pictures more greatness”. this super creative company also design a bunch of other lovely things like furniture, lighting and…

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

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

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…
