i’ve spoken about my friend Amy before on the blog – you’ll be familiar with her famous collages if you’re a regular visitor. she has the best taste out of any person i know, and that is a fact. some might say she taught me everything i know. so when Kate and i were musing about who she should do her next house call series on (she blogs for local site its what i’m into) i suggested amz, as she is currently living in a mega cute cottage in the seaside village of kalk bay.

amz has a knack for quickly making any space she occupies into a home – when we lived together in a tiny, tiny room in london (harry potter’s cupboard would not be an exaggeration) she managed to make it cosy & liveable. then later on when we shared a (luckily) bigger flat she filled it up with tons of beautiful wooden furniture – many of which were handmade by her dad. you can see some of his pieces in these photos, the kitchen table notably (love those tapered legs) as well as the laptop tray (brilliant) and the bedside lamp (i have on too).

read the entire post here and be sure to check out the rest of Kate’s house calls.

ps: the cute pooch goes by Sophie, and she is a Hungarian Viszla in case anyone is wondering.


  1. I love the layering of things. One has to have an awareness how things work together. And I feel like some things tell stories and makes it that more interesting. Very curated yet organic. And Sophie is such a sugar. That first shot warmed my heart. I want her to meet my Oliver. They’d be good friends!

  2. Aww a heartwarming crib! I always have a penchant for little lovely things and Amy’s house has it all! Wish I can move out next year and start decorating my own *wink

  3. WOW
    The are so any amazing little details in this house, you need to look several times before you fully comprehend the beauty of it…
    I love the wooden little table on the bed for the laptop, that is genius!

  4. Who did the “We were in love but now we’re in debt” print?

  5. Love the vibe! How did Amy get all those cutouts to stick on her wall? Double sided tape? Sticky tack?

  6. I am obsessed with the “hello day be great” print – how can I find that??
