A peek inside… Christelle Nagel’s Cape Town Apartment

Do you have friends that make you feel endlessly inspired? The type of friends that when you’ve spent time with them you are psyched & ready to conquer awesome things again? Well, my über-architect friend, Christelle Nagel & her awesome businessman husband, Werner Janse Van Rensburg are those friends for me. For us. They have […]

5 Reasons To Plant A Food Garden

I need to begin by saying that this is not a gardening blog & if I start dishing out gardening advice, then something might be seriously wrong here. But please stick with me & read a bit further. You will see where I’m going with this post. In our grown-up home, I experienced the joy […]

A peek inside… our first grown up home

Warning: this is a longer post than usual, so make up cup of tea, pull up a chair & enjoy! Living in your first own ‘real’ home is quite something. We discovered this just over two years ago when we bought our home. Until then we were happy apartment dwellers. Suddenly you feel all responsible […]

Our Living Room & Dining Area (Before & After!)

People often say that when looking for a home, you will know immediately when you have found the right one. That was exactly the case with our home in George* (in the Garden Route of the Western Cape). When I first saw it, I knew it was perfect. For now, I’ve decided not to take you […]

There is really nothing about this home that I don’t like, […]

Our Bedroom Make-over {Before & After}

Somehow for about seven years, our room did not receive much attention. It was always liveable, but rather sad looking. Sad pedestals, no headboard… Needless to say that when we moved into our (first grown-up) home in April 2015, I wanted to give our room some special attention. The ‘shell’ was lovely to start off […]

A peek inside… Karie Venter’s Jozi apartment

In life you get those who move into a place & inhabit (or squat in) it. Then you get those who make a space a home with a heart & a soul – even if it is not their own & even if they’re only going to spend a short amount of time there. Our dear […]


I am totally over the moon about sharing our Jozi apartment tour with you today, but I’m also slightly nervous. Until a bit over five months ago, we called this home & I’m almost scared that showcasing it will make me sob. Yes, it was one of my happiest living spaces to date. Possibly the […]
