DECOR CRUSH: THE TWO L’S {LADDERS & LOCKERS}

For the last couple of months I’ve been playing with the idea of incorporating ladders & lockers in my décor. And to my surprise, I see that this is a décor trend that is taking off which makes me even more excited to incorporate these trends in our home, & possibly in another space that […]

OUR BEDROOM MAKE-OVER {BEFORE & AFTER}

Somehow for about seven plus years, our room has never received 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 […]

CORICRAFT HAS LOTS OF SURPRISES {PLUS WIN 1 OF 2 VOUCHERS}

In my mind, Coricraft has always been synonymous with comfortable couches & quality furniture at fair prices. The good news is that they recently refurbished the Coricraft store in the Garden Route Mall (right here on my doorstep) AND introduced Volpes Linen!  You heard right: from couches to curtains & beds to bedding, you can […]

A PEEK INSIDE… THE HOME OF KARIE VENTER

A PEEK INSIDE… THE HOME OF SIMONE KONYN

I am over the moon about this post, because it is something that I have wanted to do for a long time now. I know so many women with really beautiful homes – happy homes with personal artefacts & style & each tell a story. So today I’m featuring the very first home (of hopefully […]

THE WONDERFUL LIFE OF APARTMENT LIVING

We will soon be leaving our beloved condo, in exchange for what will probably be a grown-up, suburban home. The time is right. I know. But I feel a bit like the time when I had to let my little student car (a VW beetle or Volla affectionately called Gert) go. I knew the timing […]
