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 […]

The magic that is RIALHEIM

As we pulled into Clairvaux farm – the home of Rialheim ceramic studio in Robertson in the Western Cape – a few months ago, I could immediately sense the magic.  It wasn’t a long visit, but the inspiration that I got still lingers.

Just like last year with Marsala – the deep wine red – they had a surprise (make that two) for us when the new colour was announced early in December 2015. Yes, for 2016 Pantone named two colours of the year: Serenity & Rose Quartz.

A PEEK INSIDE… THE HOME OF KARIE VENTER

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 […]
