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 […]

Today I’m going to give you a peek inside the gorgeous home of Charlene & Ruan Oberholzer in Menlopark, Pretoria.

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

HOME TOUR: OUR JOZI APARTMENT

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 […]

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 […]
