A couple of things I like when starting a new project - nice clients, a beautiful canvas with immaculate parquet flooring and lots of natural light, being called a 'detail fucker' in Danish and a question like 'can a cat push over a vase on this shelf?'. Sometimes you get one of the above, and when you're really lucky you get all of these boxes ticked in one go. In their own words Gretmol is an 'online brand incubator with an intense focus on e-commerce (imagine one half product development lab and one half marketing dojo)'. In my words they are

I first met Bongeziwe Mabandla in 2017 he's intrigued me ever since. His music is not like anything I have ever heard. It's hypnotic. It's got an ancient tribal Xhosa undercurrent but also completely fresh and modern. Mesmerising. He has created something we all dream of doing, something completely new. The music people call it Afro-Folk, I just like it on repeat. If you're new to his music, listen to Bawo Bam first (ft. Spoek Mathambo) or watch the music video - it won the best music video at the Capital City Black Music Festival in Austin, Texas. And even though

What a ride. I've gone from monochrome to full colour in the space of 2 months, am I dizzy yet? No! It feels so gooooood. In the second series of my makeover with Builders I've taken on my bedroom in subtle but not so subtle way (read 'no crazy paint'). The major change has been the headboard, an addition that makes the room feel so much warmer and way comfier. Photography by Miss Moss. BEFORE - super paired-back and minimal. La Muerte taking centre stage on the cushion. AFTER - a sudden death to minimalism as the room erupts in a riot

We renovated our home 3 years ago but at the moment it feels more like 10 years. Having a little person in the house means that white walls don't stay white, the coffee tables become works of 'art'  and there's a lot of extra paraphernalia (toy boxes, high chairs, prams etc) that you have to accommodate. Apart from Elle leaving her mark on our space, I've become tired of seeing the same old walls and decided it's time for a do-over. In collaboration with the lovely team at Builders I'm excited to share my makeovers and inspiration with you room-by-room,

As an ex-corporate world dweller (yes, that was my previous life) nothing gave me more joy than re-doing this beast of a space. Added to this joy was the luck of working with a client that was open minded and happy to renovate the space they had inherited, as in like - completely. They call themselves a not-so-normal financial services company and with slogans like "part giant, part giant-slayer" I knew we were a good match from the start. Sanlam Indie's brief to me was to eradicate all vestiges of the old corporate environment and to create an office that reflected

Let me start this home tour by telling you about the best buns in town, belonging to one Warren Rasmussen. And these are not any old buns, I'm talking sticky sweet cardamom buns with crunchy sugary bits on top. Heaven! So not only is this the beautiful home of the Rasmussen family, but also the home-based bakery of Warren's side project - The Local Baker. But all the Rasmussens are a creative bunch, Emma works in advertising and also makes beautiful bean bags and sews magical kids dress-up clothes and decor, and Warren's day job is actually photography. They have

What do you do when you get an opportunity to shoot a beautiful home, but you only have an iphone, a plane to catch and a small hurricane in your care? You make a plan! And that's exactly how Maryke (my sister and I) shot the beautiful Forest Town home in Jozi below. Taking turns  entertaining Elle - who was running around at full tilt; and taking snaps with the phone like ninja moms. I don't think we did the home full justice, but you will still be able to appreciate the strong architectural lines, incredible art collection and good

I am a self confessed closet 'flower arranger' so when I meet someone who actually knows what they're doing I get all girl-crushy. Bee Soboil is one such talented crush-worthy-person. She spent years in the advertising industry dreaming of a life filled with flowers, and lucky for all of us she left that world behind and followed her dream. She now spends her time teaching Ikebana classes, which is the Japanese art of flower arranging that is so beautiful it breaks your heart. Instead of putting wild bunches together is more restrained and minimal in it's approach, focussing on the

Happy 2018 to all y'all! I'm very excited to kick off the new year with this bang-bang-banger of a house and a few pineapples thrown into the mix. The first time Lesley Sykes (an old university pal) invited me over to chat about some pieces for their new home it was still a complete building site, and it's been mind blowing to see how it's transformed into something truly magnificent. When the couple headed back to South Africa from the UK they spotted a run-down Victorian in Sea Point and it was love at first sight. The convenient positioning was a

Oooh Xmas is upon us and if you're getting nervous about the big day and entertaining a clan of family, then relax, because help has arrived. My first strategy is to start drinking as early as possible and to keep that up, the second is to have most of the food prepared and ready before guests arrive. Easy (in theory). Keeping things effortless and low key is a skill I try to master every day. Sadly I'd be lying if i said that I am anywhere near perfecting it, but there are a few tricks that I've learnt and if it
