Instant Grass – interiors21. May 2013
Nick and I designed Instant Grass’s new space in Braamfontein a few months ago and now we finally have a decent collection of photos that we can share. It was so much fun coming up with ideas and sourcing things, we had some stuff custom made for the space and then other things were sourced from here there and everywhere.
We made the 14-seater table, the bike chandelier, the honeycomb stools, the crate bookshelf and the painting of the team that work there. We were so happy with how everything came out. Yay us. Hee.
Victorian mansion of amazingness17. April 2013
Look at this beautiful and sophisticated Victorian mansion owned by the Potter family. I can imagine living in this amazing space, I love almost everything in it, there are such nice fun touches and even though it’s been put together so thoughtfully it still looks like a lived in home and not a set for a magazine shoot.
- This house is one of the most unique and character-filled homes we’ve had the privilege of documenting for TDF, somehow effortlessly combining a respectful nod to its Victorian heritage, with an unmistakably eclectic, contemporary sense of style. This fine balance can be attributed to the remarkable vision and skill of interior designer Caecilia Potter, who lives here with husband James and their kids Jasper and Cyrus, and Archie the cat.
Spaces16. January 2013
I’m constantly collecting reference for our one day house/apartment and I love being able to see inside other people’s homes. It’s so inspiring to see what they do with space whether it be big or small, what they do with the walls and the combination of work and living space. I could seriously look at interiors all day long and be more than happy.
But anyway here is a sweet little apartment that belongs to Sandra Juto and Johan Pergenius who are illustrators & graphic designers based in Friedrichshain, Berlin. Thought I would share it with you guys because I love how lived in it looks.

Anatomy Design05. December 2012
A new interiors shop called Anatomy Design has just opened up in 44 Stanley and I went to go check it out. It’s a cozy space that is full of very sweet things to buy from ceramic pieces to art to designer furniture to cushions to some super cool lamps, amongst other things. I definitely think it’s worth a visit if you are looking for some nice stuff for your house or a gift for someone for Christmas, I mean who wouldn’t want a plate with a pigeon on it?! Love those.
- Craftsmanship, simplicity and the use of materials in their natural form has become a trademark for products designed and made by Anatomy Design. They are also stockists the unique and curious brands, such as Number Nineteen and Josephine Road.
Have a seat or 10.23. November 2012
Nick (a.k.a Nikki Boo Boo Child) and I are busy designing the inside of Instant Grass’s new office in Braamfontien. It’s one of the first jobs of this nature that we are working on, but it’s been such a lot of fun thinking of ideas and sourcing stuff. I really hope we get to do more of this kind of work in the future – hint hint.
We are busy putting the whole thing together now and when it’s done I will be sure to show you guys the whole thing. We have had some stuff especially made for the space and some of it arrived today.
These hexagon stools are designed so that you can push them together to make a coffee table or pull them a part so they can be used as seating.
I think they came out pretty cool. Yes?
