I really like it when my doorbell rings letting me know that there is a delivery on its way up to my house. I like it even more so when the parcel is a surprise gift from the one and only Stokperd and Hope Gin.

When I unwrapped the delivery I was so surprised and excited to have this absolutely beautiful gold drinks tray crafted by Stokperd standing in front of me along with a bottle of probably one of the nicest gins I have ever tasted, Hope Gin.

I have been wanting a drinks trolly for a while now, but hadn’t found one that I really liked and was really excited to bring home and add to our collection of things and now I’m so glad that I never ever did find that ‘perfect’ trolley because it’s currently standing in my house.

Ferm LIVING’s spring/summer 2015 collection

February 6, 2015


This is Ferm LIVING’s new spring/summer 2015 collection. There are so many wonderful pieces to choose from that I’m kind of glad you can’t get their whole collection here because I would probably bankrupt myself, but I’m also sad that you can’t get their whole collection here. If you know where I’m coming from. Although I think there is as store in Hyde Park that stocks some of their stuff. I better steer clear.

– Danish label ferm LIVING draws on Scandinavian design traditions and retro charm – but with a distinctive graphic edge that makes every item firmly contemporary.

GIVEAWAY – Win a Graeme Bettles lamp

July 7, 2014


The awesome Graeme Bettles Design company from Cape Town mailed me a couple of days ago to tell me that they are sending Shangie one of their amazing ‘Sitting Lamps’ (first lamp below) for her new bedroom, which I’m super excited about. Graeme Bettles is a talented local designer who left his career in advertising to explore his creativity in furniture and product design and who is definitely making some very cool things to lust over. His latest design in his character lamp series is ‘The Shy Lamp’, which I also think is very cool.

But I’ll tell you what’s even cooler, Greame is not only going to send me one lamp, but TWO. One for our home and one for 1 of yours. And not only is it super easy to enter, but we’re randomly choosing the winner in swift time too. Next Tuesday the 15th of July I’ll let you guys know whose taking home either ‘The Shy Lamp’ or a ‘Sitting Lamp’, the choice is all yours.

Chiaozza makes quirky, fun furniture like colourful shelves, mirrors, birdhouses and some crazy plant sculptures. I wouldn’t mind some of these pieces in my house. And then when I was putting this post together I realised that I blogged about this couple’s super awesome loft apartment in Brooklyn last year sometime. They live in a space with built in cabins, it’s such a cool space, click here if you would like to have a look see.

Stockholm apartment

May 2, 2014

Just take a quick look at this damn fine apartment in Stockholm. How great are the high ceilings, wooden floors, huge windows, decor, checkered floors, furniture? Aaaaaa it’s like a pretty grown-up’s flat that wears pretty clothing and has a pretty face and a pretty job and a pretty life. Elgh.

Below is what the apartment looked like before this, it was till owned by the same person and it was nicely done up, but now it looks like it’s wearing a 24 carat gold Lindt chocolate bunny, if that makes sense. Of course it does.

Sorrento beach house

April 23, 2014


This beautiful, light and bright space is a weekend retreat that belongs to Melbourne interior architect and designer Shareen Joel. I love everything about it, the openness created by the natural light and use of white and timbre floors and then the darker spaces too, like the bathroom and outside shower. It’s situated near the beach and I can only imagine that it’s surroundings are as beautiful as this little holiday nook.
