ranch style

Thank goodness that when most needed, a shot of design inspiration is sent...this time through the pages of the latest Elle decoration SA.  These gave me the heads-up that I needed for a project that I am being particularly indecisive about (not a trait I am used to).  Love the comfortable style.  In reality this is the Santa Monica ranch of Elen DeGeneres and Portia de Rossi, and what a space to get away too.  Additional images via ElleDecor.

it's all in the detail

A sneak peek of some of the finishing in process at wonen+.  I can't wait till it all comes together next week when we do the final installation.  Love my job!

how gorgeous are these...

I'm in love with the latest pieces from Mia of Studio Number 19 .  The designs are fresh out the kiln, and completely covetable.  My favourites are the set of skeleton plates, and the beautiful, and even more so in real life.  For more of her new designs follow the links above, all available through anatomy design.

There is a lot keeping us busy at the moment, including an awesome new interior shop called wonen+.  We (that's Mia and I) are having a lot of fun with this one.  Its going to become your favourite place in Pretoria to furnish your interiors.  We've seen some of what Janien is going to stock, and we love it all...wish it was open already.  A few site shots, as its always good to see where we started from...

sometimes it gets worse before it gets better...

getting back into it

Excuse the radio silence.  Yes, I do seem to keep saying that lately, but I'm going to try get back to regular blogging again.  Too  many other things going on, and not enough time for the all important indulgences. I saw these today, love Emmas inspiration.  Click on the images for links.
