  • Cath’s Tamboerskloof Renovation

    Since we’ve started on our house-hunting mission I’ve been looking at houses like a hungry-blood-hound… wanting to sniff out the best suppliers in all the land for tiles, light fittings, chairs, everything. Enter Cath Crawford’s beautifully renovated home, she’s done a superb job in creating a light and airy retro-inspired space by doing a few clever face-lifts together with the…

  • House Hunting

    So Jeremy and I have taken the leap and sold our sweet Greenpoint home, eeeeek. It’s been quite an emotional sale on our part, but along with mixed feelings of saying goodbye we are also excited about finding our new dream house…which has been an interesting experience to say the least. While browsing CT property websites we’ve seen some shocking pics, nice looking…

  • Landet Järna

    I’ve  told you before about my life envy for the beautiful work of Florist Amy Merrick… and following along those dream-lines is Landet Järna , a flower shop based in Stockholm that sources directly from nature. This means they stock only seasonal, biodynamic, locally produced, pesticide-free flowers and plants. That just about deserves the Nobel peace prize in my books.

  • La belle France

    Jeremy and I spent  a couple of weeks in the south of France, pretty much eating cheese, saucisson and drinking wine + beer. And repeat repeat repeat. The French are not as naturally welcoming as the Italians, but they have pain au chocolat that tastes like redemption itself. So we could deal with them. Our tour de gastronomie went like…

  • Sue & Brad’s Greenpoint home

    My Greenpoint neighbour Sue is one of those people that I’ve always admired for her calm presence, easy sense of style and mad design skills. When we recently used her lounge and bedroom as location for the Lisbett & Lucky shoot I thought it was about time that I showcased the home of gorgeousness that she shares with husband Brad and…

  • Paul Crofts Studio

    Three of the most clever restaurant designs I have seen in a long time are all by the inspiring London based design studio Paul Crofts. Each is based on a strong concept that ties in beautifully with the name and inspiration behind the restaurant. The first is a crêperie in west London where gingham and lace patterns (referenced from French bonnets)…

  • Emily Moon

    We spent the long weekend at  Emily Moon canoeing down the Bitou River, flanked on either side by tall reeds and the sounds of frogs and birds, long sunsets, log fires, soothing food, slow mornings and two very cold swims in the sea. The perfect way to revive a city soul.

  • Söderberg Agentur

    Söderberg Agentur is a collection of creative people that range from prop makers, stylists, animators, illustrators and photographers. I particularly liked this shoot that Patric Johansson did for Elle Interior, clean and calm.

  • Alhvem

    Over the past few weeks Jeremy and I have been scouting for a new home, and if you’ve ever done the 2 – 5pm show house stint in Cape Town you’ll know what we’re going through. Houses are advertised as being in “mint” condition and when you get there its a hodge podge of weird renovations with rooms big enough…
