"When you realize that a beautiful interior has very little to do with objects and a whole lot to do with spirit, general well being and upliftment you find the soul of interior design. If you have respect for your surroundings and everything has it's perfect place you interact with your world differently you carry yourself differently. My father used to say that the state of your surroundings is the state of your mind. Look around your home, let your home be the foundation of your aspiration."

Written by a South African artist, interior designer & product designer.

Busy Busy!!

I have been very busy lately with all sorts of projects and I wanted to share my latest with you.  As you may remember I posted this project a couple of weeks ago and I now have the chairs reupholstered.  I think they turned out great!  Once the room is completed I will post more pictures.

I'm in love (again)

These rugs are so beautiful.  I can't decide which one I like the best.  If I had to choose I'm pretty fond of the first one.

Love my new placemats

I was in deperate need of some new placemats for my dining room and found these great little houndstooth printed mats at Pier 1 the other day.  Aren't they cute?
