DESIGN WORK

Snapshots of my work as a designer - including behind-the-scenes, ideas, insights and work process. Enjoy!

EASY DOES IT

Sharing multifunctional and repurposed items, and especially easy hacks for parents. Only DIY if it's cheaper, easier, environmentally friendly, fun or all of the above.

GARDEN PROJECT

Our outside space is a slow work-in-progress, with the balcony looking better than the garden at the moment. I credit the astroturf and deco gravel; an easy but elegant fix for the old eyesore.

INTERIORS

Goldilocks, in constant search of the one that is just right.

PLANT LOVE

Household allergies prevents us getting a pet, conveniently I am a crazy plant lady deep in my heart of hearts.

FOOD & DRINKS

The food appreciation surpasses any culinary skills and effort by a good mile.

THE ART OF ABSTRACTION

A great little exercise in visual perception and editing; finding abstract beauty in a very figurative world.

PATTERNS & TEXTURES

Patterns and textures are integral parts of design, and finding a new and interesting one is a favourite pastime.
