Good morning guys. Welcome to a new week. How was everyone’s weekend? Am I correct in saying that the States had a long weekend? Those are always the best. We celebrated Spring day and the start of sunny days and outdoor living this weekend. Here in South-Africa 1 September is Spring day. I am still nowhere near complete with the house redesign, but this weekend I decided to do a fun project that is sure to ad a brigh spark to everyday.

Last week I spent some time pulling together inspiration and made a moodboard to give me a bit of guidance on my home studio design. I work from home and as a designer, I feel it is important that I have a fun, inspiring workspace. It needs to be super organised so that I don’t miss any deadlines or loose any important items, but it should also have a relaxed, friendly atmosphere. This is what I came up with.

I found this lovely Westelm bedroom (in the centre of the moodboard) online a while back and I have kept it in the back of my mind. On Friday something just clicked and I realised that this is a look I would love for my studio. I decided to spend some time this weekend to implement one of my creative ideas for this space. The room is in our house but has no built in cupboards. In our previous place I was lucky enough to have tons of storage, which means that I have managed to amass loads of things, necessary and otherwise. I have been trying to clear out the rubbish, but most of it has to stay, so I needed storage space. I inherited a few, shabby old pine cupboards and I decided to convert the one small hanging closet into a gorgeous storage cabinet. I am in love with coral, so I decided to go all out with a bright shade.


This is what I came up with. What do you think? It was great to spend Spring day doing such a fun project, but it could be equally nice for you guys going into Autumn to ad a bright, fun piece to an area. It might just be what you need to keep the winter blues at bay and an eternal spring in your heart.

Have a lovely, bright and happy Monday.
