Investing in Art: Swain Hoogervorst

Investing in Art: Swain Hoogervorst

A few years ago, I decided that I wanted to start collecting as much art as I could afford by young artists I believe in, and talented people I know. Obviously I could never afford works by any of the more famous names, or the artists with the sold-out shows. But the guys who are young, who […]

Giveaway: WIN a R1500 voucher from Volpes Linen

I have to admit that for me, one of the very best things about travelling, is coming home. Home is where your cats wake you up at 5am, where your bathroom has full-sized bottles of your shampoo and conditioner, where you have more than 3 pairs of shoes, where you can cook in your own […]

I was really excited when they asked if they could come over and chat about our tiny home, since I’m a big fan of their The Way of Us content.

It’s Looking A Lot Like Christmas

There’s nothing like the sound of corks popping to get me into a festive mood. I’ve heard that it’s been scientifically proven that the sound of a popping champagne cork releases endorphins into your brain and if this is the case, I strongly feel that the “festive season” should be renamed the “endorphin season”. This […]

Courtyard Makeover

Courtyard Makeover

Our ground floor apartment is small, but one of the best things about it and what made us fall in love when we saw it, is the outside space that comes with it. Leading from our kitchen door is a long corridor and a courtyard a bit bigger than an average parking bay. In Cape Town terms, […]

Christmas Feasting: The Easy Way

Christmas Feasting: The Easy Way

This past weekend Keenan’s family were in town, and since we won’t be seeing them this Christmas (we’ll be in Melbourne with my family), we decided to have a very early Christmas lunch.  We also invited my favourite aunt and uncle, so we had a full house.

Making A Tiny Studio A Home

Making A Tiny Studio A Home

When Keenan and I unloaded the first of our boxes into our new, empty apartment back in February of this year, I think we were both had the same thought; “How are our lives going to fit into this tiny space together?” After the initial excitement of being given a bond, signing all the paperwork and […]

Livingroom Makeover with MRP Home

Livingroom Makeover with MRP Home

When Keenan and I first bought our little apartment in Woodstock, we were like “this place is tiny we are never going to be able to fit anything in here”. It’s only 65 square meters and it’s a studio, so it seemed like it was going to be a big challenge to create a space […]
