I live (very comfortably) in a farm style house just outside Pretoria, South Africa, with my husband, our 2 sons Sebastian (12 years old) and Benjamin (10 years old), 5 dogs (Chloe, Billy, Lilly, Boston and Milo) and Cat.

Our home has been through many transformations during the past 8 years we’ve lived here. You can ask my friends.

The look I wanted to go for this time is CALM and is my version of “grown-up” decor.

Jamie Drake, brilliant American decorator (also known in the USA as the ‘king of color’) described this look as “living in a bowl of oats”.

Have a lovely weekend!

I know I will.

PS I painted my WHOLE house (walls, doors and ceiling) in Plascon’s Light Stone NEU06, in the Cashmere quality.
