Today marks a very special day for me, in that it was exactly a year ago today that I left permanent employment to follow my dream as a designer.  It has been a rollercoaster year with many lessons learnt and steep learning curves, but I would not change it for the world!

The house I would like to show you today really warms my heart as it belongs to one of my best friends.  I take it as a compliment if a friend hires you, as they would be the most honest if you really did not know what you were doing… especially this friend!

The brief was simple: The cats destroyed our furniture, a lot was hand-me downs,  make it work and make it our own 🙂

As can be seen in the before pics, everything was covered with a throw (thank you cats) and it was quite dark and full inside:

Wanting a modern eclectic look, this was our inspiration pic:


And this is what we achieved:


Especially proud of that gallery wall I installed myself.  I will show you how in a coming post!


Even the one ginger cat Pumpky was having a blast…



  1. Very well done! Yet again a master piece! I love how you use plants in all your designs (well positioned and well suited type of plant for the space).
