south africa inspiration

I got back from my holiday in South Africa last week. As well as having an amazing time seeing all the sights around cape town and Kosi bay on the north east coast to safari at Ngala and Sabi sands, I also got so much inspiration from all the fantastic artists and designers in cape town. 
Here are some of my favourite photos....

This little cafe come shop in Simons town used squares of printed fabric to cover the wall.

I think these buttons on string are a great camouflage for hiding odd and ends in this shelving unit.   

my favourite.....bird silhouettes 

I love this idea of turning an old suitcase into chair

This shop next to the old biscuit mill specialised in recycling old things into interesting bit of furniture

Its funny where you start to spot pattern and colour when your looking for it....


fruit four ways made by Luan and Atlantic Suites

I love these tea cup designs for cushions covers by mingo lamberti. My pictures don't do them justice so check out the website

When I visited one of the cute little boutique shops in cape town I found this designer who loves to print, just like me!  Her blog is and etsy shop
