Modern countryside home with minimal elements that articulate the perfect space. In this secluded home overlooking the mountains, classic meets modern interiors with a touch of Africa became the theme. Around every corner in this home, mismatched wood elements in both the modern and antique styles are proudly displayed, soft furnishings add character, and baskets are stocked in abundance for storing items and keeping the house tidy. Warm tones, neutral hues, and natural materials maintain the theme of a natural environment.
West Coast Villa
Traditional and contemporary elements blend in this white-washed West Coast home. A large amount of natural light pours into the home. Relax in this open, airy oasis. All sides of the house have large windows and doors that open towards the outdoors, allowing you to feel a part of nature. Just a few coastal shrubs separate this villa from the beach. This gorgeous villa was designed with barefoot luxury in mind.
I really enjoyed working with this client. This was a complete home renovation project, and all of us were very pleased with the outcome. Our inspiration for this project was farmhouse meets modern - blending country elements with modern touches. The Oak cabinetry for the kitchen and vanities in the bathrooms was chosen for their versatility and durability, creating a warm and cozy addition to the concrete floors. Each bathroom features handmade tiles, along with high-quality hardware finishes.
Their meticulous attention to detail and importance of details was what I enjoyed most about working with my client. This home went from wow to extraordinary through features like architraves, custom fixtures, handmade tiles, and wallpaper. There is an overall well-thought-out design concept in this home as well as attention to detail.

Wabi-sabi essentially means finding beauty in imperfection, and this was the inspiration behind the project. The concept was designed for those who appreciate authenticity, finding value in lovingly weathered, and lived-in spaces. In addition to promoting tranquility and peace, simplicity is used to enhance the design style. Essentially, wabi-sabi adopters seek harmony and authenticity in imperfection.

The night owl by nature will appreciate the all-encompassing darkness of this bold, dramatic, and modern open-plan space. A striking framed mural adorns the feature wall above the fireplace. It has an old-world glamour filled with taupe, black, and charcoal shades with shining brass accents to contrast with moody textures and a contemporary selection of furnishings.

Inspired by the majestic beauty of rhinos, we took a walk on the wild side. In this design, we celebrate the bold and magnificent statuesque creatures we all hold so dearly. Choosing finishes and textures to layer and artfully create this space was inspired by their unique skin texture and striking features. A grey and charcoal color scheme was used, as well as natural finishes such as wood and concrete.

The movement of the unbridled steeds, gliding effortlessly through hills and valleys inspired the design of this space. An oversize wall-to-wall mural injecting equine beauty and emotion made a great focal point for the space as a true conversation piece. Throughout the rest of the room, we layered solid and muted colours.

An unmistakable ode to femininity inspired the design behind this studio. A soft pink color palette was crucial to the design. The pale pink wall provides an almost neutral and warm backdrop to the space while also running a common thread through the blush shades in the furniture, artwork, and throw pillows, all tied together and elevated by touches of copper and luxurious trims. It’s a soothing and soft fusion that feels warm and approachable.

In recent years, people have been seeking new ways to get closer to nature through nature-inspired designs, and when designing this space, we were inspired by the woodland aesthetic of the area. This space was brought to life by raw arboreal and organic materials mixed with luxurious velvets in moss hues and a fresh woodland mural - bridging the indoors and outdoors.
Nothing excites me more than getting involved in a project at the building stage, as this gives me the chance to conceptualize the entire home with the client. The builders with whom I work invited me to consult on fixtures and fittings for their private home. By incorporating herringbone wood floors, select Moroccan tiled areas, charcoal shaker cabinetry, wainscoting, and black steel windows and doors, we created a modern country home. We are so pleased with how this home turned out.
My fascination with residential interiors began here. We bought this small fixer-upper townhouse out of university and rented it out for a few years before renovating and moving in. In this property, we had to DIY most of the finishes after we stripped it down to an empty shell. Living in this tiny well-kept home for four years was like living in a cocoon, and we enjoyed every moment of it.
