• So, with the reno in full swing, i’m obviously missioning and looking for affordable solutions to some of the decorating challenges that are presenting themselves. One area of our new home that i’m excited about is our indoor/outdoor patio. Currently it’s a hideous facebrick patio that is a sun trap and just fugly as hell but i can’t wait to transform it once it has a proper roof. Its the first home i’ve lived in with a proper, grown up patio with proper furniture and what will be ‘a look’. What i have in mind is a space that reflects the amazing green surrounds and view and for that, i am after reconditioned cane and Malawian chairs. I think that’s why the oh-so-Scandi looks of IKEA’s Stockholm Collection resonate with me – because though its designed in and inspired by Northern Europe, there’s a lot about our Southern African context that feels familiar…take a look…

    I like how the rustic-ness of the woven furniture is countered with the elegant grey patterning, linen and if you look below, a super comfy looking velvet upholstered couch in grey – keeping things contemporary

    Shew, that couch is a winner – i’m actually popping to Coricraft this weekend to check out their offerings- i like the look of this couch – just need to figure out whether its going to work in our living room
