Our Mountain Adventure

This past weekend we escaped the busy city life to the tranquil, secluded Ingeli Mountains, outside Kokstad, Kwa-zulu Natal. What a beautifully quiet and restful weekend! There is no form of luxury what so ever, one has to fire up the old donkey boiler in order have a hot shower – it was great! Being in nature honestly replenishes and invigorates the soul. A weekend like this makes one realise that we need to keep things simple and just be grateful for what we have and how we live.
Have an awesome week all!

Outside Living

Summer is just about upon us.. I don’t know about you but I am definitely feeling the healthy, happy vibes. Now that winter is far behind us I am looking at “re-vamping” our patio area, again! I just love some of these outdoor entertainment and relax areas, especially some of the outdoor showers.
Hope this is a little source of inspiration for all you outdoor lovers looking for a few ideas to spruce up your outside spaces.
Enjoy! Have an awesome week all!

A True Bush Safari

One of my favourite and inspirational South African design teams is the well known Cecile and Boyds. They have been the ones responsible for the magnificent decor concepts of all 10 Singita Lodges. Singita Game Reserves have recently launched the new “mobile tented camp” in Singita Explore Camp, Grumeti Reserves, Tanzania. And of course, the finished product is breathtakingly remarkable. The source of inspiration for this unique project was derived from the Land Rover – as they say ” it’s practical and hardy, a workhorse – and they drew on the materials in the car, such as leather, wood, steel and rubber”.
