the design indaba is over…now what…?

The Design Indaba Expo is over! What an amazing, exhilarating and inspiring few days. Thanks to all my friends and family for all your support over the last few weeks building up to this, it really was worth all the hard work and effort. And thanks to everyone who managed to come past and say hi, it was so lovely to finally meet so many of you and put some faces to names.

For those of you who didn’t get a chance to pop in here’s a pic of the handmade by me stand : ) I miss it already!!

And I (or rather my blue origami birds lampshade) was lucky enough to make the cut for a design indaba special published in the Rapport Mytyd section this last weekend…here’s what stylist Marian Ward thought stood out for her…

All my lampshades are made to order in any of my designs and a variety of shades. Email me for more details or discuss any ideas you might have, I am happy to help.

wall flowers…

I am so delighted to let you know that 2 of my lovely wallpapers have been featured in a beautiful and aptly titled “Wall flowers” feature in the latest issue of Garden & Home. Both the Spring Has Sprung, Peach Floral wallpaper and the Birdy Num Num in Purple Blue wallpaper have been listed amongst the “made to measure” section. If you’re in the mood for romance this season nothing says commitment quite like wallpaper : )

But for those of you looking for something a little less permanent I have found a new supplier as an alternative,  who offer fully removeable self adhesive wallpaper which is uses PVC-free paper, and is durable and eco-friendly.

See more detailed pics of my 2 wallpapers below…both are available from my new Handmade By Me online shop.
