new showroom for intertex


Kreatiewe werk is opwindend en senu-tergend. Hierbo is net 'n paar fotos wat my inspireer het vir die dekor "look" van Intertex (my man se interieurmateriaalbesigheid) se nuwe vertoonlokaal in Kramerville, Johannesburg.

Gaan loer gerus op Intertex se facebook page om te sien hoe ons vorder. C x


laurence brick is a genius!

living etc magazine: my favourite

images found in mags while working

I love my work as a decorator. It's exciting to create spaces for clients that positively influence their lives; that give them a different experience and better quality of life.

So while working on a dream project today (a modern, minimalistic home) I found these images. Quite the opposite of what I was looking for (House & Leisure, Living Etc and Molly Makes).
