laurence brick is a genius!

Hierdie is 'n "sneak peak" met my selfoon(!) van die stalletjie wat kreatiewe konsultant Laurence Brick vir Plascon by Decorex Kaapstad gedoen het.

"Urbanites are getting grounded as they bring the rural and the rustic home to their hard-edged city dwellings. Weaving together this fusion of country and city the Laurence Brick Creative Direction team brings their visionary fabrics and trends installation ‘Contemporary Country' to the show. ‘Contemporary Country' proves that there's nothing backwards about the platteland/farmstyle aesthetic. Leaving no room for the beige and the bland, highly textured fabrics with touch-me knitted upholstery, raw linen, natural wood and punches of acid yellow come together against a backdrop of the latest in wallpaper." - Decorex website

Ek LOVE die platteland of "farmstyle aesthetic"! C x

beril cicek

Magda de Lange het hierdie Turkse ontwerper aan my bekend gestel op facebook (Craft Share (crochet/knit/sew). Beril Cicek fokus op handegemaakte (jippee!) produkte in natuurlike materiaal (soos 100% wol). Ek kan aan 'n paar goed dink om in die oulike gebreide 'kassies' te pak ...

slight obsession

Of dit nou gebrei of gehekel is, ek is effe obsessief oor komberse op die oomblik. Hierdie ene kom uit die vorige Elle Decoration (Suid-Afrikaanse weergawe). C x

i LOVE this

Juis omdat ek nooit (nooit?) so 'n bonkige gebreide lekker snoesige kombers sal hê nie.

yarn bombing

Partykeer werk goed net perfek uit ...

Kyk na die gehekelde sirkel wat perfek pas op die ronding van die stoel ...

En hoe brei en hekel saamsmelt ...
