I must confess… I’m not one to stick to a plan. I’m hopeless, terrible at sticking to a script, a map, instructions or in the case of our home a design plan.The initial interior design concept was to keep everything simple. Black and white with shades of grey and wooden accents. Then the pink and white Fornica kitchen cabinet happened…. then my compulsive hoarding and collecting of all things kitchen related happened. Mismatch spoons, floral plates and all the vintage, kitchen linen my heart desires.Then my plant collection…. Needless to say my kitchen is more country fair than Country Road.
So when I was online, I browsed through my favourite online store Superbalist.com and came across some great wall art which I couldn’t resist! It was really difficult to choose, but I opted for three prints. One of Queen Elizabeth and the other of Nelson Mandela from HIPSTORY and then a third from Elisabeth Fredrickssen , that reminds us that it’s o.k to be regular. I just love the prints form HIPSTORY , they portray world icons as hipsters as a form of social commentary. It’s funny and colourful, two qualities I hold dear to my heart!I also bought a really cool standing planter from Swagger Products for one of my tiny succulant, just more reason to add to my plant collection.
The idea with our little kitchen is to still add some more shelves and paint the workbenches black, but for now this is what we have and I’m happy with how it’s coming along.Our little home in District Six is truly a labour of love. We bought it as a very tiny, dirty little empty shell , but it’s slowly turning into what we want out of a home! Hopefully I will be able to share some more pictures of the rest of our home with you.
