Thanks for visiting! I started this blog 4 years ago because I truly believe that anyone can – and should! – have a beautiful home. I share my life and an always-being-renovated farmhouse with my amazing husband, 3 boys and 2 wild-ish dogs in the picturesque Franschhoek valley. I started blogging as a creative outlet while being an interior designer. I know, even while designing I still felt like I needed to express my unique self! When I’m not making stuff, cooking, blogging and running after my kids and/or dogs, I am a contributing writer for various other publications. Oh, and I’ve also written a book and done a TV show. What can I say – I have a full, busy and extraordinary life!
This blog is about everything HOME – how you live in it and how you make it yours. I want to inspire and empower you to create your ultimate home, one where you get nourishment not only for your body but also for your soul. I have collaborated with various people in putting this blog together – this is by no means a one-woman enterprise! – and that is what keeps it fresh and exciting.
Ultimately a blog is for the readers, for YOU. So I really hope you love what I do here as much as I do and I appreciate all your support. I’d love to hear what else you would like to see here, so please don’t be shy! And if you think that you can contribute in any way, please don’t hesitate to contact me. I always love to explore new ideas and collaborations!

Anélle is a mom of two who’s official job is that of Jewellery Lady, an exclusive collection of sterling silver jewellery imported from Mexico. But, in her spare time, she loves to bake, upcycle and find new ways of bringing colour into her life and home.
My favourite colour is “colourful”! Things I love most in my kitchen are my Kenwood Chef mixer, my new red SMEG oven and… my silicone spatula!
