In my Instagram you might have seen that the hashtags #Movethatbus #RentalHeaven and #Getridofuglytiles is still going strong. We have moved into our new rental house that luckily feels more like our own home then any of our previous houses. This time around we had the chance to decide on most of the finishes. Finishes that, to me make a big difference in how I feel about my home. Where rental houses often make it necessary to turn a blind eye towards ugly tiles, a hideous kitchen or an unidentifiable color on the wall, this house is the best one yet! A wooden floor (yeah!), a marble counter top (hurray!, grey simple kitchen cabinets and walls on which we can choose our on color (yessss!) make me so happy! For the first time, this is a place that I want to show off and trust me, I will!
We are strong believers of celebrating life as much as possible. So when the day came the team was finally complete again since ages (which is a rare occasion as Roos is located in Cape Town) we decided to go all out and celebrate it with a team shoot. And so the Live Loud Girl team got in front of the camera.
Am I excited? Probably the understatement of the year! I am beaming with happiness to have the opportunity to completely renovate our new rental home . Thank you very much new landlord.
As we close one door and will be openening another, I will be sharing the journey of the renovations and move into our new home with you on the blog and Instagram
As interior stylists, we face many styling related challenges which vary from order lead times to finding the perfect accessory and anything in between.
Yet in our latest project, a summer house with 4 spaces to be styled by us, we came across a real challenge. We were asked to create a room for an 11 year old boy. The real challenge lies not in the lack of inspiration but more in the fact that it needs to appeal to a teenager and remain enjoyable for the coming years.
