Tamara's House Tour
I’m so enjoying putting together house tours for Apartment Therapy. For me there’s nothing better than having a snoop through a gorgeous home full of personality. My latest house tour features the charming home of Tamara and her family. Full of quirks and vintage collections, Tamara’s home is just lovely.

May 3, 2016

Zesty lemon curd
I’ve never tried to make lemon curd before because I presumed it would be complicated. Well, it turns out that it is incredibly simple to make! We have a lemon tree in our garden so I can see this becoming a firm favourite when having guests over.

All you need is four ingredients and within an hour you’ll be rewarded with a tasty citrusy spread. Hop down for my recipe…

Banana yellows
I’m loving these bright, bold yellows and fun banana graphics. Perfect for adding a splash of fun and instant cheer. Move on over pineapples, it’s time for bananas to shine! Happy long weekend friends!

Work & Co

April 28, 2016

Work & Co, Cape Town
Last week I spent a few days at Work & Co which is Cape Town’s newest co-working space. Situated at the end of Bree Street near the foreshore, Work & Co takes up two upper floors of Touchstone House and has the most amazing 360 degree views of the city.

The fabulous interior was designed by top local interior designer, Andrea Graff, and it really impresses. Industrial fixtures combined with striking wallpapers, fantastic artworks and African inspired pieces create a warm and vibrant space. Fast internet and free coffee are obvious attractions as is the open-plan kitchen and plush lounge area. 

They have a variety of options and packages which you can view here. Choose to have either a shared or private office or simply opt for a hot desk and pop in often as you need. This is great option for freelancers and professionals visiting the city. And of course it’s also a good way to connect with other like-minded entrepreneurs.

I love the flexibility of working from home but I did find I was super productive at Work & Co… no cat, kitchen and house chores to distract me! I’m definitely considering joining them once a week.
