Instagram is one of the fastest growing social media platforms and so if you’re looking to build your brand or get your name out there, you definitely need to jump on board. Apart from that, it’s obviously a great place to seek visual inspiration and make connections.

Last week I shared about two fun weekly Instagram tags and here are two more for you to take part in.

Join Katherine, Julia and Dee in their #fridayfaffingcompetition. Simply share a faffing image and add their tag and they’ll share their favourites on Sundays.

Another great tag is #floralfridaycompetition run by Emily Quinton. Emily is a fantastic photographer who has just released her first book, Maker Spaces. Yes, this is one of the books on my wish list! So upload a floral image today and add #floralfridaycompetition and @emilyquinton.

Enjoy the long weekend friends and make some time to be creative!

Painted geometric walls

April 23, 2015

Our home is definitely looking a bit shabby and desperately needing a lick of paint! So we do we go with a safe neutral colour or try something a bit braver and create more of a statement? I’ve spotted so many stunning geometric painted walls online and this really is an easy way to spruce up any interior. Just click through the slideshow above for inspiration and ideas.

I love this strong focal feature seen below. But if you find this look too bold, perhaps try painting just one wall to create an accent feature.

Africandy – local flavour

April 20, 2015

Africandy, Wale Street
Africandy was founded in 2012 and is a beautifully curated online store which showcases some of South Africa’s best furniture and lifestyle products. They’ve recently opened up a brick and mortar shop on busy Wale Street in Town. This tiny little store has a diverse selection of products from beautiful ceramics, leather handbags and luxury teas to art prints, lighting, quirky side tables and more. I’m mad about the Button stools by Church and the ceramics by The Detailsmith.

So be sure to pop in the next time you’re hunting for a special, locally designed gift.
