Well, I have been dreadful at updating my blog. So I thought in the spirit of improving my internet presence I would start again! Posts below….

The brief for this project was to update the living and dining room areas by introducing highlights of strong colour against a neutral backdrop of greys and creams.
New sofas from Jardan, beautiful rugs from Robyn Cosgrove and a great coffee table from Globe West were all purchased. We had trouble finding side chairs and tables that would fit the space exactly, so I designed two side chairs and side tables that we had made locally. There was no lighting above the island bench. I wanted to introduce a warm metallic to work with the deep terracotta reds we had selected for the chairs and cushions. Corporate Culture had the perfect fittings – two orient pendants from Lightyears, originally designed in 1963. The results are wonderful – a warm and inviting space that relaxes and invigorates.

Office fit out for Ergo
Posted by on 16th of March 2014

In the middle of last year I worked on an office fit out for Ergo, a media strategy company.
The brief was to provide a clean, workable space that allowed each person privacy as well as the ability to work together when the situation required.
I designed partitions that created a series of “rooms”, giving each person storage, a pinboard and a feeling of personal space.
A central table was designed to give the clients a space to meet and brainstorm as well as somewhere to have lunch!
Textured rugs from Armadillo and natural oak desks provide warmth in the space and the gorgeous, decorative lines of a NUB chair from Kezu adds a touch of sculptural whimsy….
