Elle Decoration SA

hello friends! I’ve been a bit busy lately with this lovely course and it’s also school holidays, so not too much time to read my favourite magazines. When I did have a few spare minutes to catch up on my dearest mags, the June/July issue from Elle Decoration SA really grabbed my attention. The art of slow living and the back to basics concept truly resonated with me. Life can at times go at such a frenetic pace that we lose the ability to slow down and take in the beauty around us. I photographed several features from the issue and gave them some instagram love…

This Shinda Chair, made of recycled car tyres by Jeanette Gibson, is a beauty… so delicate but with purpose. And Isabella of Natural Applications uses macramé, crochet and knitting to revive the art of fibre craft and tell a story…

The inimitable Jackie Burger, one of South Africa’s style icons and the fabulous editor of Elle SA, has a healing hideaway in the Karoo to where she can retreat for some quiet time. The catharsis of this pleasantly slow & rustically rustig part of our beautiful country is as incomparable as Jackie herself..

Elle Decoration finds inspiration from the colours of the earth and the quiet beauty of the Karoo

The hot pink accents from this home in Amsterdam made me smile…

A favourite home in the issue is one in Sweden with its soothing palette of bare white, natural accents of wood and a variety of greens…
