with spring supposedly just around the corner, (one would never have come to that conclusion, what with the rain and wind storms we’ve had in Cape Town recently) I’m delighted to say that the cherry trees in my neighborhood have also decided that warmer weather must definitely be coming soon since they are all blooming with the prettiest of blossoms! I have to say that a cherry tree in full bloom is pretty hard to beat on the gorgeous-scale. So I snipped a branch to cheer up my dining room and also to photograph alongside our new lights, over which I’ve been utterly obsessing! Created by the talented Jacques Cronje of Timber Design, a local designer with a simple Scandi-style, the pendants are made of birch plywood and lend a classic yet contemporary edge to our downstairs space. I adventurously decided to mix things up by choosing multiple sizes and styles from his Minima range to hang above our Weylandts kiaat dining room table. Since the space is open plan, we followed through with the Ellipse style in the lounge and the Minima Coupe in the TV lounge. The styles are quite different from each other, but work together to create a modern and sophisticated lighting theme. Jacques’ Timber Design philosophy resonates with my own personal interior style and his unique designs seemed the perfect choice when it came to deciding on the lighting for our home – practical, tactile and natural.
