colour crave – lemon yellow


with the summer sun shining brightly in Cape Town and a holiday atmosphere in the air, I thought I’d end the week with a Colour Crave which is all about lemon yellow against a monochromatic background of black and white. A fun and sassy bikini illustration by Garance Doré maybe…


Get inspired by Ez’s vibrant lemony post over on Creature Comforts and try squeezing up some home made zingy lemonade…


or add a pop of lemon to your wardrobe with a yellow bag


how about adding a bright yellow accent to an all black & white kids interior like this one, styled by Charlotte Love? Or perhaps a perfect lemon yellow pouch by Zana to hold your make-up?


have a bright and cheerful day!

love local – zana


We haven’t had a Love Local column for a little while, so I thought I’d treat you to some colourful, bold designs from Zana, a fun creative brand from Cape Town. If Zana were a person, she would definitely not be sitting in the kitchen at parties – this brightly bold brand emerged from a love for textiles, colour and pattern; with a splash of typography and a pinch of fun thrown in for good measure. I think I might have to get one of these cushions …


Zana has a new studio in Woodstock where some of the screen printing, sewing, packaging, and making takes place. Pop over to Lanalou Style for a lovely studio tour to see where the magic happens. Zana products are available online or at selected shops – I recently bought this cool pouch from the new pop-up shop, Fabricate. However, if you’re not local …  never fear, they can ship their gorgeous goodies to you, wherever you may be in the world! Just click over to their Etsy site to find out more.



don’t you just love it when things are kept simple?
