Season’s Greetings From Design Monarchy

Season's Greetings From Design Monarchy

Wishing all our readers and friends a Merry Christmas and a joyous festive season!

We loved sharing our passion for design, décor and pretty things with you this past year!

Our studio will be closed for business from today, the 15th of December 2016, to Monday the 16th of January 2017. Keep your eyes peeled – next year brings BIG and exciting things!

Have a good one, guys and gals! Design Monarchy out!

Love, Rose & Marica  x x x

Hello 2016!

Design Monarchy New Year's Greeting

I tell you, it feels rather strange for my bum to be back in an office chair. We here at Design Monarchy had such a lovely, not to mention well-deserved, festive break. Last year was a busy, exciting and successful year for us and we said goodbye to 2015 in grateful celebration. Even though we are still shaking off some sweet holiday lethargy, I have this feeling that 2016 is going to be a GOOD year! In fact, I think we should keep some champagne on ice because…

“I’ve decided that 2016 will be an unbelievably-wonderful, astoundingly-phenomenal, staggeringly-stupendous year!”

The Design Tabloid has once again been entered into South African Blog Awards! We have registered for the Lifestyle as well as the Arts & Craft category which means we are up against some tough competition. We therefore need YOUR vote! No matter who you are or where you are from if you have enjoyed reading our blog as much as we have loved sharing our passion and knowledge with you – feel free to show your appreciation by voting and passing it on!

Now, the public vote phase will run from today, Tuesday 1 December 2015, until Monday 8th January 2016 at 23:59.

Voting is super easy – just click on the VOTE badge – you will be directed to the SA Blog Awards website where your vote for The Design Tabloid will automatically be entered. Yay!

VOTEAfter placing your vote, you will be sent a confirmation email, which you have to respond to in order to confirm your vote… and, I suppose, to ensure that you are not some programmed robot.

Also be warned – you can only vote for ONE blog per category. Should you decide to vote for another blog in the same category as The Design Tabloid (which is the Lifestyle / Arts & Crafts categories) you will lose the original vote, as your new vote will override the initial vote.

{So go on… vote for us! DO it, click the button!}

Network Love ❤

We had an absolute blast at last week’s Xtraordinary Women network meeting! Diana Rankin, of Perfume Power, and Liesl van der Hoven, of Fairy Caravan, gave us a “101” lesson on the basics of e-commerce. What an informative talk! Who knows, maybe Design Monarchy will have a little online shop in the not so distant future….
