Sunshine Lemons

By Marica

I was browsing through Etsy searching for some Easter inspiration when I stumbled upon these adorable digital designs by Sunshine Lemons (adorable name too)! The brainchild of Louise Sanders, Sunshine Lemons specializes in digital scrapbooking paper sets and party printables that range anything from labels, gift tags and greeting cards, to cake toppers, coaster designs and paper bunting (you just need a little imagination).

Super pretty Shabby Chic bunting printables! This set can be purchased through the Sunshine Lemons' Etsy shop.

This is an excellent resource if you are one of those crafty DIY humans. Furthermore, the extreme cuteness-factor in Louise’s designs makes for perfect kids party decorations and invites.

Another exciting little fact about Sunshine Lemons – she’s from Durban. And you know how I LOVE to find new South African creatives – especially on Etsy!

Décor Diva: How To Snuggle Up This Winter

10 Essentials for a lazy winter’s evening…

At the moment in time, we are going through our winter season here in SA.  Having said that, in Cape Town we are experiencing the most gorgeous warm winter days, when it should actually be grey, wet and cold days (much like it was up until about 10 days ago).

BUT – I am not fooled.  Those cold, wet and grey days are going to be back.  And when it does, I hope you have that the 10 Décor/Lifestyle essential below will be found in your living room.

1.   Comfortable sofa to stretch out on. OR that easy chair in antique leather that shouts out “sink into me”. This comfy sofa is from Klooftique.

2.   Ottoman or footstool, onto which to lift up your feet. Ottoman from JVB.

3.   Scatter cushion in warm tones filled with part goose down inners – to further ‘sink’ into. Scatter cushions from Cushion Snob.

4.   Warm winter throw blanket. Beautiful fluffy throw from Loads of Living.

5.   Fireplace with the real thing going OR heater if no fireplace. Image via Pinterest

6.   A side lamp or standing lamp- both for the ambient effect / reading. GORGEOUS brass Lab Light from Anatomy Design.

7.   A good sized TV. Image via Pinterest

8.   Slippers. These funky sheepskin beauties are from Sheepskin Slippers via Etsy. Love the colours!

9.   For the ‘I don’t watch TV’ people – a good book or magazine. Image via Pinterest

10.   A hot toddy or cuppa hot chocoffie. Stunning translucent ceramic mugs from John Newdigate Ceramics.

You now have the essentials for a toasty winter’s evening at home.  Catch up with you again soon.

Colour-Coded Inspiration: Orange

By Marica

About.com has excellent descriptions of colour and the feelings and emotion specific colours invokes. This is what they had to say about Orange (I find it quite accurate):

“Orange is vibrant, flamboyant & energetic. It denotes energy, warmth, and the sun. But orange has a bit less intensity or aggression than red, calmed by the cheerfulness of yellow. As a warm color orange is a stimulant — stimulating the emotions and even the appetite. Orange can be found in nature in the changing leaves of fall, the setting sun, and the skin and meat of citrus fruit. It represents the changing seasons so in that sense it is a color on the edge, the color of change between the heat of summer and the cool of winter. Because orange is also a citrus color, it can conjure up thoughts of vitamin C and good health.”

A good colour to pair with orange is a nice cooling blue, like this turquoise-y blue we used below. Now the orange really pops. It can be really refreshing, don’t be afraid to use it. Here is some Orange beauties to inspire you…
