Natalie Thiart is a stylist from Cape Town who began her career as a photographer but seems to have found styling spaces more gratifying: "Through my eyes I see the perfect occupation. One filled by exciting spaces, places and passionate creators of all species. After eight years I am more excited than I was when I first started. I am blessed to be in this position." Natalie certainly has a knack for styling. And lordie don't I wish I was in the same perfect occupation.
Australian architect Fiona Winzar's buildings feel like they should always have been there. This boutique design practice places great emphasis on sustainable solutions that are just right for the site. She is a dream weaver. Her clients' needs are nurtured and developed, nourished until a simple yet stunning design solution is achieved. Enough of the flowery text, Winzar's spaces are simply beautiful.
Nathalie Vingot Mei is an interior designer from la belle Provence who wrote us recently to say she's a fan of the blog....and now I'm a fan of her work. Her work has been featured in Art et décoration, Marie Claire Maison and Côté sud. One word - SERENITY. Inviting spaces bathed in white and creams, with pale accent colours and lots of textures in fabrics, all with a very raw quality. C'est merveilleux et je suis vraiment contente qu'elle nous a envoyé un courriel. :)
Kyle Timothy Blood is the design force behind Kyle Timothy Home - obviously. But what is also obvious is his understanding of casual elegance and family friendly spaces. These are bright airy and light rooms that are just so appealing that you want to snuggle in that chair or whip up a cake in that kitchen. Custom doesn't mean design for the sake of design but truly understanding a client's needs.
