Elle Decoration South African style

Posted on Thu, 19 Jun 2008 by KiM

I LOVE shelter magazines, and I realized last night that we’ve never plugged Elle Decoration SA’s blog before. I adore Elle Decoration (British and French versions) and would love to get my hands on a copy of a South African version. They showcase fabulous eclectic homes and I found the following photos of such homes on their blog, which, what do you know, is also fabulous (and co-written by Heather Moore of Skinny Laminx).

Hi, do you happen to know the manufacturer on the woven floor lamp and pendant? At least, I assume they’re from the same manufacturer since they appear so similar.

it seems that Elle deco is good in all versions, I love the Argentinean one but it just has 3 o 4 issues per year.South African edition luckily we can see in that blog.


OOH there’s that same mirror’ed (?) piece! I noticed it months ago in a room that was photographed by Jen Fong. Any idea where to find it??

Thanks for the always amazing posts!

how do y’all do it?? you constantly feel my computer w/ inspiration…thanks so much.

So nice to see our blog on your fabulous site – thanks a lot for the substantial mention!

I can try to answer a couple of your readers’ questions while I’m here:

The woven lamp is from a store in Cape Town called LIM (lim.co.za), and I believe the mirrored piece on the wall is by Cape Town designer, Vivienne Barrett.

Thanks again,
Heather (Elle Deco / Skinny laMinx)

Thanks Heather!!
