From sophisticated soiree to lavish luncheon, majestic wedding to intimate celebration South African events designer Otto de Jager and his team at Otto de Jager Events create magic, transforming empty spaces into temporary wonderlands but it’s deJager’s more permanent creations that have caught my eye. I’ve chosen just two of his interior designs (the second is his own home) to share. Both rich with natural finds, aged timbers and a sense of theatre. After all he is in the business of staging extravagant events.
I have fallen in love with this London location home mostly due to the sheer size of the kitchen (maximum envy here!) but also because of the eclectic vibe throughout. Some bold accent colours, a touch of black, some patterns in a funky sofa and wallpaper…. Via 1st Option Locations.
My friend Roseline sent me a message the other day that her friend’s mom passed away suddenly and her beautiful farmhouse in The Netherlands has been put up for sale. Built around 1910 on the border of the towns of Knegsel and Veldhoven, it has been renovated and rebuilt several times over the years yet still maintains a time-worn look and appears to have been given a bit of an ethnic facelift recently. This home is absolutely stunning and what a dream it would be to put my mark on such a space. Listing details can be found here.
TGIF friends!!! Despite it being only a 3-day work week for me it felt like 12 and I am ready for a bit of relaxation, going back to sleep after the 4:30 am feeding of the herd, and some gardening. And to get this party started, here is a beautiful, bright home in East London with lots of white, a really cool kitchen (assuming a large chunk of it is behind the white doors), and some eclectic vintage furniture and lighting. Available as a location home through 1st Option Locations.
