is a freelance writer based in Cape Town. Serendipitously, at the time of compiling the Renoinnovation Solutions section (page 73) she and her husband were about to embark on a makeover of their 1930s home. If you could change anything in your home, what would it be? Everything! This renovation has been two years in the planning. Best renovation tip? Get intimate with Pinterest; download the app and pin away. Your boards are a great reference for your architect or contractor. Can’t leave home without? My Myciti Bus card. I love engaging with the city and its people on my daily commute to my shared office space. It really makes you see the area in a whole new light and I save immensely on petrol. Favourite local/international designer? Internationally I love the Haas Brother’s phantasmagorical and playful furnishings, precisely because they are so out there and imaginative. Locally there are just too many to name! Local artists you love? I love the humour in Michael Taylor’s work, in fact my mother and sister-in-law, bought us one of his pieces as a wedding present, which we aim to use as a starting point when decorating our new home. I also love Mary Sibande’s narrative of Sophie, the domestic worker; the relationship between caretaker/housekeepers and their employers is a subject that fascinates me. Dream holiday destination? It’s a toss up between Marrakech and New Orleans.
