Hi! I am Olivia and I love all things tastefully chic – but fun ! Welcome to my world of ideas and products to inspire, delight and beautify.
I am a qualified chartered accountant and interior designer. I grew up on a farm in Swellendam and now love life in Greenpoint, Capetown, South Africa.
Sourcing and Consultations
As an interior designer, I am passionate about creating spaces that are not only warm, inviting and beautiful, but also provide a practical and exclusive fit for my client. I would love to consult with you on any home or office space requiring a trained creative eye. (Consultations are charged at R650 per hour.)
It can be difficult to find the ideal carpet or curtain to complement an established aesthetic. We can make the selection process easier by navigating you through a broad range of stunning fabrics and rugs from Hertex, St Leger & Viney, Mavromac and U&G Fabrics supplied to you at excellent prices. If you buy the fabric from me – I will help you choose for free! This service can be done over a distance, I can courier you fabric samples to wherever you are!
We offer a range of ready-made curtains to choose from or can assist with custom-made curtains to fit any dimension. No bedroom is complete without an elegantly upholstered headboard and we will gladly assist with both the design and manufacture according to your specifications.
I relish the challenge of finding any décor element required to create a flawless look. If you have a specific item in mind, but can’t find it anywhere please send me a picture of the item and the room as well an estimate of your budget and I will gladly source the item for you. If the item is bought from an outside supplier, a sourcing fee of 15% applies. If it is bought from me, the sourcing is complimentary!
We offer a range of thoughtfully curated homeware. These items are reliably sourced and can be purchased from the comfort of your own home by ordering online. A flat delivery fee of R50 applies for delivery anywhere is SA. Free delivery for orders over R1500.
If you would like to view any of our exquisite homeware you are welcome to visit our showroom by appointment, in Greenpoint. I would love to meet you and have some champagne with you while you shop.
