Hello

My decor ideas,inspirations and projects.

Muffins and heartbeats

It started on a high, but quickly dipped when doors started closing and dreams seemed further and further from reach. I guess that’s why it has been a while since I wrote. It’s time to dust off that keyboard. It hurts when set plans become fleeting thoughts. See I had forgotten, even if it was…

Sunny decor

What a March it has been for us in Nairobi. The soaring heat has us scouring beauty shops for heat-resistant make up and knowing firsthand the difference between an office with an air conditioner and one without. Our limits have truly been tested with the Kenyan summer being given a whole new meaning. Unlike Europe…

Decor made easier

21st century… boy am I glad I dwell in this age; So much to discover and such thrilling décor possibilities! I love how creative we are getting. Seeing various decor styles be re-incarnated and interpreted in the freshest and most 21st century appropriate ways is such a joy. Gone are the days where a vase…

SETTING UP A HOME OFFICE

Just because you have no designated office that you pay rent for every month does not mean you do not give your business the seriousness it deserves. If you have a business that you operate from home, then you owe it to yourself to set up a home office. It is the perfect resolution that…

Starting out in business

According to wikipedia Entrepreneurship has been defined as the “…capacity and willingness to develop, organize and manage a business venture along with any of its risks in order to make a profit.”I remember when I decided to embark on my entrepreneurship journey.I was willing to develop, born ready to organize and oh so anxious to…

Of typwriters, red ants and 4c hair.

Let me take you on a trip down memory lane with a few funny stories. You know how after high school everyone does computer studies and french at Alliance Francais? Oui? Well I did that too. But my mom decided my typing skills were wanting…grab some popcorn and tissue if you are the laugh till…

For the love of books

I find it weird reading a book in soft copy.It feels like am Judas,committing a betrayal of some sort.For a purist of the printed book,reading from a kindle has no comparison to the feeling of curling up in your favorite nook,book in hand and flipping through each page.Growing up surrounded by books and listening to…

Waiting in line…

Is it just me? Do you ever hear a song or read a title of a book or poem and find yourself thinking long and hard? More often than not I take it at face value and not as it was intended to be interpreted.You too?Well,join the line then. Remember in the 90s when the…

craft necessities.

I like what i do. Making decor concepts a reality is such a joy.But it is not an easy feat I assure you. What you see on Rehab addict or Cousins on call is not what happens here in Kenya. We do not have  stores where i can walk in and find a replica of…

5 going on 25

Before,when i wrote for myself,when my posts were private and were about anything and everything,i wrote this.I forgot the password to that account so am re-writing it again :-). It has nothing to do with interior decor but in the words of Emeli Sande…”If no one ever hears it,how we gonna learn your song?so come on…

THE BLACK TREE EVENT

By profession I am an interior decorator. Over time and somewhat by accident I have shifted from mainstream interior decor for homes to retail decor and visual merchandising for retail outlets, hotels and malls. With retail decor, I say by accident because a friend suggested to a friend that he has a friend who is…

Suspended….breaking the mould

Like any 21st century twenty something, I pass time by mostly surfing the internet and like any creative out there, the ultimate goal is to think outside the box and come up with something that makes your peers go “well in, well in”. A few months ago, I was on Pinterest looking for yet another…
