inspirational space

I am always looking for ways to make our little home feel bigger. It’s impossible to think clearly and function properly when surrounded by clutter.

This Christmas my kiddos were wonderfully spoilt and while we’re thrilled with our new toys, we’re faced with the challenge of finding a place for everything.

Big clear out time. We donated some stuff and dropped off a few bags at the secondhand kids clothing/toys store where my sister works – Tantrum on Main Road Kenilworth. It’s a real treat if you are looking for an affordable way to clothe your children in cute, international brands while passing on your own children’s (good quality) old clothes. It’s been a real life saver for me over the last couple of years.

This family space, discovered on The Design Files has inspired me this week. Uncluttered, light, airy and still warm enough to be called a home.

Good to see how it’s possible to have kids but not a lounge knee-deep in toys and plastic furniture 🙂

There’s nothing more exciting when you come across a designer that makes every piece like it was meant for you. This is how I feel about Jane Sews. Locally designed and crafted, all her dresses, tops, shoes and bags are timeless, simple and sophisticated. Perfect, really. Amy Venter, the designer behind Jane Sews, has this to say about her brand…

“I have always been inspired by nature’s authenticity. My design and making hope to reflect this same spirit; every design element is carefully considered and close attention is paid to fine construction and finish. With Jane Sews I sought out to create uplifted staples and timeless pieces that are suitable for all seasons. The small run collections are crafted from high quality natural fabrics and are both functional and easy to wear. Linking arms with other local makers has enabled Jane Sews to be part of building into community. It has also allowed me the privilege of sharing this creative journey with other tradesmen while ensuring the integrity of the finished product. This is a story sewn by honest hands speaking to a simpler way of living. My greatest wish would be that your Jane Sews piece finds a treasured place in your wardrobe.”

My greatest wish is that I could have every single piece 🙂
