DECOR & DIY, Life, Romancing the Home

Romancing the Home – A Design Bloggers Meet Up

I am so excited to be introducing you to these awesome South African bloggers/creatives/interior designers/interior stylists/entrepreneurs/wives/mothers… we all go by many names! We have decided to join up to share our takes on weekly themes. I thought that I would introduce you to everyone, so that you could go and have a sneak peak of what you could expect from these talented ladies!

Ruffles & RustRamona Afonso – Ruffles & Rust

Ramona is a wife, mom and career woman. She is also a fashion and interior designer, with a love for ruffles, rust and all things French Country. She is an accomplished interior designer and DIYer, whose stunning work has been featured in multiple magazines – including being placed solid second in Home/Tuis Magazine’s 2017 Fix it with Flair competition.

You can find Ramona hanging out on her gorgeous Instagram feed or her blog, Ruffles & Rust!

My Shabby ShackTalia Botha

Talia is another true creative, having been involved in creative and marketing positions since she was 18. She has done everything from sign making to marketing, from bar tending to running events through her career. Her latest occupations include cake baking & decorating (she has a Professional Masters Diploma in Sugar Art) and renovating and decorating her gorgeous home. Besides learning how to pave, rewire their home and hang wallpaper, Talia has created rustic cheese boards, trays and shelves and upcycled furniture, transforming it from Drab to Fab.

You can find Talia on Instagram, where she showcases her latest projects (including that divine Sugar Art) and she will be launching her blog soon!

Liz wears so many hats – Mom, Wife, Entrepreneur (as the owner of Zau Spa in Cullinan), foodie and lover of everything and anything pretty.

From home decor to gardens, food to fashion, Liz will be sharing her journey exploring a beautiful life.

You can find her at her blog, Keep it French , or hanging out on her stunning Instagram feed.

Sawdust and High Heels 2Stacy van Zyl – Sawdust and High Heels

And then there is me, Stacy – Wife, Mother, Manager, and now, Blogger. I just love all things DIY and home decor and can think of no better way of spending my weekends than by tackling a new project. I have no formal training in design or home construction, so am learning by trial and error. I have a passion for sharing what I am learning along the way!

You can find me right here on my blog, or spending way too much time on my favourite social media platform, Instagram.
