5 Minutes with Magdel:
extremely eclectic, I am a more-is-more kind of girl …
I am inspired by:
absolutely anything and everything. I love this crazy city I live in!
I love my home because:
it has history – and lots of strange little nooks perfect for putting up strange little collections.
My home DIY projects included:
loads of painting and planning. Oh, and constantly re-arranging my collections.
I splurged on:
my new loft upstairs. It is the one serene space in my house.
My advice for other home decor enthusiasts are:
to plan your space and then slowly collect your bits and pieces from all over. I love gumtree.
The biggest challenge is:
finding space for the constant stream of gorgeous items that follow me home. My long-suffering husband pleads that if something new comes in, something old has to go out, but I am a hoarder at heart.
What do you love most about your home?
There is never a dull moment in my house, it is a little bit crazy like me.
My favourite shops are:
Big Blue for gifts, Antiques on Kloof for quirky finds, Loft Living for big pieces. But I honestly manage to fall in love with something wherever I go.
My favourite destination is:
The Breede River and Robertson wine route. My style heroes are Liesel Crafford, my fabulously stylish interior decorator friend who is always trying to be diplomatic when facing my design dilemmas. Oh, and Andre my partner and the designer at TinTown.
