i recently went to the Homes and Interiors Scotland Exhibition, here in Glasgow, and was not surprised, albeit disappointed, that the Scots have the same sense of aesthetic that is currently mainstream in South Africa. The decorators rooms on view section looked like the majority of the rooms displayed in all the exhibitions in Durban.
Why is no-one taking a chance with a fresh and new aesthetic? Why does the space not read like an individual's, with elements of design and scale cleverly mimicking each other, rather than it all obviously matching, with layers and layers of fabrics and textures? Is this so the decorator can make more money on selling textiles? i don't mean to be offensive, or controversial. i just think its time for a change.

There was one stand at the exhibition that stood out: Fun Makes Good
Her work is beautiful and fresh - reupholstered and restored furniture, with a quirky style element:

Right on trend with both the bird motif and the origami shapes.

Reminiscent of South Africa's own Casamento :
