2014 is filled with exciting adventures, opportunities and new creative endevours, the latest of which is my new blog: Our Gathered Home.

It started out of a need to share honest, authentic homes lived in by real people, across the globe and my aim is to showcase family life in a multifaceted approach to urban living.

I’ve launched with friends of mine, Rebecca and Bruce Meissner, a Cape Town, South Africa based documentary style photographic duo who own and run, Love Made Visible, focusing primarily on wedding photography.

Their rental home in Muizenberg is affectionately known as ‘The Boathouse’, where they reside with their surrogate cat. They don’t own a single piece of new furniture, everything is a hand-me-down or thrifted find. When they are not out shooting they can be found surfing, hiking, gardening, cooking, dreaming about their next travel adventure and building their own house.

Starting the first week of Feb I’ll be showcasing a new home tour there each week, follow along there and on Twitter, Facebook & Instagram.
