Tangible Objectives

I’ve never liked resolutions, I prefer goals, tangible objectives achieved through measurable actions.

As an outward expression of this I launched the #curatethisspace initiative, the idea was simple, to open up our home to fellow creatives to express ideas, thoughts and philosophy over a great food and conversation, served by masterchef Neill Anthony, documenting it along the way.

The canvas was our Cado royal system wall unit, used as a mini gallery with each creative given a budget of R600 (under $100USD) to use towards decorating there shelf.

The participants were fellow creatives in different fields: Industrial Design (Lucas R Adams of Kraftisan), Interior Design (Neil Stemmet of Koncept Design Architecture and Interiors), Stylists (The Wild Creative of Thaya Bedford & Nicole Ravenscroft) and Illustration (Lauren Fowler), amazingly with no prior correspondence the team came up with designs that flowed seamlessly into each other as if almost inextricably linked.

You can read further thoughts and insights here:

Visi – Curate this Space
Design Indaba – Locally Curated
House & Leisure – People to watch in 2012

Excited by combining these elements into the singular creative event it led me to turning the concept into a new blog, curating life and documenting decor and lifestyle trends.

      Thanks Nick, I’ve made the copy a little bigger for non mobile devices as onscreen it was a tad small. Thanks for the kinds words, looking forward to sharing more of my life, not just food.

      Thanks Ish, I wanted to do something a little more inclusive. I love how you manage your content on yours, it just didn’t feel right doing that with I’m no Jamie Oliver, so here I get to express more than just food thoughts.
