Design Sponge


I woke this morning to a banging headache, a sleepless restless child and a chaotic household.

We have a best friend visiting with us from Kuala Lumpur and having a very small apartment for our little family of three, a thunderstorm and a party of four makes for beautiful chaos.

The thought of creating beauty around my home in this context was a little overwhelming until my husband brought me a coffee in bed, three little squares of chocolate and I grabbed a book lent to me from a dear friend.

Inspiration arose.

The chaos faded and excitement, design and creativity won.

Sometimes we think we need the perfect setting, the perfect moment and the perfect atmosphere for inspiration to arise.

Not true.

We just need to stop.

I find reading or flicking through something inspirational has the capacity to shine light.
