Where do you feel most inspired?

I find inspiration anywhere and everywhere. It’s really hard to determine one place in particular but I think it’s fair to say that “the beach” is a constant inspiration for me.

How would you describe your personal style?

What’s your most prized possession? ​

My family. If I didn’t have anyone to share this wild adventure of life with, it would all be pretty much meaningless.

What’s your favorite travel destination?

Cape Town and its surrounding wine regions. It’s one of my favorite places, with the beautiful beaches, incredible wine and food, and inspiration at every turn – what more can you ask for?

On what items do you scrimp​?

I don’t quite believe in scrimping, although that doesn’t mean that everything has to be expensive and decadent. I try to ​live life as if everyday is a getaway, which can be as simple as a sprinkled rimmed cup of coffee on a Monday morning.

What makes a home beautiful?
