Bungalow Living is a natural outlet for me to combine my two passions – homeware and photography. I grew up on an Indian Ocean beach and now live on the Atlantic coast and am obsessed with the beautiful and vastly diverse shorelines of our oceans, from which I derive my photographic inspiration. The idea to combine the things I love has all fallen wonderfully into place and I’ve met so many amazing humans on my new journey.
Bungalow Living scatter cushions are made in Masiphumelele by a wonderful organisation that offers free skills training for unemployed and unskilled members of the community, creating employment opportunities in the CMT (Cut Make Trim) business.
The carved wooden planters and shelves are also made by a group of men from disadvantaged communities, who have taught themselves wood-working skills.
Everything in the Bungalow Living range is made in Cape Town and it’s been so rewarding to tap into the skills and amazing creative talent that we have here, and to work with people from all walks of life.
My mission is to feed my creative passion, to make people’s homes a happier and more beautiful place, while hopefully enhancing the quality of life for those who have become part of my Bungalow Living team.
