I have always crushed on Love Milo , their designs are simply elegant and I absoultley love the cross use of materials and textures. Excitingly , last week Nikki and I attended the launch of Love Milo’s botanical range at Nap Living in Cape Quarter.

 My dear friend Nikki & I.

Nap is TO.DIE.FOR ! It was my first time there and I cannot believe what I have been missing out on… They stock a beautiful array of products from linen and glassware to furniture and so much more. Everything has a natural aethetic and this couldnt have been a better setting for the launch of Love Milo’s botanical range.

All Love Milo designs are created using photography, none are computer generated, this allows the final product to reflect the graphic lines and forms found in nature while also maintaining the slight imperfections of our environment.

 “It is this natural diversity within african environment that is the inspiration behind all our products. ” – Nicki, founder and owner of Love Milo.

Most of Love Milo’s designs are monochrome and while this is my favourite I do like the hint of colour in the new botany range. Visit the Love Milo’s website here, they also have an online store – how convenient!

Like them on Facebook or instagram to keep up with new and fun projects Nicki is busy on… Want to know more about Nap Living? Visit their website here.

Product Crush: Pantone

Product crush: Pantone by Melissa Louise

I am completely obsessed with Pantone. I love that each colour can stand on its own, is named and when paired can create magic. Their products are iconic and the PANTONE® name is known worldwide as the standard language for colour communication from designer to manufacturer to retailer to customer.

Pantone produces a wide range of products but a few of my favourites can be purchased locally with a lovely online store called Elephantshoe.

“Established in 2010 by us (Sam & James), Elephantshoe is a custom boutique Paperie, Branding and Styling Design Studio. Based in Johannesburg, South Africa, we don’t believe that a little latitude and longitude should get in the way of working with clients near and far, so drop us a mail and we’ll get straight back to you (minus that time difference thing).” – Elephantshoe

Here are a few of my Pantone favourites purchasable on their store- see them here.
