What the last 6 months have looked like for me!

The past 6 months have been a massive learning curve as well as incredible adventure for me! I made the very hard decision to temporarily put GABBE (my interior design studio) on hold so that I could have some real time and what I call ‘emotional freedom’ from my full time work whilst caring for my first child. I love my job and I love my clients, but deep down I had an underlying dream that always got put to the side due to time restraints with running 3 small businesses simultaneously. This time off was tremendously vital for me to get pen to paper and start scribbling down all of my ideologies which have been so relevant to my life as well as my design processes with my clients..

In my new book "A Healthy Home A Healthy You," I write:

This book is dedicated to my son Jesse Aaron Morris: who gave me the permission to listen to myself, go for my dreams and live the healthiest version of my life.

There is so much truth in my dedication. The space I gave myself as well as bringing my beautiful son in my life put so much into perspective and allowed me to fully explore some long time passions.

Back in 2015,  Richie and I were living in an apartment which effected our emotional and physical health/well being. The apartment was south facing and sandwiched between two very tall buildings. The space was always cold and dark, the apartment was ridden with rising damp, mold started growing on our clothes and you could smell the bacteria in the air. Our lives were affected in so many ways during this period. My first hand experiences lead me to this powerful knowledge that we hold yet completely underestimate. The more and more I thought, lived, experienced, listened, heard and looked around me, the greater I realized how intrinsically connected our mental wellbeing was to our home.

3 months of pen to paper, I now have a self published book ” A Healthy Home A Healthy you” and already the book has been so well received… I am flattered by the responses from readers who have bought the book.  This book drastically helped me as well as so many thus far, I know this is an area all – not just interior lovers - need to learn about.

THIS WEEK WE ARE AT THE MAGNIFICENT

This week we take a look at Hotel Don Pepe located in Santa Marta, Colombia.

Santa Marta is South America’s oldest city and has the historical architecture to show for it. This hotel is heritage listed, which allows it to showcase the original brickwork and archways,

that are still intact. These elements have been reclaimed to enhance their relevance for today.

Hotel Don Pepe is made up of both original brickwork and tiles, as well as modern materials that make sure it stays true to the city’s colonial heritage.

Georgia’s favourite design elements at Hotel Don Pepe- White, white and more white. What brings the different textured elements together are the tonal whites that cover many aspects from the travertine floors to the white painted walls, and to the  white washed timbers. The white keeps the space looking fresh and unique, and when juxtaposed to the original brick the space looks amazing.

Bring a piece of Hotel Don Pepe to your home in the following ways:

1. Plaster your walls with a rippling effect and paint them white. The texture keeps it interesting, and you can never go wrong with a classic white coat of paint.
2. Expose the lintels above your doorways. Lintels or archways can be what gives a space its own individual identity, so show them off! Paint or add a white wash to the surrounding timber to keep the the colour scheme consistent.
3. Use indoor plants such as palm trees to bring in some colour and help the space look lived in. Plants always help a home look homely.

4. Tilesofezra have a fabulous in stock floor tile range, create interest intrigue and an exotic result via floor tiles!
