Lovely origami

I have a house filled with paper. There is nothing like a stack of magazines to lift the creative spirits or a good book to curl up in bed with.

Design has incorporated the ancient paper art of origami in all shapes and forms. From fashion on our runways to furniture design and the clean simple lines are simply gorgeous.

In the wedding industry a thousand origami cranes have been incorporated in the decor for a very good reason. Here’s why …

An ancient Japanese legend promises that anyone who folds a thousand origami cranes will be granted a wish by a crane.

I have found a few stunning local and international examples of origami and hope it inspires.

Happy styling,

  1. Dit lyk so sag en elegant! Wonder of die kinders by die Kleuterskool dit sal kan doen? Miskien het jy voorbeelde van Kersfeesversierings wat klein kindertjies kan vou?

    dankie, ek geniet julle gereelde nuusbriewe. Dit gee weer nuwe inspirasie en laat mens lus voel om dinge te doen en te probeer!
