The coming together for this passion project was such a natural occurrence for sisters, Germaine and Jocelyn.
Germaine founded Spases in 2010, back then it was a blog that housed her creative thoughts when it came to all things interiors. This has been a hobby of sorts for the past 10 years and she has always had an itch to create something.
Jocelyn on the other hand has been in the textile industry for years and has experience in the nuts and bolts of textile manufacturing, trend forecasting and the back end of the fashion world. With an understanding of fabric construction and quality, it was a no brainer!
Spases has a real appreciation for our African heritage with a minimal twist. This collection of products is their love for all things natural, minimal and African.
WHY I LOVE THEM
I have been following Spases for a while. Their look, feel and style aligns perfectly with my minimalist aesthetic and I love that they have an African feel that is still modern and contemporary.
Their decor items, colour choices and textures could fit seamlessly into my own home which is probably why it was love at first sight.
This sister duo plays by their own rules, inspiring beautiful, timeless decor that is kept simple and made with love.
THIS MONTHS CURATIONS
LOVE THIS LOOK
30cm x 50cm lumbar
Paired with the plain Ines Pillow, the Kenzo breathes life into this simple bedroom look.
Adding colour whilst still keeping things simple, this little lumber will brighten up any room with its pretty texture and eye-catching design.
Vintage Baule Cloth hails from the Ivory Coast and was a cloth traditionally worn by communities to celebrate special events and cultural gatherings. The entire process of making the cloth is entirely made by hand, from converting raw cotton into yarn to the bleaching process and ultimately to using natural colourants, resulting in vibrant patterns. Each piece is individually made and the imperfections make it unique!
ON MY WISHLIST
45cm x 45cm
Oh but I love the Koko! This baby is begging for an island-inspired occasional chair, made from cane, rattan or rope.
I can picture myself on a cool verandah with views of the ocean, a book in one hand and a cocktail in the other...leaning back on my Koko.
But the fact is that you don't have to be by the seaside to feel comfort and relaxation and to be surrounded by beauty. The next best thing would be to bring vacation living into the comfort of your home.
Cue: The Koko
MIX IT UP
On its own or paired with the other Baule Cloth cushions in the Spases range, the Kerra is another fabulous statement accessory that will add an essence of coastal living and relaxation to your home decor.
I can picture a mix of all three of these cushions on a white L shaped couch.
