Design VISI

One of my favourite South African interior and design magazines is VISI. (The other two are Elle Decoration and House & Leisure). I got the most recent VISI last week - I just love to sit in front of a fire on a rainy day and pore over a beautiful magazine, don't you? This issue has an Eastern theme. Look at the big Tretchikoff blow-up! Who would have thought 50 years ago that these prints would become so trendy! (You can download some Tretchi wallpaper here, by the way ...)

This issue also includes exquisite (as always!) photographs by artist Lien Botha. (They are of camellias, but you already knew that, didn't you?)

And now I must just find out how to get pictures next to one another in a post. If anyone wants to point moi in the right direction, she will be most grateful ...

Beautiful pictures - a visual feast!

You might like to check out:

lots of lovely picture manipulation tools. The mosaic tool particularly will let you save pictures next to each other & then upload them as a single unit to your blog.

Have fun!!!

kendalee: Thank you my dear - with Blanche du Bois I can but say: "I always rely on the kindness of strangers". I am going to try out the link. The mosaic tool sounds cool. Plus, I like mosaic! Plus now I know what to post next week in Things I have Made! So much better than relying on the kindness of strangers is relying on the kindness of friends!
