Backstage Pass: We take you on set with us for decor inspiration

For the latest Ideas Issue, on shelf now, we pulled out all the stops! Our decor inspiration shoot was one of the biggest ones we’ve done in a long time! Not only did we get five pieces specially made for the shoot from some of SA’s top designers, but we also filmed the whole shoot, so that you can get a feel for what happens on set. 

Filmed by the lovely Georgina Warner at Roodebloem studios, watch this clip to see who, what , how and why we do decor!

A production of this size meant that the whole team pitched in to help! From our art director to managing editor. This is us all looking a little exhausted, dirty and excited that the shoot was such a success.
