Last Wednesday we showed a few snapshots of our Editor Laureen Rossouw’s pinboards at home.

This happy shiny stuff is a snapshot of a corner of the living room of our ELLE DECO designer Gera Smuts, who currently has a weakness for gold, pink and a spot of glitter.

“Ok, I have to admit to being drawn to brassy stuff. I tend to joke about this. Alas, it’s true. I have gold, pink and glitter here, there and – actually, who am I kidding – everywhere.”

“That said, I try to have fun and change my walls depending on what I’m in the mood for. I like to rotate things. You can put away things that you’ve had enough of, and bring them out again when you feel like having them back again. There’s more to life than fine art.”

“And I believe in paint. It is such an inexpensive way to change things. This is for now. Soon it’ll all change again.”
