Hi, peeps! I popped in at Decorex over the past weekend, so thought I'd share some of what I saw. Pics had to be snapped fast in between people walking past, but you get the general vibe. I had never been to Decorex before because I thought it was just homey stuff for people who were looking to get homey stuff done. I was right. Somehow the hype this year made me think there was more to it... there wasn't. Never fall for the hype, folks. It was cool to look at, but since I'm not in the market for any of what they were selling, it wasn't relevant to me. It was also smaller than I expected (less that the full Durban Exhibition Centre hall and no outside stalls). But apart from all that it was pretty well done and it all looked great, particularly the food area which was laid out to look like a garden with mini vertical pallet gardens and bits of fake grass here and there, the food stalls were all uniform in wood with pretty lighting, so it had a really nice feel to it.
Apart from the food area, the item that probably stood out the most was the beautiful cross stitch installation pictured above by stylist and interior decorator, Tracy Lee Lynch.
Unsurprisingly, the only stuff I left with was edible. I got a rose petal syrup from La Petite France, who specialise in cheese. It's so delicious, I just wanna keep dipping in. I drizzled some over a blob of ice-cream the other day - sooo yuummm! I also got a citrus balsamic drizzle from Froggit, which I haven't had a chance to try yet, but it tastes delicious on its own so should be yummy and help disguise salads well, hehe.
