A few Mondays ago me and my interior decorating-crazed sister met up at Timbuktoo in lower main rd. Woodstock for a coffee and a chat.Our creative feathers were soflty stroked and tickeled by the decor element to be found in this here old warehouse turned decorator's heaven .Bianca was due to leave for London yet again I could think of a no better place for the two of us to enjoy a cuppa before she jets off over the seas again.Still dumbstruck by the fine design and decor that Timbuktoo houses we ended up in an at length conversation about how South Africa is growing in terms of it's standard in the design and art industries.We move around the warehouse just in awe of how the bold interior displays of african art seem to be giving the unfinished dry cement back wall of the warehouse a fresh and uplifting dimension.Bianca gets a teeny tiny  sentimental twinkle in her eye ,I notice.She points out to a painting of an african woman carrying a water can on her head and elects it as her favourite one there.The warehouse really has an eclectic feel about it which in my opinion makes for sort of  an idea box for keen aspiring designers and creatives alike.Bianca has her sites set on taking her passion for interiors to the next level she reveals to me as we a little later make our way out........With a an admiring glance I think to myself , though London has captured  her heart ,Africa holds a very special place in it too.Cheerio(from a slightly teary eyed coolhunter G )PS:I am gonna miss my sister but hey I am gonna go visit lots.............
