The last job has just finished. After the last few months working around the clock to get here, it all feels a bit surreal…

Before I fall into a heap, I want to take this opportunity to wish you a very Merry Christmas!

Thank you for your support and I look forward to continuing our journey in 2015…



all is calm… all is bright…

(It’s Christmas)

However you choose to spend this festive season I hope it will be in the company of close family and great friends.

This year has been big and exciting for Sabi Style. I would like to take this opportunity to thank all the incredible people I have been lucky enough to work with. It is wonderful to be invited into someone’s home to help them and be part of making their dreams come true.

It has been so exciting to share what inspires me here on this blog as well as on TwitterPinterest and Instagram. Thank you to all of you who engage and connect this way. Through these mediums I have been so inspired by the creative people around me.

I wish you all a very Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas!

The stockings were hung by the chimney with care,

In hopes that St Nicholas soon would be there. Continue reading
