Through restrictions, confinement, isolation and adversity, the past year has shown us how resilient we can be. As we continue to adapt and learn to live with uncertainty, the spaces we inhabit are more important than ever before. With this viewpoint, curator and interior designer Anette de Jager of Three Sixty Design invites us into her Cape Town home and shares some of her favourite finds that make up this serene sanctuary.

“Jan Ernst De Wet is an up-and-coming ceramic artist who I met online during lockdown in 2020. His style is truly unique, and I didn’t have to think twice before buying one of his pieces for my home.”
“Tharien Smith is an artist with a strong background in textile design (she also happens to be my neighbour!). I commissioned her to create an artwork for my bedroom titled ‘Soft Serve’.”
