A few months ago, a friend asked if I would be interested in showcasing our home for the upcoming Mai Life Style magazine. Mai Life Style is a biannual, glossy lifestyle magazine for Fiji and the Pacific. Absolutely, was my answer! What a wonderful opportunity to share our home with others, a space my husband and I value and an important component for us to feel at home in a new country. We love our new digs in Fiji at the Capital Hill Apartments, and never tire of the breath-taking views and spacious living that lend a modernity to our mostly African decor.
Our collected art and decor is thoughtfully placed, showcasing pieces that hold meaning to us from our travels and previous ‘homes’, where each piece can shine and be noticed. With so much moving around the globe (Fiji is our 8th international move!) we don’t have excess or much clutter, and make new purchases carefully. We look for items that speak of a culture that holds a place in our heart, invokes a memory and brings a smile. This is part of the way we are able to feel at home anywhere!
The magazine article also gave me an opportunity to share my fashion design AND model! It was a bundle of fun ideas, all rolled into one! Here are a few snaps from that fun day. Unfortunately my ‘modeling’ was a little TOO ‘model-y’ and I ended up looking very serious….but thankfully the focus was more on the decor!
