Mally Skok featured in ID Boston Vol 9

Failing to mention that interior designer and textile/wallcovering artist Mally Skok hails from South Africa would be a major disservice to that nation. She is greatly inspired by her heritage and the enriching time spent in the Plettenberg Bay area with family and friends. She shops, she entertains, she hikes, and she soaks it all in before heading back to her idyllic pond-side home in Lincoln, Massachusetts.

Roses and Bunting and Furniture hunting!

On Wednesday last week, I arrived in London to an atmosphere of jubilation and excitement. I had inadvertently arrived on Jubilee weekend.

The general consensus […]
