World Health Day
Last year, to the surprise of no one, bleach sales spiked by 138%. (Followed by vodka, with a 104% increase, which also totally makes sense to us!) In our book, finding ways to maintain a Healthier Home has become an investigation that goes far beyond safe and sanitised surfaces, into healthier ways to share our spaces and co-exist harmoniously on this planet. As it’s World Health Day on 7 April, it’s fitting that we unpack our healthy mind-body-soul-home journey for you over, on the blog.
COVID Hygiene Protocols
Lockdown Levels may have lifted to Level 1, but our showrooms continue to offer next level COVID hygiene protocols to give you peace of mind and a sanitised space. Rest assured. Screens are in place for your interactions with our sales staff. Sanitation stations are set up at store entrances. Bathroom facilities exceed COVID needs. And there is more than enough space for social distancing. Our promise to you: safe shopping and beautiful living. #livebeautifully #liveknowing #staysafe
50 & Beyond
Remember when we turned 50? We had so much to celebrate and so much to look forward to. We had no idea what lay ahead - none of us did - but here we all are, a year later, survivers and thrivers, acing the ‘new normal’. Well done you. Well done us. Such gratitude to be here at 50 plus, finding new and adjusted ways to do what we love, so our beloved Italstylers can continue to #livebeautifully come what may! Read all about our renew and refresh goals, up on the blog. #livebeautifully…
Season to Celebrate
After 2020’s plenty-plenty troubles, we say farewell to Zoom and Gloom. Now, ‘tis the season to celebrate our survival mode – all those months of keeping our Beautiful Living lights shining brightly. It’s time for sun, snoozes, party-party and prosecco. If you’ve decided not to travel, may we suggest you cast an eye over our Season of Celebrations blogpost, where we celebrate - among other special and joy-bringing things (including you) - the upstyled Staycation. #livebeautifully #celebrate

Bringing Beautiful Back
In these dreary corona times, we’ve all become OK with being OK. Friends, we’re here to say - drop the drab.

Now’s the time to invest in ‘Brand Mzansi’ and help regenerate our economy again. Love local and look for the Proudly South African stickers instore and online: they’re flying the flag for Ceramic Industries and all our local suppliers. These extraordinary groups create gorgeous ceramic tiles, sanware and heated towel rails, and they lead the way in truly sustainable processes.
Happy Father's Day
You’re the builder of the best blanket forts. The shoulder we lean on. The school project builder. The good-hearted receiver of socks and soap-on-a-rope. The bank of bad jokes. To all our Proudly South African Dads (and the amazing Moms who have to be Dads, too), Happy Father’s Day. Drop the DIY tools and raise a glass to yourself! #fathersday #dadsrock #dadlife #fatherhood #build #familyfirst #dadsofinstagram #dadjokes #modernhome #homerenovation #livebeautifully #livemindfully #livegreen
National Youth Day
We remember the courage and sacrifice of this nation’s young hearts on this day in 1976, and honour the youth of today, whose hopes and dreams continue to move our great country from where we are, to where we should be. To our young followers, we send a special message. You are the architects of a more beautiful life. We hear you, we see you, and we stand with you.
Sometimes, in challenging times like these, it’s important to remind yourself why you do what you do, what makes your heart beat faster, and what makes you go to bed and night and get up in the morning. For us, it’s finding mindful ways for you to live beautifully: our movie says it best. #livebeautifully #livegreen #livemindfully #ecochic #wehavethisthingwithtiles #italiantiles #welovewhatwedo #interiordesign #luxurydecor #fiftyplusandfabulous #intentionalliving #interiors #exteriors…
“Wow” to Moms
Today we’re saying “Wow” to Moms. Partly because “Wow” is “Mom” upside down and boy, has your world been turned upside down! But mostly, we’re saying “Wow” because you do so much, and we want to acknowledge all the jobs you’re doing right now. You’re working, momming, cheerleading, baking, teaching, and generally trying to flatten the chaos curve and make life beautiful.
