The way i see it
Consultant, curator and interior designer Anette de Jager, founder of interior architecture and renovation studio Three Sixty Design, welcomes us inside her Cape Town apartment
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.

“Charlotte Perriand is the designer whose work I resonate with the most. The simplicity of this little milk stool she designed is the perfect example of how aesthetics can speak to one’s soul and evoke instant emotion.”
