My Favourite things...

As one of the interior designers at award-winning Tonic Design, Georgina knows a thing or two about the bits and pieces that make life that much more beautiful. Here’s the scoop on what inspires and excites this stylish Joburg dweller. • Glassware – both heirloom and the hand-blown pieces we stock at Tonic. • Iconic Sergio Rodriguez chairs from international design company Classicon. • Gold Bar doorstop by Arik Levy for Eno. • A Paul Smith Metallic Rabbit – I have one that I actually won! • My parents' garden - nine acres of bliss. • Mad Men – I love the styling of the interiors and clothing on this TV series. • Iconic local artist Walter Battiss’ work. • Big, lush, green leaves like Elephant Ears. I have them all over my house at the moment. • Two little white porcelain birds given to me for my birthday. • Jielde lamps – available at Tonic. I've just ordered two yellow ones. • New leather boots that I had hand-made in Cape Town by shoemaker Diamonde. He stocks mememe in Joburg and Cape Town. • My iPod – I can't live without music. • Bronze horses and Linware plates – both my mum’s – the horses come from Greece. tonicdesign.co.za
