Yvonne has worked mainly on residential homes, but also a polo estate, a lodge in the Namib Desert as well as the 6 camps at Londolozi Game Reserve.
Yvonne creates rooms that are understated, personal and quietly refined. She feels a good room is richly layered while it maintains a simple restraint.
In spring of 2009, Yvonne opened a showroom called The Private House Company where she sources furnishings from all over the world as well as carefully selects pieces that inspire her to incorporate in her decorating projects. Enthused by the subtleties of nature and natural light, her shop is a reflection of her personal design style.
