transforming your vision into reality
My business philosophy is the excitement of bringing a space to life or creating a unique event that speaks about the occasion as much as it does a personal story.
I love connecting with my clients and transforming their vision into a reality. My passion is to do things others aren´t doing and to ensure that the tiniest of detail is as important as the big.
Whether it is THAT day you say, ‘I Do’, a small celebration, a boutique conference, a special birthday, a meditative retreat, a girlie brunch or the transformation of your home – my promise is to make it a reflection of you – no matter your dream, no matter the destination.

I was born on the 19th December… (many years ago) into the most incredible loving family. Growing up I was fortunate to live in a beautiful, secure home, play in a garden and have regular holidays within this diverse country of ours. It was a protected childhood and we lived by a strong value system.
I was a shy little girl, who loved to dance. Ballet became my life and at that young age I aspired to be the next ‘Margot Fonteyn’. I never did become a prima ballerina but I did dance for fifteen years which taught me discipline, perseverance and how to interpret a creative vision.
After matriculating, I went on to study interior design at the Natal Technikon. Diploma in hand, I ventured overseas to learn about people, their culture and the real world…
‘Lynne Holding is both an interior designer and event planner who combines her creative and organisational talents to create an experience that is deeply personal for her clients and not about the latest trends. Co-ordinating my BIG 4 celebration, she combined both talents with flair and exceptional difference. What an impact she made! My gratitude always.’
Vanessa – Cape Town
‘Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for everything you did to make our day perfect. All the planning, organising, phone calls, calming of our nerves would not have been possible without you. We felt so relaxed during this process. You started off as our wedding planner and you have become more than that – you are a true friend . Our hearts are so filled with gratitude and admiration for all that you did in making our Midlands wedding spectacular. PS : your hand sewn and monogrammed surprise blankets to ward off the unscheduled misty weather were priceless!’
Warren and Ashley – Gauteng
‘Lynne was an inspiration to work with in the re-decorating of my home. The furniture I thought should be relegated to the charity bin, she upscaled to a centre piece. Her eye for colour, finishing touches and the appreciation of family heirlooms brought a new life to a tired home.’
Melanie – KZN
‘From our first meeting , the professional way in which you took the brief, your attention to detail and the creative input you so freely gave was astonishing. A cocktail party, gala dinner, VIP private seating at the rugby for 60 guests and an in-situ lunch for golfers and party stragglers on the last day plus overseeing accommodation for my family and guests -WOW! Hardened Johannesburg socialites came up to me and told me how astonished they were at the extraordinary quality of not only the food you personally prepared , but the attention to detail in the decorating of the marquee and the high level of service. Serving seventy people at the same time with hot, perfectly prepared and decorated gourmet food is no mean feat, and you and your team did it with aplomb. Thank you for being the catalyst that ensured the resounding success of my 70th birthday. My friends are still talking about their incredible weekend in the Midlands. Recommending the very best is easy to do, and you thoroughly deserve to have your wonderful business supported in the future. They will not be disappointed – we weren’t.’
Adri and John – Gauteng
