ProBlogger in August, gave me the opportunity to meet many new people. Just before the event, I contacted my good friend Sammie, to offer her a lift from the airport to the venue, I asked if anyone else was traveling with her, as I had a big car, and plenty of room for some extras. This is how I met the wonderful Kim, as bold, bright and beautiful in life as online.
I’ve since had a ball (and a full tummy) exploring her blog Land of Zonkt which has lead me to such yumminess as Tandoori Rice Salad and Healthy School Holiday Snacks, but Kim is not just a blogger, she is the creator of Zonkt Designs and her one of a kind Mini Masterpieces. When not sharing yummy recipes on her blog, Kim is a lover of DIY projects.
Tell us a little about yourself?
A bit of a foodie & a lover of all things creative. I’m a mum of 2 kids, 2 poodles & wife to a fitness-mad hubby. I’m creator of Zonkt Designs & my one-of-a-kind Mini-Masterpieces. Children’s art transformed into collated art designs.
I write a blog called Land of Zonkt, as space I share my love of food and creative DIY’s alike.
My favourite thing to do is anything that allows me to be creative whether it’s something designed on the computer or repurpose and old cabinet. I love it all!
Tell us about your favourite space?
The space I am sharing today is my main living space, its an open planned space making up my Living, Dining and Kitchen. One big bright eclectic space. Filled with quite a few of my favourite things…
What is it about this space that makes it your favourite space?
So many reasons. One is that it’s pretty much a showcase of me. I love to create and this space shows off a few of my handy works… Repurpose Retro Cabinet, My massive DIY Shower Curtain Art and my rug made out of bath mats.
It also merges my love of food, my white and bright kitchen.
What are your favourite items in this space?
I love so many things… my lounge one of the BEST investments ever made, its from Plush and I LOVE it. So much room and it is beyond comfortable. I can plop my self there after the kids are put to bed, feet up on my ottoman with a cuppa in hand.
I also can’t go past my dinning room. This was quite a boring corner and with having a deep grey on the apposing space I couldn’t over decorate without it looking cluttered or poky. So instead of lots of things I went for one BIG thing!
My 160x160cm DIY artwork. This I made myself and was created in 2hr, from non other than a shower curtain. It has to be one of the best things I’ve made and still now I get a lot of people just amazed by it when they see it.
It’s also probably familiar to those who have seen my Salad videos, it provides a nice and vibrant backdrop.
In front of my massive DIY artwork is my dinning table made from reclaimed shipping palettes. This is one I didn’t make, I left that to the pro’s at Super Amart. But I chose this dinning table because it had bench seats. I wanted to simplify the lines and again make it appear less cluttered and its worked a treat.
How does this space make you feel?
It is very hard to walk into this room and not be uplifted by it’s bright and vibrant appearance. I love that a lot have been done on a pretty tight budget and it still has an eclectic feel that doesn’t appear cheap or tacky. Well to me anyway.
You’ve nailed it Kim, warm, genuine, eclectic a great space that matches your personality. Like to know a little more about Kim?
