Small Strokes

Interior design acknowledges that beauty is an essential part of daily life.

We specialize in property and home styling, set production, consulting and interior design.


A stylist is like an editor.

We work with you to come up with the visual concept of the project. To maximize the face of your product we give it the right context, styling and attention to detail so that you sell more.


From conceptualization to execution.

We offer tailor-made packages to suit your specific wedding or event needs.  

 Our packages include visual design, sourcing of suppliers, liaising with suppliers, budgeting, timelines, setup and styling.


Hi, I am Carissa.

You can say that I am an aesthete- someone who is totally and utterly obsessed with beautiful things. It is therefore only fitting that I  found a way to earn a living while doing what I am most passionate about- beautifying the world around me.

I have not always been as obsessed with aesthetics as I am now, but I guess it was deeply imprinted in my genes. I completed my B.Com Degree at Stellenbosch University and then went on to working in the fashion retail industry and hospitality sector as wedding & event coordinator.


It was not until I met Tanja Cronje from Grand Room Design that life came full circle. She offered me a position at her trendsetting event decor company and let me into a big secret that day- which was that my mom , an esteemed interior designer and former florist, was the reason that she started her business nearly 20 years ago.

I gained valuable experience as a décor stylist and later enrolled for an interior design course which has given me wonderful years of experience in the event-, styling- and marketing industry. 

Every project I take on is born from a love for creativity, freedom of expression,and attention to detail.


I look forward to creating with you.
