This week for our 2021 series, meet Camilla Temple. The interior designer known for creating beautiful & comfortable homes with a strong emphasis on quality and sustainable design. At the heart of her business is a belief in creating personal, sophisticated and most importantly, liveable spaces that function effortlessly.
We sat down with Camilla at her beautiful Auckland home & spoke to her about how she stays organised, her favourite feature in her new 2021 diary, the learnings she is taking away from 2020 & more.
2021, it’s the start of something new! What are you most looking forward to about the new year?
Becoming a working mother. 2020 has brought my greatest roll yet, motherhood. However, I’m excited to get my teeth back into some exciting new projects in 2021.
What learnings will you be taking away from (the crazy year that was) 2020 & into 2021? Have your experiences in 2020 changed your mindset & priorities in any way?
Working from home, works!
What is one personal, professional or financial goal you will be tracking in your 2021 diary?
2021 will involve a lot of multi-tasking now that I’m a mother. My diary is going to be a huge asset to keep me on top of everything.
How many years have you been using an An Organised Life diary?
This is my first!
What 2021 diary did you pick & why did you choose that style?
I went for the 2021 A4 Diary in Gold. I love being able to see my whole day, on one page.
Talk us through that feeling when you first unboxed your new AOL 2021 diary? What did you notice?
The smell. There’s nothing quite like the smell of a fresh diary!
What is your favourite feature in your 2021 diary & how will it help you stay organised?
The reflection pages. I’ve never seen this in a diary before and look forward to taking a moment and filling in these pages.
What's one personal or professional project you have been working on or have upcoming that requires you to be organised?
My life in general needs all the help it can get to be organised!
What are the top 3 ways you organise your life?
- ALL appointments are written in my diary
- Getting up early to read through the important emails before Rupert wakes up
- Before I head to bed, I look at what I have on the next day. It seems to help put my mind to rest.
What are your current desk essentials?
- My 2021 An Organised Life Diary – already in use for next year
- My favourite pen wrapped in Venetian paper
- Apple Air Laptop
Top organisation hack?
Write everything down. Appointments, meeting notes, supermarket lists. It’s the best way to keep on top of it all.
