Hello and welcome!

My name is Rosslyn Tebbutt, and I'm a South African multidisciplinary creative, interior consultant, and founder of internet company SampleBoard.com, a digital moodboard creator software program for creatives.

This blog started as an educational destination for SampleBoard users to learn digital mood board creation and client presentation techniques but soon turned into a dedicated space curating current and future interior trends and how to apply them in our daily lives.


With 20+ years of experience working in the creative tech and interior design world, I have extensive expertise in creative concept development (offline and online) with a passion for:

  • Defining brand identities
  • Brand marketing
  • Copywriting
  • Website design and development
  • E-commerce development
  • Interior design styling
  • Interior e-design


Prior to starting SampleBoard back in 2010, I worked as an interior designer at Louis Karol Architects, one of the largest multidisciplinary firms in South Africa, and before that at Area Sq in London, one of the UK's leading commercial interior design and fit-out specialists. I've studied painting, history of art, photography, magazine journalism, web design, and hold a national diploma in Interior Architecture from the Cape Peninsula University of Technology in Cape Town.

I live in beautiful, sunny Cape Town with my husband, daughter, two dogs, four cats, five chickens, and three fish.
