Marimekko TablewareIn my recent appearance in Real Living mag (check out the spread here), I mentioned that I would love to spend time with the design team at Marimekko. I thought it high time, then, that I show you some of their work in case you weren't familiar with the Finnish design powerhouse.

Urban Couture Homewares - The Life CreativeI’m in love with Urban Couture. There, I said it! Not only is this one-stop destination for interiors and homewares stunning to look at and shop in, but a percentage of profits is donated to the RSPCA. “I think in my past life I may have been a dog myself,” Tom Towhidi - one half of the team behind the brand - tells me.

This week gone by I have to admit that I got out and about a fair bit. From Newtown to Bondi Junction and beyond, I took in many a Sydney Homewares piece - and added a dash of fashion for good measure. Let me know which find is your fave, Creatives!Creative Find - Kobo Candle1 | My friend Kevin popped over this week gone by to check out the new digs and brought with him this glorious present from Pentimento in Newtown - a glorious Kobo Candle. The Vetiver and Shaved Vanilla scent is absolute nirvana for the nostrils and I can't put it down. If you're yet to experience Kobo, you don't know what you're missing!

March 2014 Real Living Cover - The Life CreativeThere's really no slow way to ease into this week's most fabulous news. So let's just jump right in; I'm in the new issue of Real Living magazine! Sharing the story of my design journey at the International School of Colour + Design, this full-page spread has me pinching myself - and also gives a glorious shot-out to my work on this little baby, The Life Creative!

Frame your Valentine's Day CardsSo sue me - I love to hold onto things. Though I'm not yet ready to star in an episode of Hoarders, I do like to find ways to upcycle or make something of things - especially if they're special or heartfelt. Case in point - Valentine's Day cards!

Bight Decor Buys - Colour Homewares - The Life CreativeIt's no secret that I'm utterly obsessed with colour. I prefer bright decor that screams a little at you as you enter the room. Eye-catching homewares definitely make a statement - and in today's post I'm showcasing 10 of my fave. The Moroccan Ottoman and Chevron Rug you you see above are from Kith & Co (click here to check them out) and below are nine more high-velocity homewares.
