In 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.
I’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.
The hallway is one of the most neglected spaces in the home; a thoroughfare that is often forgotten about or left behind because it presents too big a decor dilemma. I hear you, I feel your pain, and I'm coming
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!1 | 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!
I'm a big believer in personalisation. I don't want something that everyone else has. Thankfully, there are very easy ways to take mass-produced items and make them your own. This mood board makeover is a classic example. The original magnet
There'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!
This is possibly my favourite time of the year. Yes, even better than Christmas. The reason I'm so smitten with this moment is because it's the time in which all my fave shows come back from their break. House Rules
So 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!
It'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.
