I love a bit of quirk when it comes to the decor pieces I have in my home. So when I laid eyes upon these concrete skull lamps, it only made sense that I first have heart palpitations over them and then share them with you - along with the story of how they're made by designer Jesse Ferrino.
A few weeks back I popped into the International School of Colour + Design (ISCD) to throw back a champers and celebrate its 30th birthday. Despite it not looking a day over 21, the school has been educating a slew of stylists, designers and artists-in-the-making for over three decades - including me!

I feel there's nothing Tara Dennis can't do. This local legend has been designing, styling and crafting the nation for years and she's showing no signs of slowing down.
