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!
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.
Brand new website The Design Keeper showcases unique homewares and fashion pieces with strong design elements and understated elegance. I spoke to Director (and fellow ISCD graduate) Anne-Maree Mammoliti about establishing the store, its ethos and what's coming up for the brand!
I've had my much-loved industrial coffee table for a while now (I blogged about this bad boy last year when I first got him) and I must say it's been a lengthy love affair. I posted about him on Instagram recently and got a few people asking where I'd scored him from, so I thought I would give you the lowdown on where he was sourced - as well as a good excuse to look at him again and adore his industrial coffee table beauty!
My obsession with cushions is a well documented one (no need for an intervention just yet), so I simply had to share these new releases with you from local business Shakiraaz. Shakira Lima - the talented Melbournite behind the brand - has been labouring away for months on four unique designs, which I'm crushing on like a tween on Beiber and will be showing you today in this colourful post!
I never used to believe in love at first site until I walked into Koskela. Once I was there, I realised my one true homewares love had been found. Now, this Sydney mecca for all things marvellous has opened an online. Everyone in Australia can appreciate their glorious pieces. I did a Store Tour there a few months back and adored everything they had to offer, so I'm beyond excited that y'all get the chance to get in on the action!
For Ria Ford of local business Zambella, living in South Africa for 10 years exposed her to the beaded arts movement. Using recycled items to create handmade gifts, it supports a community of more than 450 artists. The best part? The products are now selling on the Down That Little Lane website and I'm showcasing them (and other wares) today on the blog.
