I love supporting local Creatives, but one must acknowledge the fab things our brothers from another mother are doing over in New Zealand. The decor gods listened to my cries for stunning imagery this week as these New Zealand homewares snaps from new Auckland store, Indie Home Collective, hit my inbox. If you're a lover of earthy, eclectic or industrial decor, have your bib at the ready as we begin the drool-fest. If someone can fly these pieces over to me on the red eye it would be very much appreciated!
For Sarah Preston, the founder of Tomfo (Tomorrow’s Family Organiser), keeping her home running smoothly has become second nature. “We always say put it on the calendar; if it's not on the calendar, it's not on,” she says. The local creative not only produces a family organiser you can use to keep your life in order (in dire need right here!), but she’s producing some other creative gems I’m going gaga over too.
I'm normally a bit of a colour obsessive, but I can't deny the fact that the lure of white has been a little too hard to resist lately. I'm beginning to see why so many of you are fond of keeping things crisp and clean like this at home. Well, I've gone all out with this post; a curation of ten wondrous white homewares buys, that are available online for you to nab right now.Simply click on the picture and follow the link to the store to buy the white homewares pice - too easy!ABOVE: The Signature Dining Table from Freedom.
Rugs are the new cushions if you ask me; they're so affordable nowadays that you can swap them around at a moment's notice when you tire of your old one (unlike when they swapped old Pippa for new Pippa on Home and Away - that was just too big a change for me to handle). The added bonus with smaller, lightweight rugs like the ones above is that you can layer them for a relaxed and casual vibe that still packs a visual punch (and you can score them at a discounted price - read on!)
For as long as I can remember I have loved everything about Britain. And no, it has nothing to do with that Union Jack dress Ginger Spice wore at the Brits that time (though I’m sure it helped). There is just something so wonderfully charming about British homewares. Founder of SE10 Gallery, Sam Cannell, clearly shares my fondness for all things UK, because she’s opened a gorgeous online homewares store that celebrates it!
It’s no secret that I would move into an IKEA showroom given half the chance; my love for IKEA is that strong. What has made me even more smitten with the place is their recent mission to encourage us all to make time for living. You know, put the phone down, step away from the email and let something magical happen. Are you up for the challenge?
I love the online world. It feels like every few days I stumble across a person or store through social media that makes me go gaga. This week it’s Incy Interiors; a business that specialises in designer furniture for babies and children - plus so much more. Their art and accessories are so cute that even I want them for my room (that, or I need to father I child immediately - it could go either way!).
