The Weekend Wrap: Copper Tapware, Spring Bedding + Flamingo Homewares

Welcome to The Weekend Wrap; the post that contains all the best design news, essential reading and interiors goss from the week gone by.

These snippets and gems weren’t juicy enough to be feature in a dedicated post on the blog, so they’ve been given some love here. It’s the best way for you to get the lowdown on what’s going on – and get it all in one place. Enjoy!

Shibori Bedding - Blue Ombre Bedding from Logan and Mason - The Life Creative

Logan & Mason lands in Aus

New beddind brand Logan & Mason has just landed in Aus. It aims to create subtle drama in the bedroom by introducing two collections a year, much like the fashion industry. I’m loving the Indigo colour story in the snap above, but you an see more designs on their website.

Flamingo homewares and decor from papier damour - The Life Creative

Flamingo Lovers Unite

This week on the blog I declared that concrete homewares aren’t dead. Add flamingoes to the list! I think these hot pink decor delights have at least another year in them. Papier d’Amour must agree – they have loads of designs to choose from in their online store.

Anise Skincare Products - Insect Repellant Spray - The Life Creative

Stylish Summer Essentials

I showcased the beauty of Anise Skincare products on the blog a few months back and am delighted that their new range of summer essentials makes necessary items like insect spray attractive. Ditch the ugly supermarket supplies and deck your beach bag out with some of these.

Copper Tapware from ACS Design Bathrooms - The Life Creative

Copper Tapware – yes thanks!

I nearly had heart palpitations when I saw the stunning beauty that is copper tapware from ACS Designer Bathrooms. I’m mad for black tapware at the moment but I reckon these metallic shades are giving black a run for its money. You can find out more about this brand here.

The Life Creative studio Essendon

The TLC Studio is coming together

Kreo Home and The Life Creative recently moved into a divine design studio together. It’s based in Essendon, Melbourne, and we’re in the process of decking it out with amazing products from local brands, so we can get it looking just right.

I’ll have a full before and after feature for you on the blog in the coming weeks, but this gives you an idea of the hideous blue floor that was in the space when we moved in and the new floor being laid by the very talented team at Carpet Court Essendon. We heart you guys!

DIY Scandi mirror - scandinavian design ideas - The Life Creative

Make a DIY Scandi Mirror

I adore a good craft project, and nothing pleases me more than seeing really good ones from some of my fave local creatives. This week, the Tomfo website is showcasing a very cool Scandi mirror DIY project, which you can get the tutorial for by clicking here.

  • Well aren’t you just gorgeous! Thanks for the wrap I’m so pleased with the Scandi mirror, one of my favourite things we’ve made so far.
