This Week’s Top Design and Decor Finds, June 2

You know my philosophy when it comes to decor; more is more (and minimalism is a bore!).

I love putting this post together each week to showcase the best design and decor drops for you. Not only is it good to showcase stuff the big brands are doing, but to shine a light on smaller brands is so vital too (they need our help!).

So let’s take a look at the most amazing design and decor discoveries from my week. Drop me a comment further down if you’ve spotted a new release in your travels that needs a mention. Enjoy!

This Week’s Top Design and Decor Finds, June 2

haymes paint blended neutral blush feature wall with dark teal sofa

New Haymes Paints

The team at Haymes are on a mission to reinterpret neutrals. Both images above come via them and showcase new tones for us to use in the coming months. They’re certainly vibrant and more playful that the neutrals we’re used to seeing (it’s time to retire beige!).

You can find out more about all the colours in their new Blended Neutrals range here.

love letters mug from idecorate shop white mug with gold lettering and gold handle

Blingy Coffee Mugs

I certainly love a bit of bling in my decor, so these Love Letter Mugs from iDecorate are the stuff my dreams are made of. The bonus is that they sport an ample handle. Because as I’m sure you’ve experienced, a small handle on a coffee mug is the WORST!

cork clock from the design gift shop

This Clork (Yes, a Clork!)

As a former copywriter, nothing makes me giggle more than some good wordplay. I love this cork clock (a clork) from The Design Gift Shop. Unique clocks can be so hard to find these days – and with the cork trend gaining momentum (see more of it here), this piece is on-the-money.

You can explore this clork and other goodies from The Design Gift Shop here.

Charlie and Fenton zig zag watercolour tablecloth in blue and pink

Watercolour Table Covering

Tablecloths when I was growing up were so boring. I don’t know if it was the same for you, but I’m certainly relieved that times have changed! Enter this stunning zig zag tablecloth from my friends are Charlie and Fenton. The soft blue and pink tones are just glorious.

caring canary get well soon chemotherapy gift pack hamper

Heartfelt Care Packs

It can be so hard to know what to do when loved ones are sick. You feel so hopeless, don’t you? I love that local brand Caring Canary stock and sell glorious care packages like the one above.

The one above is a chemo care pack, and there are a tonne of other packs in the range for all occasions.

be still quote art print in black and gold from mary and sally

Quality Quote Art

Just this week I did a roundup of the best places to buy quote art online (take a look at that post here). And then I discovered the stunning Mary and Sally; a local brand stocking the chicest quote art around.

I love the ‘Be Still’ one the most. In a crazy, fast world, it’s nice to take a moment to just stop and be still, don’t you think?

See more of the awesome Mary and Sally range here.

    Beautiful wallpaper from Naomi Cleaver. Thanks for showing me there are great options out there. They are dramatic but soft….does that make sense? I live in tropical Darwin. Do you have any knowledge of how wallpaper handles exposure to heat and humidity for 8 months a year.
