Nothing gives me pangs of joy and rapture more than discovering a new homewares brand. When that brand is Aussie, when its products are packed with colour, and when the creator is a Melbournian, my happiness level reaches fever-pitch.
There’s nothing better than discovering an artist whose work you just know is going to make major waves across the country. That’s what’s in store in today’s post, Creatives, as you get to know the very talented Carley Brady.
If you're a colour lover and you adore supporting local, the homewares from this Aussie brand are going to cause you some serious heart palpitations (in the best way possible, of course!).
Limited edition art normally comes with the sort of price tag you can't afford without a personal loan. But in the case of local brand Okay Luna, the ladies behind the art set out to change that mindset from the get-go.
I’ve made a few candles in my time at home and while it may be fun and games to create a couple for yourself, turning that passion into a fully-fledged business is an epic undertaking.
It’s not for the faint hearted, that’s for sure, and it’s something that - like any small business venture - takes loads of determination and a lot of guts.
When I spoke to Inside Out stylists a few weeks back on the blog, I was so relieved to hear that marble was still a trend they were fully behind. I love it, I live for it and I don’t see it going away anytime soon either.
I image that the dynamic duo behind new Aussie brand Allegra Stone must be breathing a similar sigh of relief. They have just, after all, launched their new business; specialising in the most amazing marble pieces for the home.
The replica furniture debate shows no signs of slowing down, encouraging those of us who sit on the fence (myself included), to think a little more about which camp they sit it. Are we adamantly against the idea of replicas or are we completely OK with this seemingly increasing design trend?
It will come as no shock to you that The Life Creative adores local design. We've been championing it on the blog for years now, and Etsy is one place we draw endless inspiration from. There's so much Aussie talent there and you need to take a look at it as soon as humanly possible (check out this post on concrete decor that's filled with Etsy finds).
