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!
I'm a huge fan of vintage decor. I love that a piece has lived a life and has a story to tell. I had been eyeing off Reclaim Newtown for some time for this very reason. Not only is it filled to the brim with homewares, fashion and stationery that I have seen nowhere else, but it also has the added bonus of being owned and operated by the glorious Monica Trapaga - jazz singer and Play School alumni! The store is a collection of her favourite things (and now some of mine, too!).
Granted, Creatives, I've not heard of Saratoga on the NSW Central Coast - but I'm ready to book my train ticket (or chopper flight) ASAP if it means I get to soak up the sun in this combined kitchen and dining room. Belonging to Creative Jill Sparrow, this three-bedroom home is a sun-lovers dream and is decked out with some stunning pieces that make me want to grab at my chest; reminiscent of a daytime soap character when their beau comes back from the grave!
