If you’re a candle addict like me, then you’re always on the hunt for the next high; a fresh and interesting candle that’ll take you to a whole new level of nostril nirvana. That’s what I’m serving up in today’s post, Creatives, as I introduce you to Melbourne candle brand You Me and Bones.
A few weeks back, I showcased the colour trends that are big in Autumn decorating for 2016. In this post, we're taking a look at the textures, patterns and scents you can rock in your home now that the weather is getting cooler (and Lordy am I elated that summer has come to an end!).
This week's Conversation Series post detailed how much I adore Christmas. It also revealed that it never used to be this way - and that the festive season used to stress me out like you wouldn't believe (you can read the full post here).Part of that stress was due to Christmas shopping; not knowing what to get, going into stores without a game plan or budget, and having to end up stuck at the shops on Christmas Eve.
About this time of the year, each year, I start nesting. You know how pregnant women tend to do that when the baby is about to arrive? I do it about six weeks before Christmas hits.As an absolute festive nutter, Christmas ideas start bubbling away early November, as I think about how I'll decorate my apartment for the silly season.
Why was no-one making trendy looking beeswax candles?
That’s the question that pushed local creative Erin Gilbert to begin working on her very own candle brand; Honey & Glow.
I was speaking to someone the other day who declared that concrete homewares were on the way out. Internally, I went through a series of emotions (almost like the 12 stages of grief). I felt angry, sad, shocked, dismayed and of course, it ended in denial. In fact, I'm so far in denial that I'm going to outrightly declare that concrete homewares are still 100% on trend - and with no signs of going away.
It’s safe to say that Mr Jason Grant is taking over the world. Not only is the stylist and author one of the most popular creatives in the country, but his recent candle collaboration with the Palm Beach Collection allows him to add product designer to his CV, too.
