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.
I love a bit of quirk when it comes to the decor pieces I have in my home. So when I laid eyes upon these concrete skull lamps, it only made sense that I first have heart palpitations over them and then share them with you - along with the story of how they're made by designer Jesse Ferrino.
1 | I had my socks rocked off this week when I got my hands on this amazing trio of concrete candle holders from Melbourne company Sarai Homewares. Available in a range of colours - including neon - these three holders are made and set in recycled moulds, which is all rather environmentally friendly! The company also stocks my other love - cushions - and more!
I half wanted to smile and half wanted to cry when I saw this photo hit my inbox. Smile because this Real Room from the holiday home of Lani Kirpichnikov is utterly, utterly stunning - and cry because I am so filled with jealousy right now (as I sit with my bar heater on) that I'm practically ready to release my own cologne, TLC: Envy. Just look at this fiery phenomenon; it's amazing!
