I love supporting local Creatives, but one must acknowledge the fab things our brothers from another mother are doing over in New Zealand. The decor gods listened to my cries for stunning imagery this week as these New Zealand homewares snaps from new Auckland store, Indie Home Collective, hit my inbox. If you're a lover of earthy, eclectic or industrial decor, have your bib at the ready as we begin the drool-fest. If someone can fly these pieces over to me on the red eye it would be very much appreciated!
Where does one start when it comes to describing Oz Design? While it's been around as long as I have (30 years and still doesn't look a day over 25!), in recent times it's multiplied its amazement factor. When I walked into the Moore Park store for my exclusive tour, I almost needed the store manager, Joe, to slap me across the face to wake me out of my design-induced coma; the current range is that phenomenal.
There's a homewares store I've been going to for years now, every time a birthday rolls around and I want to present a gift to someone that oozes heart and warmth; it's called Humble Beginnings and it's quite possibly my favourite homeswares store (and ok - you got me - sometimes I go there when there are no upcoming birthdays and I just want a wow moment!).
Some books are your coffee table books (you know - you look at the pictures but you've never read a word in there) and others are ones you deem a little more educational because they offer actual ideas to make your home amazing. This book by Holly Becker and Joanna Copestick is just that; a practical source of inspiration from some of the globe's top decorators!
