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!
It's safe to say that nothing will keep me away from my love of styling. When I was offered the chance to attend the Temple & Webster styling workshop at the International School of Colour and Design on Saturday, not even the wet and wild Sydney weather could hold me back. Not only did I walk away with the tools to complete my living room look, but I got to meet Temple & Webster superstar (and my personal interiors icons) Karen McCartney. Cue the crazy fan moment!
This week saw me hit the Moore Park Supa Centa, snapping loads of home and decor goodies. I also discovered gorgeous goodies outside of the centre too. Which one is your fave?1 | I am addicted to buying cards. So much so that I have a stack in my drawer just waiting for an occasion to roll around. I was in all sorts of fits of ecstasy this week when I got my hands on these mind-blowing cards from TJ Stationery. They're letterpress ones - printed on 100% cotton paper stock - and I just love how simplistic, playful and charming they are. The Kite and Swing ones are my fave, but there are many more, all with the same sense of love. Too good.
I was eagerly awaiting the launch of A Place Called Home by Sydney stylist Mr Jason Grant for quite a while - and for many reasons. Firstly, how refreshing to see a home decor book my a male! Secondly, I had seen the front cover of the book splashed over social media and it alone had spoken to me (I have that storage box, I love decorating with red and I adore using pegs to display photos!) Lastly, he's uniquely Australian; what's not to love about a local lad whose spent years working with popular magazines, now releasing a book that chronicles his favourite things?
Some books you buy for craft ideas, some books you buy for a bit of DIY inspiration and some books - like 82 Modern Style Ideas to Create at Home from Inside Out magazine - you buy because it covers both bases (and then some)!
