I love reading about trends. I love it when forecasters predict what's coming up, I love seeing them hit stores and I love seeing how people interpret them in their homes.It's the latter category that often intrigues me most. It's all very good and well for a forecaster to tell us that a Nordic theme is on the way, for example, but it doesn't always mean we want to adopt the look.
Earlier this year I had the pleasure of attending Temple & Webster's Emerging Designer Awards showcase, which featured a slew of amazing creatives and their work. The talented Coco Reynolds took home the People's Choice Awards for her Bright Beads Pendant
Her iconic designs are sprawled across bedding, homewares, iPhone cases and a slew of other decor delights; it was only a matter of time before Florence Broadhurst set her sights on travel goods. Get your hands on some of these glorious designer goodies ASAP if not sooner, I say!
You know how food always tastes better when someone else makes it for you? That's kinda how I feel about fair-trade endorsed homewares. There's a feelgood factor to decorating your home with such items - and it doesn't hurt when they look as good as the storage solutions in today's post, either!
It's tough being a renter at times. Sure, the invention of the 3M hook was possibly the most amazing moment of my decorating life, but it still left my love for wallpaper completely unrequited. Thankfully, the wall decal has arrived to make my interior dreams come true. And the ones in today's post can be nabbed right now.
These industry movers and shakers spend their days immersed in styling, homewares, magazines and interiors, but what are they doing regarding to their own festive celebrations? I caught up with these six style makers to get their take on the silly season and have them share some Christmas styling ideas of their own.
Rugs are the new cushions if you ask me; they're so affordable nowadays that you can swap them around at a moment's notice when you tire of your old one (unlike when they swapped old Pippa for new Pippa on Home and Away - that was just too big a change for me to handle). The added bonus with smaller, lightweight rugs like the ones above is that you can layer them for a relaxed and casual vibe that still packs a visual punch (and you can score them at a discounted price - read on!)
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!
