In my recent appearance in Real Living mag (check out the spread here), I mentioned that I would love to spend time with the design team at Marimekko. I thought it high time, then, that I show you some of their work in case you weren't familiar with the Finnish design powerhouse.
Brand new website The Design Keeper showcases unique homewares and fashion pieces with strong design elements and understated elegance. I spoke to Director (and fellow ISCD graduate) Anne-Maree Mammoliti about establishing the store, its ethos and what's coming up for the brand!
I think I need to rename Real Rooms to 'Rooms that Make me Weep with Joy'. This latest instalment, which belongs to graphic designer Amber Stapff, is a Scandi wonderland with a minimalistic and calming vibe. You can totally see the designer at play in this space. And I have to admit, it's making me question my love of colour (please do not tell colour I said that!).
When the team from Papaya invited me for an exclusive tour of their Mosman store last week, it's safe to say I was a little beside myself. I've been a longtime fan of the brand, always rather fond of their contemporary designs and use of raw materials. When I stepped into the interior of this North Sydney oasis, it was like being transported into another universe, where I lost my mind in the best way possible and am not certain I have it back yet.
