While the people of Sydney were going gaga over Mardi Gras this weekend, I was – predictable – caught up in my very own parade, across local homewares stores!
1 | Granted, I’m not huge on orange, but there’s something kinda breathtaking about these awesome mine and yours Home Republic text pillow covers from Adairs; the clouds, the chevron back pillows, the pop of aqua. It’s the most playful bed I’ve seen in a while and I’m big enough to admit that I want to burn my current bedspread so I have a valid reason to get this one.
2 | I spotted this cute cluster of herbs outside Daisy’s Oasis in Darlinghurst when I was on the wander to have a cheeky drink. The idea of starting my own herb garden has been playing on my mind for a while – and I think Daisy’s litte arrangement has sealed the deal (sure, I have no idea if herbs grown in Autumn but I am willing to investigate)!
3 | My bird ornament obsession has been shafted for the moment now that I’m completely fixated on making cushions. My sewing machine is a magical contraption and these three fabrics – purchased from Spotlight – are the next instalment on the creative journey. I even have an order in from my mother-in-law (I chose the red fabric for her), so I must be doing something right!
4 | I had another one of those moments when I spotted this cushion in Freedom, where I almost pushed old ladies and children over in a state of pure ecstasy to get to it. Lord knows I love all things UK and this Trooping the Colour cushion is perfect for the red colour scheme with hints of blue and yellow I currently have going on in my living room. It’s my fave purchase in recent months.
5 | Clean up in isle four – a grown man just wet himself over bird bowls! Ok, so that didn’t quite happen, but get a load of these amazing bowls from Freedom. The black and pink colour pop would be a welcome surprise in any dining scenario. The range also spans across plates as well so you can grab the entire collection. Just beyond.
6 | I remember the days where I got dragged to Flower Power as a child (what a fool I was not to take in its amazement). These days, it’s so much more than just wandering for plants and getting an ice cream if I behaved myself. Now, Flower Power is a fully fledged go-to destination for amazing homewares like these. Hello coral! If you’re a fan of well thought-out decor, Flower Power needs to be in your GPS!
