1 | You may call it a rusty old bird cage, but I call this beauty – that I snapped at Halchemy Design in Newtown – the things vintage dreams are made of. I absolutely adore this sort of vibe and would love to pop a few giant candles in this gem for a splash of old-world-meets-new. The little bird they’ve perched inside just caps off this piece wonderfully, as does the subtle blue tones that are peeking through the rust. Are you a fan?

which-are-you-wednesday: bedding

I think bedding is one of those things you don’t fully appreciate the importance of until you sleep in something of quality. This happened to me recently when my parents purchased me a winter quilt. Good Lord it is magical. It inspired this week’s Which-are-you-Wednesday: Bedding! I actually have one of the below sets. Let’s see if you pick it as your fave!

I call this one BRIGHT BOHO because it reminds me of the store, Tree of Life. I also happen to absolutely adore that purple crochet throw and the patterns on those pillows are to die for!

giftware nirvana at follow store surry hills

P1100397

I know I say this every time I do a store tour, but Follow Store in Surry Hills really is my favourite one so far – for real! I wanted to have a movie moment just minutes into the experience and yell “charge it to my card and have it delivered”. I very well would have if I wasn’t concerned the transaction would decline. But really, there’s something special about Follow and it truly struck a chord with me. It’s a giftware paradise and I must now alert my friends; all future gifts will be coming from Follow.

i’m reading happy home by charlotte hedeman gueniau

P1100275

I thought I was a fan of colour and extremely adverse to the use of beige until I picked up Happy Home by the founder of Danish homewares company RICE, Charlotte Hedeman Gueniau. It clearly states from the get-go that not all Danish design is about cool and calm interiors and I must admit, the whole ethos of the book being fun, colour and enjoyment speaks to me like the new Pope speaks to the man upstairs (and I sometimes talk back)!

creative finds | this weekend’s top five

P1090556

1 | This week I have been stressing over how to decorate my new office / blog area / craft corner. These are the big issues that keep me up at night! I was wandering around Typo and spotted these metal crates; they’re mini and marvellous and gave me a good starting point for the rest of the decorating process. The office pics will be up soon but the colour combo in the pic above gives you a nice preview!

things i’ve learnt about stylist mason browne

7thwonder 4

Sydney stylist Mason Browne is the ultimate slashie; with a career that spans 14 years in the entertainment and hospitality industries, the self confessed Instagram addict and now-stylist – among other roles in writing and production design – has certainly had his finger in many pies. Drawing inspiration from just about everywhere, he finds solace in books when he’s in a rutt. “There is nothing better… just grab a heap of really heavy art, design, fashion and photography books, camp out and just absorb the imagery”. Here’s a few more things I learnt about this man about town.
