1 | I couldn’t be happier to see Christmas bibs and bobs out in all the stores. These Santa baubles I spotted in Bed Bath N’ Table were perhaps the cutest from the stack of decorations they’re currently selling. Christmas brings the little kid out in me and these baubles are so playful – I want to overhaul my colour scheme with these bad boys immediately!

I do love me a local store tour – you know that – but I am mindful of the fact that not all of you Creatives are in Sydney. So, lovers of an online shop – this one’s for you! With my colour obsession showing no signs of slowing down, I present six of my fave online finds for the home – all in high velocity hues. Some arty, some practical, but all definitely bright and beautiful.

adding some colour to my sandwiches

P1120661

Working in an office has given me great insight into what one should never bring into work for lunch. Parmesan cheese is something best left to enjoy at home, for example. A sandwich on the other hand, you can never go wrong with (ok, unless it’s curried egg. Again, best left for a special night in… alone).

styling my office with howards storage world

P1120291

I’m not good with organisation – I’m big enough to admit it. My partner often asks me where I put something and is met with a blank face as I try to figure out how I can dodge the truth; that the item in question was placed somewhere he or I will never locate. But with a little help from Howards Storage World, all that is about to change (I promise!).

this week’s top seven creative finds

1 | Sunday’s wet weather did not stop me from getting out to scout for creative finds. Top3 by Design rewarded me for my troubles with the discovery of these amazing Gascoigne & King candles. These luxury soy candles come in a variety of scents, but the Figue has to be my fave for its timeless, earthy fragrance. Once you sniff these bad boys you’ll be hooked. I recommend ordering an intervention in advance!

my top five market picks for a colourful kitchen

It’s no secret that I have a small aversion to a beige colour scheme. My kitchen lends itself to much the same aversion. If there’s one space you can splash out and be a little daring, it’s this room! So while things might be a little dreary outside this Autumn, get a little bright and happy with these market picks (and do let me know what you love).

1 | Easter is just around the corner and Bed Bath ‘N’ Table is inundated with a range of stock that is worthy of diving into (in a purely figuratively way, of course). These rabbits, complete with their own little egg holder, are beyond cute. I’m hoping to get back there soon to photography the entire range so you can see it in all its glory!

creative finds | this weekend’s (supa centre) top five

The Australia day long weekend just occurred Down Under and despite the wet weather, herds of people hit the shops. I (foolishly?) was one of them. But I had to go scope out what all the sales fuss was about at the Supa Centa Moore Park. Who else can you rely on to bring you this weekend’s top five?

1 | This little piggy definitely went to market! Howards Storage World stocks these very cute rubber piggy banks. The great honking snout comes right off so you can dip into your savings when you’re down to your last glass of wine (I didn’t say that). There are cow versions too – and both come in an array of colours – so you can add some whimsy and playfulness to even the most adult home.
