I love supporting local Creatives, but one must acknowledge the fab things our brothers from another mother are doing over in New Zealand. The decor gods listened to my cries for stunning imagery this week as these snaps from new Auckland store, Indie Home Collective, hit my inbox. If you’re a lover of earthy, eclectic or industrial homewares, have your bib at the ready as we begin the drool-fest. If someone can fly these pieces over to me on the red eye it would be very much appreciated!

I love nothing more than connecting with local Creatives, so I was beyond chuffed when In the Cove‘s Jacky Barker invited me for a tour of the most marvellous homewares stores Lane Cove has to offer. In the space of a few hours we managed to squeeze in many gasp-worthy moments across three great stores – each of which was uniquely different from the other!

I love to bag a bargain. And when there’s a local, handmade find in the mix, I’m like a kid in a candy store.

What I uncovered on my adventure was a stack of local Creatives who’ve made some fabulous homewares and accessories (some of which you’ve seen on the blog before). On with my photo diary from this very fabulous evening!

numbers in a box frame = personalised art

P1060331

I love to personalise, because let’s face it; anyone can go out to the stores and buy a mass-produced piece of art (snore!). If it’s one design trend I am all over like a rash, it’s the concept of making your space truly one of a kind by using sentimental moments from your own life to really carve out your home’s identity. Case in point: putting numbers in a box frame to commemorate those special occasions!

the gorgeous humble beginnings in randwick

There’s a homewares store I’ve been going to for years now, every time a birthday rolls around and I want to present a gift to someone that oozes heart and warmth; it’s called Humble Beginnings and it’s quite possibly my favourite homeswares store (and ok – you got me – sometimes I go there when there are no upcoming birthdays and I just want a wow moment!).
