I love the freshness white and brights bring to homewares and Spring is certainly the time to celebrate the union of these colours. While we’re on the topic of celebrations, I’m toasting kikki.K for releasing this gorgeous new homewares collection, Svenska Hem, which takes the brand a step further in its glorious world domination. In stunning yellow, pink and minty shades, the new collection is all about crockery and kitchenware – and makes for distinctly colourful Spring entertaining.

1 | It was Mumma Creatives 60th birthday on Saturday, so I pulled my craft box out (yes, I am a 31 year old man with a craft box!) and made some personalised gift tags using paint card samples from Bunnings. I love using these cards because the range of colours is just amazing. With the help of a balloon-shaped hole punch I got from Lincraft, I made my own little gift tags that are very one-of-a-kind. What do you think?

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!

1 | I saw this polka dot Home Republic bedspread on the Adairs website on Friday and high-tailed it to the Supa Centa Moore Park on Saturday to grab this bad boy. I just love how happy it is. The pic above is a media image, sadly, but once I have it on my bed and my side tables are decked out appropriately you’ll see full pics. Side note; the underside is aqua. Too good!

my top five market picks for a cosy autumn

Winter is but a few months away and this past week in Sydney has been rain-filled and chilly. For me, that means a state of unadulterated bliss, as I love everything about Autumn. Ok, the death of daylight savings was not welcomed, but I adore the chance to rug up, get the fingerless gloves on, eat like it’s going out of style and generally hibernate. Here are my five market picks to make that chill a little bit cuter.
