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 received some news over the weekend that delighted me to no end. My new fave store – Orson & Blake – is staying at the Supa Centa in Moore Park! I have been in and out of the store a few times since it landed a couple of months ago and this time around I took my camera to snap their unique wares. It’s tribal, it’s eclectic and it evokes a lovely sense of relaxed luxury; everything a homeswares lover could ever want!
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!
I’ve gone through more mugs than I have underwear over the years, because stores continue to churn them out at lightening speed. I think a mug says a lot about who are you. I was using a Bold and the Beautiful mug at work for a while. I hope everyone understood the irony. It was five dollars from Coles, so it seemed foolish not to grab it. But I digress. Onto this week’s which-are-you-Wednesday: mugs!
ABOVE: The Global Colour mug has a distinctive Bollywood feel. Bright, bold and anything but boring, they add a sense of adventure to you sip! (Stockist: The Aparttment).
1 | It’s no secret that I pretty much need coffee drip-fed to me on a daily basis (is four coffees too many?), so when I spotted these amazing Lavazza A Modo Mio machines at Myer at the weekend I went a little batty with excitement. I’m in love with the colourful sheen on these bad boys and the blue and green shades have to be my favourite. Check out their website for the full colour range!
I am a colour fiend – I can’t help it. But if it’s one thing I wish I had the restraint to do, it’s work a monochrome colour palette in my home. I see black and white furniture, crockery, soft furnishings and more in stores and my heart flutters a little. There’s something so simplistic about this theme. Here’s a little inspiration from my time spent swooning toward these colours.
1 | I am not sure what you call an Easter version of Kris Kringle, but my office is doing one this week and I was so freakin’ excited to get my hands on one of these awesome paper bags – complete with bunny stamp and pom pom – at Paper2 in Surry Hills. I always say the presentation is just as important as the present itself, so once I fill mine with oodles of chocolate I certainly hope the recipient enjoys it!
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!
