get a load of these terracotta treasures

nicholas agency-1

There’s simply no denying the fact that I’m a bit obsessed with colour. Yes, I understand and have even posted about the fact that beige can be beautiful – and I fully appreciate the swoon-worthy qualities that a Scandi scheme possesses. But for me, dear Creatives, it’s all about a high-intensity hues. You can see why I was delighted to feast my eyes on these Terracotta Treasures then!

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).

snapping the beauty at terrace outdoor living

P1110376

I first came across Terrace Outdoor Living courtesy of their pop-up store at the Supa Centre Moore Park. I was a little saddened to hear they were closing down until I realised their flagship store in Woollahra housed everything that their pop-up store did – and then some! I took to this Eastern Suburbs haven for all this green and outdoors and snapped my fave pieces!

1 | I spotted these amazing apple pendants on the Modflowers blog this week and I’m absolutely smitten with them. The apples are hand crafted, while the fabric is vintage and sourced by Modflowers’ creator Sharon Everest. They’re in short supply at the moment but keep your eyes peeled for upcoming releases – and scope out Sharon’s Etsy store for some very happy fabric creations!

the kikki k maja and max collection

Maja & Max 2

I’ve said it numerous times; I have one foot in ‘crazy cat lady’ territory and the other is about to step in at any given moment. Being an owner of (or slave to) two cats has definitely impacted on my interior decorating choices and I am always on the lookout for cute cat accessories for my home. It was a glorious twist of fate, then, that Kikki K has just released a dog and cat collection titled Maja and Max – The Best of Friends.

industrial dream in the clock hotel’s new courtyard

P1100615

It’s safe to say I’ve been going to The Clock Hotel for many years. In fact, my partner and I had our second date there (cue the dreamy, romantic music), so it’s more than cemented itself as one of Surry Hills’ definitive go-to destinations for not only myself but my circle, too. For a long time, locals knew that an arvo at The Clock was all about the upstairs balcony. But hold the phones, creatives, because the downstairs area has had a major revamp and it’s an industrial dream I never want to leave (what balcony?!).

greenery, gold and giggles at garden life redfern

P1100545

I’ve always thought that the garden should be a little out of control, a bit untamed, a tad random and not too thought-out. I had never considered though – until my trip to Garden Life in Redfern – that it could also be a place for humour and fun. Needless to say, after hitting this Cleveland Street haven and eyeing off their wares, I am well and truly eager to make the garden a giggle-fest!

creative finds | this easter weekend’s top seven

Now I’m never one to complain about a four day weekend, but I was gutted to discover that so many homewares stores were closed (first world problem!). Not that it slowed me down entirely; I just packed a lot into the two days the stores were trading and got to a few bars in-between (all for research, you see).

1 | The Clock Hotel just underwent a killer renovation and I had to go to scope out the new-and-improved decor (it had nothing to do with wanting a wine!). These mind-blowing orange and teal industrial stools – clustered together to make a faux table – were just too good and reminded me of my industrial coffee table. I have an entire tour of the hot and happening new Clock coming up this week!

the kikki K enjoy the little things collection

It’s no secret that I’ve been obsessed with kikki K since I first wandered into the store about eight years ago. And while I’ve had a few gasp-worthy moments over their recent happiness range, I think I’ve found a new nirvana – the enjoy the litte things collection!

creative finds | this weekend’s top six

While the people of Sydney were going gaga over Mardi Gras this weekend, I was – predictable – caught up in my very own parade, across  local homewares stores!

1 | Granted, I’m not huge on orange, but there’s something kinda breathtaking about these awesome mine and yours Home Republic text pillow covers from Adairs; the clouds, the chevron back pillows, the pop of aqua. It’s the most playful bed I’ve seen in a while and I’m big enough to admit that I want to burn my current bedspread so I have a valid reason to get this one.
