10 creative finds you never got to see

I was struck down with a cold this week, which meant getting out and about to snap some creative finds was very much off the cards. Thankfully, though, I have an entire vault of photos from my adventures around the traps; which means you get to see 10 very gorgeous finds that never made it onto my usual top seven. On with the show…

1 | I love street art when it’s done well and this piece – that I came across from an adventure in Fitzroy last year – is just amazing. I swear when I purchase a house, I want to find a street artist who can come and create something like this for me on a wall in my backyard. I know graffiti isn’t for everyone, but I love the urban and industrial nature of it. Please let me know if you’re aware of an artist who could do this for me!

decorator dreaming at orson & blake

P1120414

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!

this week’s top seven creative finds

1 | I am addicted to buying cards. So much so that I have a stack in my drawer just waiting for an occasion to roll around. I was in all sorts of fits of ecstasy this week when I got my hands on these mind-blowing cards from TJ Stationery. They’re letterpress ones – printed on 100% cotton paper stock – and I just love how simplistic, playful and charming they are. The Kite and Swing ones are my fave, but there are many more, all with the same sense of love. Too good.

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!

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!

decorator heaven at oz design moore park

P1090953

Where does one start when it comes to describing Oz Design? While it’s been around as long as I have (30 years and still doesn’t look a day over 25!), in recent times it’s multiplied its amazement factor. When I walked into the Moore Park store for my exclusive tour, I almost needed the store manager, Joe, to slap me across the face to wake me out of my design-induced coma; the current range is that phenomenal.

1 | My love affair for Adairs just keeps getting stronger – and these deer cushions confirm it; I love them, I want to marry them, I want to go for long walks on the beach with them. There’s a whole range of bedding featuring these deers, fittingly named the Birch Forest collection. Fact: they’re kind of a must for Autumn (and better still, there’s a Facebook competition running at the moment where you can win a set).

creative finds | this week’s top seven

As my usual Sunday evening/Monday morning creative finds post was late (I was making cushions!), I’ve packed seven glorious finds into this weeks finds post; it’s 100% fat free so you can enjoy without any guilt.

1 | I’m about as fond of beige as I am of Chardonnay, so these pops of colour in cushion form from the amazing Missoni Home are what every couch craving a bright splash needs. I spotted this family in Myer in the Sydney CBD and love the pink and blue pops.

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.
