I do love me a local store tour – you know that – but I am mindful of the fact that not all of you Creatives are in Sydney. So, lovers of an online shop – this one’s for you! With my colour obsession showing no signs of slowing down, I present six of my fave online finds for the home – all in high velocity hues. Some arty, some practical, but all definitely bright and beautiful.

Forget about the warm weather – Spring is all about gorgeous new releases like these beauties from Freedom’s dinnerware collection. I got a peak into some of the pieces at last week’s Freedom Summer Launch – and just got these fresh pics hot off the press and styled to all new levels of perfection.  Which of the three sets is your favourite?

fun in the sun at the freedom summer launch

I must say, getting a sneak peak at my favourite things in the world (that’s homewares) really is one of the major perks of being a blogger. When Freedom invited me to take a look at their soon-to-be-released tableware range on Wednesday, it was on like Donkey Kong! Not only did I get to see some of their stunning new pieces, but I also got a look-in on their Christmas wares as well. It was all rather dreamy!

Spring is on the way, Creatives! And while others await the opportunity to hit the beach, I just want to get my hands on new tableware ranges like this one from Villeroy & Boch. Let me introduce you to Lina; she’s bright, she’s bold and she’s the perfect example of what happens when you mix modern and vintage design.

inside the simply beautiful papaya, mosman

P1120803

When the team from Papaya invited me for an exclusive tour of their Mosman store last week, it’s safe to say I was a little beside myself. I’ve been a longtime fan of the brand, always rather fond of their contemporary designs and use of raw materials. When I stepped into the interior of this North Sydney oasis, it was like being transported into another universe, where I lost my mind in the best way possible and am not certain I have it back yet.

this week’s top seven creative finds

P1110933

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!

a rainbow of colour at opus design co, paddington

P1100909

You know you’re a home decor addict when your friends send you pictures of the inside of homewares stores, saying “you have to check out this place”. That’s exactly what happened with Opus Design Co; my friend Jess shot me a photo of the inside of the store via her iPhone and as soon as I got the chance I ran in there to take it all in. It’s like a decorative rainbow exploded, in the most awe-inspiring way possible!

simplicity and sophistication at country road

P1110115

It takes quite a store to lure me away from using bright colours in my home. But only moments into my snap-filled store tour of Country Road in Bondi Junction, I felt compelled to call my partner, tell him the skip was pulling up outside at any given moment and prepare him for yet another complete home overhaul. You know, a  leave nothing behind scenario. This is what I call the CRE (Country Road effect) – and boy had I been struck down with it.
