1 | I scored this bunny when I attended last week’s TheHome Spring Launch and finally gave him a home this weekend on my partner’s desk. I’m yet to name him, but I’ve concluded that he’s a bit of a ladies man who doesn’t mind a bit of a shandy here and there. Rather fitting then that I placed him beside my Pigeon & Weasel candle; he feels right at home here!

this week’s top seven creative finds

1 | I know, I know, my top find features garbage bins. But, those aside, how amazing is this Marilyn Monroe street art – complete with a set of pearly white vamp chompers? I spotted this graffiti in Kings Cross when I was on the way to TheHome Spring Launch this week and had to take a snap. Street art tends to divide people but I am definitely all for it when it’s done well.

Sometimes you see decor that makes your heart skip a beat (and leaves you wondering how far away the medics are should you need resuscitation). This scenario happened to me when I attended TheHome Spring Launch yesterday. The Gazebo Wine Garden was the venue for this afternoon high tea and the styling work from Marj Silva (below), Emma Blomfield and the team at TheHome was truly something spectacular.

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!

Self-confessed design nerd Emma Blomfield works not only as a stylist for her own company, Nest Designs, but as a homewares buyer too. “I see all the products before they are released to the stores, so I can see what trends are coming out”. Jealousy alert! I caught up with this very talented lady – and put my envy aside for just a moment – to learn more about her work, home style and the trends that make her heart race the most.

news just in: whites and brights do mix

If it’s one thing Mumma Creative has been telling me for years, it’s that brights and whites don’t mix. While this is of course true when it comes to washing your clothes (if I find one more pink shirt!) the same cannot be said for home decor.

my top five market picks for a colourful kitchen

It’s no secret that I have a small aversion to a beige colour scheme. My kitchen lends itself to much the same aversion. If there’s one space you can splash out and be a little daring, it’s this room! So while things might be a little dreary outside this Autumn, get a little bright and happy with these market picks (and do let me know what you love).

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.
