flower lovin’ at florals by silva

IMG_4517

I was taken aback last week when I popped into The Grounds of Alexandria for a coffee and a wander about. I hadn’t realised that there was a florist there (or perhaps I had just been in when this section of the grounds was closed). Needless to say, it was a marvellous discovery and I whipped out my camera to capture some of the floral phenomenon at Florals by Silva.

a flower phenomenon at garlands, surry hills

P1120137

I really am a bad Sydney-sider. I continue to write blog posts that start with a “I can’t believe this place has been under my nose the entire time” type vibe. It’s sad but it’s true, and it happened to me once again recently as I was strolling down Bourke Street in Surry Hills and saw the flora outside Garlands calling my name. I stopped for a moment, ensured my heart was still beating and high-tailed it in there – camera in hand, as always.

There are five to choose from so lock and load your choice and let me know which is you!

I love their ban on floral designs and their tongue-in-cheek approach. They have a whole world of varying text-clad tea towels, but this one has to be my favourite – love the colours!

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 Рclustered together to make a faux table Рwere 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!
