Well it is time to indulge in some continuous chocolate eating so Hermit will be taking a wee break over Easter to deal with the impending food comas and hypo toddlers! Wishing you all a safe and happy Easter and we will see you back here in a couple of weeks.
Taking inspiration from the Easter bunny we leave you with this particularly Eastery (not sure that is even a word, but you get my gist) note. I bring you the adorable, undeniable cuteness of Miffy in lamp form. Isn’t she the best?! Created by Mr Maria, Miffy is available in three forms, seated in XL or small and floating on a cloud. To double the cute factor you could also purchase her dog Snuffy! My little girl would adore these!
If you are looking for some items that are classic, timeless and durable to add to your kitchen than look no further then the fabulous Falcon Enamelware range.
These iconic products have been baking mouth-watering meals since the 1920s! Traditionally they were only available in that classic white and navy combo but now Falcon has plans to extend the colour range starting with a brilliant red. These pieces will last the test of time, you can use them in the oven or on the stove top, hell, you can bring them camping if you wish! Picnics, parties or just everyday meals this range is a staple for any kitchen and gains extra brownie points for being dishwasher safe (We ALL love that !)
A recommended addition to any home and a true design classic.
Readily available through many stores worldwide, for Aussies I found Peters of Kensington to have the best prices :)
Often on the blog I feature hand-made items of beautiful quality but generally this comes with a hefty price tag, this is due to the time needed to create items by hand compared to commercially made goods pumped out of machines. I know price can be a sticking point with many of us and that many items I feature will require a wee bit of saving for before they can become a treasured addition to your home.
So today I am very happy to share with you some beautiful pillowcases from new Aussie label The Bedroom Society that are not only screen printed by hand but also very affordable. Check out the super cute prints and patterns that Lauren has created in her debut range of pillow cases, LOVE!!Watermelons, pineapples, stripes, polka dots and chevron, this range has little something to please all ages.
The perfect addition to your basic plain colour sheet sheets and doona covers, The Bedroom Society pillow cases are a fun way to brighten up your bedroom with the latest of trends without spending a fortune. A set of two cotton pillow cases will set you back a mere $49 and are available to purchase through I Love Linen.
The watermelons have stolen my heart, whats your fave?
These beautiful hand-made tiles came across my desk yesterday and I’m a little in love!
Tiles of Ezra is the creative collaboration between interior architect Georgia Ezra and her sister Micaela Ezra, a NYC designer. Their range consists of ethnic patterns and styles of the Mexican culture and embody the earthy, handmade qualities of the local artisans. Seeing a gap in the Australia market for this unique type of tile, Tiles of Ezra is bringing an extensive range to our shores which includes traditional Mexican patterns as well as contemporary versions.
My favourites are the terracotta tiles from the Clay Collective range, I can just picture them making a completely amazing feature in someone’s home. Check out some of the Ezra patterns below to see how impressive various tiles from the collection look combined to create a rustic pattern. Don’t forget to check their website to view all the other collections too!
I think this will be a very exciting addition to the Australian market for architects, designers and home renovators!
Feeling a little bit kooky and fun today so thought I would share with you guys these super adorable dog houses made by Jumahl of Strictly For The Birds in the shape of retro campervans! THE best right?!
Based on the classic shapes and colour combinations of the über cool 40s and 50s vintage campers, this is a dog house no one would mind being sent too! Plus there is a mini bird house version too, um adorable! Unfortunately for us Aussies, these creations are only available to the US market but you never know, campervans are made to travel and maybe, just maybe, if a retailer sees this post they may grace our shores soon! Fingers crossed :)
