I find it pretty amazing when people use paper in any way other than writing on it.
Origami is one of the most fascinating arts, the creations they can make by just folds in the paper is truly awe-inspiring and has fascinated people for centuries. So what other creative paper goods are out there in the world of homewares? Tune in this week to find out!

Inspired by this weeks The Hermitage, I thought a wee bit of pinspiration was in order to end the week!
I have selected some gorgeous images that really display the variety of ways wood can be used in the home, and the various effects it can create. See how the natural colours and textures of wood can add warmth and interest to your home. From Scandi to Rustic, I think I have covered all tastes and styles!
Herringbone parquetry is still my number one obsession… what style do you love the best?

The Eva Solo Showcase, designed by Claus Jensen and Henrik Holbaek, is a beautiful design which allows you to display precious items in the protection of a glass dome.
I love this concept because it is a piece that can be constantly changed and updated to create a stunning visual display in your home. You can theme the contents to match your decor, to celebrate important events, special holidays or just to house those delicate keepsakes.
Both my children are young and whenever we go for walks together they love to find interesting things that they gift to me. Wouldn’t they get the biggest kick out of seeing these precious treasures displayed with pride in the Eva Solo Showcase. Because sometimes the most precious gifts are those without a price tag!
Australian residents can start their collection by contacting Top3 by Design. (Same day delivery is available for many Sydney Postcodes!)
No, your eyes aren’t deceiving you, Hermit is back!
