Kitchen Kudos

In need of some new kitchen and dining accessories? Here are some fab items I have been lusting over recently…

01_RabbitTrap

Small Share Platters by Rabbit Trap Timber – $65

This Aussie company hails from The Southern Highlands in NSW and everything they make is from recycled timbers. Too much loveliness, check them out for sure.

02_SempliCupa-Rocks by Sempli – $50 Set of Two

There is a complete range of glassware including various sizes and carafes. Wooden carry Trays are also included with some of the glasses to support their unique shape.

03_Norm_GrinderMenu Bottle Grinder by Norm Architect dk – available in Australia through Top3 by Design – Large Single $109 or Small Double set $129

Minimal style grinder which has been cleverly designed in reverse so that the only time the contents fall out is when you are actually grinding. No more shelf spillages! Love this idea.

04_Kink_Vinegar

KINK Vinegar Bottle by Deb Jones / Jam Factory – $95

Love the unique little bend in the glass of this bottle, a cute character piece with function. Available in a range of colours. Complement with the matching KINK Oil Bottle $125

Blacklist for Kids

Brand new online is the Blacklist for Kids collection and I am super in love with it! Classic Blacklist typography and cute graphics combined in a series of prints, wall flags and cushions. Check out some images from the collection below and click through to their website for pricing and availability.

The new collection In Love We Trust also launches today and I desperately want the Paradise print! Golly gosh, how nice is it…

Budgie Smuggler

Have you discovered the work of artist Anya Brock yet?

I am completely smitten with her budgie series! The beautifully colourful works are painted with loads of texture, paint drips and expressive dots (So up my alley!). They are so bright that they really pop on the canvas and would liven up any wall guaranteed.

Her work is available in many forms too, everything from original Acrylic on canvas pieces through to prints, trays and plates. The original works are very well priced for artworks but I just love that the budgie plates only cost a mere $20! Crazy! You could easily mount these on your wall if your budget and space limitations didn’t allow for one of the bigger pieces.

If you love what you see, check out Anya’s website for her full range which covers many different animals, girls and geometric prints.

Cross my Heart

How great are these Metal Wall cabinets from Collected by LeAnn Yare?

They are available in either a cross or heart design both of which measure 43 x 12 x 43cm. They would make a really cool wall sculpture, adding a little design edge to any room with the added bonus of hidden storage. The cabinets have hinged doors that concealed the interior shelving, perfect for hiding away treasures, valuables or even medicines! Available in a high gloss finish in white, yellow or tangerine for the crosses or a pretty pink for the hearts.

I believe they are selling like hotcakes so rush on over to Collected to secure yours!

Rugged and Exotic

Although we are heading into the cooler season here I am grasping onto the summer lifestyle and loving the thought of picnics, relaxing outdoors with plenty of nibbles (and wine!) and the company of some good friends.

And who better to invite to the party than the Fatboy Picnic Lounge! This huge oversized picnic rug looks more like an expensive Persian Rug and is guaranteed to up the ante at your next picnic. It is a generous size of 82 x 107 inches and has a couple very handy features. A carry strap for easy transportation, four big red pins to anchor the rug in place and the Fatboy label is in fact a handy pocket to stash your keys, phone or valuables and keep them safe and secure! How brilliant is that?!

The picnic rug is made from polyester, which isn’t a bad thing as it allows the rug to be durable, easy to clean and weather resistant. It also comes with a little brush so you can sweep away any sand or crumbs!

The Fatboy Picnic Lounge retails for $249.00 and is available in Australia through Design Public (International shipping is also available!)

Autumn Dining

Today I have a particularly appropriate Autumn post for you!

Verterra is an American company that create this amazing disposable Dinnerware from Fallen Leaves. Yep, you read right, fallen leaves! The dinnerware is created from fallen Palm leaves sourced from plantations combined with a mixture of steam, heat and pressure. The salvaged leaves are an agricultural by-product which would otherwise be burnt, so this is a very nice sustainable solution which is a brilliant alternative to harvesting trees.

The result is these beautiful plates which are durable enough to withstand anything you dish up at your dinner party, without the need for added toxins, bonding agents or glue. They won’t go limp and soggy like those paper plates and they contain no nasties like the plastic versions. And in case you weren’t already impressed, the dinnerware is also oven proof and microwave safe!

After use the plates will naturally biodegrade within two months, completing the natural cycle of a leaf as it composts and returns to the earth. Now that is some stylish, eco dinnerware!
