How cute are these wall plaques by Melbourne company Ivy and Lil?
Each image is screen printed by artist Jenny Pemberton-Webb in her Melbourne studio. This collection is inspired by her recent travels around Australia and features the industrial elements of street signs and road markings.
Available in a range of fun colours, each design is printed by hand onto linen and then framed with a bamboo embroidery hoop, such a cool touch! While your on her site, also check out the cushions, tea towels and cards because they are all pretty fun too!
The wall plaques range in size from 13-16cm diameter and retail for a tiny $34 each! And, as an added bonus, Ivy and Lil are currently offering free shipping until December 18th! Woohoo!
It may be summer here in Australia, but the current weather is a wee bit wintery making my latest discovery all the more appealing!
Melbourne Company Otto and Spike make these gorgeous 100% Merino Wool blankets that you just know will be super snug, soft and cuddly. The Starstruck Blanket features a large Aztec style pattern in a selection of four colour palettes, my fave is the Charcoal, Natural and Gold combo!
Each blanket measures 150 x 210cm, which is about equivalent to a queen size bed. I can imagine these would look gorgeous draped across a bed or as a throw on the lounge! They are all knitted by Otto and Spike in Melbourne and retail at $300 each. I love them, how about you?
I found this bed a while ago and became totally obsessed with it, unfortunately for me I totally forgot who made it and where to get it from! Silly me…
So happy that I can finally share the fabulous Dodu bed by Blu Dot with you now. Isn’t it cool?! The bed frame is made with a mixture of hardwood and pine, covered with padding and woven felt upholstery. In my opinion it is everything a bed should be – soft, cushy and comfortable!
Because it is a low profile bed design the single size is also ideal for kids, just think, no more danger when they’re jumping on the bed! The felt slip cover is also removable, making it super easy to clean and looking brand new. This bed is a total crowd pleaser, I think it suits nearly all ages from toddlers, teens to adults, don’t you agree?
Available in three colours – aqua, graphite and wheat and retails for $1,899 for a single, $2,099 Double, $2,299 Queen and $2,499 for the King.
Currently swooning over the Skygarden lamp by Marcel Wanders…
This design is new to me, but was actually designed by Marcel for Flos Architectural in 2007 and was inspired by the ceiling in his former home.
The exterior of the pendant light is a hemisphere of die-cast aluminum alloy – modern, minimal and sleek in appearance. In contrast, the interior of the light is filled with the intricate details reminiscent of an antique plaster ceiling, timeless and decorative!
It is a stunning design that uses the function of the light to highlight the plaster pattern, casting shadows that emphasise the detail in the garden design. I picture this light fitting in perfectly in a newly renovated Victorian home, it would be just the right mix of contemporary and heritage to complement that type of space.
The light is available in four exterior colours – Matt Gold, Matt Rusty Brown, Gloss White and Gloss Black.
Available in Australia through Euroluce Lighting.
Here is a sneak peek of the latest pieces from Kim Wallace Ceramics!
The new collection is called Ebb Tide and the pieces are a beautiful wash of blue hues, soft, undulating forms and patterns reminiscent of mollusc shells or tidal lines. This collection totally appeals to my beachy style and love all things hand-made! I think the wobbly shapes and crisp colours are so divine.
The collection consists of pebble plates, cheese boards and bowls in various colours and designs that are inspired by her move to the Sunshine Coast in Queensland Australia, and by the ever-changing seaside environment that she now calls home. Goes to show how inspiring a sea change can be to a person!
Ebb Tide also includes Christmas ornaments, making the collection a perfect, unique gift idea for this time of year! Sign up for Kim’s newsletter to be alerted when the collection is available for purchase.
