I am not afraid to share that I have a total ceramics crush on The Mod Collective!
The whole collection is available in this amazing range of fun colours and a huge array of edgy finishes. The unique surface patterns are created through a mix of design software, 3D printing and then the final pieces are cast, by hand, in Valissa’s Melbourne studio. The result is these beautifully detailed objects that range from serving ware through to light pendants.
I adore the complete range but I think the light pendants are simply spectacular! The textured surface is emphasised so beautifully as the light rays shine through the porcelain. These are really a special creation, don’t you agree?
Geometric patterns are still a huge trend at the moment with hundreds of beautiful faceted designs on the market.
This week I share with you a few pieces that I think are the pick of the crop, easy to work into your home as individual pieces, without the need to totally overhaul your style.
Hope you like my selection!

Have you heard of the brilliantly curated collections of online store The Minimalist?
I only recently discovered them after falling in love with the Varpunen Sacks and hounding down an Aussie supplier. They stock a small but beautiful and unique range of homewares that are all right on trend. HH recommends checking out their artist list if you are after something edgy and new to accessorize your home with.
If you are Sydney based, The Minimalist are opening a pop up shop today at Gaffa Building, Arcade 1, 281 Clarence Street Sydney. Go and check out their amazing range of wares in the flesh until August 17th.
Mathematics was never my strong point, so it comes as no surprise that I find the current geometric trend a tricky one.
Personally I find most of the designs a little too busy, or bright, or worse still, a combination of both. So I decided to take on the challenge and find some geometric inspired homewares which I do love and would be more than happy to feature in my home. Gasp! Is it possible my left brain has embraced the use of the equilateral triangle?!
Here are some pared back pieces to make you the Dux rather than Dunce of the current geometric trend!
1. Triangle Floating Shelf set by Junglai
2. Natural Linen pillow covers by Paleolochic
3. Balance Frame by Mmim
4. Modern Mobile – Himmeli No. 5 by AMradio
5. Isleta Duvet Cover by Anthropologie
