Kitchen Kudos

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


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.


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

Chop to It

And another clever design that has really taken into consideration the way it functions, is the Cut and Slide Boards by Design For Use.

The wooden chopping board is nested within a boat shape ceramic dish. The elevated, curved end creates a scoop like section that acts like a dish that catches and contains food as you chop it. This simple addition means you keep your board space free for food preparation, you won’t have food rolling off the board onto the floor and the scoop shape aids transfer of the food from board to pan.

Now that’s one clever chopping board!

Cut and Slide Boards – Small $30, Medium $69.00 available through Design For Use.

Daily Grind

Extraordinary design by Tom Dixon, who else! I swear the man is on a mission to alleviate me of all my hard-earned cash…

Who knew these kitchen essentials could look so stylish and still be functional? Combining the subtle beauty of white Morwad marble with the gleam of polished brass, this set of kitchenware is both stunningly beautiful whilst remaining practical. Chop and grind to your heart’s content knowing that these pieces can withstand the punishment and have all been tried, tested and approved by chefs working in his London restaurant. Love, love, love your work Tom!

Stone Chopping Board – $121.00

Stone Spice Grinder – $132.00

Stone Mortar & Pestle – $266.00

Can you Handle This?

I am completely in love with this 2011 prototype called “Handle Me” by Oeyvind Wyller, Christoffer Angell and Simen Aarseth as part of the collective Angell Wyller Aarseth.

Made from cast iron with dowel handles, this set looks stunning in the classic combination of black and white but is also a sturdy, reliable piece of cookware. Cast iron cookware lasts a lifetime, and can take a battering and still maintain its finish.

I look at this design as a perfect mix of aesthetics with practicality, a real “Chefs” tool, that is a serious piece of cookware you could easily present your meal in, from kitchen to table voila!

Minimal, classic, durable. Bravo Angell Wyller Aarseth!








Just Add Colour

Trust Jonathan Adler to inject some fun into your home.

He has teamed up with the iconic brand Kohler to create a range of colourful sinks that will become the statement piece in your house. Available in a range of classy colours that are bold but still classic, why not take this chance to mix it up a little and evolve from the standard white bowl.

And I love that he is wearing red and green together, Mr Adler, you little risk taker!

Feeling exposed

Although it isn’t actually something new, exposed pipes in the home can make a striking design feature.

Brass pipes have long been used in Victorian bathroom decor, stainless steel in more recent designs but recently the resurgence of copper is really taking off (if you can afford it that is!) Just look how exposed pipes have been used in the following Pinterest images. The styles move from Victorian, to industrial, to cool minimalism with ease but I have to say, the polished copper just has to be my favourite, how about you?
