Flora and Fauna

In a week that helps remind us of how lucky we are to live in a country like Australia, I’ve been thinking about the influence of our native surroundings on the development of design. Inspired by the beauty of Australian flora and fauna, the latest collection (which I will be sharing with you all very soon), draws vision from Australia’s most beautiful natural vegetation.

Design in Bloom

I like to start my design process with a spark of inspiration. Inspiration can come from any influence but one of my favourite things to do is to drop into Flowers Vasette. Vasette is a magical flower world where you can find extraordinary verity and beautiful seasonal inspiration.

Date Night

My Christmas gift from Benjamin last year was season tickets to the Malthouse Theatre. It has been a wonderful gift that keeps on giving. We have seen a whole lot of theatre that we would not normally think to see, and it is the perfect excuse to get a babysitter and have a date night!

Life In Style

It was great to catch up with friends at Life In Style trade fair this weekend.  I didn't showcase my label this time around but could not resist to have a walk around and gossip with my Comrades in small creative business.

It has been too long since my last post, I have been quite preoccupied with the winter colds that have been rotating through the family.  It as been quite frustrating as I have been having so many great design ideas but not the time to put any of them into action.
