Ferm Living A/W 2014 Collection

August 15th, 2014

Have you guys seen the new Ferm Living Autumn/Winter collection? The Scandinavian homewares brand has launched the most eye catching range of products, and is quite possibly my favourite collection yet. I must admit I wasn’t really into the pastel hues and neons from their previous collections but this, my friends, is right up my alley. Moody tones and textures meet bold graphics. Their simplistic Nordic style that is so recognised is captured to perfection once again, this time in colours and materials that are really speaking to me. Here are my favourite images from the new lookbook.

Nordic Meets Japanese Design in a Melbourne Garage Conversion

August 14th, 2014

So I just died and went to garage conversion heaven. Spotted on The Design Files and photographed to perfection by Eve Wilson, I just had to share the boho gorgeous, teeny tiny Melbourne home of Alex Kennedy, who teamed up with architect friend Sarah Trotter of Hearth Studio to give the garage of her childhood home a complete overhaul and turn it into a cosy self-contained flat. The results? Just that and so, so much more. From exposed oregon beams and sandbagged brick walls to concrete floors and a plywood ceiling; from vintage meets modern fixtures, fittings and furniture to boho textiles accessories, this little space has me in a bit of a tailspin, friends.

ixxi at Home

August 13th, 2014

Have you guys heard of ixxi? They are an up-and-coming brand which print photographic images (your own or from their image bank) in a unique ‘pixelised’ way. You can choose any high resolution image and create either a collage or an enlargement. The image is then divided into several durable, matte cards, which are joined together by small connecting crosses. When ixxi contacted me recently to see if I was interested in reviewing their product, curiosity got the best of me and I’m glad it did. It was a fun little project selecting and ordering my ixxi. Here’s how it turned out!

DIY Wildflower Arrangement

August 11th, 2014

Happy Monday! I hope you all had a fabulous weekend. Mine was spent at home checking another couple of things off the renovation to-do list. Some updates on that can be found on Instagram. But for now, as promised, a super pretty DIY wildflower arrangement with gorgeous floral inspiration to kick start your week from the Style Me Pretty Living editorial which I collaborated on with photographer Anouschka Rokebrand. I showed you part one {the gathering of the blooms} last week, so here’s part two!
