Mix or match?
Are we talking about underwear here?  If so- mix.  I’m way too old and lazy to match! If we weren’t talking about undies then I’m still definitely more mixy than matchy matchy.
Fave colour combo?
Pink and green every time.
What is your favourite podcast?
Honour Eastly’s @starvingartistpod, the ABC’s Conversation Hour podcast and My Dad Wrote a Porno for a naughty chuckle.
Where do you find your inspiration?
Everywhere!  I find inspiration in the colours and forms found in nature, architecture, urban and industrial landscapes. And I do waste a lot of time looking for inspiration on Instagram and Pinterest.
Dream holiday destination?
After living overseas and travelling for most of my 20s, I am now a certifiable homebody.  If I must leave the cosiness of my lovely house then Morocco is always my dream destination. I’ve spent a lot of time there and it has a little piece of my heart. I adore the colour, the vibrancy the chaos and the warm hospitality. And I love a good haggle for treasures in the souks.
Describe your style at home?
Skandi-Moroccan-Eclectic-Jungle-Mess with a liberal coating of Golden Retriever hair, books and kid detritus. It’s not so much a style, more of a lightly curated mish-mash of pretty stuff and a hell of a lot of books.  We are book hoarders and poor housekeepers.
Dream Collaborators?
Gorman and Jumbled of course!
Describe your perfect day
My perfect day starts with a sleep in and no school lunches to make. A family walk on the beach (with no fighting or whingeing “how much further?") with Ned our dog, stopping on the way home for a delicious brunch at our favourite cafe. A spot of painting in the afternoon would be nice followed by a barbie with our neighbours and my brother and sister in law. Nothing makes my heart fuller than having fun and food at home with my friends and family. The ladies chat and drink wine around the kitchen island bench, the kids go crazy in the garden and the men poke at the sausages on the BBQ. Then the children would go off to bed without needing 25 glasses of water, five stories and a half and hour lay down and they’d sleep ALL NIGHT IN THEIR OWN BEDS! Ahhhh, what a dream!
What is on your dream home wishlist?
I am living my dream.  I wish for nothing… except a pair of those new velvet flower print Rachel Castle pillow cases. (Hint to husband… Birthday not far off!)
Kip & Co AW18!

Yaaaaay! Brand new Kip & Co makes me deliriously excited!!! When we first laid eyes on this collection, it was total love at first sight! Those tassels, and the velvet colours! Insanely good!!

Yes, Sage and Clare have released a linen collection in the COOLEST colours ever. IN LOVE!!!

Beautiful Bonnie!

We can't wait to introduce you to one of the most colourful artists in the JUMBLED gang, Bonnie Gray! We've been lucky enough to have a few of Bonnie's artworks in store before and you just can't but feel super happy when you see her work!

A poet and a story teller, Bonnie's artworks weave together short tales full of colour and life. Reminiscent of 90s tee shirts and gelato skies, Bonnie's work is a melodic explosion of joy. Inspired by birthday parties and celebrations, each piece is a little ray of sunshine.

If you're as addicted to Bonnie's infectiously happy artworks as we are, then make sure you jump online to check out the AMAZING original artwork that we just brought back with us from Sydney! We are literally skipping through the shop we're so excited!



Oh hey there Adele!

Oh my gosh, I can't tell you how excited we are to meet new artist Adele Naidoo!!! Growing up in South Africa with an artist for a father, Adele grew up with all things beautiful and creative. Inspired by a childhood of colour and beauty, Adele now works as a digital artist! 

Influenced by Fauvism, Adele is drawn to the juxtaposition of bright, bold colours. She works with a combination of saturated colours and subdued pastel hues. 

We are thrilled to be stocking a range of her brightly coloured birds! They are printed on a stunning canvas, which is stretched over wood and framed in Tasmanian Oak. They're the perfect pop of interest for any space!

Brilliant Beth!

Have you guys had a chance to check out our incredible Beth Kennedy original artworks yet? Her work is incredible - the colours, the pop of neon, the layers and the seriously intricate little bits. I could stare at one of her artworks for hours on end!!

Mix or match?

Definitely mix, I like a lot of colours and patterns and I don’t mind them clashing a bit!

Fave colour combo?

I’m totally obsessed with pink and love all different shades of pink in my paintings and I teem this with blues, greens and oranges (to name a few!)

Where do you find your inspiration?

I love looking at patterns whether fabrics or wallpapers; flowers - I draw these from life and it’s a lovely thing to have fresh flowers in my house; other painters work inspires me too

Dream holiday destination?

Paris! We’re jetting off on a family holiday next year which we’re looking forward to

Describe your style at home?

White walls, colourful cushions and throws, big paintings on the walls (of course!) and it’s got to be pretty but low maintenance as well as I have two little girls and I want them to be totally at ease in their space. We have a dinged up dining table that they sit and draw and paint at and I love that

Dream Collaborators?

Well I’m feeling totally blown away to be collaborating with Greenhouse Interiors and also Jumbled Online! Honestly, talk about dreams coming true...

Describe your perfect day

Eeeep - we get so super excited when we find a new artist, and when we spotted Kate's work it was love at first sight!!! We are beyond excited to introduce you to Kate Mayes! We're totally loving her jungle vibes and fresh greens, and her enthusiasm and lust for life is totally contagious! 
We asked her to put down her brushes (only for a few minutes!) for a speed round of quick questions....
Mix or Match?
Mix all the way.  
Fave colour combo? 
Probably blue and green and dusty pink and emerald green and a peach and violet combo is superb too, there are far too many to choose just one. 
Where do you find your inspiration?
EVERYWHERE! I am so annoying, I’m always saying to my family oh look at those clouds, look at this leaf, look at the way the ocean is sparkling, I’m just going to pull over and pick some wildflowers/weeds!
Dream holiday destination? 
Describe your style at home?
Modern Scandinavian. Minimalist. Clean lines.
Our home is a U shape and I love that I can see through to each of the rooms from wherever I am in the house. 
Dream collaborators?
Ok, Gorman or Kip and Co. I know, I know I’m not quite up there with Rachel Castle and Animalia (and so many others) but a girl has to dream big. 
Describe your perfect day?
10am wake up then automatically be ready for the day, coffee and a beach walk with my family, paint until late afternoon then a swim and dinner in the backyard. Then paint some more.

We were lucky enough to catch Kate for a quick chat...
Mix or Match?
Mix!! I like to keep the big ticket items fairly neutral and earthy and then be bolder in colour with artwork, cushions and throws etc 
Fave Colour Combo
Dusty pink and mustard with a bit of pastel aqua to make it sing
Where do you find your inspiration?
Nature, home mags and Instagram
Dream holiday destination
Byron Bay. We are going there for the first time in January and I can't wait!
Your perfect day?
My perfect day would be having a lie in, coffee in bed, painting in the studio and then dinner out somewhere with family and friends.
Describe your style at home
I love earthy tones and textures, baskets, natural weave rugs and light timbers with pops of colour in things like cushions, artwork and throws etc. I have quite a few indoor plants and like to feel surrounded by nature even when I am inside. 
Now if you're as big a Kate Jarman fan as we are, then boy do we have news for you! Starting tonight Friday 17th November 2017 at 7pm, we are running a competition for you to win a framed limited edition print of Kate Jarman's 'Elke's Cactus'! Woo hoo!!!

Dulux Colour Trends 2018

As total colour lovers, every year we hang out for the Dulux Colour Trends. It's the ultimate inspiration! This year I was blown away when I  was asked to be a contributor!!! Umm.... yes, yes please!

This year's trends focus around 4 main themes; Essential, Escapade, Kinship and Reflect.

ESSENTIAL: Embrace different textures, handmade touches and raw edges


Essential is an ode to an authentic way of life and an appreciation for thoughtful and handmade items. It's all about bringing it back to basics and uncomplicating our surroundings. The colour focus here is gentle soothing colours. Not necessarily the traditional neutrals but rich tones designed to encourage simplicity.

We love that this trend creates a soothing and relaxing haven - you just know you'll feel rejuvenated from being in this home. The minimalist focus allows you to really appreciate those super special items. 

Painting aside, there are lots of ways you can bring this trend through your home. Bring in more texture  - super soft linens, a handmade ceramic platter for the table, a soft woolen throw blanket or a knotted jute rug. Keep the palette simple and earthy but don't just stick with beige. Try dusty pink or a soft avocado, get creative but think soothing.

ESCAPADE: Creating fun, lighthearted holiday vibes 

Moving right on to Escapade - this is all about creating a fun and playful space, reminiscent of those relaxing holiday vibes. The adventure comes from inspired colour palettes, that perfect pop of an unexpected colour, bold shapes and a mixing pot of styles. 

We love that this trend creates a space that is uplifting and playful. The perfect little escape, why would you want to be anywhere else?

You can bring this trend through your space by being brave with colour! Pick a colour palette that you just really love and try it! If you're unsure where to start, I find it useful to pick a favourite artwork and draw colour inspiration from there. Working with similar tones and then choosing an unusual contrast colour will help the colour feel cohesive.

KINSHIP: A celebration of culture through colour and texture

That brings us to Kinship, an eclectic blending of cultures and colours creating a space that is all about happiness, family and friendship. Cluttered with a mix of cultural and traditional pieces, Kinship focuses on warmth through collection and deep rich terracottas. 

We love that this creates a warm inviting space where you want to gather around the table with loved ones and share stories. The collection of cultural items feels personal and evokes a sense of wonder that travel ignites. The rich earthy tones pulls it all together.

You can emulate this trend with lush Moroccan rugs, unique vintage vases and hand printed Indian style cushions. Rich earthy tones can be balanced with muddled greens, and pattern, embroidery and tassels helps finish the space perfectly.

 REFLECT: Elegance and opulence are emulated through deep, rich tones and a nod to past glamour

Reflect throws back to the elegance of an older era. Timeless luxury is explored with moody and deep tones, touches of metallic and iconic shapes and styles.

We love the quiet decadence that this style oozes. Restful yet eccentric, the space feels like luxury.

To bring the Reflect theme through your space, draw your focus to classic finishings and unique century pieces. Think marble, crushed velvets, rich leather. To really set the space, try a unique central focus - it could be a deep purple velvet armchair, a smokey century pendant or even a crumbling antique stone bust. Try deep rich tones to bring it all together.

As usual Dulux have totally nailed the trends this year and I cannot wait to re-evaluate my space and inject some freshness with colour! If this is anything to go by, 2018 is going to be a cracker of a year!

Have you met Elle?

We are so so so super excited to welcome the ultra incredible Elle Campbell to our Jumbled family!! We were lucky enough to have dinner with Elle, and her bright, bubbly (and hilarious) personality is totally contagious! You only have to look at her art to see how bright she shines!

Elle has recently exploded onto the scene with her graduate textile pieces. Painting with mixed media over silk, each mark made is not without significance. The layers of spray paint, oils and acrylics creates the most incredible pieces!

Boucherouite baby!

We have just received the most incredible delivery of boucherouite vintage rugs and EVERY house needs one! Oh my gosh they are like works of art! Each one is completely unique in size and colour - they're sourced directly from the streets of Morocco!

We love boucherite rugs because the colours and patterns are so unusual and unique that they are the perfect statement piece! They add a touch of boho to any space, but it doesn't end there! You could easily warm up a simple space, or even bring colour into a room. I know the soft pastel ones would look like a total dream in a nursery!

We were only able to source a handful this season, so you'll have to be super snappy to bag yourself a boucherite! Find your favourite online here

Design Sponge
Shop Tour: An Australian Concept Store Based in an 1864 Masonic Hall 
by Rebekah Carey
Pip Brett and Nick Luelf purchased the former Masonic Hall of Orange in New South Wales, Australia in June of last year and opened the doors to their concept space, The Sonic, only nine weeks later. The Masonic Hall was built in 1864, and one night when Nick was walking the couple’s dogs he saw that it was for sale, and actually had been for four years. The next day they looked at the space, fell in love with the exterior, the interior’s original beams, bricks, and hardwood floors, and put in an offer. Nick is a builder, which would prove useful in their whirlwind nine-week renovation of the space, and Pip owns a homewares store — Jumbled — and clothing store — Iglou. Pip launched Iglou in 2006 and Jumbled in 2012. Through the success of the shops’ online marketplaces and social media presences the stores were outgrowing their physical spaces, so creating a concept store with the couple’s favorite things — fashion, home goods, and coffee — was ideal timing. The classic Masonic Hall was so big that it allowed enough room to let the three businesses feel like they had distinct spaces, while still feeling open and having a clear flow.
With a tight timeframe, and limited budget, the couple enlisted old high school friends and architecture and interior design firm, Studio Esteta, to help round out their vision. The support from others also elevated the design, and most importantly helped to ensure their plan was complete so that the moment they were ready to begin their renovation, nothing would delay them. Finishing the project was a labor of love, complete with friends and family whose help made it all possible. The last project Pip and Nick are in the process of tackling now is the cooling and heating of the massive space — the latter of which will be important because it actually snows in Orange! Ultimately, the creative couple made a shop that feels both historic and modern at the same time, and one we’d be happy to get lost in while sipping a coffee and taking in all the treasures. —Rebekah

Image Above: Pip describes all the hard work that went into making their dream a reality, “Chipping render, painting walls, sanding floors… we did it all ourselves and we nearly killed ourselves in the process! Looking back, it was the greatest experience and I’m so proud and can’t believe what my husband and I (and a merry team of helpers) achieved in such a whirlwind.”
Pip lends a little insight into the history of their space, "Our Masonic Hall was built in 1864 in a traditional Masonic design style with references to Eygptian architecture and ancient Greek symbols." Pip continues, "We re-painted the façade white and exposed the original Greek emboss on the façade. Introduced black steel details; new fencing, signage, black steel framed doors and handrails – a common link throughout the building."
This is the cafe area of The Sonic -- Nimrod's. In the Jumbled and Nimrod's cafe areas Pip shares their renovation goals, "Create a light and bright interior aesthetic – blank canvas to display the product. Raw and textural palette. Expose existing ceiling structure." Some of their favorite features of the building can all be seen from this vantage point. "When my husband and I got up in the ceiling for that very first time, we fell in love with the beautiful old beams and just couldn't believe our luck. It was even more amazing than we ever could have possibly imagined. Up there we just knew that we had to buy it. We somehow managed to purchase the old building (lots of begging and pleading with the bank) leaving us with a VERY limited budget, but I guess that is when the challenge and exciting journey began."
"There are three distinct areas in the open-plan design of The Sonic. We wanted to create a space that had a flow throughout whilst still maintaining a distinct separation," Pip explains. 
"There are three distinct areas in the open-plan design of The Sonic. We wanted to create a space that had a flow throughout whilst still maintaining a distinct separation," Pip explains.
Pip admits, "I had always dreamt about a concept store - coffee, fashion, home - everything I love under one roof!" The bones of the space were always incredible, but Pip and Nick knew they could make them even more so with their goals for the inside. "We exposed all the existing trusses and pitched ceiling. Opened up existing separate interior spaces to allow for connection and spatial flow. Exposed all the original brickwork and painted it with a whitewash finish, enhancing the existing qualities of the building."
One of the three distinct spaces is the clothing store, Iglou. Pip describes her inspiration for this area: "Refined and intimate feel. Maintain existing low ceiling grid. Light and bright, but more refined than Jumbled. Constrained playfulness."
We love how cohesive, yet distinct, the three separate entities are within the space. Pictured-- Iglou, the clothing arm of The Sonic.

A dressing room that feels like it could be found in Old Hollywood or a minimalist's wildest dreams.
Pip looked on the positive side of their limitations, "Our limited budget and extreme time restraints made the renovation challenging. However, I am a huge believer that a limited budget forces you to be resourceful; to work harder in finding cheaper alternatives and to push you to think outside of the box. When this takes place, that is when the design magic happens."
With a space so big that entire living scenes can be beautifully displayed, it's no wonder Jumbled (and the other shops) have done so well in the new space.
Pip shares what she values the most in their space, "I am most thankful that The Sonic allows us to work in a big and beautiful space every day. Our new home gives our art and products room to breathe and shine, which has seen our business grow and flourish. I feel so lucky that we stumbled across this lovely old building and took a chance."
Pip explains the tight renovation schedule and their community who helped them achieve their dreams: "Because of the short timeframe we had to literally work day and night for nine weeks. Having my husband Nick as a builder saved us so much time and money. We did everything that we possibly could ourselves and had a team of dedicated family and friends lending a much needed hand. I think they realized that we may have bitten off a little more than we could chew. Without them we would probably be still renovating and/or broke!"
An added benefit of the huge space is that it allows Pip and Nick to host events and workshops as well. The lovely, and rather prolific, Australian stylist Julia Green of Greenhouse Interiors, just hosted styling workshops in the space.
"Iglou and Jumbled had outgrown both of our current stores and we were looking for something bigger when we discovered that the old Masonic Hall was for sale. It ticked all of the boxes -- it had so much character, a huge inspiring space, incredible roof trusses and beams and was in a great location right in the center of town. The size and layout of the building allowed us to turn our dream of a concept store into a reality."

Pip shares the intention behind the design of their space, “There are three distinct areas in the open-plan design of The Sonic. We wanted to create a space that had a flow throughout whilst still maintaining a distinct separation.”
