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!!

We had a seriously quick catch up with Beth - I don't know about you but I just NEED to know how this girl ticks! 

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?

We asked her to put down her brushes (only for a few minutes!) for a speed round of quick questions....

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.

Modern Scandinavian. Minimalist. Clean lines.

If you're a cactus fan, you've no doubt spotted one or two of her cactus paintings in store or on our insta!

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

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!

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

The Magic Of Morocco!

As you've probably already heard, we are seriously obsessed with Morocco at the moment! The colours - the rugs - the tiles - the patterns.... ahhh we can't get enough! We are so super insanely lucky to be travelling there in May and we are counting the sleeps until our trip of a lifetime!!!

Together with the incredible Julia Green of Greenhouse Interiors, we have planned an experience like no other! We'll be exploring incredible souks and riads with one of the coolest stylists in Australia, and discovering all the beauty that Morocco has to offer - eeep!! 

Our first stop is the unreal Le Riad Yasmin, where we will wine, dine and lounge between adventures in Marrakech. Our exclusive slice of paradise! We'll be exploring the Medina and the colourful souks filled with incredible artisans stopping only for delicious food!

Just when we think we're being totally spoilt, we're off to the Scarebeo Camp!! That's right, a night of ultimate glamping in the desert! Luxury tents, a beautiful star studded Moroccan sky and in the morning, a hot air balloon ride that will blow your mind!

Then we're over to the seaside to visit the most incredible town, Essaouira! Staying at Villa Anouk, we will get the chance to explore the medina and the incredible colours of this fishing village. We'll also get the chance to experience a Moroccan cooking class - so we can bring these amazing flavours home with us!

Then it's time to rest our weary bones - a total leisure and pleasure experience in the mountains at Kasbah Bab Ourika! Hammans, steam rooms and massages await - complete and utter relaxation before our journey home again.

This is destined to be a total trip of a lifetime and we are still pinching ourselves! As much as we would love to take you all, you can follow the journey on our instagram. We promise to bring back some deliriously beautiful goodies for the store, so make sure you keep your eyes peeled for what hidden gems we find along the way!

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."
All smiles with Nick and Pip and their sons, Digby and Barnaby. Photo by Pip Farqaurson.
 
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.”

5 mins with Lumiere!
I am SO super excited that we're hosting an exhibition with Lumiere Art & Co at the end of the month!! We've been in love with Emma for a while now - she is one seriously clever cool girl! From painting, screen printing, ice dying and jewellery - this lady does it ALL!!! Nothing is ever too much trouble and she's always open to new colour ideas - I just LOVE it! We wanted you to get to know Emma a little more before her amazing artworks start flooding in! 
Mix or match?
Is there anyone in the world who would say match?! Mix mix mix. Life’s too short to match. ‘Match’ makes me think of waiting. 
Fave colour combo?
We have a few Lumiere favourites in which we repeat throughout our collections. Peach and denim blue. Green and pink. Plum and light magenta. Duck egg blue and yellow. Aqua and hot pink. We are colour match makers. 
Where do you find your inspiration?
I’ll mention an inspiration that doesn’t include travel, Pinterest and ‘the things around me’ which can sometimes be the most likely answers. The concept of ‘Collage’ or ‘Assemblage' is one of my biggest inspirations. Placing the incidental together which creates something new. I like to makes things that have a ‘David Bowie’ touch. A doily in a frame looks naff- its hasn’t changed enough or have been pushed into a different context. Its the pizzazz of something new and changing the way we look at the usual which makes what we do appealing. A slash of hot pink, a weird coloured frame, a scattering of geometric shapes over an organic shape. David Bowie made obscure pop songs within the framework of art. He used pop as a disguise. Love this approach and have used it would for Lumiere since the beginning. 
Dream holiday destination?
Looking at Jumbled's Instagram gives me strong Sicily vibes. Greece is also up there. I went to LA last year for work and absolutely loved it, I would love to bring the fam bam next time and road trip to the desert. 
Describe your style at home?
Minimal, 80’s classic colour palette, red brick, Domino painted woodwork, a mix of textures, lots of Industria X furniture, weaves, prints, plants, rugs, art by friends, a giant Miranda Skoczek painting and lots of windows. All with a sprinkling of rogue Lego blocks, hand drawn jellyfish and plastic tool sets. 
Dream collaborators?
Gorman. I’m dreaming big baby! 
Describe your perfect day?
Sunrise Yoga, coffee, an awesome ‘sampling' meeting with my Lumiere team, a little painting, an Aperol Spritz, a long lunch at the winery, some time with a Stand Up Paddle Board on the beach, hot summer night swims, a live band, dancing, giggles and gossip completed with a cosy bed made up of fresh linen sheets. I don’t ask for much hey?!
What is on your dream home wishlist?
So many lists. We have plans ready to ‘install/ plant/ landscape’ a new garden and I’m itching to start. Itching. Our friend Heath from Plume Studio designed it for us and its so special, it will need to be in a photoshoot in the future. That would number 1. I would also like a piano. Anything by Douglas and Bec and that is all. 
 
We are more excited than EVER now!! This exhibition is going to be amazing, and Emma is working so super hard to have lots of pieces ready to go!
We would love for you to join us on opening night, but the exhibition will also be accessible online! We're offering a presale evening the night before opening, for all you Lumiere lovers! 
We hope to see you there!!

All about AFTERPAY!

You've all been asking for it, so we got it! That's right, JUMBLED now offers Afterpay!!

Afterpay is relatively new, so I'm here to break it down and make it accessible for everyone. With Afterpay, you get your goodies straight away and automatic payments are deducted from your account fortnightly. It's basically like layby, except you get your item first!

When you're at the checkout, you select Afterpay in the same way you would select PayPal as a payment option. It's a really simple sign up process and takes minutes! The balance of your order is broken into 4 equal payments, and they're deducted from your account every 2 weeks - so simple! You don't have to log in to make payments, you won't be charged interest, and they even send you a little reminder email so you can be sure you have the funds in your account before they charge it. 

You can read more about Afterpay here.

So what are you waiting for? Try it out for yourself!

It's All About ANNIE!

If you follow us on instagram, you will already know how obsessed we are with the amazing artist, Annie Everingham! Everything she touches turns to pure gold, and we find ourselves falling head over heels for everything she paints (including her apron!)

We just can't stop looking at her pieces! There are always so many beautiful little snippets and if you ever catch us with a piece in store, you'll see us debating over which little snippet we like the most. It's the pops of neon amongst rich navy and plums - the beautifully washy sections up against the controlled architectural lines - the chaotic sections side by side with the vast blocks of colour... we just love it all!!!

With layers and layers of rich colour, you can see how much joy is in each piece! We love the youthful dynamics and interesting composition. The clash of pattern and florals, combine to create a dynamic and signature style. 

We are just so beyond excited to announce that we have been lucky enough to host an exhibition, in store, with the incredible ANNIE EVERINGHAM! It is going to be incredible!! We would love for you to join us, and to meet the incredible Annie herself! We know you will love her as much as we do!! If you want to get to know a little more about her, jump over to a previous interview with her here

If you don't live in Orange, don't fret because all artworks will be available for sale online! But why wait, this could be the perfect time to visit our amazing town (and store!) Orange is just full of amazing things to do, eat and drink - and it's right at the start of Orange FOOD Week!! FOOD Week is our favourite of year, check out the Brand Orange website here for a full program of events. The Night Markets on the Friday night is a must, so why not make a long weekend to remember! We've also written a blog post on all our favourite things to do in Orange, be sure to check it out here.

Marais AW17

Wowsers!! Sage and Clare has just released their Autumn/Winter collection Marais, and it is next level AMAZING!! Heavily inspired by Parisian luxury, Marais balances both the eclecticism of French design whilst remaining true to the traditional craftsmanship of hand looming. Tufted checks, tapestry florals and gingham waffles weaves... every piece of the collection is designed to both compliment and contrast in true Parisian style.

SHOP SAGE AND CLARE HERE

Society Of Wanderers
For linen lovers, the Society Of Wanderer's upcoming collection is a total dream come true! The softest ever linens in a huge range of colours, I just don't even know where to start!!
The range covers sheets, quilt covers, pillowcases, european pillowcases, valances and table linen! So much to choose from, and we just love mixing and matching (especially with the feature pattern - leopard print!)
The collection has opened for pre-orders and it's already being snapped up left, right and centre! Shop the collection here for delivery in mid-late March 2017.
We hope you love the collection as much as we do!!
Amy Wright joins the gang!

We are insanely thrilled to be welcoming artist and florist extraordinaire Amy Wright to our JUMBLED gang! She has got to be one of the coolest creatives around, dappling in two of our favourite things ever - art and flowers! Interestingly Amy began her career in the corporate world, working with textiles and colour for the Automative Industry. Thankfully for us, she now not only paints the most incredible artworks (her colour palette is so perfect) but she also has our dream job styling flowers for weddings and events through Wunderplant! Crazy cool!

We were super lucky to get the chance to have a quick chat with Amy, and really get to know the girl behind the artworks! 

Mix or match

I am definitely more a MIX person! With a mixed bag of a background, I am drawn to endless patterns, textures, colors, all from different eras and genres. I love the interplay between the mis matched. Op shopping is one of my greatest vices! I love the story behind things, and love to think that things have come from somewhere completely different to where it is that you found it and where you'll be putting it. 

 

Fave colour combo

I adore colour. My favorite colour is always a moving target! My colour loves can be very seasonal. Much of my inspiration is drawn from my immediate surroundings - landscapes, flora - as the surroundings change so too does my colour palette loves.  I do love the mix of dusty muted neutrals, with a sudden punch of a high chroma accent in a vibrant orange, emerald green or a regal purple.

 

Where do you find your inspiration

My immediate surroundings are my go to for inspiration, my works are often botanically biased, and there is a never ending bucket of inspiration from the floral world. Plants are just amazing!  I do have the inclination to look at parts of landscape that others wouldn't normally notice. I like to hone in on sections, get up close and look at the patterns, textures and colours that appear when you isolate a section and remove it from its 'normal' environment. 

 

Dream holiday destination

Europe, somewhere, anywhere.

Your perfect day

30 degrees and sunny with a gentle breeze. Start with a walk along the coast with camera in hand, returning inevitably with a handful of grasses and floral samples. Time out in the garden in the sunshine with a cuppa, followed by a painting sesh in the studio, perhaps a couple of hours....general pottering about..... glass of wine and yummy dinner with my partner Steve. A relaxed, no frills kinda day 

 

Describe your style at home

Mixed! And always changing! I drive Steve mad with my rearranging! I go through periods with lots of colour and pattern and then I'll put that stuff away and it'll be muted coloured velvets and linens. I am a collector of things so I have little collections dotted around. Things in groups of 3, 5, 7.... Too many decorative white ceramic vases. Plants, plants, some flowers, and some more plants.

 

Fave flower or foliage

One and the same.  FAVE = Grasses, what most people would call weeds. So beautiful. Their structure, their colours, their movement and the sound they make when the wind blows.

We are lucky enough to have two of Amy's pieces in store, and they are beyond amazing! Check out her pieces online here!
