Sparkle Your Home!

 

Christmas may be over, but that does not mean we have to stop injecting sparkle into our homes! I love the silly season and one of my favourite things about it is the fairy lights and unashamable amount of glitter floating around. I have been searching for some non-christmas sparkle inspiration and here are my top picks. Enjoy!

Bed Head Inspiration

I was talking with some friends over Christmas about wanting to change the look of my bedroom. I want something that is impressive and inviting. One of my favourite things to do is relax in bed with the latest interior mags and a large plunger of coffee. I want to be surrounded by style and comfort but also something light and original.

Here is my favourite finds on Pinterest and some options we have in store for a fast and effective bedroom makeover!

I love the look of an upholstered bed head!

Review - Gelato Messina

When this book arrived in store recently, we literally melted into a salivating mess!

Messina first opened its doors in Darlinghurst, Sydney in 2002. It had a clear goal - to set a new benchmark for Gelato in Australia. They have certainly achieved this with people flocking to their store, which is now located at The Star, The Creative Department and in Surry Hills. They have been given honours in the Good Food Guide and have many fans, including some of the finest chefs in the country. 

We are thrilled the Messina family have compiled their most beloved (and best selling) recipes and published them in this glorious book. Messina - the cookbook, includes lush photography and clear instructions on how to create their recipes in your very own domestic kitchen. Insert whooping sounds! 

Our favourite is Mango Sorbet!

Mangoes are in season and we used Kensington Pride. So juicy and sweet, you would swear that it has dairy in it - but it doesn't. It would be PERFECT as an alternative Christmas Day dessert!

You can buy the book here ($39.95 + shipping) - and if this is a Christmas present, don't forget to request free gift wrapping!

Interview with Canvas Home



‘With a blank canvas, textiles can transform any setting into a fresh, new space.’
Canvas Home evolved from our love of creating and designing beautiful bespoke collections while travelling the globe for inspiration. Collaborating with Indian artisans, our collections are rich with a kaleidoscope of vibrant hues, stunning textures, hand block printing and appliqué.

We hear you recently took a trip to India for work, what would your day look like in India?

Up early and eat the most delicious ‘masala dosa’ for breakfast. It is an Indian breakfast with paper thin crispy crepes with spicy potato filling. It really wakes you up! Spend time with suppliers designing ranges including fabrics, colour palette and block printed patterns. The Indians are very hospitable and there is always ‘Chai’ on offer to keep you going. We try and stop for lunch and love visiting ‘Latitude’ the café on top of Good Earth in the Khan Market in Dehli. It is a must every trip. Salty lime sodas are a favorite! Off to another supplier - taking photos out of the taxi as I go. Camels on roads, monkeys on power lines are all in a days work. Return to the hotel and enjoy a well deserved Gin and Tonic or two.

Shopping in India can be fabulous - what was your best buy?

A beautiful hand stitched vintage wall hanging that is massive and hangs on the wall at home – it was so heavy I had to ship it back with stock. 

Favourite Curry?

Eating a ‘thalis’ (which is a selection of all different tastings) by candlelight on a rooftop Haveli in Jaipur

Finish this sentence, 'a trip to India is not complete without...' 

Getting lost in the Kinari Bazaar, literally the ‘trimmings and trinkets’ market in Old Delhi.



Where do you find inspiration?

All around from trips in Taxi's to the incredibly talented people we work with.

Most memorable car trip?

Driving home down a dirt road from dinner near the Amber Fort in Jaipur, we literally came across an elephant coming home from work at the fort. His master stopped and he was poking his trunk in the car windows and we were able to get out and meet him!

Favourite colours from the trip?

The Saris the women wear are incredibly beautiful and the colours always inspiring. Hot Pinks, Orange, Yellows and even the Neon colours are on trend there!

Christmas Table Settings

We're not really one for traditional, so we have been searching for inspiration to make our Christmas table AMAZING this year! And wow. We have found some cracking stuff. As in, get your champagne bottles ready and your prawns top and tailed because we have you sorted this Christmas!! And the added bonus - everything we are going to show you is not Christmas exclusive! It can be used all year round (at times in a completely different function) and therefore makes it even more fantastic!

 

Pony Rider have given us some fabulous inspiration and shown us how wonderful their Hydrangea Flower Patch Throw looks as a table cloth - and there you have the multifunctional product which can be used on a lounge / bed / table throughout the year!

 

Add some wonderful faux flowers and your table is festive, colourful and inviting!

For some serious colour love on Christmas day look no further than our colourful glassware and jugs.

 

Add extra luxury to your table with scatter cushion on each seat. These could also be perfect for jazzing up your lounge or bed in the New Year!

And finally for food! Thanks again to Pony Rider for sharing some amazing recipes - all made for their photos shoot (please say I wasn't the only one salivating over the food!) Check out them out here.

Welcome To Our Entrance!

The entrance to your home should blow people away! O.k, that may be a little O.T.T but we are here to gently encourage (lecture) you on moving the muddy boots and bulky raincoats out of the road and inserting some serious style into the spot all your visitors are making their first impression of your house!

So, as recently mentioned, remove all old shoes, toys, junk mail and items you are planning on returning to people. This de-clutter will allow you to see the space clearly. Do you need a new console or buffet to help keep the area tidy? Or some baskets to put the shoes in? 

Is your entrance screaming out for a fab hall runner or rug to help define the space? 

We suggest placing an amazing artwork In your entry way. Every time you come into the house you will be reminded of how gorgeous your home is!

Meet Ali McNabney-Stevens

Ali McNabney-Stevens is a Melbourne based British artist who earned her Honours Degree in Design and History of Art from Edinburgh College of Art in 1991. She furthered her studies in London at a number of St Martin’s Fine Art Summer Schools where she developed her passion for painting.

Over the years Ali’s versatility of style and courage as a painter has grown along with her confidence. There is a definite sense of self emerging in every new artwork that she creates…she has now made the move to full time painting. 

You may recognise Ali's style, she has had her paintings featured on Offspring and The Block. Ali has also been profiled in some of the leading Interior and Design magazines in Australia.

We are thrilled to have some of her paintings in store and available to our customers. We sat down with Ali and asked her a few questions about painting and life and I think we fell even more in love with her after hearing her answers!

Where do you draw your inspiration from?

Most recently and also if I am stuck I seem to sub consciously return to landscapes or images from my home in the UK. Industrial Harbour which is one of the images from my most recent limited edition print series was inspired by the Harland and Wolff ship building yard in Belfast. My most recent canvas Dee Street has come from the same place in my mind….big iconic yellow cranes and cold coloured concrete forms…. I am very very happy with them.

Do you like to surround yourself with certain things when you paint?

More often than not I don’t surround myself with anything other than the mess in my studio, I do however listen to ALOT of BBC Radio Four podcasts the most recent being ‘Great Lives’. The latest Great Life that I have been listening to has been John Steinbeck…. I lose myself in the radio and before I know it its lunch time and I have missed coffee.

What makes you happy?

The sense of achievement that I get from painting something that I am very proud of is happiness in the making but it doesn’t last long because I am onto the next painting and so on. Really good Tom Yum soup makes me very very happy too.

What is your best kept wardrobe secret?

I don’t know that I have one. I am forever trying things on and thinking ‘ why can’t that work with that’, those are too long, those are too tight, I must get a pair of those to work with that, I really need a bright pink one of those…so as you can see if someone has a good wardrobe secret I would like them to share it with me.

What's the thing you miss most about Britain?

Europe, London and easy access to my mother and friends.

Favourite song on your playlist at the moment?

Finlay Quaye/Beth Orton ‘Dice' and Kurt Vile ‘On Tour'

What do you consider your biggest creative achievement?

Biggest creative achievement has been to team up with my Manager Julia Green of Greenhouse Interiors and realise my long term dream of having a career that involves my artwork and is a full time business.

Get back to 'Work Spaces'

At some time in your life I'm sure you have had this very romantic idea of working from home. We've all said "I'll be SO productive" whilst imaging yourself typing furiously in your fluffy slippers, rising only to brew a quick herbal tea before retuning to make phone calls and file things away in the cabinet next to your scented candle. We have complied a little 'how to' for creating the very space to make the dream a reality.

Firstly to the desk. Function here is important, although we would suggest sticking to neutral organic colours such as wood, white or dark grey / black to allow for colour in other places.

Wooden tables are sturdy and work well with light floors and walls.

White tables are crisp and clean and work better with darker floors or walls and make the space appear bigger.

Collaging artwork above your desk is the perfect way to ensure you are always inspired. If your eye happens to wander away from your task, at least it will have something beautiful to gaze upon! We suggest using colourful wasabi tape to attach magazine clippings.

Add a pop of block colour with a chair, notice board, or lots of functional accessories.

And lastly, if you really want to add some magic to a shared workspace, you can't go past a colourful throw acting as a curtain or some fun feature fairy lights!
