I have had a long standing obsession with mountains, well mountains and forests really. I am a bit of a nature lover but there is just something that draws me to those environments. When I see a beautiful photographic image of a mountain I just feel instantly at peace. I have incorporated those elements in my own home in the form of photographic prints and my son's bedroom has born the full brunt of my obsession with his mountain and forest themed room! On instagram today I saw these absolutely stunning ceramic pieces by the Australian based studio The Fortynine and to say I am smitten is an understatement! Three of my loves; mountains, ceramic and blue combined!

A little while ago I came across some gorgeous homewares that are designed and produced by a little company out of Taiwan called Nak Nak. Beautifully designed objects for everyday use is a mantra that this company goes by in all their products produced. From their family metal workshop, their range of objects are made from steel and the most beautiful colours of powder coat. On my wish list is the 'shelf' mirror, a perfect object for those areas that are tight on space but still needing something well crafted. Also I just can't go past their storage boxes. I have long loved perforated metal and these are perfect for my home. A small white one for stashing all my design mags in the lounge room and that blush colour has to go and live in my little baby girls room! Serious love!

At the moment I am seriously crushing on the beautiful rugs by Broste Copenhagen. Featuring woven leathers and metallic threads they are too good to resist and I will be investing in one very soon, once I can make up my mind as to which one....

Another year has started. I can't believe how quickly it has come around. This time last year I was planning my epic trip to europe, what an adventure that was and one which heightened my love for design in general. So another year starts and thus begins the new forecast of trends in design. At a recent party, I was fortunate to meet an incredibly talented designer who happens to be Tom Dixon's right hand man, and he told me that copper is on the out! Which only confirms really, that one should never invest too much into trends. My philosophy is to keep the base pallette simple, invest in key furniture pieces, rugs and lighting; don't be trend driven here, it will date all too quickly. Then layer with objects that can bring in those punches of colour, texture and/or metallic finishes into a space.

So what is going to be big on the agenda this year? Well I still think the return to more artisanal crafts will continue, with ceramics and weavings. Boy I am such a fan of a beautiful piece of pottery. I have invested quite a bit on some in the past year. They certainly add a layer of warmth and texture to my home, while supporting the artists of this very important craft. Along with the aforementioned, I feel that natural materials, marbles, timbers, leathers etc will continue to make their way into homes. Paint colours for walls, furniture and objects will still feature, soft sages, peaches, and dusty pinks but I think dark bolder colors such as deep greens and blues will present themselves too.


Plastics may come in to the fore with the use of 3d printing technology creating different and obscure pieces especially in the realm of lighting. Combining plastic with the use of old techniques such as crocheting brings a modern twist to an old art form.

So I shall leave it at there and I will re read this post at the end of the year and see how right or wrong I turn out to be! Happy New Year!

I can't get enough of these guys, every object and interior is just utterly sublime. I have a few of their items in my own home and can testify that they are truly works of art. I have just recently purchased the "Milk' lamp, pictured below, and I am rather smitten with it. The attention to detail is just beautiful and the way you can easily adjust the level of lighting makes it such a feature in the space. Below are some more examples of their stunning work and more pieces that I am lusting after!

One of my all time favourite finishes is marble. I  think I like any product that is in a natural state like timber or leather or yarns etc. The incredible thing about marble is the longevity of it as a product. Where man made products will break down over time, marble will continue to thrive and patina with age. Just take a trip through Europe to see! Marble is a very versatile material and is constantly used in new and inspiring ways. I love how marble can be an inclusion in everyday items to furnish your home. Here are some of my favourite objects that combine marble with other equally beautiful materials;

Combining copper and marble doesn't get any lovelier. One of my favorite objects at home are these gorgeous Chunk candle holders by Menu

These lovely little wall hooks are made from untreated ash with a polished marble inlay. Found via The Coolhunter

This magazine rack is completely drool worthy! Tan leather and marble collide in the most stylish way. Seriously lusting after this for my own home! Saddle Magazine Rack by Noble & Wood
