west elm shelfie

Storage is key for work or home or in my case both.

Shelving is great for storage and for display. These West Elm White Washed wood and metal shelves do the trick for me at home. They are on wheels and have great deep/high shelves perfect for me to display and store all of the items i need.

new dinosaur designs moss collection

Dinosaur Designs Duo Louise Olsen and Stephen Ormandy launch their newest collection, Moss, just in time for winter.

Moss is inspired by the dewy undergrowth of an autumn morning, with a wonderful palette of lush greens reminiscent of ancient mosses that carpet forest floors and thrive on the rich soils that lie underfoot. Hues are balanced, restful and soothing, combined with jewellery and homewares forms inspired by earth, rocks and flowers.

Moss introduces new classic brass jewellery and homewares, rendered in shapes that connect directly with nature. New Organic Ball earrings and necklaces, for example, draw on dewdrops for inspiration and paperweights evoke the smooth contours of stones.

tom blachford – midnight modern exhibition

Everyone knows I LOVE Palm Springs its one of my happy places!

Midnight Modern captures this special place with a truly unique eye in a very special light!

Melbourne based photographer Tom Blachford latest solo exhibition is the reward  of months of rigorous and dedicated negotiation to gain entry into ­to ­access Kaufmann House house in Palm Springs, California.

Using moonlight as his sole lightsource, Blachford’s portrait of the the Kaufmann House is one of fifteen famed Palm Springs homes featured in his first Sydney solo show, which is the third installment of his M idnight Modern series. Shot over two separate trips in 2015 and 2016, the series is a unique portrait of iconic mid­century houses and rare cars, executed in Blachford’s signature cinematic aesthetic that he has developed over seven trips to Palm Springs.

The work in Midnight Modern seems to sit outside of time. The scenes, devoid of any people, create a stillness that shines a spotlight on the architectural and cultural significance of the homes, yet leaves the viewer with a sense of unease, a sense that a story unknown may be going on behind closed doors.

Among the houses included in the series are Frank Sinatra’s Twin Palms Estate, the Wexler Steel houses and the Frey II house.

“To me, Palm Springs is like a living shrine to a lifestyle of sun, cocktails and hedonism. It has functioned for so much of its life as a Mecca for lovers of design, and I wanted to capture a darker side,”

Tom Blachford’s Midnight Modern opens 24 May 2016 – 11 June at Black Eye Gallery in Sydney

upstairs at the beach road hotel

Design firm Luchetti Krelle has recently completed an extensive renovation and breathed new life into the large upstairs area at The Beach Road Hotel comprised of two bars known as ‘The Valley’. Luchetti Krelle have transformed the space into a more relaxed, urban beach bar setting adding colour, polished concrete floors, timber panelling, greenery, cane furniture and leather banquettes throughout. Images attached.

The east side of the floor has the best midweek and weekend DJ and live music roster in the eastern suburbs. The west side of The Valley offers a more refined setting and is more of a eatery and cocktail lounge with light timber finishes, white tiled bar tops and soft leather lounges. The west side bar highlights include seasonal cocktails using the finest local and international spirits.

From Wednesday 25 May Sarah and James Robbins, the team behind Bar Luca /BL Burgers will take over the upstairs kitchen at Beach Road Hotel. The kitchen /menu offering will be referred to as BL Burgers Beach Road.

west elm bedroom update

It’s getting a little cooler here in Sydney, so with the change of seasons its the perfect time for a little bedroom update. With a little help from the awesome team at West Elm

Some new bed linen, a new bedside table or a lamp, nothing drastic (although I’m thinking i want to paint the walls grey) is needed just a freshen up. In winter its great to add layers and texture. Im not a fan of a bright bedroom colour palette. I always stick to greys, blues whites and neutral or perhaps a soft stripe. The bedroom should be a relaxing dreamy space.

Why not cosy up and update your bedroom

Bedlinen, cushions, lamp and bedside all from West Elm
