pendant light hook from little bishop

Love this clever idea from Little Bishop

Designed and hand carved by Antony Richards of Hunter & Richards in Melbourne Australia, the Little Bishop was first released as a Kickstarter project on the 3rd February, 2015.

The first ceiling hook designed specifically for cable hung pendant lights, the Little Bishop positions and holds your pendant light fittings in saintly style.

Skilfully shaped and cast by hand, the cable is guided to “cloak” the Little Bishop with no knot, and a seamless hang from the ceiling makes it genuinely unique in form and function.

The Little Bishop is currently available for Pre Order, due for shipping after Wednesday 1st July, 2015.click here to buy

assembly label bondi store

I love supporting local and I’m totally into creating a sense of neighbourhood, I get my coffee in the morning from my local I love seeing familiar faces…

Fashion brand Assembly Label has taken up permanent residence in Bondi. Their flagship Bondi concept store is a lesson in minimal but relaxed casual style and they certainly have the plant / fashion balance all worked out. I love the simple white, timber and introduction of greenery indoors into a retail fashion space – yes Im still mad for indoor plants!

Head in store for mens and womans fashion, accesorries, plants and a small selection of home wares.

denver and liely

Im not a huge fan of whisky but I’m a big fan of supporting talented creatives just starting out who also make and design beautiful things. Case in point Denver and Liely and their beautifully designed whisky glass…

The Denver & Liely (D&L) Whisky Glass came about when  Designers Denver Cramer and Liely Faulkner teamed up  and began an exploration into the diverse and often mysterious world of whisky. Wanting to improve on the drinking experience by exploring the deepest, darkest depths of their whisky collections the Denver & Liely Whisky Glass was born.

Traditionally the tumbler has been seen as the vessel of choice for the majority of whisky drinkers and the ‘whisky snifter’ relegated to the small group of true whisky tasters. D&L have now combined these worlds.

The hand-blown shape of the D&L Whisky Glass combines the benefits of taste and smell associated with a traditional whisky snifter with the versatility and style of a classic tumbler.

The wide base maximises the surface area of a standard measure, funneling the aromas through the tapered body to the optimally sized opening. This reveals the whisky’s full character.

The D&L whisky glass is perfect for however you choose your drink – Neat / on-ice / cocktails – whisky the way you like.

Its seems this is where design, intellect and hard work combine perhaps with a few drinks along the way!

Cheers to these guys and their awesome design!

Check out Justina’s Blog The Jungalow

So here we go…

where do you live?

We just bought a house right near the river in Los Angeles, CA

how would you describe the look of your home?

I call my home The Jungalow, because it’s wild like the jungle, but cozy and homey like a bungalow. I tend to layer colors and patterns and include plenty of greenery. I like to mix old and new to create unexpected vignettes. I am a maximalist, and I love mixing pieces from different cultures: a kilim rug with a kantha-covered ottoman, and a Moroccan wedding blanket next to a Mexican serape and Japanese ceramics—that’s my global jungalicious vibe.

what is your favourite thing in your home?

My daughter.

what do you collect?

Really, anything that makes me happy, and plants- lots of plants.

In L.A. I love to walk down Abbot Kinney and Vermont in Los Feliz.

Wednedays are fun. I work during the day and take my toddler to the korean spa in the evenings, then we take jacuzzis, brush our hair and then eat ramen. It’s awesome.

Flea markets. We’re lucky to have so many great ones in LA.

Also: color, plants, good food, good health, my husband, good people, travel, painting, suzanis, sharing, laughter, movies, Game of Thrones, Instagram, Summer, puzzles, friends, Swimming, beaches, the smell of Meyer lemons, scrabble, and my book hitting the New York Times Best-seller list :D.

road testing the fiat 500

Thanks to the awesome team at Fiat Australia I have been road testing the fun Fiat 500 in Mint Milk shake, ok yes matchy matchy can be ok! as it pretty much matches my favourite place to swim in Bondi – Icebergs Pool!

The Car is super fun to drive around, it’s  compact but not too small, which makes parking so much easier too and the rear boot is surprisingly large ( a definite stylist requirement)

I have been enjoying zipping around Bondi and you just can’t not smile at this perfect pastel shade of mint!
