electric confetti

I have fallen for the neon delights of Electric Confetti 

Electric Confetti is the work of Melbourne-based designer and illustrator Natalie Jarvis. Each artwork is created in the fresh modern medium of LED neon.

Electric Confetti was created as a fun and inexpensive way to bring the nostalgic feel of vintage neon advertising into the home.

the pot plant man – caring for fiddle leaf figs

MRJG-591_LR1

Everyone including me still loves a fiddle leaf fig, the super star of the plant world, indoor plants certainly are more than a trend and are a great way to decorate your space.

My friend The Pot Plant Man shares his first guest column here on MJG with how to look after everyones favourite and forever in style indoor plant.

Here are the Pot Plant Man’s top tips

Lets start with the basic needs of caring for your Fiddle Leaf Fig.

Water:
I water my Figs when the top 50mm of soil (2 inches) is feeling dry. Do this by sticking in your finger and giving it a feel. Soon enough you’ll work out how often you need to water. Keep in mind this my fluctuate based on the change of seasons.

Light:
Keep your Fig in bright indirect light, which means that the light beams are not hitting the plant directly.

Soil:
Ensure that your Fiddle Leaf Fig is potted in rich, well-draining soil. I mix in a slow release fertilizer and a well composted chicken manure which mine seem to love.
When the soil looks tired I refresh it with some more slow release fertilizer and good quality potting mix dug into the top.

Fertilizer:
During the growing season (October-March). I use a liquid fertilizer every fortnight. I find this gives mine the best results. It’s important to remember to not feed your plant during winter.

Cleaning the leaves:
Because your plants live indoors they don’t get a regular wash from the rain like thier outdoor friends. This leads to an accumulation of dust which stops the plant from breathing. So what I do is give it wipe over with a soft damp cloth about once a month. This will help your Fig breathe happily.

All in all your Fiddle Leaf Fig will be happy and healthy if you pay attention to its needs on a regular basis and show it some love.
Happy gardening! from MJG and the Pot Plant Man!

I wear a lot of hats and have a few different job titles and description, stylist, author, creative director etc…

In celebration of his recently announced co-ownership with denim brand G-Star RAW, ‘Head of Imagination’ Pharrell Williams (possibly the coolest job title right?! ) invited a select group of guests to visit the ‘RAW Factory’ at G-Star’s Amsterdam HQ, giving them an all access peek inside the brand at the forefront of the denim industry.

Williams opened the doors to his new denim home at G-Star HQ leading guests through a variety of spaces including the brand’s vast archive of vintage workwear and military garments, in-house atelier, and denim lab. Guests were fully immersed in G-Star’s progress – rather than heritage – driven world of denim, showing them creations from the fabric, as they have never seen before.

The event follows last month’s announcement of Pharrell becoming co-owner of G-Star, following two years of collaboration between G-Star and Pharrell William’s company Bionic Yarn on RAW for the Oceans, a collection made using the first denim from recycled ocean plastic.

Pharrell Williams: “I’ve been working with G-Star for several years now. Through our RAW for the Oceans project with Bionic Yarn, I saw their commitment to creating denim that has a positive impact on our planet. Together we experienced the feeling that there is so much yet to be done with that fabric. It is latent with potential, and that is why we took our relationship to the next level – I want to be a part of that journey. I believe in the future of G-Star.”
