flower by Dinosaur Designs

Im loving this latest collection by Aussie Design Heroes Dinosaur Designs.

As always there is a beauty in simplicity this one is all about the shapes – the inspiration is apparent Flower.

I was lucky enough to recently visit their London and New York Stores where Flower was in store in full bloom.

aquabumps art insitu

Just when I feel like I have been away from Bondi for ages heres a little something from Home…

I have know the awesome team behind Aquabumps Eugene and Deb since moving to Bondi – I like their style, I have even styled their Home for Inside Out Magazine, remember it was on the cover…

Eugene is Bondi’s best photographer no one quite captures Bondi like him.

Aquabumps have an awesome Gallery space in Bondi and also sell prints (frame and unframed) online. Since discovering his work we have for ages talked about a collaboration and have wanted to create some insitu room shots to show you how good these artworks are going to look in real spaces. So we set out creating some real room sweet ups to showcase the art.

Buying art is hard enough but then having to visualise how its going to look can be tricky for the best of us – so hey presto here you go, we created some beautiful images so you can have a better idea of how these awesome prints ( I have two of my very own) will look on your walls!

My number one tip for Art at Home – size matter think big!
