“Palo Santo”

It’s no secret I’m somewhat a (modern) hippy – I practice daily meditation with The Broadplace I’m attracted to candles, crystals and burning sage. Well my latest discovery thanks to my friends at Totem Road is “palo santo”  these lovely timber sticks from Peru can be burnt to promote good luck, clean your house of bad energy and enhance relaxation and best of all they smell beautiful

paradise found

Ok so not every job I work on is this special, last week I spent 2 amazing days on the border of Queensland and NSW in Paradise at what can be only described as a magical property in a lush bush setting owned my some of the nicest/loveliest people you could ever meet ( I mean who every gets such marvellous floral leis as a thank you gift when u leave!) It was a house shoot for a publication but it was fully immersive for me and the team I worked with.

To be honest my work/life looks petty awesome on Instagram (the whole point of the edit right?) I look super busy always ( I am) but always have time for new projects – so don’t be afraid of getting in touch, the truth is life is pretty good, I work hard but to be honest I always have fun, I love the life I have created. Don’t get me wrong being a stylist is HARD WORK the perception is that its a super glamorous  job with heaps of perks (true) but the bottom line being a stylist involves a lot of things that are not styling or remotely glamorous! I love my job and the reality is fabulous! and I have created this through hard work and enthusiasm and yes last week I was sent to Paradise and it was work!

new from the fortynine studio

The Desk Top Pot is a new range of indoor pots designed and made by The Fortynine Studio Drawing on the beauty of plants and the simplicity of natural materials, the bold and animated character of the Desk Top Pots brings life to any indoor space.

The design emerged from the problem of keeping indoor plants well-watered, healthy and happy; without worrying about water leaks, condensation, or the constant rotation and moving of pots.

“We really want people to be close to nature in their everyday lives, both at work and at home,” says Ben Elbourne, co-founder and designer at The Fortynine Studio. “In fact, we’ve just installed a bunch of Desk Top Pots at a new Sydney o ce development, which is really exciting for us. The Desk Top Pot encourages a strong connection to nature through both the plants, and the use of raw, earthy terracotta in making the pot.”

The pots are made to neatly t a standard 140mm plastic pot available from any nursery. This allows the plants to easily be swapped out and changed when needed. The feet allow air ow under the pot so there is no build-up of condensation, making the pots safe for any surface. The pots are glazed internally to ensure they are watertight.

The range is handmade by The Fortynine Studio in Marrickville, Sydney. Each pot is hand decorated with slip in various patterns, giving each its own unique character. Harriet Watts, co-founder and designer at The Fortynine Studio says:

“We love working with terracotta, it’s such a beautiful and workable material. It’s really fun making these pots and putting personality into each one. There are moments in the making process when you stop and really think ‘ok, what will work best with the form, character and small imperfections of this piece’”.

The pots use clay from Western Sydney and are once- red using solar power to minimise their environmental impact.
