tonight makes tomorrow

Sweet dreams as the sun sets, Tonight makes tomorrow…

My evening ritual includes my morning ritual (making the bed) there’s nothing  better than getting into a freshly made bed, its one of my favourite luxuries. In the evening (as my days are super busy) I try to have an hour before bed with no screens, usually a pod cast, I’m either on or off there’s not really an in between mode. Im a night owl so I usually stay up late, its often a time of thinking and ideas, I like the energy of the evening theres a sense of calm and creativeness different to the day, I like to get everything prepared for the next day, if this is a physical or even just a mental list (its always better to write things down) Im so not a morning person.

When Sheridan Australia  ask you to shoot something special you up the ante and call in someone who gets your crazy ideas

Organic, natural creativity over just styling 

Making magic with Jessie Prince 

We had a plan, but nothing over thought, threw some things in the car, found a nice spot, Jessie climbed a tree whilst I made the bed and we got the shot nothing too tortured!

Behind the scenes with Sheridan

Photo shoots for big brands are… well BIG!

Weeks of planning and preparation, meetings, locations scouting, props sourcing and praying for good weather (especially when you are shooting summer in winter)

Early starts, lots of coffee, lots of beds, linen and pillows and more and an awesome crew and assistants make for a great day and an awesome result.

Here’s a little behind the scenes look for recent work with Sheridan

Sheridan x sydney opera house

The word iconic gets (over) used a little too often these days the Sydney Opera House is iconic! and is one of my most favourite building in the world.

Take a look here at the Sydney Opera House x Sheridan limited edition collaboration

The Sydney Opera House and Sheridan share a deep history. Sheridan founder Claudio Alcorsobecame the founding Chairperson of Opera Australia in 1971, which brought the rst operasingers to Australia from Italy to perform on the Opera House’s world-famous stages.

Sheridan’s design team were invited on an immersive experience at the Sydney Opera House. Within the building they gained insights into the construction of the venue, through to the details and materials included within each of the spaces, viewing early programmes and performances as well as discovering the creative stories that contributed to the venue’s design.

Inspired by the striking architecture of the building, the art on its stages, and the natural surrounds of Bennelong Point, the team hand-painted and sketched the designs that now appear in the collection.

“It has been a rare privilege to collaborate on a range which celebrates one of Australia’s greatestcultural and design icons. This truly original collection has been designed to re ect the continuingenergy, evolution and vibrancy of this famous landmark.” – Joanna Ross, GM of Design at Sheridan

“Sheridan’s artistry, quality craftsmanship and shared history of championing the arts made ourcollaboration a natural t, resulting in a beautifully crafted and truly inspired collection. By creatingunique, bespoke pieces that celebrate the style, beauty and innovation of the building itself, our visitors can take a piece of the Opera House home with them.” – Miriam O’Rourke,
Head of Strategic Development at the Sydney Opera House

Consisting of eight pieces – three bed designs, three artworks and two cushions, the collection is in store and online now click here to view

In bed with Sheridan

Everyone knows Im a fan of all shades of blue, I love the ocean it inspires me everyday, always.

Styling your home should be fun and not complicated – be confident in your own style and make your place great!

With the change of seasons (winter is coming) it’s the perfect time to update your bedroom, make it calm and cosy (always) nothing too difficult just a fresh set of sheets and a new quilt cover ( I selected the Hewett in denim ) and a brand new art work ( I selected Lorette Framed Canvas ) is all it takes for an easy update.

Sweet dreams in a serene bedroom with ocean inspired hues…

Ken Done for Sheridan

To celebrate 50 years in Australian homes, Sheridan honours one of their most iconic moments of artistry with a modern partnership with quintessential Australian artist, Ken Done. This August will see the release of a limited-edition collection in collaboration with the celebrated artist, transferring his art on to bed sheets, towels and cushions. The collection is a contemporary take on Ken Done’s original collaboration with Sheridan in 1987, which turned Sheridan and Ken Done into international household names. It was a truly ground breaking moment in the home and lifestyle space of that time, bringing bold art and colour into the home. The celebratory artistic collaboration is an ode to Sheridan’s unique history of supporting local artistic talent and harnessing a uniquely Australian creative spirit. Showcasing Ken Done’s signature painterly brush strokes and vibrant colours,

I have been lucky enough to meet Ken and now its your chance to… head in store to see the collection and meet the man himself!

Ken is doing a Meet and Greet + Book signing this 3rd August, Sheridan Bondi Junction 6:00-7:30pm

sheridan beach towels

Summer isn’t far away. It’s my favourite time of the year. I can’t help but be a “summer” person and not a “winter” person.

I guess I love the sunshine, the beach and this optimistic time of the year and let’s face it we all get a chance to relax and take a break.

Im looking forward spending my holiday time beach side or pooldise between Byron Bay and Bondi, of course Bondi Icebergs is my most favourite place to swim near home and a quick dry towel is perfect for the pool and something more plush is perfect for lazing in the sun.

Beach towels have crossed over to being a fashion item , the perfect accessories to the outfit of the day – never to matchy matchy but always considered. I also secretly love using a beach towel as a bath towel for an every day holiday feeling at home and an added feeling of luxury all year round you cant beat a plush beach towel.

We are all looking forward to holiday and the beach. The perfect summer isn’t complete without the perfect beach towel! I love a good beach towel whether its poolside or ocean its the summer must have. A beach towel is the perfect holiday/christmas gift for family and friends (you can never have too many)

My top 5 towels from the collection are The Wategos, Tallows Beach, Yamba, The Pass and The Suffolk Beach ( all names after cool places to swim or visit) I love bold, graghic, colourful statements beachs towels.

As always Sheridan have an awesome collection this season. Take a look below or head in store or online here
