Finally, a new Pick n Mix for you! (You: Jeez. (rolls eyes) About Time.


Oh, hai... 


Nordic folk brand House of Rym have a new collection, and these were my faves.

Weekend daydreams = a home like this: original heritage exterior, contemporary interior. Don't wake me. (This accolade-deserving home in Melbourne is by Robson Rak Architects).




I appreciate new folk. Cool things from Brooklyn-based Amelie Mancini.


Ultimate gift for the design lover who spends a lot of time in the garden. Or... for me. For my place. By Australian brand Lepaar.






Even though it's for kids, Bobo Choses is one of the brands I always keep an eyeball on, to see each new collection.  Unknown Mountain Journey is now online, and they have a new Woman collection (clothing), a range of super cute bags for kids and a capsule homeware collection too. Cartwheels!

New APT Shelving from NZ designers Well-Groomed-Fox







Photography by Toaki Okano & Styling by Sam Smith and Catherine Wilkinson
for HOME magazine (see all the HOME magazine design award finalists here).


Heeeey girl, hey. How nice is this new Apt. shelving system! Photographed in black and a sexy soft grey, but also available in custom colours and even in a natural timber frame with powder-coated shelves. Designed by Emma Fox-Derwin and Nigel Groom of well-groomed-fox, it's a worthy finalist in this year's Best (NZ Design) Awards and a finalist in the HOME magazine 2015 Design Awards.

Time to shine yo fancy shoes, guys, I think you might be getting some new goodies for your mantlepiece...

Solstice: impressive new collection from NZ homeware brand Kanuka








When things look this good, you don't need a lot of word-faff, so I'll keep this short....
I'm really impressed by the new textural Solstice collection by New Zealand's Kanuka Collective. Everything by Kanuka is made here in NZ. Check out the Solstice collection lookbook on their website (shot at The Brake House - one of New Zealand's most prominent architectural icons from the 70's).

Ima let you finish but this is one of my Top 5 homes OF. ALL. TIME. (From the new issue of @insideoutmag) Check it out:









Styling by Joseph Gardner (new fave) and photography by Prue Ruscoe for Inside Out magazine


How amazing is this home? Trick question. It's clean-lined and light-filled and not over done and I am totally here for it. I think we need a name for this new breed of contemporary Australasian style... it borrows from Scandinavian but has a more sun-bleached disposition as befits our NZ and AU climes. Let's call it... Antipovian. (I don't think that'll catch on somehow, haha.)

Anywhoodle, this just one of the many blow-your-face-off gorgeous home tours in the new All Things Spring issue of Inside Out magazine, which is on shelves now.

A little something to inspire you this Monday... (short film by Firetale Films)



At the risk of blogging too much about Unna and The Forest Cantina... I really want you guys to watch this and be inspired. 

To be inspired to maybe go and buy Unna's book (you'll love it), but also to be inspired to find whatever it is that makes your heart sing and then go do it. Do it a lot and don't stop. (Because here's a secret - after a time, you'll be known for that thing. And you'll be super happy.)




Beautiful short by Welly-based Firetale Films (who are also doing what they love, telling stories through film).
