Florence Broadhurst Printing Process

I visited the Signature Prints warehouse/showroom last week and was lucky enough to watch their talented team printing some custom wallpapers while I was there. It is such a fascinating and special process. I could have stayed all day to watch! It is all done by hand, painstaking! Each piece that is screen printed needs to be aligned with the piece before it so that it’s a consistent print the whole way through, one millimetre can throw the whole thing out….. This peacock feather print is a custom colour for a little girl’s bedroom. Lucky her!

Design Hunter’s 1st Birthday Celebrations

 

Last Thursday night I attended the Design Hunter’s first birthday. is a gorgeous homewares and furniture store in Bronte run by Mel Bonney, a super talented interior stylist and designer. Her store is one of the most beautifully styled and merchandised I’ve seen in Sydney, Mel’s eye for design is just fab! If you’re in Sydney and haven’t found Mel’s store yet, it’s so worth a look.

How amazing was the cheese and fruit display…. YUM!

Client Project: Inner City Vertical Garden

The ‘after’ pic we are hoping for!

A fortnight ago I met with a client who has renovated a gorgeous little apartment in Sydney’s Eastern Suburbs, she had done a fabulous job but when it came to the courtyard she was stuck for ideas so called me in. I will admit I don’t have much experience with courtyards but we both had some great ideas and now we are getting stuck into putting our plans into action. One thing we are definite on is a vertical garden.

These guys – – were featured on a few weeks ago and look like they do a great job so hopefully we can get this vertical garden up and running in no time!

Have you ever installed a vertical garden before? Do you love it? Do you have any tips?!

Instant Greenery!

Wallpapering Your Bathroom

Last week I visited the in Paddington with a client who is completely gutting her apartment and starting from scratch! It’s going to be a fun project and my client has been watching Canadian interior designer Sarah Richardson’s TV show on Foxtel called Sarah’s House so she’s ready to take some risks and wants to have some fun with this apartment! In two hours we knocked over all the soft furnishings and wallpaper we need for the apartment.

We left exhausted and I think I know the entire fabric and wallpaper selection at Emily Ziz back to front but it was a really great way to see everything at once and put it altogether! We have selected some seriously cool wallpaper for the main bathroom that I just can’t keep a secret. This image below is actually a picture of Moroccan inspired tiles printed onto a vinyl wallpaper so we can hang it in the bathroom and it won’t warp or go mouldy! Isn’t that fabulous! I cannot wait until we start installing this project. I will be documenting the whole thing so I can share tips and tricks!

Nest Pop-Up Shop

I launched the pop-up store in November last year not really knowing how long I would run it for but it’s been super successful, especially the ring dishes, I can’t keep up with demand for them, there is limited stock at the moment so if you’ve been wanting on for a while I suggest you start clicking!

I’ve been surprised that the Bowl Overs have done so well, I took a risk on them as I’d never seen anything like them before and wondered if anyone else would use them too, apparently you do!

The are my favourites, hand poured into old Fowler’s jar, some even come complete with rusty lids!

I’m going to eventually add more to the store and am always on the look out for new products that aren’t available in Australia or not widely accessible.

If you have any suggestions of things you’ve been trying to source yourselves please let me know in the comments section!
