And here we goooo 2017! You’re very first post and its rightfully juicy for the eyes. Milton and King is a family run wall coverings business that I am more than a little enamored with. Over the last few years they have grown a really impressive and GREAT quality library of papers and murals through collaborations with Australian and international artists. There is quite honestly something for everyone in the selection. With connections and awareness of their products widening to the global stage, they have helped this along with a

Hi everyone! This is a rather fitting introduction to lead with for the brand new year! I’m always gunning for a new slate, new rituals and the intention to look after myself much better. “Bodha is a collection of modern wellness products designed to help you come back to yourself. Based on the belief that feeling connected is the key to happiness our line engages your senses through the power of ritual and aromatherapy.” I would struggle to have introduced bodha any better than founder; Emily L’Ami does above. This

Gifting something purely handmade is super special …. but I’m pretty keen on leaving the “actual making” to the experts! In this case it would be two Australian makers with a passion for their natural environment and some skills to boot. Angus McDiarmid of Pan Pottery (based at Lake Weyba, Noosa Heads, QLD) used a traditional wood fire kiln, kick wheel and hand dug local clays for his work. Each pot, and in this instance, travel cup is completely unique as the clay and fire decide the finish. Angus has joined creative

Shuh Lee dances along the line of installation artist/ jewellery designer/ textile designer/ fashion designe/, homeware designer with glee. To me there is always a recognisable softness to her work, in the lines and texture but in amazing balance to the quirky, poppy attitude it all seems to exude via print and colour!! Love it all! Shuh has just released her new collection of bedlinen with some of that exact attitude. You can explore the pillow cases and duvets/doona’s (talking to both sides of the Tasman here!) here online as well as her

Australian brand; Sanctuary Studio is a new blip on my radar but I instantly recognised it as a beacon to the fun loving, “more is more” kids out there! (By kids I mean “you” – the one with magpie eyes for attitude, boldness and colour in your life!) Created by mother/daughter duo Anne Cook and Simone Rennard in 2015, they have led with a desire to collaborate with artists to create bedlinen, homeware and accessories that stand out in the fact its not all uniform! Their new summery offering called

We’ve touched based a few times with Willie Weston co-founders Jessica Booth and Laetitia Prunetti since they launched their business to work with Indigenous owned and operated art centres in remote communities across Australia and in turn; transform their work into modern, high quality textiles and product. Using the Rosie Ngwarraye Morton’s Sugarbag Dreaming fabric design, they have combined forces with Australian design champion; Koskela to produce these beautiful limited edition bean bags. Support some local down under design that spans from maker to producer by exploring online here. Explore more of the

Each artist (both local / international and upcoming /established) will be a surprise due to their strict embargo on information pre delivery, and each work will be a extra special limited edition piece created ONLY for eager The One Art Club audience.

I know it wasn’t long ago that I introduced the work of Christchurch photographer Stacey Weaver, and that if you follow me on my personal instagram my OWN Just South West print pops up a bit….but its because I really truly love to gaze at this work!! Just South West offers prints that approach decent size ( I love BIG!) and make for bold pieces of art. Stacey’s latest additions continue with her interest in capturing that invisible line tread by flowers as they disappear toward a slow but beautiful decay.

Oooohhh mannnnnnn! Fictional Objects has been a tried and true favourite of Studio Home for quite a few years now and the anticipation of their new collections never gets any easier to handle!
