Brand new online is the Blacklist for Kids collection and I am super in love with it! Classic Blacklist typography and cute graphics combined in a series of prints, wall flags and cushions. Check out some images from the collection below and click through to their website for pricing and availability.
The new collection In Love We Trust also launches today and I desperately want the Paradise print! Golly gosh, how nice is it…
Have you discovered the work of artist Anya Brock yet?
I am completely smitten with her budgie series! The beautifully colourful works are painted with loads of texture, paint drips and expressive dots (So up my alley!). They are so bright that they really pop on the canvas and would liven up any wall guaranteed.
Her work is available in many forms too, everything from original Acrylic on canvas pieces through to prints, trays and plates. The original works are very well priced for artworks but I just love that the budgie plates only cost a mere $20! Crazy! You could easily mount these on your wall if your budget and space limitations didn’t allow for one of the bigger pieces.
If you love what you see, check out Anya’s website for her full range which covers many different animals, girls and geometric prints.
Although we are heading into the cooler season here I am grasping onto the summer lifestyle and loving the thought of picnics, relaxing outdoors with plenty of nibbles (and wine!) and the company of some good friends.
And who better to invite to the party than the Fatboy Picnic Lounge! This huge oversized picnic rug looks more like an expensive Persian Rug and is guaranteed to up the ante at your next picnic. It is a generous size of 82 x 107 inches and has a couple very handy features. A carry strap for easy transportation, four big red pins to anchor the rug in place and the Fatboy label is in fact a handy pocket to stash your keys, phone or valuables and keep them safe and secure! How brilliant is that?!
The picnic rug is made from polyester, which isn’t a bad thing as it allows the rug to be durable, easy to clean and weather resistant. It also comes with a little brush so you can sweep away any sand or crumbs!
The Fatboy Picnic Lounge retails for $249.00 and is available in Australia through Design Public (International shipping is also available!)
Today I have a particularly appropriate Autumn post for you!
Verterra is an American company that create this amazing disposable Dinnerware from Fallen Leaves. Yep, you read right, fallen leaves! The dinnerware is created from fallen Palm leaves sourced from plantations combined with a mixture of steam, heat and pressure. The salvaged leaves are an agricultural by-product which would otherwise be burnt, so this is a very nice sustainable solution which is a brilliant alternative to harvesting trees.
The result is these beautiful plates which are durable enough to withstand anything you dish up at your dinner party, without the need for added toxins, bonding agents or glue. They won’t go limp and soggy like those paper plates and they contain no nasties like the plastic versions. And in case you weren’t already impressed, the dinnerware is also oven proof and microwave safe!
After use the plates will naturally biodegrade within two months, completing the natural cycle of a leaf as it composts and returns to the earth. Now that is some stylish, eco dinnerware!
