Mister Moss Homewares

Have you heard? Mister Moss has stemmed into homewares!

From the makers of those amazing hanging plants bundled in bright string comes a new, equally colourful range for your home. The debut range is made up of rugs, planters and stools designed by Jenna Spence, who is the founder and senior designer of Mister Moss. The new homewares range captures that same sense of fun and vibrance that we have come to associate with the company, incorporating plenty of colour, geometric prints and clever design concepts.

My favourite pieces are the stool which can also be turned upside down to create a planter, how clever is that?! It is available in four different patterns in a whole rainbow of colour choices. But the side table and coat stand are my absolute picks of the bunch, more of a minimal, Nordic design style then the rest of the collection they just ooze class and sophistication. LOVE them!

With prices starting at just $32 I suggest you pop on over to the Mister Moss website and get shopping!

Street Smarts

My current creative crush is Brisbane based artist Matt Stewart.

Matt is a self-taught artist that creates amazing street art style works using a combination of mediums from aerosol cans, acrylics, charcoal and pencil. All his works are edgy and raw, but I love the pops of bright colours he brings to some of his pieces!

Matt’s artworks have now morphed into various other incarnations, he has designed a series of wallpaper patterns for Wallpaper Republic, smartphone covers for The Dairy, or you may spot one of his many corporate murals around Queensland in places such as NOVA 106.9 FM Brisbane or the Novotel Brisbane to name just a few. Impressive stuff!

I personally discovered Matt’s work through Fenton & Fenton, who stock some of his large artworks as part of their curated collection. I just LOVE that first Indian girl artwork!

Meet Mrs Peterson

Mrs Peterson Pottery is a Blue Mountains based business that create some very divine pieces.

A stunning range of hand-made porcelain jewellery and homewares that have me smitten with their charming irregularities, wonky forms and cute impressions. I really am a sucker for anything that shows the mark of the maker and the process it is created with!

Tell me I’m not alone, aren’t they just beautiful?

Flower Power

Just thought I’d share with you this adorable flower-pot lamp I just brought for my daughter for her 3rd birthday. Pretty sure they are the cutest night lights I’ve ever seen for a girl!

Available wholesale through Missi Missi, the lamp arrives as a flat pack. The flower and pot are made from polypropylene which is thin sheets of strong plastic. I found the lamp pretty easy to assemble, the sheets fold and clip into each other to form the shape of the flower, sometimes this required a little patience and gentle persuasion though! I may have sworn a couple of times 😉 But it was totally worth it!

Once assembled, the lamp requires a small bulb (E14 25W) and will emit a soft glow perfect for reading bedtime stories! Do you love them too?

La Lune

Last night was a little bit fun, I went to see La Lune: Energy Producing Art at Long Reef!

It is a great free art initiative by Warringah council in conjunction with the Environmental Research Initiative for Art, College of Fine Arts, and University of New South Wales located along a beautiful seaside walk on Long Reef Headland in Sydney’s Northern Beaches. The event is curated by Allan Giddy and features light sculptures by local and international artists in response the surrounding environment.

“La Lune further explores the idea of energy in art, expanding from purely solar, to energy as it is incident on site in any form. Our fantastic venue on the northern beaches is heavily impacted by energy systems, specifically tidal, solar and wind. Most of the artworks installed physically produce energy, and in these small energy systems the balance of production and load is crucial. In many ways they mirror larger scale energy production in our society, in individual homes, urban centres and countries, as all can be considered closed systems of production and load,” said Allan Giddy.

It is a great event for the whole family, the trail walk is 2km so if you are bringing little ones pack the pram so you can easily traverse the full event. The event runs from 5pm to 9pm each night until May 18. We arrived at 5pm and getting to watch the full moon rise was pretty spectacular, I only wish I remembered to bring my SLR to capture it properly for you! So please excuse the iPhone pics…
