These beautiful hand-made tiles came across my desk yesterday and I’m a little in love!
Tiles of Ezra is the creative collaboration between interior architect Georgia Ezra and her sister Micaela Ezra, a NYC designer. Their range consists of ethnic patterns and styles of the Mexican culture and embody the earthy, handmade qualities of the local artisans. Seeing a gap in the Australia market for this unique type of tile, Tiles of Ezra is bringing an extensive range to our shores which includes traditional Mexican patterns as well as contemporary versions.
My favourites are the terracotta tiles from the Clay Collective range, I can just picture them making a completely amazing feature in someone’s home. Check out some of the Ezra patterns below to see how impressive various tiles from the collection look combined to create a rustic pattern. Don’t forget to check their website to view all the other collections too!
I think this will be a very exciting addition to the Australian market for architects, designers and home renovators!

Woven Baskets are an inexpensive addition to any home and they have a multitude of uses.
Storage of course is the primary use, but have you considered using them as plant pots or as a feature wall display? Today, baskets come in so many varieties of sizes, colours, design and weaves that there really is one to suit every taste and style. Classic country to nomadic, neutrals to neon.
Aren’t we so lucky to live in a multicultural world where we can easily access items that celebrate distant cultures and lifestyles?

You might remember the super comfy Knotty Cushions by Kumeko that we featured previously here, I am still obsessed with these but do you want to know what’s new from Kumeko?
The latest addition to their range are these beautiful storage containers called the Omni Bag. Based on the ancient art of origami, they feature sewn seams which create angular patterns on the surface, but also mean that the bag can be folded in various ways to change its size and appearance. They are made using strong white tarpaulin fabric which is bound with polyester thread and coated in PVC, this combination means the containers are easy to clean and very durable.
Available in white in your choice of 4 sizes, these bags could be put to a multitude of uses around your home and would be a piece you would happily have on display.
As much as I wanted to be over the Ombre trend, as soon as I saw these gorgeous sacks by Varpunen I was totally smitten all over again. With their super cute colour choices, range of sizes, and the fact that the sacks can be used in so many different ways, just makes them a winner in my books. Made with PVC coated polyester scrim, they are fully washable and totally durable, guaranteed to stay looking amazing the ages!
Available in Australia through The Minimalist.
