TUTORIAL :: Make the cutest Easter bunny softies from socks

LOVING :: Indigo shibori bowls from Bind | Fold

At first glance it’s hard to tell if these indigo bowls are ceramic or not. In fact they are made from shibori dyed canvas fabric by Bind | Fold. I love the indigo and shibori trends, and these unique bowls are a step ahead of anything else I’ve seen.

My bedroom mini makeover

Technically summer is over and although it doesn’t quite feel autumnal here in Sydney yet it’s bound to fairly soon. With the change of season in mind I’ve given my bedroom a warm mini makeover with Freedom’s new autumn/winter collection.

I often like to change the colours and arrangement of my bedroom but it’s always based around white bedlinen. I know that it might not sound very wintery, but I love to sleep in white bedlinen all year round and it makes the perfect starting point to easily update the look and feel of the room. The Scandinavians lead the trend so well with their fresh white on white interiors.

My idea for the cooler months was to revamp things with luscious warm textures and a minimal soft colour palette.

It all started with the stunning copper Metro Table Lamp and the copper topped The Professor side table that I couldn’t possibly live without! I adore dirty pink (I already owned the linen pillowcases), and it goes perfectly with copper and a dash of soft grey. To achieve a cozy and interesting feel I layered textures: crumpled linen, lush velvet, chunky wool, and metallic copper.
