LOVING :: Tinker by Printink Studio

Last year I bought a gorgeous screen printed canvas bag with metallic foil from Tinker by Printink Studio, which I have been using constantly ever since. At that stage they didn’t have products available on their website, but now that they do I’d love to share them with you. Melbourne-based Jason Cesani and Nadia Husiak are the creative force behind Printink Studio. They design and hand screen print everything in their Collingwood studio in keeping with their passion for hand made products that are locally crafted. Tinker by Printink Studio products include home furnishings, fashion accessories, children’s wear, fabric and wallpaper.

Their gorgeous bedlinen is designed to be mismatched together in a lovely contemporary eclectic way.

LOVING :: homewares store Shelter 7

I follow Stephanie Somebody (aka Stephanie Stamatis) on Instagram – along with 135,000 other people! – and when she posted a photo of the new Shelter 7 collection last week I was compelled to check out their website. These images were styled by Stephanie and shot by Tara Pearce and they make me want to jump right under those divine crochet throws, grab a good book and relax in the sunshine. I want to move in!

Shelter 7 curate and make quality products that are well designed, unique, and beautiful, as well as being ethically made. They have a shop in Geelong, Victoria, as well as an online store… don’t blame me if you make a dent in your credit card!

Look at that luscious cream crochet rug! And I really love the crochet pendant light too. The beautiful simplicity of a restrained colour palette…

LOVING :: The everyday luxury of linen bedding

I’m a recent convert to 100% linen bedding and I don’t think I’ll be able to go back to cotton now. Currently on my bed is a white linen doona cover, linen sheets in natural and extra linen pillowcases in a beautiful soft dirty pink colour. I love the those tones and colours together, and the feeling of sleeping in linen is – as dramatic as it sounds – life changing!

I was interviewed by Adairs as their May Style Editor and I shared, amongst other things, my thoughts on the everyday luxury of linen bed sheets and essential oil linen spray.

Disclosure: I already owned and loved the Vintage Washed Linen pillowcases in pink, and the white linen doona cover. Adairs kindly gave me the Vintage Washed Linen sheet set and essential oil linen spray. I only ever accept products that I genuinely love and will use and that I know you, my readers, will be interested in too.

LOVING :: and o design

Melbourne-based Japanese artist Yumi Ando handcrafts beautiful porcelain jewellery and interior accessories under the name and O Design. Yumi’s creations are inspired by the natural world, industrial forms and her Japanese background. Every piece has such a pure and refined form which the minimalist decoration suits perfectly. You can purchase these and other gorgeous and o design creations in Yumi’s Etsy shop and Made It shop.

Added to my wishlist! Do you love them too, and do you have a favourite and o design piece? I’m finding it difficult to decide, but I’m leaning towards the bowl and the jewellery box… oh and those spoons! The neckpieces! Let’s just say I’m still undecided.

I’m flattered to be included in this group of talented women and to have my work so beautifully shot with theirs. You can read more about all the artists on the Temple & Webster blog.

I created a small range of limited edition decorative vessels for the artisan’s market which feature ceramics together with tactile textured elements of leather and raw edged linen which are stitched, woven and crocheted. I enjoyed experimenting with the ceramic element in combination with the texture and contrasts of the other materials and techniques, and I love how they have evolved and turned out.

The Temple & Webster artisan handmade market is online for this week only, and the featured items are available at a reduced price during this time. This is the first in a series of handmade markets that Temple & Webster will be running this year, so sign up for their newsletter and stay in the loop. I have no doubt the talent in each themed market will be amazing. A huge thank you to Temple & Webster for supporting and showcasing handmade in this way, and to the always lovely Jacqui Fink for asking me to take part, for her love of handmade, and for seeking out and championing talented Australians.
