Homewares that show your personality
A home is warm and inviting and reflects the reality of daily life with all it's idiosyncrasies. Perhaps your favourite chair is looking worn and tired, but it's comfortable and perfect for curling up in at the end of the day. So it stays and is layered with a throw and cushions. The coffee table has magazines, a book or two plus coasters for the drinks - it's the right height so you can reach it comfortably.
We bring furniture and homewares that you can add to the home and reflect your own personal style. In a world where sleek hard surfaces of computers, tablets and smartphones are constant, we want to provide you with beautifully textures fabrics that you want to touch. I want to show you fabrics in cushions, chairs and quilts that are made by artisans. Fabrics that play on the senses, with patterns being mixed into a landscape of colour, shape and texture.
I am passionately committed to seeing artisan skills being retained and artisans obtaining sustainable economic independence. I do this by finding people who have the desire to improve their life and of those around them. In India I have connected with some inspiring families and I work with them to improve their business and assist them in finding ways of expanding their revenue.Follow my treasures on Facebook and my blog as I post photos of our transformations and discoveries.
My style is certainly eclectic and appreciated by those who like the tribal or bohemian mix.
I'm inspired by resources such as fabric, woods, metals and want to experiment with them on furniture in a way they may not have been seen before. Sometimes the outcome is wonderful and other times it was an educational experience.
I love books, learning to read at an early age and spending much time on my own, I have always had a volume or two as my companions. So you can imagine my excitement when I tripped across a book called "Gypsy - A world of colour & interiors" by the Australian stylists Sibilla Court.
The New Year has started with a burst of colour, and the current trends are pointing away from drab and dreary neutral tones and more towards the use of warmer, brighter hues around your home. From living rooms to bedrooms we are now starting to see delightfully colourised accents ranging in colour from lime green to deep amethyst, overshadowing the popular neutral tones of 2013 with their wonderful power of attraction.
