New Things


Aussie homeware brand Sage x Clare have recently launched their newest collection, Terra, and it’s more of the same 70’s-feel-good feels and colour folk party. Wishlisted piece: this rainbow bath mat.
See the whole Terra collection here.

Spotted and loved the work of Turkish potter Zehra Balci (@maitoinenhome) – especially her latte-glass style ceramic coffee cups. Buy online here.

 A new outpost for Melbourne Gelateria Piccolina. The St.Kilda space was designed again by Hecker Guthrie.

These incredible images are actually huge photographic prints by Australian photographer Stuart Cantor. They come in various XXL sizes (up to almost 2 metres wide!) framed or unframed. I’d pick a print from Stuart’s newest Amalfi Forever series – capturing the iconic beach clubs of the Amalfi Coast – for my wall, but his Venice series is also incredible.

From the holy. freakin. incredible. files – the new Paramount House Hotel in Sydney. An old Paramount Pictures building (and film storage warehouse), transformed into a small design-lead hotel. The visionary founders (who are also behind some of Sydney’s best cafes) tasked Breathe Architecture with turning the old industrial space into 29 guest suites.

The hotel lobby – a light-filled atrium – was once a film storage vault (Spot the tap there? That’s for your welcome drink)


Real linen by Cultiver for an at-home feel

Sofas by Jardan

A beautiful mix of materials: Japanese-style timber baths alongside terrazzo tiles, brass tapware,
thick linen shower curtains and steel-framed glass walls. 

The Loft rooms have their bedroom on a mezzanine level

Love the hotel robes (the pink type on the back says HOUSE) . Toiletries are by Aesop.

As if the interior design weren’t enough to convince you to stay, there’s a green grocer, coffee house, arthouse cinema and more on site, incense available at the front desk, mini bars stocked with Australian-made Negroni cocktails and local cheeses, and if you don’t want to be disturbed, you put a sign on your door that states: “This Is How We Chill From ’93 Till…” Um, it’s like they made this place for meBook a stay at Paramount House Hotel here, and definitely follow the hotel on Insta. On my travel wishlist now for sure.

I want one of these Steele canvas baskets from Mur.

Lenny cafe in Melbourne, designed by Golden (interior design duo Kylie Dorotic and Alicia McKimm).
Extra appreciation for the hand-painted artwork that runs down the length of the space.

Um ok, I lOvEeeee this little step stool from Murmull

Ro Skin store and treatment rooms – places like this can take all my money. That wall shelving system with its rattan panels is especially beautiful.

Look what Frankie Magazine made: Look What We Made. Another Frankie mook, this one charting the skills, inspirations, workspaces and day-to-day life of 38 Australian makers over 256 XL pages. From hatmakers and brewers, to potters and jewellers, textile artists, illustrators, musicians, weavers, cobblers and a whole lot more. Buy here.

New Butterscotch bedding range from that clever woman Rachel Castle.

I need all the sconces from Allied Maker

The best blankets and cushions by LRNCE. Loving the super-chunky embroidery.

I also need a Hourglass side table from Australian designers Fenton&Fenton.

Gah! This makes me want to I-Dream-of-Genie myself to Henley Beach, Australia. Bowlsome is one of the finalists in the 2018 Australian Interior Design Awards. Kudos for the interior goes to Williams Burton Leopardi (P.S: the taps serve sparkling water, cold brew coffee, or kombucha) and the branding was done by Black Squid.

The latest project of one of my all-time-fave interior architects, Hecker Guthrie. Piccolina is a legit gelateria in Melbourne’s Collingwood, channelling 1950’s Southern Italy. Fave bits: the deepdeep green grid tiling, the original terrazzo floor, the huge wooden letterboard menu, and that archway in the wall – an original part of the historic building – and the colour palette of the brand, pulled from the Italian flag. That central bar/counter houses 24 stainless tubs of 24 artisan gelato flavours

 

Brand by – so as far as I can tell – Melbourne graphic design studio Projects of Imagination.

Loving the work of Melbourne maker Tantri Mustika (on Insta, @tantrimustikaceramics) – a modern spin on terrazzo tiling

Super nice branding and packaging (by Pearlfisher) for the world’s first true non-alcoholic distilled spirit. Served in over 100 Michelin-starred restaurants and top cocktail bars, and now available in New Zealand from our friends at Cook & Nelson.

Be still my minimalist heart – handwash and hand cream (they do laundry care liquid too) from Australian brand Ms Brown.

I’ve shared the other Fonda Mexican eateries with you in years past – they’re always at the bleeding edge of interior design. This is Fonda’s newest outpost and the first outside of their hometown Melbourne – Fonda Bondi. (That sounds fun on your tongue!)

Ypperlig mirror by Danish design legends Hay for IKEA. Only around $40-50 and I’M HERE FOR IT. Also comes in an Arch shape, in green, which is highly relevant to my current interests.
