New Things

Sinks of my technicolour dreams.
(If you’re lucky enough to be seriously shopping, these are the new Azzurra Colors 1250 range of ceramic sinks)

I’m immature in Fine Art Years. What I mean is, I’m not sure I’ve ever found a single piece of art I would happily spend thousands of dollars on. Until now. Australian photographer Brooke Holm first popped onto my radar through the interior photography she’s in demand for, but its her newest body of work that stopped in my tracks and has me ready to put a big purchase on the credit card. Mineral Matter is a series of fine art aerial photographs Brooke shot in Iceland. All prints are showing at and available for sale through Modern Times gallery in Melbourne.

I like everything Australian homeware brand Sly does, especially their new Harlan limited edition side table with its terrazzo top. Think this would be especially cool in a bathroom.

Arise step stool by Copenhagen-based Million, and their just-launched Arise bench. Yes to all.

I love the series of Tone Cabinets by Norm Architects for Zilencio – the colour palette, the fabric upholstery (which actually acts as a sound-dampening material to reduce the acoustics in a room), the fact they come in your choice of three sizes and two heights, the handles (close-up pic for you above, because I need you to see those handles), and the square tray they each come with. All boxes ticked.

I try to keep one beady eye on Australian designer Rachel Castle at all times. You never know when she’s going to pop out with a new something lovely, like these new burnt-sorbet cushions. I’ll never say no to a pom-pom.

I’d love a drinks trolley as storage in my kitchen. This one, the Trace trolley by Australian designer Adam Goodrum (available from Tait), is designed for outdoor use. I’d choose black for my place, but I’m all heart eyes for that burnt coral version up there.

Happy weekend, kids!
