Updating your home for Summer

The days are getting warmer and the holiday season is just about to hot up. It's almost summer in Australia and New Zealand! Is your home looking washed out after winter? Does it need a little zhush before family and friends get together? Have no idea where to start? Luckily I had the chance to ask Korryn Bentley, homewares buyer at Freedom to help with a few timely ideas.

What are your quick and easy tips for breathing fresh life into your home for summer?

I’m a fan of overhauling my winter block out curtains with fresh white sheer curtains. It’s inexpensive, quick and easy and will make a striking impact to your room.

I’m also getting my green thumb on and doing a freshen up in the garden and repotting my planters with new colourful petunia’s. That burst of colour is the perfect ‘WELCOME HOME’ – and even if you’re just potting up some succulents, your pots can add the pop of colour – perfect for Summer.

These are for you

I just wanted to say thanks for dropping by each day. This blog has taken me on such a wonderful journey and given me my creative moxy back. So much so I have done something very exciting and a little scary. I have opened a new bricks and mortar store in my home town of Ipswich, Queensland with my good friend Kerrie. Faded Empire, Shop 2, 17 Ellenborough St, Ipswich in fact. A contemporary shop with an old soul. Fashion, furnishings, flowers and of course interiors. I promise there will be pictures to come but we are still tweaking a few things. (What am I saying! The doors are open but the new lighting isn't in. We are still awaiting some stock and the cabinets for the jewellery are in pieces but we are close, very close.) Here are just a few of the flowers I put together for Mother's Day last week. They may be a few days old but I hope you don't mind ;)


Dutch Design Year

Marleen wrote us about a shop in the Netherlands called Dutch Design Year and while we try to stay away from blogging products, these shots are fantastic so I thought I'd break our rule this time because I love me a great photo! (P.S. I want this pendant lamp!)


THE quintessential MAGAZINE

The Collector's issue of THE quintessential MAGAZINE is full of the inspiring, the found, the unusual and the beautiful just like the store that gave it birth, quintessential duckeggBLUE. Dinosaur Designs’ Louise Olsen talks about the inspiration behind her new Ocean collection. Überstylist Glen Proebstel captures the magic of heartfelt treasures in New York and author Karen McCartney reveals how a misspent youth in London forged her style. And then there are the collections! Bobbins, bread boards, shoe lasts, potato mashers … how ordinary things can be extraordinary.
