Welcome to the wonderland home of Mr and Mrs Charlie. Charlie Kinyon, an artist working in Austin and Sydney and Melissa Ninham creator and maker, weaver of wire and rope and dreams. Together they create and explore. This is a way of thinking, a way of living, a way of creating beauty, an expression and a statement. I love it. I wish I could live like this. (At least for a few days…. I think that is all I’d be brave enough to do.) Finding beauty in the old, the odd, the found, the discarded. You can see more on their blog and their instagram.
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.
One of my favourite vintage shops in Sydney, quintessential duckeggBLUE has a new (two issues so far) online magazine, The quintessential Magazine. If you love all things found, industrial and antique then you are going to love this small but beautifully curated and interactive online offering. Shop owner Leanne Carter-Taylor and ex creative director of Inside Out magazine Tracy Lines are the creative force behind The quintessential Magazine. A perfect partnership producing an evocative collection of inspiring people and pieces.
I love this Victorian stlye home featured on Micasa. It’s completely unpretentious and filled with vintage finds to keep things casual. Gorg!
