A few collections, finds and projects from our busy month past…
Each year at this time I ask myself how I could possibly consider a more favourite season than Autumn. With an Indian Summer lingering, there have been signs of Autumn creeping into the landscape with fallen drying leaves, silver skies and the very welcome fog and coolness to early mornings.
I have some really exciting projects in the pipeline for this year where I get the opportunity to share my images and stories of our landscape and creative scene. Today I’m really thrilled to be featured on the new and lovely Hearth Magazine, a place for stories and beautiful imagery from all over the globe, celebrating life and our everyday moments. Stay tuned for more as I contribute over the year, both online and – in print!
I’ve really been enjoying “vignetting” over on Instagram these last few days as part of the #7vignettes Interiors Addict challenge. It’s all about story telling with grouped objects and it’s something I love and just get lost in. Here’s my entry for day 2, inspired by colour. Definitely loved using a brighter palette for this – something I wanted to do more of this year anyway!
Yellow placemat by Madras Link (on wall); Koko Ambrosi bowl, Aztec trinket tray from Sportsgirl; Message in a bottle by O-Check, paper heart handmade (for those Inside Out fans it’s a crafty project found in the recent Summer issue!).
Last Saturday I had the pleasure of shooting the new spring look book for Ally from Vintage Valley. We spent the day in a vintage picnic setting surrounded by old records, vintage prints, fresh strawberries and of course the gorgeous pieces Ally has collected for her new range for the warm months ahead. She is such a natural in front of the camera and made my life easy! And wouldn’t you agree Ally has that classic vintage pinup look down perfectly?! Make sure to keep an eye on her site for the official launch of her lookbook, but in the meantime here is a sneak peek of some of my favourites from the day…
Yesterday was a pretty exciting first for me so I’ll enjoy the moment while I can Bright and early we took a trip to the nearest deli to pick up a few copies of the Sunday Times, to unveil a finished print featuring my styling work not only on the cover but also the inside cover of Home Magazine! The gorgeous Alpine Villa by Dale Alcock proved to be a beautiful backdrop for the finishing touches and I was so pleased with the results of the shoot.
Just a quick little shout out about another feature of my work recently. A big thank you to Pippa at Pippa Jameson Interiors for featuring my work on her blog. I am also really lucky to be a regular contributor – Pippa has been a great mentor for me in terms of blogging and styling. Ok that’s it for features for a while! x
For those of you who enjoy flipping through The West Australian’s ‘Habitat’ lift out with your Friday breakfast, you just might have spotted in last week’s edition a little contribution from yours truly! I was thrilled to be asked to contribute to the feature, especially when it involved showcasing my top products to recreate two of my favourite styles, vintage retro and boho eclectic.
A huge thanks to all those who assisted and supported me with my very first published piece!
