Beautiful bathrooms start with a stand out vanity...

 
Loughlin Furniture

 

We loved loved loved the recent ‘Two in Twelve’ series by The Stables and one of our favourite features of the whole series was the beautiful bathrooms which both featured timber vanities from Loughlin Furniture - so we obviously just had to share their quality and stunning designs with you.

Loughlin Furniture, founded by Rob Loughlin, designs, hand-makes and manufactures individual pieces primarily from solid timber. They specialise in custom-designed pieces and also have a range of beautiful vanities, front doors, mirrors, barn doors and more. Rob Loughlin is a true craftsman who has a real passion for working with timber which began 20 years ago when he first started working with slab timber, and the business grew from pop-ups at the Paddington Markets into the in-demand business they are today.

“Natural elements possess inherent beauty. Our process is to enhance this natural beauty and celebrate it, giving new life to the raw material as an individual piece of furniture.” 

Check out some of our favourite designs of theirs below or see the full collection here.

Stunning contemporary living on Sydney’s Northern Beaches...

 
CC_21edwin_L_12.jpg
 

A 1940s beach house on Sydney’s Northern Beaches has been transformed into a three bedroom, two-bathroom, contemporary family home. The Avalon property belongs to the creator of bellaMUMMA, Nikki Yazxhi and her husband Adam, Creative Director at MAXCO.

After nearly 15 years in the family home, Nikki and Adam decided they would either need to sell in favour of something larger or renovate the existing house. “With our two boys aged 11 and 14, we were at a crossroads of whether to sell and buy something bigger, or stay in a house and area we love and renovate to make the house suit our family’s lifestyle." says Nikki.

Friend and interior designer, Nina Maya was engaged to direct and style the home renovation. Following two previous renovations, this final makeover involved the family moving out for three months so that the house could be gutted and rebuilt. To achieve the simple and elegant interior, a refined palette of neutrals was chosen, using only natural materials such as European oak flooring, marble, stone and brass.

Nina designed a space that maintains the home’s original charm, while maximising the indoor areas with added storage. The original wall separating the living area and the kitchen was removed, and to increase the connection to the outside, full-height glass bi-fold doors were installed on the back deck and skylights were used to boost the amount of natural light, provided by Stegbar. The kitchen is one of the first rooms the family had outgrown. With Adam’s love of cooking and the couple’s passion for entertaining, the kitchen was maximised and upgraded with new appliances for a modern and contemporary space that performed as amazingly as it looked. The kitchen and the benchtop bar are now the hub of the house.

The new kitchen appliances were selected for their aesthetic and functionality. “We loved the look of ASKO products first off, then we started doing some research and watching Adam Liaw's YouTube videos and realised how amazing the appliances were,” says Nikki. “The ASKO Elements range is sleek and sexy, and we are beyond impressed by how they make life so much easier in the kitchen. I think the first couple of months we were continually impressed with all the new features that we were discovering.”

For the family, storage was the biggest issue. They needed to maximise the existing space and create extra storage in order to make the home more suitable for their growing family. Ultimately deciding to stay and renovate, Nikki and Adam put their savings towards creating their dream home featuring the highest quality building products. “When it came to choosing plasterboard to re-do our walls, we couldn’t go past CSR Gyprock’s Sensitive plasterboard,” says Nikki.

Sunday Minx launches 'Deco District Collection'...

 

Sunday Minx has unveiled their newest collection 'Deco District' which captures their principles of colour, vibrancy and design. Superbly designed and crafted by Brooke Rudzis, the new range includes Bath Towels, Hand Towels and newly introduced Bath Mats. 

Sunday Minx’s collection has been inspired by the unique interpretation of Art Deco found in South Beach Miami. It is a city that blends traditional art deco design and sophistication with the fun, frivolity and tropics of a coastal community, making it an epicentre of Art Deco Architecture and restoration. Intricate lines and elegant geometry of the Art Deco era helps to create a collection that blends pure Gatsby glamour with tropical chic!

Sunday Minx Towels set the benchmark for intelligent design and will stand the test of time. Made in Turkey using 100% Turkish cotton, each towel is a thick and luxurious terry towel of 600gsm.

Brooke says, ‘Turkish cotton is an incredible material. Delivering amazing softness, excellent absorbency and fast drying fibers, we knew this was the superior cotton we needed to source for our collection. Our towels are a delightful luxury to touch and use everyday!’ 

 

Meizai introduces Ex.t... Live the bathroom differently.

 

This bathroom collection is blowing my mind... it is EVERYTHING! Can we please talk about the black steel detail, how good is it?!

The Frame collection by Norm Architects for Ex.t is a modular system of bathroom consoles and furniture, suitable for the bathroom and beyond. The collection, available at Meizai, was created for a new market which is more and more asking for versatile bathroom furniture.

It features a straight and minimalist design and is a flexible system consisting of a number of black graphic frames which are customisable depending on your needs. The main steel structure is designed to accommodate the basin as well as a counter top in various materials such as wood, LivingTec®, marble and stone, while the inside allows you to hang a varnished wood cabinet or a drawer for storage.

You can view this stunning collection in store at Meizai now, or online www.meizai.com.au

Lumiere’s Art & Co has launched a new collection that is just divine. Named 'Elanora' it means place beside the sea and it was shot on location in at their new Lumiere Art + Co. House on the Mornington Peninsula, Victoria.

The house is a unique property that is furnished and styled completely with Lumiere's Emma Cleine's textiles and art, all designed and made by her. Incredibly you can now rent this beautiful property and as of 2017 Emma will be offering workshops from here too... time to get your creative juices flowing! 

I made and designed every artwork and textile in this home for this home. I mostly loved designing the girls room with the bunk bed. The double sided quilts and artwork I made for this room with strong line and painterly florals mark a new direction for Lumiere, however, its still so true to my style and aesthetic,” said Emma.

The collection ranges from art to textiles and is as colourful, intricate and beautiful as always.

I'm calling it - this is Ninnho's best collection yet! 'Forever Ninnho' encapsulates two collections, 'Diamonds' and 'Skulls' which both draw upon gorgeous rosy tones, precious jewels and luxury. The collection was inspired by Antoinette Ferwerda’s original painting titled ‘King’s Jester’, painted and exhibited in 2014 during her solo exhibition in Melbourne. 

'Diamonds' was inspired by Antionette's interest in precious stone formations and it's linear pattern reflects light with it’s rosey gold sheen. A timeless colour palette in warm gold and soft grey.

Skull design took months to perfect and the textural detail from my mixed media painting is expressed beautifully in this woven design.  Subtle and enigmatic, it’s my sentimental, favourite artwork to share with you.” says Antoinette. 

Available now.. so go grab yourself some of these beautiful soft and gorgeously designed beauties!

If you’re anything like me you absolutely love and may be a tiny bit obsessed with having your kitchen, bathroom and laundry looking perfectly styled at all times… well let’s be honest, as often as humanly possible with life getting in the way! So please let me introduce to you Organic Choice – environmentally friendly, sustainable premium household products that not only offer a healthy alternative to other home cleaning products – but their packaging is super modern, sophisticated and minimalist and looks so fab when displayed in your home!

This beautiful range of products are developed right here in Australia, from the belief that products can be both effective, and sourced from sustainable and natural ingredients. What’s even better is that they are so affordably priced, Australian made, and conveniently available at your nearest Coles nationally. Oh and did I mention that they are not tested on animals and are palm oil free… YAY!

After giving these babies a vigorous going over in my own home I just love the fresh fragrance of the products, which is created by the addition of natural essential oils; but my ultimate fragrance is the Multi-Purpose Cleaner – Lemongrass & Australian Myrtle. It’s natural, fresh and so distinctively Australian and trust me it makes cleaning the house just that much better when you’re surrounded by lovely smells and when you know that these products have been created with no harsh chemicals in the formulation, safe for you and your family. 

Product wise I am obsessed with the Air Fresheners – they smell divine and not only do they fragrance the air, they can be used to freshen up your sheets and bed linen too… so add a little guilt free luxury into your everyday life by spritzing your linen and jumping into fresh sheets, is that not the best feeling in the world?! And let’s not forget how lovely it feels when you get home after a long day, put your feet up and light a candle, the aroma wafting around and helping you wind down… try the West Indian Lime and Coconut, so delicious you want to eat it!
