This season Oon goes bolder and brighter with their latest collection entitled 'Falgun'. Falgun is the Nepalese calendar month synonymous with the big colour festival 'holi' which is held at the beginning of each spring. The collection is inspired by the ideals of the festival - both the experience  and the observance. The colours of 'holi' are bright, contrasting, fun and joyous and that is exactly what the 'Falgun' collection embodies.

We love Oon's use of geometric patterns and tailored stitching, which are paired back with the use of natural textures, simple structures and organic shapes. Throughout the range their is a juxtaposition of carefully considered textures all perfectly complementing each other.

The AW18 Collection is all about celebrating colour by encouraging the use of bold colours, mixing and matching patterns and shapes and making a statement with interiors.

Oon continue to stay true to their core values by using traditional techniques, such as 'kantha' stitching from India, while always adding a touch of their signature contemporary style and edge.

Featuring shags, tailored stitching and organic shapes alongside muted shades of hazelnut, soft pink, navy with dashes of red and gold, we just know that you are going to love this range just as much as we do!

Elsternwick House by Fiona Lynch Interior Design

The grandest of entrances leads you into a breathtakingly beautiful transformation of a Victorian Home, Elsternwick House is absolutely stunning. 

"As the client was encouraging of our exploration of colour, we took an evolutionary approach from room to room. Soft, earthy clay in the lounge melds into rusty brown in the adjacent study; through to a dining room swathed in striking blue." says Fiona Lynch.

The Design Edit - Beautiful furniture & homewares

 

We love finding new, innovative and design savvy brands to share with you, so it’s time to introduce you to my fav new find!  The Design Edit is the latest boutique furniture and homewares store to join the interiors space in Australia and can we just say that we are soooo excited that they have arrived!

With a beautifully curated collection of high quality pieces, as well as a dedicated platform for showcasing the handmade creations of local Australian designers, this is the new destination for online interiors.

Melbourne based and family owned, The Design Edit was conceived by husband and wife team Jason and Danni Tan who developed a love for furniture and homewares while designing and building their own home. It was during this time that they were inspired by the transformative power of well selected furniture pieces and The Design Edit was born.

The Design Edit has a curated collection of pieces that includes functional and timeless Scandinavian inspired wooden furniture, iconic replica designer pieces, and stylish homewares, something to suit everyone’s taste, style and budget.

“When curating products for The Design Edit, we only consider items that we’d personally put in our own home,” says co-founder Danni. “When you purchase one of our pieces, you are making that item a part of your life and inviting it into your home – that’s a big deal and it’s a privilege we take seriously!”

Every piece of furniture is of exceptional quality and made from premium materials, such as top grain Italian leather, soft cashmere and solid wood.

The complementing homewares range features beautifully designed, timeless pieces from leading, well-loved brands such as Amalfi, LindDNA and Zakkia.

What we love even more about The Design Edit is that they are showcasing the unique works of talented Australian artisans, supporting local designers and giving them a platform to display their beautiful creations. In the Local Designers Range each unique piece has been lovingly and locally handmade by independent Australian designers, making them truly one of a kind, something that will stand the test of time and become part of your homes identity.

So if you are looking for your next item of furniture, something to add a punch of personality into your space or the perfect gift for a loved one, The Design Edit is your one stop shop!

A designer furniture collection from interior stylist Sarah Ellison...

 
New Wave

For a long time I have been a fan of uber stylist Sarah Ellison, mostly for her work in Real Living Mag, where she worked as a senior stylist and the style director for over 7 years and also for her down right spot on eye for styling amazing spaces. During her time as stylist she has been on the forefront of interior trends, curating them as well as making them.

Therefore we feel that her latest venture is the perfect fit, a furniture collection all of her own – entitled New Wave. It features furniture and accessories that are inspired by her local Bondi Beach, from key furniture pieces for your lounge room and kitchen, to 70's inspired mirrors and ceramic sculptural pieces. The range is truly impressive, has a distinctly relaxed modern feel and aesthetically is right up my alley!

The collection consists of an array of materials, such as linen, my personal fav terrazzo, marble, brass, leather and travertine. All of these elements work harmoniously together to bring this collection to life, and wow is it divine!

The New Wave collection by Sarah Ellison is available from Sarah’s website, and exclusively through Clickon Furniture nationwide.

"We don't know about you, but we can already see ourselves sprawled out in the Oscar chair, feet hanging over the side, book in our lap. We're relaxed just thinking about it, actually. Mmm..." says Arro Home.

“Inspired rugs pair with monochrome cushions and revamped Arro favourites meet with modern twists. We introduce a versatile new colour-range of velvet ottomans alongside our lounge chairs and sofas. And we lift the layers on our entire collection with tasselled cushions and rugs.

ARRO-Home-007.jpg

""Go on. Put your feet up. You've earned it," is what the Aloft ottoman would say to you if it could. Who are we to argue? In a sumptuous rust velvet with a subtle sheen, you'll wonder where this ottoman has been all your life. Also comes in Small and Tall." says Arro Home.

"With its tassel texture and jewel tones, the Miette Rug (centre) is one sassy showstopper! Whether you pop it in your living room or your bedroom (or your office, or your dining room), this woven kilim rug is sure to make your space feel special." says Arro Home

Rug Edit... let's go neutral!

 

I'm always being asked if I have a favourite rug, rug brand, style, material etc... and the quick answer is no. And that's because we are all so lucky to have sooooo many options to choose from when shopping for the perfect rug - and what you end up choosing completely depends on the style of your room, the size,  the colour palette and the furniture.

I have created a Neutral Rug Edit for you to check out today - some have pattern, some have detail and some are more simple but the main thing is that they are all super gorgeous, so basically there's something for everyone!

Interior Trend Predictions for 2018... by Lucy Given from LUC. Design Store

Lucy Given is one busy lady. Not only is she paving the way for homeware interiors at her amazing LUC. design store in Hobart, she was also recently named the first ever ‘Retailer of the Year’ at the 2017 Gift and Life Instyle Awards.

Having over 25 years experience in both commercial and residential interior design and retail - Lucy knows a thing or two about what’s happening in the industry, on a national and international scale. This makes Lucy the perfect person to lead several education sessions at Reed Gift Fairs in Melbourne this August. Each session is tailored specifically to those within this ever-growing industry.

In preparation for the Reed Gift Fairs Melbourne event, Lucy has shared some of her professional interior trend predictions for spring/summer 18 with us... scroll down!

Scandinavian influences – this is an interior trend that has continued to flourish and evolve over the years. Interior trends for 2018 will combine Scandinavian designs with a much more paired back sensibility. This will include the use of vintage/timeless elements (think classic furniture and lighting from the 60’s and 70’s) teamed with a touch of glamour in metal, leather or glass  – creating a sense of comfort and luxury in the home. There will be less of the pale timbers and soft greys this season, and more walnut, natural leather and textural hides.

The return of colour – trending across the industry is the return of bold colour choices and the resurgence of layers and textures. There is a shift in the shades of colours we are used to seeing and a move toward earthy tones, metallics and shiny surfaces that reflect a sense of luxury and wealth. You can also expect to see lots of pink trending this season and more specifically millennial pink. Green will continue to remain a strong trend, however it will take on softer shades of sage, soft pastel celery and avocado. Dark interiors dominate with moody greys and intense blues - which makes me very happy.

The mix of colours with textures – this season we will continue to see the pairing of colours and textures, which includes velvet and natural textiles that will be emulated throughout linens and wools. Along with this, there will be an inclusion of leather, metal accents, concrete and glass mixed with other natural elements such as plants, timbers, stone and textural fabrics. 

Marble and natural stone – Expect to see the pairing of marble and natural stone this season, with black being the new white when it comes to marbling. Keep an eye out for stone finishes and tones of grey and black, along with thin profiles in bench and table tops. Black kitchens will also become huge. 
 

All of these trends and more will be showcased at Reed Gift Fairs Melbourne in August 2017. http://www.reedgiftfairs.com.au

Luxe lights to love...

 

Parachilna in outback South Australia is a long way away from the Spanish design scene, but they both have one thing in common: their stars shine bright.

The lighting brand Parachilna may be named for the remote desert town, but its decorative lighting is known around the world. Parachilna debuted at Milan Design Week in 2014 with an inaugural collection by superstar designers Jaime Hayón, Stephen Burks and Jordi Veciana. Each brought their personal style to their work for Parachilna and the design community duly responded.

Wallpaper* awarded Parachilna Best New Brand 2015 and the lighting company has since continued to create a range of products that are distinguished by luxury materials and fine craftsmanship.

6 tips for how to choose the right sofa for you...

 
  Felix by Globe West  - Nosru Interiors

Felix by Globe West - Nosru Interiors

1 – Think about your surroundings - Consider the colour of your existing floor, the colour of your walls and any other room furnishings before deciding on your sofas fabric. 

2 – What shape will work for your space – Do you need a modular sofa to fill a large space, 2 small sofas to create a zoned area, or one large sofa for a longer thinner space?

3 – Colour is key – If you want something that will stand the test of time and your changing tastes, always go neutral; this way you can change the decor items in the space to keep up the with current trends without spending thousands on a new couch each time you like a new look. However, if you are into a more vibrant look, go colourful and bring your personality into the space.

4 – What is your design style – Are you modern, beachy, traditional or eclectic? These are important questions to answer before you even start looking for a new couch… Modern, go clean lines and straight edges. Beachy, choose lighter and textured fabrics with lots of plush cushions in the same tone. Traditional go for a classy and structured sofa with some fine detailing. And if you are eclectic, try looking for bold colours, patterns or even re-covering a vintage find.

5 – Comfort is everything – As much we may love a certain look, for me comfort is #1, and if the sofa of my dreams is actually uncomfortable, I’m not buying it! You will spend a lot of time on this bad boy so remember comfort is super important!

6 – Price matters – with an investment piece such as a sofa remember you do get what you pay for. Quality is paramount with a piece that will stay in your home for usually a very long time and get used ALL the time.
