And Kip TINY doesn't miss out, think padded play mats, fab cot sheets, and the softest bamboo swaddles to keep your little ones cosy all winter long. 

 

Hunting for George transform converted warehouse apartment for the launch of their newest collection 'Welcome Home'...

 

Shot on location in a converted Gas Regulating House in North Melbourne, Hunting for George's latest collection 'Welcome Home' is every bit as stunning as the apartment itself!

New textiles from Hunting for George feature new materials including linen, chambray, quilting, wool and leather together with their signature pure cotton. There are many stand out pieces in the collection so it’s hard to pick favourites, but some of my picks are the Polar Quilt Cover Set with diagonal quilting. The Sunday Wool Blanket made from 100% wool and the luxurious Leo Navy Leather Cushion, a dreamy deep blue leather cushion with detailed piping.

The newbies in linen include Quilt Cover Sets, Standard and Euro Pillowcases and Tableware in classic White and Charcoal. And their newest must haves are the Leather cushion accessories which are available in Tan and Navy.

The Oliver Coffee Table makes its debut as the latest addition in the Hunting for George Oliver furniture range, all Australian made and available in soft white and matte black.

Complementing the all new linen tableware, sees the launch of Hunting for George Ceramics, handmade in Melbourne and available in 3 different products: Planter, Tumbler and Espresso Cup Set.

“We fell in love with this apartment. It’s height, grandeur and age were so welcoming. The open floor plan allowed us the freedom to transform the entire home and tell a comprehensive story. We have a extensive range of products for all areas of the home and we really wanted to showcase this.” Lucy Glade-Wright, Brand Director

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.

Hunting for George ‘Clifton’ Summer Homeware Collection...

 

The latest homewares collection from Hunting for George encapsulates all that we love about Summer. It’s relaxed, nostalgic and has a comforting simplicity. The collection titled Clifton is named after a sleepy coastal town in Tasmania where Hunting for George co-founders and sisters spent their childhood summers. And growing up in Tasmania myself I have an extra soft spot for this collection.

The collection includes new bedlinen, quilt sets, sheet sets, euro pillowslips, cushions, floor cushions, tea towels and prints. Summer means entertaining and entertaining means getting stuck with drying duty when you’d rather be falling into a post-feast slumber. You’ll be looking fine whilst doing the time with the double trouble Tea Towel combo: Cove and Village tea towel sets are 100% cotton, machine washable and super convenient for flicking unsuspecting passers-by.

They have also welcomed the Lounger Floor Cushion, made from indoor/outdoor friendly canvas, it is the perfect addition this summer. The Clifton Quilt Set is the everyday cool customer with an enigmatic smile, understated, super chill and always there when you need him. The Bobby Quilt Set is the extrovert of the bunch, offbeat and whimsical - moving sideways, never straight because no one likes to be predictable.  The Miami Quilt Set is the optimistic cheerleader, always upbeat and with its volume turned up. 

“I wanted this collection to represent everything we love about Summer holidays. Our fondest memories are from our holiday’s spent at Clifton Beach. Extremely understated and surrounded by nature. I wanted our designs to reflect the simplicity and calm energy of that time.” Lucy Glade-Wright, co-founder.

“My favourite design is the hero of the collection, the Clifton Quilt Set. It has a quiet energy and a casual nature which is everything that a summer holiday should be.”

New designer profile... Charlie and Fenton

 

Welcome to Dot + Pop Charlie and Fenton! As the newest designer to join the D+P family we would love to show you what this fab brand is all about. Charlie and Fenton are an independent textile studio in Melbourne Australia, founded in early 2013 by Isabella and Jannah. This collaboration brings together their collective backgrounds of over ten years in the Art, interior design, textile technology and set design industries.

Our beginnings were simple, just two friends who met working in the textile industry a few years prior. Between us we realised there was a strong desire for an increase of independence and creative initiative within our working lives’, the only way this seemed achievable for the duo was to go out on a limb and create something new and decidedly different from what was currently on offer within the textile industry.

‘We wanted to offer people high quality, unique soft furnishings in a market that is so saturated with throw-away poorly made goods. In Australia we know great quality exists but where is it and how do we get our hands on it? Great design should be inclusive and accessible, that’s what this store and our approach is all about!’

And that's exactly what they have done, welcome to my life Charlie and Fenton... I'm in love, but I am a marble addict! Scroll down to check out their collection, click their link to see even more from this talented duo or to shop click here now!
