Bold & Bright - OON release their AW18 collection ‘Falgun’

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!

A weekend styling retreat with the best in the business... Julia Green, from Greenhouse Interiors

If Julia Green had a dollar for every time she has been asked for advice on establishing a career in the interior styling world, she could very likely pack up her props and trade them in for a life of luxury.

As a leader in the industry, it’s a question Julia fields on a daily basis, from budding stylists of all ages and from all backgrounds.

So, armed with a wealth of industry information and her own styling secrets, the founder of Greenhouse Interiors decided to share her knowledge with those looking to establish themselves in this highly-sought-after field.

She recently threw open the doors to her Barwon Heads home for a weekend-long workshop where six aspiring stylists, who were given the opportunity to learn what it takes to turn a passion for interior styling into a career.

The workshop covered all aspects of the industry, from understanding personal style to working with photographers and other suppliers, as well as how to win business in this highly-competitive field. Guest speaker Samantha Firestone also shared her knowledge of the importance of digital strategy, social media and marketing.

A morning yoga session and an evening glass or two of bubbles offered a perfect contrast to the otherwise fast-paced schedule.

The workshop culminated in a professional photo shoot where participants brought to life their interior concepts using a new range of artworks by Greenhouse Interiors artists Brent Rosenberg, Morgan Jamieson, Prudence Caroline and Kimmy Hogan.

The resulting imagery showcased students’ personal style combined with their newly-garnered interior styling knowledge, and ensured each left with full hearts and minds as well as magazine-worthy folio pieces to rival the best in the business.

‘This retreat was a money-can’t-buy experience and was one of the best weekends of my life! Although we were six complete strangers and have different end goals, we all seemed to be at the same stage. Waiting at the start line, a little unsure how to actually start or to reach the next stage. Julia’s energy and passion is contagious and she quickly got everyone to open up and really trust each other in an incredibly supportive environment. Although this weekend was about styling, it was just as much about backing yourself and just going for it. By the end of the weekend, we all left with our hearts and inspiration cups overflowing – not to mention some beautiful imagery to compliment our portfolio’s!’ said participant Alex.

Bright futures, and a solid game plan now await this group of creatives armed with the passion and know how.

All Art shown here available at Greenhouse Interiors.

'Top tips for mood lighting' by ISM Objects

 
 

Lighting in your home is so important but sometimes it can be forgotten about... that's why we were super excited to be able to chat the to founders of ISM Objects, Simon Christopher and Celina Clarke about how to create mood lighting to enhance your spaces. Their tips are insightful and so easy to achieve in your own home, because creating ambience is always a good idea!


TIP 1. Use more than one light source

This is one of the most important ways to create ambience. Having only one light source can result in a stark, washed-out space, whereas incorporating different light sources, such as overhead, task, floor and table lamps, can create zones of softer or stronger light where needed.

 
 

TIP 2. Use dimmers for overhead lighting

Dimming switches allow you to adjust the level of light to suit the time of the day and function of the room. With dimmers you can have strong task lighting or gentle atmospheric lighting in the evening. You may also need to use the dimmers during the day depending on how much natural light a room receives.

 
 

TIP 3. Use warm-coloured light globes

LED lighting and new energy-efficient bulbs provide different warmths of light. A 2700K to 3000K bulb (K, for Kelvins, measures the colour of the light source) emits a warm yellow light, like an early sunrise or late sunset. This warm light is cosy, calm and intimate and a good choice for spaces used in the evening as it helps to relax and unwind.

 
 

TIP 4. Use table and floor lamps for indirect lighting

If a space doesn’t need overhead lighting, use table and floor lamps to create an intimate or casual atmosphere and environment. They can highlight areas of the room and tall floor lamps can be used to bounce light of the ceiling, effectively doing the job of overhead lighting.

 
 

TIP 5. Focus on points of interest

Table and floor lamps and accent lighting, such as wall sconces, can be used to focus on points of interest, such as accentuating architectural and decorative features, drawing attention to furniture pieces or illuminating artworks and sculptures. This creates visual focal and the contrasts between light and dark spaces adds ambience.
