Online interior and homewares brand Zanui has released a new online series entitled ‘At Home With’ which is showcasing the homes of some of Australia’s favourite celebrities, which have been newly styled by Zanui.

One of the first homes Zanui has transformed is of Australia’s former Bachelorette, Georgia Love and partner, Lee Elliot. Through Zanui’s wide range of high-quality products and their impressive selection of brands that suit and match all styles, they were able to help Georgia and Lee bring their own style to life as they moved into their new abode.

“We could put certain items together, but it was the styling and those finishing touches that we needed help with to really bring it all together. We both have very individual styles so it was really fun to work out what our style was through Zanui’s offering and thanks to their expertise,” said Georgia and Lee about the experience. 

Stylist Fiona Michelon, who worked with Georgia and Lee to uncover their style and find the right pieces, says “It was exciting being involved in this project and getting to know each couple and their individual styles to help them bring their new space together. I loved being able to combine their styles to create a new and unique look that suited them as a couple in their home and being able to tap into Zanui’s amazing range made my job all the more fun.” 

Watch Georgia and Lee’s ‘At Home With’ video below to receive some expert tips of how to style your home like a pro and how to re-create Georgia and Lee’s look in your own home. See the full ‘At Home With’ series on Zanui’s website here.

Summer Fun with The Print Society

 

 

The Print Society is a design studio that produces a range of homewares and objects with bold, modernistic and geometric hand printed designs. With a focus on pattern, colour and texture, The Print Society merges modern methods with India’s age-old craft traditions to create pieces with an adventurous spirit.

Founder and designer of The Print Society, Karen was inspired after her adventure to India. It was here that she saw ancient wisdom and traditional techniques, the finest materials and metallic threads being used to create pieces of art.

The Print Society's current range invites you to step into the desert. A barren land where earthy terracotta tones celebrate the outback’s dusty terrains.

Launching in Melbourne in August, the S/S 2018 collection includes textile wall hangings, acrylic boxed framed paper prints on recycled cotton fabric.  “Think purple haze and mist, mysterious portals and folklore,” says Karen.

"It started with a home renovation….

Having completed a major extension, we continually had people unexpectedly dropping-in for a bit of a look and although the building was done, our fit-out wasn’t yet complete, we still needed furniture and other key pieces to make it a home. So to give it the quick lift it needed to make it more inviting, botanical's were my first thought!

With fresh flowers not lasting long, and knowing that the quality of artificial's had dramatically improved since 'my gran's days', I knew that this could be the thing to fill the void.

With many compliments from friends at my new faux botanical's (one even asked if they were from my garden!) and repeated queries about where I got them from, I looked into sourcing and started selling locally through word of mouth.

Fast forward a few years and house plants had started to explode in popularity, mainly because of our crazy, busy, urban lifestyles along with shrinking backyards and the growth in medium/high density apartment living. And all of these reasons meant the desire for indoor garden sanctuaries was on the rise.

Identifying a gap in the market for high-end potted faux botanical's, I turned my attention to plants. My idea was to create a designer potted faux botanical collection that appealed to people with an eye for quality.

Blown away by the life-like features of some species but hugely disappointed in the quality and style of vessels they were displayed in, I decided to source, curate and pot up my own... and so started my journey to 'change the face of faux, one pot at a time...'"

HOW TO: Get the Bohemian Look In Your Home

If you have always wanted to achieve that sought-after Bohemian look for your bedroom, or even for a stylish addition to your home, we have a selection of stunning products from ZanuiLaForma and BlackArrow to help you get started!

TOP TIPS - to create the Bohemian look in your home by the BlackArrow Co girls, Jessi Deakin and Sarah Yarrow.

Break the rules. You don’t need to coordinate every colour, piece or pattern. Don’t be afraid to improvise - the more the merrier (to an extent)! Layers of texture, patterns and colours is what makes it so eclectic and charming! The key is knowing when to stop and pull back so as to not have every single piece overpowering the next. You want to ensure key elements are still able to stand out and act as a focal point in the greater scheme.

Create a story. Choose colours, patterns and textiles that have a history and tell a story. The bohemian style is all about global-inspired and collected elements. Pair treasures from your travels with vintage Moroccan rugs and cushions to nail the spirit of Bohemia!

Get creative with your wall art. The traditional framed artwork certainly has its place in the bohemian home, but you can mix things up and take your bohemian vibe to the next level by adding other types of wall art such as shell necklaces, macrame wall hangings, rattan display shelves and Juju Hats.
