Safari inspiration

Working on next Winters range and i'm totally inspired by luxury Safari's, rough wood, earthy textures, natural tones; back to basics in a totally beautiful way. Shades of Greys, Taupes, Greens, Off whites, all mixed back with organic materials and that touch of outdoor escape. If you'd like to dream check out Mr and Mrs Smiths range of amazing destinations!

Spanish Influence

Hola! I am off to Spain in 2 weeks with my husband for a holiday and we have started learning Spanish (its a pretty speedy course so hopefully we will pick up something?!) and im also practicing my Spanish cooking skills, I actually love the food of Spain, and cant wait to travel around trying tapas from the various areas (and the vino!) tonight we are cooking an Andalucian lamb stew with Saffron - if this beautiful image is anything to go from we should be pretty happy in about 2 hours!

Perfect finds for the Gift Fair!

We have been frantically getting ready for the Reed Gift Fair, and over the weekend I found some perfect additions to our stand at the Daylesford Antique Market! If you are visiting the fair make sure to come and find us at Exhibit A - Stand X1918 at the Melbourne showgrounds - the Fair starts Saturday! Hope to see you there! 


Last weekend I was lucky enough to be taken on a surprise weekend away, thankyou lovely husband! And on our travels we visited the wonderful Cliffy's in Daylesford, above. Cliffy's is a fabulous produce store and restaurant that was totally inspiring - they use local produce and the restaurant is tucked away beside the store - layers of cushions & candles - we felt like we were welcomed into a cosy dining room - and I experienced some new vegetables that I haven't cooked with before - bring on the Kale receipes! and I love the menu on the paper bags!
