Terrazzo Trend June 03 2019, 0 Comments
Terrazzo (Italian for “terrace”) dates back 8,000 years, to the Venetians. As a cost-cutting measure, construction workers would take smashed marble chips and set them in clay. These days terrazzo is made with chips of marble, quartz, granite, or even glass set into a matrix of concrete or epoxy resin. The chips can actually be quite large, and the matrix and the aggregate can be almost any color you can imagine, which makes for a myriad of design possibilities.
Terrazzo creates a lot more interest than using plain grey concrete. A soft green tone for the wall or a subtle colour tone acts as neutral for the walls. Add minimal matte black finishings for a raw look.

Natural Healing and Wellness March 25 2019, 0 Comments

Smith & Daughters: A Cook book (That Happens to be Vegan)
Smith & Daughters ignores convention in favour of plant-based creativity in the kitchen. Shannon Martinez and Mo Wyse set out to build a restaurant that’s fun and full of life, and where good food is served - that happens to be vegan. Shannon comes from the perspective of a carnivore and creates dishes that replicate the tastes and textures of meat that is the opposite of bland, predictable vegan food. Across 7 chapters, including big plates, small plates, salads, sweets, dressings and drinks, Smith & Daughters offers 80+ delicious vegan recipes with a Spanish twist to recreate at home. Recipes include ‘chorizo’ and potato, Spanish ‘meatballs’ in a saffron almond sauce, chipotle cashew ‘cheese’, ‘tuna’ and green pea croquettes and avocado and corn icecream.
The Carly Bag
Big and beautiful - combines our favourite jute macrame techniques with one of our other favourite things – the style and sounds of the 1970's. And so the name is inspired by iconic singer and feminist Carly Simon.
"All men are created equal and all women are created equal as well...In the realms of man/woman, man/man, woman/woman love, it seems all up for grabs now. We are exploring so much, but I think we gotta go for the fight for all equality first." ~ Carly Simon
Each layer is intricately twisted and knotted by fair trade artisans in a remote rural community of Bangladesh. A bamboo ring handle adds comfort and true 70's style.
Roomy and full of our trademark texture and natural raw materials, these bags are the perfect addition to your relaxed modern boho wardrobe.
SIZE: 65cm at widest point x 41cm high 10cm side gussets for extra room 15cm diameter bamboo ringAlthough delicate in appearance, this bag has been crafted to last. Jute changes colour in the sun, so store it away from harsh rays.
Desert Rose Crystal
Desert Rose is a flower-like sphere that has been slowly etched by the desert sand. This crystal contains layers and layers of so called “pedals”, resembling a blooming red rose.
Desert Rose is believed to quiet worries and promote mental clarity. Despite its gentle appearance, this stone embodies sturdy strength and assistance in standing your ground. This stone allows one to have heart-centered thoughts and brings clarity to understanding one’s own emotional body. It is believed to build strong decision making abilities and inspire truth and honesty. Allow this stone to provide you with a soft energy to sooth and calm the emotional and mental body.
Having a Desert Rose nearby at home or in the office can help to remove energy blockages, strengthen decision making and aid in bringing prosperity to business. This stone will support you in your journey to realize your dream.

Relaxed Living by Mint Interior Design February 27 2019, 0 Comments
This modern Australian dining area came together just as I like it. A relaxed place to gather family and friends to enjoy the simple things. It is flooded with natural light & joins so well with the outdoor space. We added some subtle line art with a block of blush, rattan chairs and jute table runner all available in store. We had a local furniture maker Rustique Vintage make the table for us from reclaimed timber from old demolished buildings. A beautiful oversized pendant rattan pendant really set the mood.
