Indoor plants are back - Ivy Muse

If you were a child of the 70s and 80s you most likely would have grown up with pot plants as part of the decor in your house. I still remember the maiden hair fern in our bathroom! After disappearing from our interiors for quite some time, indoor plants are making a come back in a big way.

I’m a huge fan of stylist and online retailer Alana Langan, aka Hunt & Bow, so was very interested to see the details of a new venture with longtime friend Jacqui Vidal. These talented ladies have launched botanical wares studio Ivy Muse

Geoscapes is their first collection of limited edition pot plant stands. There is nothing daggy or 80s about these designs, proving pot plants in our interiors can be very cool. 

Featuring geometric-inspired designs, the intensely-coloured steel stands offer plant lovers maximum creativity to showcase their greenery in and around the home or workspace.

Each design in the inaugural collection is available in Matt Black and Matt
White, plus a limited edition colour unique to each design.

Priced from $130 - $140 each, depending on the design chosen, they can be ordered online here.

New textile brand - Oliochi bed linen, cushions and baby blankets

This year I’ve been studying at ISCD, which for me has been a wonderful way to connect with many women looking to turn their interest in design into something more. I’m always excited to see one of these creative ladies achieve their goal, and so very happy to share a new textile brand with you today.

Oliochi is the brainchild of Elizabeth Logan, who has translated her love of surface design and textiles into a business. Oliochi is all about fun and vibrant colour. Elizabeth sources original fabric designs to create beautiful bed covers, cushions and baby blankets.

Bright nursery and kids bed linen from Goosebumps

I think most of us love a bit of colour for a nursery or kid’s bedroom, and my discovery for today delivers just that. New Melbourne based bedding company Goosebumps is fun, vibrant, and just a little bit cool.

Goosebumps was launched earlier this year by Inga Rodd, a busy mum of three year old twin boys. The range is designed to be able to mix and match brilliant colour and fun prints, and includes sheets, doona covers and pillow cases for cot, single and double sized beds.

Love it!

This week I'm loving... Scandi design at norsu interiors

Its no secret that I am a huge fan of Scandinavian design. norsu interiors is one of the best online homeware stores bringing Scandi brands here to Australia and, although I’ve featured them on the blog before, they have some great new products to share.

They stock some of my favourite Scandinavian designers - By Nord, Fine Little Day, Louise Roe Design, OYOY Living Design, Pia Wallen and Sne Design, just to name a few.

I was very excited to see they have now also added Danish brand ferm LIVING and the soon to be launched Swedish Rebel Walls wallpaper collection.

All photography by Armelle Habib, styled by Julia Green from Greenhouse Interiors.

This is a business born from a passion for good design, with two young mums going out on a limb to create something unique. Nat Wheeler and Kristy Sadlier have just celebrated their first birthday as norsu interiors, and are celebrating by adding a bricks and mortar store in Melbourne, opening in October.

I wish them lots of luck with this new part of their business, and can’t wait to see more.

All her patterns start out as photos of colourful things in everyday life. They are then digitally manipulated to create the vibrant designs.
