Fantastic FIMO

I remember making beads and creatures out of FIMO (polymer clay) when we were younger. Blending the colours together was so much fun and it was like magic when your creation came out of the oven hard as rock.

Melbourne designer Emily Green has taken the art of FIMO to a much more sophisticated level and her necklaces are popular around the world, but I’m more interested in her recent collaboration with another Melbourne designer Dale Hardiman. The two creatives have worked together to develop the Up Up light, a gorgeous hanging pendant bulb that combines Dale’s industrial design skills with Emily’s gorgeous hand-rolled polymer beads.

The beads add a subtle burst of colour and texture that many other pendant lights don’t come anywhere near possessing. I think they are beautiful and would love one for our home.

The Up Up Light is priced at $249.00 (Australian) and will be available to buy through Emily’s webshop.

Still Got It {Home Crush}

How super cute are Ada and Leon Kagan?!  The fact that they even self-styled their outfits to colour coordinate their homes decor is amazing!

Kagan-portrait

The couple have lived in their Melbourne home for 57 years and much of the original decor is untouched; the kitchen, bathrooms, all tiles and tapware, cabinetry, and even the wallpaper is original. Goes to show that if you make classic choices when designing your home, your decor will stand the test of time.

Head over to The Design Files to check out the original Home Tour post and view further images.

Where do I start?! The moody, monochromatic colour scheme; the polished floor boards; the eclectic mix of modern and antique pieces; an interesting light installation that doubles as art work over the dining table… the list goes on!

The super stylish homeowners are Lisa and Mark Poulier. Lisa is a graphic designer and Mark an advertising art director – no wonder their house is so deliciously decorated!

This super creative duo are behind the unique range of homewares – Poulier & Poulier. All their designs are printed locally in Melbourne onto high quality materials using environmentally friendly inks. Their design philosophy is simple; to create timeless graphic pieces with wit and charm. It seems this philosophy has extended to their home – jealous much!

Coffee Table Reading

While in Melbourne recently we stumbled across a graffiti art exhibition and I was super excited!

After living in London for two years I have a real love for street art especially work by the legendary Bansky. His clever commentary on cultural and political issues in the world coupled with his anonymity really appeals to me.

I have framed a couple of photographs of his works that have been printed on cards and was pleased to find the gallery in Melbourne had copies of his book Wall and Piece. It now graces our coffee table but looks a little lonely so I am on the hunt for further inspirational books with fabulous images.
