Melbourne-based botanical wares studio IVY MUSE have opened the doors to their inredible new Emporium space. Launched on Friday, the design-driven space houses the entire collection of IVY MUSE plant stands and products, including their latest collection Boheme. This is complemented by pots, plants (in abundance!) and a curated collection of homewares sourced locally and around the globe, all with a botanical-lean to them. These include Bonnie & Neil, Studio Twocan, Karen Walker Jewellery, Armadillo and Co., Zakkia, Miniscapes, Sophie Moran, Amanda Dziedzic and more!
A truly unique showroom concept that is both holistic and inspiring, I love that the emporium brings together the work of so many like minded botanical designers and artisans. I can't wait to visit next time I'm in Melbourne!
The IVY MUSE Botanical Emporium is located at 1250 High Street, Armadale (VIC). For opening hours take a look here.
Starting today's New + Noted with some beautiful tablecloths by Georg Jensen Damask, the first was designed by Arne Jacobsen. Created from one of the many sketches left behind after his death, it was launched in 2002 as a tribute to mark the occasion of the centenary of his birth. I also love the Still Life Tablecloth in Cinnamon Dusk by Cecile Manz.
New from French Connection Home, I can't seem to go past a leather chair. I usually lean towards a broader, sling style but I quite like this boxy shape of the Leather Pouch Chair. I also love the colour and pattern of the Poppy Field rug and the shape of the aptly named Large Bulging Pot.
These next images are from an ongoing series by two photographer friends June Kim and Michelle Cho. Inspired by travel and places with poetry, geometry and a story to tell (June lives in San Francisco and Michelle in London), these images were created during trips to Los Angeles, New Mexico and Spain. Serving as a creative documentation of the places they’ve visited for others to enjoy, I particularly love the architectural element and colour palette. See more of the incredible series here.
I recently discovered Texas-based artist Claire Oswalt after reading about her in Yen Magazine. Working in both watercolour and graphite, her collage works are absolutely beautiful. Pictured below are Small Hedge and Las Piedraaas.
A glimpse at the latest collaboration between Cos and Hay, the gorgeous Autumn 2016 collection consists largely of everyday objects for the home and work, but also furniture. I can't wait to see more!
Twice a year, the Milanese furniture showroom Spotti bring on board longtime collaborators Arianna Lelli Mami and Chiara Di Pinto of Studiopepe to transform their space. Their most recent interior creation for Spotti's renovated space, Instant Panorama is more than likely inspired by our Instagram-obsessed culture. Featuring a set up of vignettes that are meant to be captured on film, the aesthetic is less defined, but it’s focused on of-the-moment trends with bold pops of rust and dark green, lots of velvet and layered vintage Berber rugs. Including beautiful brands such as Gubi, &tradition, and Areti, the interior also features a new trompe l’oeil wallpaper designed by Studiopepe.
This stunning pool and guest house in Djursholm, Sweden was designed by Jordens Arkitekter. Featured in the current issue of Residence, the dreamy scene was created on an amazing Fall morning with the first leaves falling off the trees and the morning fog sweeping over the pool. The pool house doubles as a guest house, with the main building housing a spa area and yoga room which faces out to the garden. The pool is surrounded in marble, and the house features floor to ceiling windows and a textural mix of concrete and warm wood. Ultimate poolside dreaming.
