Melbourne-based Botanical Wares Studio IVY MUSE have just launched Calypso, their third collection to date. Drawing inspiration from the Tropics with striking shapes, patterns and colours, the gorgeous new range includes four new plant stands and an exclusive range of complimentary hand­-made pots by Victorian ceramicist ​Ana Maria Jensen. Calypso also sees the release of two exciting and versatile new products, the Table Top and Plant Shelf. A collaboration with Sydney­-based Design Twins completes the incredible new line up, with a hand­-painted lightweight concrete Harlequin Pot.

Those who have been following TDC since the early days will know how much I admire the work of Kristina Krogh. An incredibly talented graphic designer and artist, Kristina runs a multidisclipinary arts & design studio based in Copenhagen. Her limited edition art prints, paper goods and objects can be found internationally in over 70 design shops and have been featured in numerous publications including Elle Decoration, RUM Magazine, Plaza Interiör, Residence, Inside Out, The Sunday Age, Red Magazine and The Nordic Courier. Excited to receive news of her brand new collection, the artworks are a true representation of Kristina's unique style, mixing geometrics, contrasts, patterns and distinctively different textures. The incredible location and styling add to the overall effect which is quite simply breathtaking.

It's been a busy two years for Lauren Roe who launched her Melbourne-based business I love Linen just two weeks after her daughter Olive was born. Teaming up with two friends, it has since morphed into a fully fledged creative studio, where the design team works with local and international weavers, screen printers, sewers and artisans to bring together a carefully curated edit of well-made beautiful basics and extra special unique items. Lauren also designs her own brand The Bedroom Society, with their latest range being the biggest to date. A gorgeous mix of Printed Bedlinen, Pure Linen Bedding and unique hand stitched reversible Pom Pom Coverlets, the colour palette features classic white and charcoal with peach and mint. Perfect for summer, the pieces are designed to mix and match, blending patterns, colours and fabrics together for a bright and playful look.

Lastly, I have a new blog discovery to share with you. Based in Finland, The project Verkaranta blog centres around the renovation of an old factory building with the beautiful new kitchen featured in Finnish interior magazine Avotakka. It's easy to see why!
