You've probably already heard of Lumira, but for those of
you who haven't – let me introduce you to their gorgeously
packaged, luxe products. The majority of their range includes
candles (with scents inspired by travel - think Balinese Ylang
Ylang, Tahitian Coconut, and Tuscan Fig just to name a few.
You'll also find their latest 'Paradisium' range of beauty
products including a hand and body cream, and eau de parfum.
Founded by Almira Armstrong in 2013, Lumira is the
manifestation of Almira's life-long love affair with scent, design
and travel. The candles themselves are handcrafted using the
purest, all-natural soy wax available and cotton wicks, together
with fine essential and aroma fragrance oils composed by a team
of internationally renowned perfumers. Of course, such impeccable
ingredients deserve an equally exquisite aesthetic and just as much
care has gone into designing an exterior that is bold, original and
undeniably luxurious. I think these would make the perfect gift for
the fussy woman/man in your life. Click here to shop the range.
Today I wanted to share a campaign worth getting behind.
Feast Watson's Re-Love project is a collaborative campaign which
aims to inspire DIYers to upcycle and ultimately raise funds for
the Salvos Stores. Since April, top Australian design personalities
including Mark Tuckey, Steve Cordony, Tara Dennis, and Simone Barter
to name just a few, have been busy, transforming tired timber furniture
into unique designer pieces all in the name of charity. The reveal is a
collection of outstanding designs, each reflecting a touch of personal
style. Design enthusiasts will have the chance to own one-of-a-kind
statement furniture pieces at the eBay auction in July. Mark these dates
in your diary; the auction runs from Wednesday 8 July through to
Friday 17 July, with all proceeds to benefit Salvos Stores.
Today Adore went on sale in New Zealand bookstores and
newsagents! How exciting. The price is $14.95 and there
are about 200 stockists scattered right across New Zealand.
If you'd like to download the list click here (it's listed according
to name of city so you can easily find your nearest stockist).
For centuries artistic weaving techniques have passed from one
African generation to the next, fueled by the need to store, to
carry and to transport. Utilitarian by design, these grass and palm
fibre baskets are natural works of art with distinctive woven patterns
indigenous to Africa's many tribes and regions. Safari Fusion's new
'Woven & Stitched' collection presents colourful, unique and
functional African basketry at its finest in a more contemporary style.

Adorn Homewares have got lots of new goodies in store
including these amazing marble and mangowood cheeseboards.
They are the perfect accessory for any kitchen and double as
an equally beautiful servingboard for dinner parties. I find kitchens
are one of those rooms in the house, which I find hard to style -
but just throw a couple of these cheeseboards in various sizes/
shape and voila! Instant 'My kitchen belongs in the pages of a
glossy magazine' success! Shop the whole range by clicking here.
Here are my top 5 finds from Adorn Homewares' new range.
Art Hide has unveiled two striking new rug designs. One of
the new rug styles, The Luneta (pictured above), features
their signature laser burn design of an elegant, crescent
pattern imprinted across the rug. It's available in a wide
range of richly coloured natural Argentinian cowhide tones.
Fun, new minimalist Scandi inspired rug, the Dalmata
(pictured above), features black and white Argentinian
cowhide tiled into a Dalmatian style pattern.
Meanwhile Art Hide's popular Classic Collection has been relaunched
with new photography showcasing the versatility and natural aesthetic
of the designs. The creatives behind the brand are sister duo, Kura
Perkins and Bree Hay Hendry. Kura said: "With the release of these
incredible new designs and relaunch of all our popular classic styles, we're
reminded that it's the fusion of Australian design, traditional artisan
construction, modern treatments like laser burning and a premium quality
raw material that creates an extraordinary and unique product."
