Concrete + Stripes


Photographic Art by Ella Deague

Australian lifestyle, travel and interiors photographer Ella
has released a stunning range of photographic
prints highlighting her curiosity of the natural landscape.
The colours are simply breathtaking and highlight the unique
diversity in the landscapes found in Australia. I can totally see
these prints in a contemporary/coastal home. Priced from $1400
(framed) and available through Ella's online store (click here).
Below are my faves from her 'Earth, Sky & Water' collection.


Greg Natale's new cushions

I'm literally counting the days til Greg Natale's new cushion
collection with One Duck Two is released (in September people -
mark it in your diaries!). In all honesty, do I need a new cushion?
No, not really. But do I WANT these new cushions - oh yes, yes I
do! It's no secret that I'm a huge fan of Greg Natale's gorgeous
interior designs, so when I found out he was releasing a range of
cushions, I literally died (and floated on in to cushion heaven). Now
all I have to do is narrow it down to which designs I'm wanting.
I'm thinking either the black and white designs or that lovely
vibrant kelly green for the bedroom. And those blue embroidered
cushions for the living room get my tick of approval. Time to flex
those credit card muscles. You'll find them in leading homewares
& department stores. I'll be keeping my beady eyes open for these.

Adore's Perth Shopping Tour!

Our ever popular shopping tours are back! And first stop
is the city of Perth. Our shopping tour takes in some of
Perth's best homewares/furniture boutique stores including
the recently opened West Elm (pictured above) and Pottery
Barn. Other stores on the tour include Empire, Corner Store,
Angove Street Collective, Olive & Coco and many more. So
what do you get on the tour and why should you book in? Well
first off, a private charter bus drives us from store to store,
making it the easiest way to shop. Many of the stores will also
be offering exclusive discounts to our guests, and some will
even be putting on drinks/nibbles for us. It's a great way to
shop and to be treated like a VIP customer. We also stop for
lunch and a drink at a beautiful cafe – which is a great chance
to rest those legs, before we hit even more stores in the afternoon!
Oh and did we mention our goodies bags? Every guest receives
one, and trust me, they're worth coming on the tour for!

Luxe Addition

Lisa will be offering Room Refresh Packages as part of the tour
for $299 (this price also includes a ticket on the tour, and goodies
bag to the value of $50+). This is a special rate exclusive to our
tour guests. Lisa has impeccable style and has had her home
featured in both our magazine and Adore book (see pictures above).
The Room Refresh Package was designed for those guests on our
tour who needed some professional decorating advice as well as ideas
on what items they should be looking to purchase to help decorate
their space. Lisa will be on hand on the day of the tour to help consult
with you, and help you to choose items for your space. This package
is for 1 room in the home only. If you would like more info about this

Shayna Blaze for Urban Road

You undoubtedly have heard of Shayna Blaze before (well at
least my Australian readers have), this award winning interior
designer, and presenter/judge on Channel 9's series The Block
has teamed up with Urban Road for a collection of beautiful art
that will have you smitten! The collections embrace a diverse
palette from whimsical feminine to moody and mysterious, offering
colours and designs to complement the look and feel of any space.

Shayna Blaze on the collaboration: "I have always loved and
lived by the quote, "It's a beautiful thing when a career and
passion come together," and I felt this instantly when meeting
Suzie and the team at Urban Road. With a love of fine arts and
of course interiors I have found it frustrating I can't produce
more artwork of my own due to time constraints. Being able to
find someone like Suzie who immediately got where I was coming
from with design and colour direction, mixed with her talent as an
artist it was the perfect meeting of two artistic minds. I am
incredibly excited about this collaboration and each piece brings a
big smile to my face. I feel the energy and passion from each canvas
that I feel will translate to a beautiful addition to any interior."
