Printed Annual - 20% Funds Raised

Just a quick update to let you know how we're going
with raising funds for the printed annual edition of
Adore. We reached the 20% mark this week and are
well on the way to reaching our target goal of $12,000.

So what's in the annual edition you ask? Well it will
contain our favourite homes from 2014's online editions
plus some new homes and rooms to keep you excited.
There will be product pages with the biggest trends
from this year and styled product pages to keep you
in the loop with the hottest homewares around.

Luxe Addition's coffee table

Lisa Marinovich from Luxe Addition recently blogged about
the Adore book and took the most gorgeous pictures of her
coffee table starring my little Adore book. Lisa is an incredibly
talented interior decorator and her own home actually
features in the book (as per the above pic). To see more

Jonathan Adler in Australia!

I'm kind of obsessed with Jonathan Adler so when I found
out that his furniture and homewares range were being
stocked right here in Australia through Coco Republic I
got rather excited! To say I'm obsessed though, would be
an understatement. And now I find myself dreaming about
having a living room filled with gorgeous things from JA.
They're not stocking everything, but it's certainly a good
start and there's a lot of key pieces that I know will be popular.

For the time being Jonathan Adler products will be
available in Sydney and Melbourne Coco Republic
stores but they will be introducing to Brisbane soon!
Check out the range by clicking here.

A few items on my lust-lust:
1 CUSHION  / 2 CERAMIC SCULPTURE  /  3 SOFA
4 BENCH SEAT  /  5 SIDE TABLE  /  6 CHAIR

DESIGNER EDGE

It's not often that you'll find an online store offering design
help and expertise, but that's exactly what you'll get when you
shop with La Mia Bella Casa. Sarah Arbiter, the mastermind
behind the online shop says it's all about giving customers
the "design experience" without going out and enlisting an
interior designer. If you can't find what you're looking for you
can even have cushions, bedcovers, runners and even
bedheads, custom made and designed to suit your home.

Sarah is always on hand (either via email or phone) to
help with colour/fabric selections and can even send out
fabric swatches if you're still undecided. You'll find a range
of products including cushions, Turkish bed and bath linens,
Merino wool throws and even French table linens. Shop the
range of products at La Mia Bella Casa by clicking here.

So I have some pretty exciting news, and chances are
that if you follow us on facebook or instagram you would
already know that we are planning to print a special annual
edtion of Adore! This printed edition will be available in
newsagents and stores across Australia and feature our fave
homes from 2014 online issues, plus some extra content.

If we raise enough funds the annual magazine will
be available in early December. But to make this dream
a reality we need your support. We're raising funds for
this project through Pozible, a crowdfunding website (same
one that we used to raise the funds for the Adore book), and
need to reach our target goal of $12,000 in order to go to
print. To pledge your support please pre-order a copy by
clicking here.
You'll be billed once we reach our target.
Thanks so much in advance for your support!

Nordic Style bedroom

In the latest issue we featured Kate Sparks' home from
Little Dwellings. Her master bedroom is pretty special and
I thought I'd share a few more pictures of it with you all.
I'm really getting into the Scandinavian-look at the moment.
I've always had a thing for bold black and white interiors
hence why this bedroom is so appealing to me. The addition
of the timber feature wall softens the harshness of the black
and white and really gives the space a warmth to it. To see
more of Kate's home read our latest issue by clicking here.

Father's Day Gift Guide

If your dad's anything like mine, he's hard to buy presents for!
And with Father's Day right around the corner (it's September
7 by the way), I thought I'd put together a gift guide to some
quirky, yet practical gifts for Dad (I know my Dad would love
some of these!). I've chosen items from Navy Crockett – they're
an all-girl team, curating the best gifts on their online store
to help other women find great gifts for the men in their life.

1 ROBOT ALARM CLOCK  /  2 POCKET KNIFE  /  3 UNDERWEAR
4 LAUNDRY BAG  /  5 MATCH HOLDER  /  6 SPEAKER  /  7 IPAD CASE

If you're the type of person who has a lot on their plate,
rushes around for gifts at the last minute and then kicks
yourself when you get a gift that is just 'so-so', you'll love
Navy Crockett's early bird fire sale. Between today and Friday
this week, they're having a sale to help you get organised
and come away feeling like a kick-ass gift-giver! Each day of
the week they will have a new, heavily discounted product
with limited stock. The first peeps to hear about it are their
VIP subscribers - not a subscriber? It's not too late - click
here to subscribe
and receive news of their sale offers first.
