Urban Road's new rugs

Urban Road are well known for their original canvas art
prints and cushions, and we're excited to announce that
they're releasing a range of rugs this summer in collaboration
with interior stylist Emma Blomfield of Nest Designs. The
Designer Rug Collection complements the new Summer
2014 Urban Road canvas and cushion collection, which takes
inspiration from the cool, salty ocean breeze of a coastal
Australian summer with a Palm Springs twist.

 Emma Blomfield and Urban Road will be officially launching
the Designer Rug Collection to the trade in Melbourne at Life
Instyle, stand 8085. To register for Life Instyle click here.
Pre-orders from 4 August (click here to find out more).

New AURA towels

AURA have released their first line of bathroom towels!
I'm super excited about these daring and bold designs
available in a range of colours. A great printed bath towel
can really make a bathroom pop, and these AURA ones
will do just the trick. In particular my faves are the duo
design in lime and of course, classic black (you really can't
go wrong with black if you're scared to commit to brightly
coloured towels). Hand towels are priced at $19.95 and bath
towels are a reasonable $49.95. Click here to purchase.


Golden Party Ideas

Next year will be me and my partner's 10 year anniversary
since we first started dating! It's scary to think just how
quickly 10 years goes by - almost in the blink of an eye.
Anyways I'm thinking in lieu of a wedding, we could have a
fabulous 10 year anniversary party next year to celebrate
our love for each other. I've started thinking up themes for it,
and would like to do something similar to my 30th birthday
party from last year (pictured above and below). Here is a
round-up of some entertaining ideas in a gold colour scheme.

Bright Colourful Finds


Spring Nursery by Sharon Montrose

Whilst looking for cute kids' rooms to feature in our next
issue (our special family edition), I came across this cute
nursery designed by Sharon Montrose, talented photographer
behind The Animal Print Shop. I just love the pairing of the
soft duck egg blue colour with the pops of purple, it really
could be for either a boy or a girl! To see more pics of
this nursery along with a product source list, click here.

Discounted Adore books!

I have a box full of books that have damaged dust jackets
(gold cover). I am selling them off cheaper without their
covers for $45 includes free postage within Australia
(normally priced at $55). If anyone wants to buy one
contact me at Please note
there is nothing wrong with the actual book itself - it
just won't come with the gold dust  jacket - but still looks
pretty with its pink hard cover (as pictured above). For
those overseas, yes you can purchase for this discounted
price but you'll need to pay extra for postage - get
in contact with me if you want a price for postage.
