ELSON COLLECTION 02

I'm really loving what Elson are doing with bedding of late,
their latest range 'Collection 02' has a distinct summer
feel and they've also thrown some sophisticated cushions
into the mix. Founder Broc Munro explains: "ELSON
Collection 02’ is Safari Luxe meets Mediterranean Escape
with the same unisex feel and slightly masculine edge
that saw the first season become such a success.”

I'm lusting after the plain dyed ’Seafoam Straights' design
(pictured directly above) which offers a fresh, crisp look to
any room - team it with lots of white and hey presto, you've
got a cool, crisp bedroom for this summer. All of the designs
are available as sheets, pillows and duvets covers so you can
mix and match to create your own unique look. Click here to shop.

INCY OPENS SYDNEY STORE

Sydneysiders will be more than an incy bit excited to hear
that incy interiors is coming to town, featuring its full selection
of furniture as well as a carefully-curated selection of home
accessories from Australia’s most-loved designers. Bathurst based
since its inception in 2011, incy interiors is expanding to the
big city and officially taking up residence in Chatswood Chase.

incy interiors founder and director Kristy Withers said its
Sydney store opening was the next logical step for expanding
the business.“We have received great support from our customers
since we opened our Bathurst store in 2012, but were constantly
asked if we had a Sydney presence,” Kristy said. “Many customers
still prefer to buy from a traditional bricks-and-mortar store.
They like to ‘touch and feel’ a product before they buy it, especially
if it’s for their child." The new incy interiors store is located
at Shop 219, Chatswood Chase Shopping Centre in Sydney.

INTRODUCING PAPER CARTEL

Sleeping Dog by Georgie Crawford

Today I'd like to introduce you to Paper Cartel, a new
online art gallery created to showcase emerging and
established Australian artists' works and sell limited
edition archival prints. Having worked as an interior
designer for 15  years, Cris Bucknall has launched
Paper Cartel to solve one of her major problems as a
designer - finding unique and inspiring art for clients.

Gravity Drips by Megan Skehan

"There are a huge number of people that want meaningful,
great art, but don't want a poster and can't afford an
original or are intimidated by galleries," explains Cris.
"Paper Cartel aims to fill this gap in the market - to create
a gallery with quality and accessible art for both interior
designers and novices alike." Prints are priced from $98
and there are framing options for an additional cost.

Lint & Honey's textiles

Last week I was introduced to Lint & Honey, a boutique
textile label based in Canada created by Andrea Shum. With
a background in fashion communication and having worked
in the advertising industry as a creative for the past 10 years,
Andrea decided to start her own label. Each design starts with
a hand-drawn sketch: Andrea believes it's really important to
preserve that authentic touch. Click here to shop the range.

A dash of pink

There's no denying that soft dusty pinks and peach hues
are very 'in' at the moment. To add a little pink in to your
interior is pretty easy, and doesn't need to be expensive
either. Some soft pink flowers like these gorgeous peonies
instantly gives my bedside table a fresh and chic feel. Pale
pink pillowcases or cushions are also ideal for injecting some
softness into the bedroom (these ones pictured below feature
in my bedroom and are from Linen House). I've also done a
product round-up of my favourite pink products at the moment.

Adore Annual Sneak Peek!

Oh yes, here it is - the highly anticipated Adore Annual
edition magazine! I received my advance copies last
week and couldn't wait to have it photographed to show
you all. The Annual edition showcases the best homes
from 2014's online editions plus a couple of new homes
and spaces for good measure. The Annual will be available
from newsagents and select retailers across Australia along
with our online shop. If you'd like to pre-order a copy you
can do so by clicking here. Below is a sneak peek look!

THE COVER
Our front cover home belonging to Katy Thomas from Eye
Spy Milk Bar blog
, is one of my personal faves from this issue -
think loads of pastels and pops of bright colour everywhere.
The back cover features 'Rainbow Confetti' - a print designed by
Kimmy Hogan. I know a lot of our readers love to display books
and magazines on their coffee table so I ensured there were
two options for all of the decorators out there! Just flip your
magazine upside down to create a whole new look and feel!

PRE-ORDERS
If you pre-ordered a copy through Pozible, your copy should
arrive by late November. If you'd like to grab yours from a
newsagency or shop (will announce stockist list on the blog
in late Nov) they'll be in stores from Dec 1, priced at $12.95.
Those who pledged for invitations through Pozible can expect
their invitation within the next couple of days in the mail!

LAUNCH PARTY
For those wishing to attend our launch party we'll be hosting
it at Adorn in West End, Brisbane (324 Montague St), on Nov
27 starting at 5.30pm and wrapping up at about 8pm. Join us
for drinks and nibbles and a chance to do some shopping too!
If you haven't visited Adorn in West End before, they not only sell
fashionable accessories and jewellery, but also a huge range of
homewares and gifts. There will be copies of the magazine
available to purchase on the evening and will be at a special
price of $10 (cash only please). Hope to see some of you there!
