I’ve long admired the work of these two Norweigen designers, Torbjørn Anderssen and Espen Voll, and previously featured a collaboration of their work for the Food Work Project on the blog. The two are most known for their designs for brands like Wrong for Hay, Muuto, Magis, Erik Jørgensen, Kvadrat and Foscarini. Now they’ve branched out and formed Nedre Foss and I’m excited to see what they will come up with next.
Last year we started something that we decided to embrace as a family Christmas tradition and I thought that perhaps some of you might be inspired to do something similar.
I had a lot of fun this weekend styling a scene for a Farrow & Ball challenge to celebrate the launch of their new 2015 wallpaper collection, inspired by the British Country. The theme for the challenge was to create a vignette to represent this.
I’m really excited about next year. Now that I’m getting a little more time on my hands with the children and school and my youngest at kindy an extra day, I’ve decided to branch out and take on more work. Am I crazy? Nope, I truly love what I do and quite frankly, it energises me, I feel very lucky.

Last week I attended Happy Kissmas, the viewing of their Christmas collection, and the campaign is all about celebrating with a party. When I saw it I thought, “I want to go to that party!” Imagine…
One of the headline partners of the AMARA Interior Blog awards that I had the pleasure of meeting is GP & J Baker, a company with a longstanding history and known to be one of the worlds innovators of fabric design. They have also been the holder of the Royal Warrant since 1982. If like me and you adore beautiful and timeless fabrics, you could get absolutely lost in their site.
How could I write anything else today, other than how my heart is so full of sadness?
Saturday morning began in New Zealand. We were so happy and full of joy as we celebrated my son’s 6th birthday. He woke up to a room of balloons, opened his presents and then we had our traditional birthday breakfast.
There are a number of really cool precincts around Auckland these days. One of them is City Works Depot, home to an array of eateries, retail space and creative businesses. Many of these businesses have their workspaces overlapping and open to the eyes of the world. It’s a collective of space that I haven’t seen before and when you’re there, you can’t help but soak up the creative vibes and friendly folk.
