Pickled Whimsy Kokedama Workshop

Pickled Whimsy Kokedama Workshop7

Rewind about two years and I was taking photos of an Auckland interior store when I saw that they sold Kokedamas. I was so excited because I fell in love with this Japanese plant art way back here, yet nobody in New Zealand seemed to be doing it. It seems that Coraleigh, from Pickled Whimsy caught on and was making them in her Tauranga studio, about two and half hours south of Auckland.

It’s Monday and I have so much to do and organise this week. So what do I do this morning? I browse the Gubi catalogue and dream. I guess some might call it procrastination. I like to call it research.

The art of Tszujing a home

The art of Tszujing a home,

My friend Tash’s home is always impeccable. It’s not one of those show homes where you’re too scared to touch anything, or even sit down, it’s got a laid back easy feel, beautifully decorated, but it’s always in order.

Citta Design Winter | Beautiful Utitlity 3

A divided city. On one side, the prosperous, modern West Berlin, on the other, East Berlin, a Soviet-administered zone of grit, grey and graffiti. And throughout, the 1970’s zeitgeist of artistic freedom, passionate idealism and rebellious spirit.

Winner interview interior blog awards

I hope that you all had a fab weekend!  Since the official work year began for me, I’ve been working on a couple of exciting projects. I’ll reveal it all in due time, but it’s meant that I’ve had to work a little extra and on the weekend. I did manage to squeeze in some fun though (while my house falls apart around me and no washing done!), catching up with friends, having a lovely valentines brunch and a visit to one of the participating gardens in the Heroic Garden Festival. I’ve long admired this beautiful historic home in Grey Lynn but had no idea what an incredible garden it had behind the gates. It includes every flower, fruit and vegetable you could image, a huge chook enclosure and a natural pool where the owners swim amongst fish and water lilies. All of this, in the heart of inner city Grey Lynn! Remind me to put this fantastic event in my calendar for next year.
