massucco warner miller

Dear future self...

When you are living in LA, San Fran or Seattle, look up Massucco Warner Miller, and have them work some magic on your house. Whether it's a bold pattern, a fab headboard or the right mix of glam / modern / traditional, I'm 99.99% certain one of the three designers will get it right.

Dear Gutenberg,

Does it make you happy to see that even in the digital age there's still clever talented people like the folks at Bespoke Letterpress using the press to make beautiful invitations, prints and cards? I discovered the very talented duo Alischa and Hayden at the recent Young Blood markets at the Powerhouse in Sydney, where I was assured that more prints and their range of cards would be on sale over the net soon, but otherwise to catch them at the next Finders Keepers markets at CarriageWorks!

decorating with true blood

Dear Kyouei Design,

Are you into True Blood? In love with Eric (aka Alexander Skaarsgard) and the hot new werewolf that both have seriously ridiculous tension with Sookie? Me too. I'm guessing you're not actually.. well at least not as into vamps and werewolves as I am.. Also guessing that these 'bloody' cool lights and bookmark came at a serendipitous time?

Dear 'mixmaster' cohler,

There's a lot of people doing the traditional meets modern infusion these days, few do it well in my very unimportant opinion. You are an exception.

sally wheat

Dear grown up grunge lovers,

So I definitely got into the torn jeans and daggy shirts, Nirvana blaring on the stereo, but at some point you grow out of the grunge right? Sally Wheat for me is grown-up-high-class-grunge... about now I imagine you're saying what the..? Hear me out, Sally takes an otherwise grungy colour palette (blacks, greys, browns), uses it sparingly with a healthy dose of white, adds an assortment of edgy pieces and voila grown up grunge. Maybe I'm stretching it... I still love her work.. so there.

jw. xoxo.
