Our friends, Sunni and James tied the knot. The wedding was made truly special with beautiful hand made touches, vintage croquet sets and my favourite flowers, peonies! This lush fairytale was set on their family farm in regional NSW, amongst vast fields making it seem like we had stumbled across an oasis. A stunning day full of love, fun and friends!

Our wedding is featured in the gorgeous mag “Your Day” – Bride To Be’s annual magazine. Thanks again to our ace photographer, Adrian Tuazon. Don’t mind the idea of styling a wedding – anyone need help?! There is more wedding goodness here.

I was very lucky to have Stephen Banham, a local typographic genius, as one of my lecturer at uni. He has recently published a book, entitled Characters, focusing on typographic stories in Melbourne. At the launch, Stephen spoke about how now more than ever, typography has gone mainstream, where beautiful lettering no longer just adorns the homes of designers. I can’t wait to read about Melbourne’s signage secrets!

I am a big fan of Jeff Koons and most things that glitter. The jumbo hair clip just seem to be a combination of both – I wonder if they are heavy?

I discovered Gregory Crewdson on ABC’s Art Nation and I was blown away. He is an American photographer who is best known for elaborately staged, surreal scenes of homes and neighbourhoods. They are all quite disconcerting aren’t they!?

Today’s sunny weather reminded me of my trip to Sydney a few months back. The highlights included the Annie Leibovitz exhibition and the Greenhouse by Joost. Nestled in between the Opera House and the Harbour Bridge, the Greenhouse occupied some of the most prestigious real estate in Sydney – how did he get a permit?! But once you entered you understood that this was no ordinary restaurant. With a focus on the recycling and sustainability, the floor was once a conveyor belt and the uniforms were modified op shop finds. Every day, flour was milled, oats rolled, butter churned and yoghurt cultured – all the food was made on site from raw ingredients. At the end of the day all waste was composted or fed to earthworms and in turn their rooftop herb garden. Bees were even kept on the roof. What a concept! Joost’s pop up also featured work by David Bromley.
