sequins & sequence

Kat Macleod is seriously talented. I am a huge fan of her work, and I was very excited to get my hands on a copy of her beautiful new limited edition book, Sequins & Sequence.

The pages are illustrated with images of a girl moving dreamily through lands under the sea and on earth, where she finds gorgeous brightly coloured animals adorned with sequins and beads. 

There is absolutely no way that my photos can capture the beauty of the pages that are inside the book, so I suggest getting one to hold lovingly in your own hands. At $20 a pop though, you will need to be quick to pick up one of the 1000 copies that are available (Kat is easily one of the most loved Melbourne designers)!

book love – jazz age metallics

I adore all of Coralie Bickford-Smith’s beautifully designed books. She has recently designed some beautiful metallic art-deco inspired covers for a special F. Scott Fitzgerald collection of books. As soon as the designs hit the internet a couple of months ago I was smiling, and now that they are instore and  I am almost certain that I am being given them for Christmas I am hugging myself in delight! Do you have any books on your Christmas wishlist?

a kikki.K christmas

I was trying to hold off on Christmas related posts until at least the last week of November but I popped into kikki.K last night and stocked up on lots of fun things that I wanted to share now. kikki.K stores are beautiful stationery havens filled with touches of Scandinavia and lots of things to make the day at work/school/home pass a little easier. Here are just a few of my favourite pieces newly released for the Christmas season, for more inspiration, kikki.K has a Christmas catalogue available online…

Gift tags, porcelain decorations, cards, wrapping paper, twine and ribbon shown – perfect for beautiful wrapping of presents. They also have some lovely Christmas stamps and lots of beautiful notebooks and diaries to give.

P.S. kikki.K is holding a “secret santa sale” for people on their email list. They checked the database in store when I was purchasing, but you might be able to add “secretsanta” to the comment box when purchasing online to secure the 20% discount (only valid for a few more days, hence my excitement to tell you about all of this goodness now!)
