I’ve just had an exciting pre Christmas email from my supplier in Morocco with some great news on the Moroccan leather ottoman poufs. They have decided to lower the price and as a result I’m happy to pass that saving onto my stockists and stores. The minimum wholesale amount will now be fifteen with a price of $95 for each pouf (ottomans are shipped flat in a calico cotton drawstring presentation bag). I’ll be updating my ‘Stock my Store’ profile over the next few weeks with this discounted new price but I wanted to let you be one of the first to know.

Decorating and style trends with semi-precious minerals and agate stone

I love the fact that agate has been surfacing as a trend in home decor, its natural beauty, texture and interest is a lovely addition to almost any style in your home. Agate is a beautiful stone known for its vivid colours and forms when silica-laden groundwater passes through air pockets in cooling lava deep within the earth. It’s a unique mineral that was once thought to protect its owners from danger and even give wonderful dreams.

Since crystals and minerals emit vibrations that affect the flow of energy, they are a perfect choice for decorating. Feng Shui and Vastu are just two approaches to balancing the energies of our indoor environments, while trying to maintain a balance with the natural worlds. An stylish and simple way to incorporate this lovely trend is with agate drink coasters, they make a wonderful housewarming or hostess gift and are an elegant addition to any coffee table.

Available in store in Pink, Blue, Turquoise, Brown, Purple and Natural.

I’m making it ‘Pozible’!

10 Jul

What is ‘Pozible’, I hear you asking?

Pozible is a crowdfunding platform and community-building tool for creative projects and ideas. It was developed to help people raise funds, realise their aspirations and make great things possible.Crowdfunding with Pozible is a way for motivated makers to access funding beyond ‘official’ channels by talking directly to switched-on consumers, fans, peers and like-minded strangers.

How does it work?

Pozible provides the platform for project creators to present their ideas to a connected audience, worldwide. If people love what you’re creating, they can support it by pledging money.In return, project creators offer rewards matched to the level of funding commitment.Pozible can also be a gateway for discovering and supporting inspirational projects and thinkers directly. By becoming actively involved in bringing more attention to bold new ideas, art, products and the talented people who conceive them, project supporters become a vital part of a true creative community.

I’ve created a ‘Pozible’ campaign and I need your help.

BEAUTIFUL BAMBOO BLANKETS FOR BABY!

When it comes to gifts and essentials for those tiny bundles of joy, you need something really special. It has to be beautiful, colourful, unique, natural, durable, washable and above all super soft. And I have an idea for a lovely product that will meet all those requirements! I would love (with your help) to produce a range of organic cotton and natural bamboo bassinete blankets and cot blankets for retail and wholesale. These beautiful blankets will be double sided for warmth and comfort, with snuggly thick bamboo fleece on one side and certified soft organic cotton on the other.

To produce and purchase materials wholesale to make my cuddly, eco friendly and organic blankets I need to raise funds of about $1000 and that’s where you and ‘Pozible’ come in.

A little bit of colour therapy to brighten your day!

19 Apr

After a bit of a break away from my beloved ‘Rock Ribbons’ blog, I think it’s time to get back into it and what better way than with a little bit of colour therapy from Pantone to brighten you day!

Check out these lovely shades below which you will see the influence of in store over the next few months. With the changing season, the greens from spring evolve and develop yellow-toned Linden Green brings a lightness and brightness to the deeper shades of fall. Try pairing both with Mykonos Blue, a bold, meditative blue, for a classic and relaxed fall look.

Exotic Acai adds mystery and richness to the palette, and can be incorporated with the other colors to create a number of powerful fall combinations. Pair the elegant shade of purple with Emerald for a regal disposition, or spirited Samba red for an expressive and dramatic look. Koi, a decorative orange with dazzling and shimmering qualities, is a statement color that serves as a pick-me-up for your wardrobe. Vivacious, an unruly and wildly deep fuchsia, adds an ebullient sensuality to the palette.

Pair Vivacious with anchoring Deep Lichen Green, a naturally lush shade of green, for a dynamic juxtaposition that captures both ends of the seasonal spectrum. Rounding out this season’s cornerstone colors, Turbulence, a dark mercurial gray, and Carafe, a rich, glamorous brown, provide more interesting and sophisticated alternatives to the black basics usually worn in colder months. Both staple neutrals pair gracefully with more expressive colors within the palette, such as Samba, Koi and Vivacious.
