Great Gatsby!

Like everyone else, The Great Gatsby is on my nightstand being re-read in anticipation of Baz’s release. I am sooooo excited to be off to a Great Gatsby opening event tonight with a super-great BFF. In honour of our gettin’ all dolled-up and nineteen-twentifying ourselves, I thought I’d do a quick post on some of the Gatsby-inspired Art-deco goodness around the traps at the moment.

Really, who wouldn’t love this opulent, polished, brilliantly deco bedroom. OTT? No way!

I know I have gushed endlessly over Catherine Martin’s work with Mokum, Porter’s Paints and Designer Rugs, but how can I not start with the gorgeous interior decor from the Production and Costume Designer of the movie (not to mention director’s wife).



In honour of Australia Day coming up on the 26th January, I thought I’d round up a few of my favourite Australiana products out in the design world at the moment, as well as those classic pieces that gently state where they still call home.

Although I am sure I have shown you this before, I still abso love the Corro Bowl from Sydney-based design collective, Design By Them. Distinctly Australian, it is formed from polished corrugated stainless steel, synonymous with both rural and contemporary Australian architectural vernacular. There aren’t many of their products that I don’t lust after.
