My 7-year-old daughter has been begging for her very own study desk where she can work on her homework in peace (when the kitchen counter becomes too hectic), keep her stationery organised, and work on art and craft. I've been sanding, painting, and assembling up a storm to create a movable space for her that will work for many years to come. (remember my mood board here?)
After my post on our weekend getaway to Avoca Beach I have had so many inquiries about the gorgeous Sombrilla shade tent. Lucky for us, the lovely folks at Hollie & Harrie have offered a $20 discount to Bondville readers on all Sombrilla sales in the next 7 days. Simply enter the code Bondville at checkout in the online store. Code expires 20th November, 2014. The shade tent would make a fantastic Christmas gift - get in quick!
It's gift-giving time! Looking for some ideas? Let's spend our dollars on local designers and Australian style this Christmas. Seven of my favourite bloggers have put together a wishlist of Australian-designed products that we are loving at the moment. Here is mine! Keep reading below for links to all the other blogger wishlists which I know you will be inspired by.
Today fabulous Australian furniture designers and homewares retailers Incy Interiors opened the doors of their first Sydney store at Chatswood Chase. I popped over to meet the gals in person and take some pics to give you a store tour - it's all amazing!
Great news for all non-Sydney-siders - the amazing design retailer Koskela has opened their online store so now you can purchase their beautifully-created Australian-made and social enterprise goodies and have them shipped all over the country and world. Brilliant!
Choose from a whole range of art, design, homewares, kids' products and garden products that you can feel confident are ethically-sourced. Happy shopping!
Bondville partner Four In The Bed makes the sweetest pyjamas for boys and girls in sizes 2 to 16. Made from softest quality pure cotton, the Summer collection of junior sleepwear features pretty pastels and in-demand red, white and blue.
Bondville partner Incy Interiors specialises in beautiful designer furniture for babies and children. Incy has altered the children's bedroom furniture landscape in Australia with their collections, including the popular hospital-style metal bed frames in bright colours and metallics, the spindle range - customisable in a huge range of colours, the collaboration with bedding darlings Kip & Co, and the stunning modern four-poster range designed in collaboration with Megan Morton.
We are so lucky that Incy Interiors is expanding their retail outlets from their current base in Bathurst to a brand new store at Chatswood Chase in Sydney, opening Friday 7th November 2014! Head to the store to see in person the range of children's furniture, toys, accessories, and bedding from partners. Lots of fabulous Australian brands that work so well together.
Add colour and fun to your Christmas decor this year with ethical felt Christmas decorations from Bondville sponsor Happy As Larry Designs. Designed in Australia and made by artisans in Nepal, these pieces are beautiful and made with love.
Strawberry season is upon us in Australia, and with punnets at their very freshest and cheapest, strawberries make a fabulous party theme. When little Izzy turned two, her Mum Zoe put together the cutest strawberry party, beautifully photographed by Milk & Honey Photography in a park in Sydney's inner west. We are lucky to have Zoe share her tips and tricks with us on how to put together a strawberry party with lots of great savoury food ideas too.
