Meredith Marsone

Everpresent 2016 oil on board 400x300mm by Meredith Marsone // Lyttelton, New Zealand // as featured on Studio Home

I’ve been stalking Meredith Marsone on Instagram for some months now. The extent of my stalking has meant liking EVERY single post without fail and obsessively clicking through to her website at least once at week to day dream over which piece I would “pick”.
To my delight (non-stalker delight I promise!) Meredith creates her internationally exhibited paintings from a studio in Lyttelton, just through the tunnel from my soon-to-be home of Christchurch.

I really feel that her work needs little explanation in that its beauty, subject matter and melting dreamscapes communicate more emotion and sense of moment the most photographs!

Please enjoy to your hearts content AND explore her world online.

IN BED

IN BED linen bedding // Australia - available online // Photo by Terence Chin // as featured on Studio Home

My love for “the bed” is strong – perhaps a little too strong for a girl my age who should be rearing to go and keeping a strict work schedule! …Gulp.
Lucky/unlucky for me and my fellow slumber lovers out there, Pip Vassett of IN BED has continued to build on her sumptuous collection of linen bedding, bed time wear, and bed time accessories (think special ceramic mugs, jams for Sunday toast, tea blends, books and sheepskins to land on when you finally have to leave!)
As a regular user of IN BED linen I can personally vouch for the magic of sleeping under linen and the potentially false sense of grandeur it can deliver. Take it where you can get it I say!

Particulary loving the stripey duvet set, moss sheeting AND will be planning to wear this during day time hours!

PS – one parting tip! Anyone after the same natural, textural vibe for their living are should definitely consider buying Euro cushions and popping them in these pillowcases!

I have had a loonnnnggg term love of all and any work produced by Kareena Zerefos. Her whimsical water colours and soft style are highly recognisable which has led her to successfully produce work for a world wide audience.
Most recently, in an effort to highlight the work of local artists, makers and collectors of Freshwater, Sydney, she has joined forces with metal-smith and jeweller, Toby Eagle; and Bjorn and Sandra Brunger of Maker & Collector to launch the Lawrence St Makers. 
The space showcases some terrific work and following their December launch they are very happy to present their first group exhibition opening tonight!

Below are a few examples of the work to be shared from a super impressive collection of artists and photographers – most DEFINITELY worth a visit! A unique chance to view beautiful, local, handcrafted work in a community setting.
Support local. Shop small.

The Vallentine Project

Hand painted bed linen by The Vallentine Project // Melbourne -available online // Photo: Bobby and Tide, Styling: Poppy Lane // as featured on Studio Home

Once you draw breath and recover from the beauty of that sleeping space above, I’d love to introduce you to a particularly refreshing concept in bed linen.
Melbourne based designer/maker; Bianca Vallentine has many collaborative ideas simmering away under her banner; The Vallentine Project, but its her hand painted and embroidered bed linen that has my heart beating!

The 100% linen pillow cases and duvets are individually decorated by hand, the result being a luxurious but softly organic, modern example of handmade homeware.
Explore the collection here if you feel like a treat!  Also able to be touched in real time at the Pop & Scott Showroom.
