Shuh Lee dances along the line of installation artist/ jewellery designer/ textile designer/ fashion designe/, homeware designer with glee. To me there is always a recognisable softness to her work, in the lines and texture but in amazing balance to the quirky, poppy attitude it all seems to exude via print and colour!! Love it all!
Shuh has just released her new collection of bedlinen with some of that exact attitude.
You can explore the pillow cases and duvets/doona’s (talking to both sides of the Tasman here!) here online as well as her other goodies!
“Doodling and playing with colours is a big part of my art practice.This range contrasts my signature fun and colourful confetti print with a more subtle single-colour print.
The little dots, dashes and strokes resemble the moving thoughts of people in their daily lives. The double sided print says ‘Hello’ by celebrating the positive and colourful moments, and waves ‘Goodbye’ to the negative, embracing the silver lining in
every day life.”

Australian brand; Sanctuary Studio is a new blip on my radar but I instantly recognised it as a beacon to the fun loving, “more is more” kids out there! (By kids I mean “you” – the one with magpie eyes for attitude, boldness and colour in your life!)
Created by mother/daughter duo Anne Cook and Simone Rennard in 2015, they have led with a desire to collaborate with artists to create bedlinen, homeware and accessories that stand out in the fact its not all uniform!
Their new summery offering called ‘Neon Drive’ is a punchy mix of Palm Springs vs Bondi beach with a 90’s vibe spread across lush beach towels, bags, sarongs and more.

Young NZ college and studio mates; Loren Marks and Sarah Carson stepped straight out of their fine arts education into a creative but demanding world of business. On their side was a shared, unwavering point of view and aesthetic, very much focusing on organic lines, tones and inspiration from the softer, shadier corners of nature. Their style has allowed their brand; Penney and Bennett to grow a loyal following of admirers and like minded stockists…with me included.
The rust of that bedlinen combined with the water colour of their silk cushions captivates me!!!

I really hope you are staring down the barrel of some GREAT down time over the next few weeks!
For the first time in years I have decided to take a real proper digital holiday, meaning no posts or social media activity until the 11th of Jan (we’ll see if I can stick to that!)
I’m going to be spending Christmas and New Year in the Southern Lakes followed by the rest of January in Christchurch and surrounds …… getting used to my “soon to be” permanent base!
Yes! Change is a foot!
Once back you can expect the release of my February dates for North Island workshops in Tauranga, Hamilton, Napier and Auckland (South Island coming in March) as well as the announcement of NEW informative classes we’ll be hosting to aid small business. Coming hot on those heels we will introduce some new TEAM.WORK collaborations (which I’m super excited about!) as well as a richer, better direction for the delivery of great down under content for you!
However….you may also be here hoping for some holiday perusing.
Well never fear, there is 8 whole years of introductions sitting here on Studio Home that will still be of interest to you.
