From Turkey, With Love

Today we're delving into the background of our pride, our joy, our authentic and one-off Turkish pots... Often referred to as Ödemiş pots, jars and urns after the Western Anatolian region of Turkey from which they first came, these vessels were originally used to store honey, wine, water, olives and olive oil over the ‘non-productive’ seasons. Traditionally the pots have a conical shape – a narrow base with a wider middle, tapering again to a narrow opening at the top. Their distinctive shape enabled the pots to be buried in the ground as a natural way to keep them cool and preserve the items inside. Which we think is pretty cool indeed. The pots were of such value historically that...

Plant Styling for the Home

It's amazing what a little greenery can do to a space. We like to think they breathe life into a room and transform a dull space into a type of fresh sanctuary.

The whole idea of bringing nature inside is what we’re...

Why We Use 100% Soy Wax In Our Candles

All our candles are made here in Australia by us, using only 100% Soy Wax. The benefits of Soy Wax far exceed any other candle compound option, however, for those who are unsure about soy wax candles, we are here to make things a little clearer.  Firstly Soy Wax is a vegetable wax derived from soy bean oil while other candle compounds are made from paraffin wax, which is derived from petroleum, a refined gasoline byproduct (the same stuff you’re fueling your car with!!!) This nonrenewable source contains harmful carcinogenic substances and when lit produces a ‘carbon like soot’ that fills the air we breath and blacken the walls and furniture of your home aghhhhh. While Soybeans are a natural...

A local Gem...

Paddock and Vine in Mona Vale If you're heading up to the Northern beaches, Paddock and Vine Restaurant and Wine bar in Mona Vale is an absolute must. Paddock and Vine opened in 2017 and specialises in rustic wholesome food, and while the food is nothing short of outstanding, it is the restaurant fit-out, design and ambiance that caught our attention. They have taken a very rustic and industrial approach to the design scheme, teaming beautiful copper light fit-outs with timber panels and textured walls. With a collection of beautifully designed seating furniture and handmade ceramics to match.    We for one can definitely vouch for the food, we have lost count of the amount of times we have dined...
