Kate + Abel

When we grow up we wanna be Matt and Kate. They’re the milliners from the I-want-one-of-everything hat label, St Saviours, the shopkeepers of Kate + Abel, and the heart and soul behind the much-needed, pure genius, Fremantle-based Spacemarket project, Many6160. You know those days where you set out to get started on that amazing idea you had bright and early in the morning, decide to take a…

Meet Rhianna May – photographer

So this is Rhianna. She just turned twenty one this year (I know right, shut UP!) and is already inspiring us with her spirit of open-hearted adventure, exceptional eye for photography, and shrewd business mind. What a package! What also amazes me is just how comfortable and self-assured she is in her own skin despite being professedly socially awkward – I don’t believe it for…

Architects and Heroes

Ron and Lyly are the enterprising duo, the face and hands, the yin and yang, behind the hippest coffee spot in Subiaco, Architects and Heroes. The northern end of Rokeby Road has honestly been lacking a bit of pizazz of late, and these guys are turning that tide. With an impressive combined experience of over 16 years in coffee and hospitality, it’s no surprise that…

Meet Anastasia – The Articulate

Someone who I’ve been ogling from afar (and who I was most flattered to find had been counter-ogling us from afar since last year!) is the super-talented, nimble-fingered and ever-humble Anastasia, known also under her creative name, The Articulate. Whenever I find people who follow their creative hearts, I always jump at the chance to speak to them face to face, talk to them…

Meet Claire – Ruck Rover General Store

Ruck Rover General Store has always been one of my places to go to find that perfect vintage-inspired sundress, or a unique present for your friend’s new bub (a bib with a Peter Pan collar – so hot right now!), or a great dude-gift amongst their ever-changing supply of funky t-shirts and socks. They moved from their premises in Mount Lawley two years ago…

Meet Jelena – Mr Sparrow

A few weeks ago we went and paid a visit to Jelena, the owner and keen-eyed curator of Mr Sparrow. Mr Sparrow is conveniently located in Subiaco and is one of my absolute go-to stores for many, many reasons. It simply, practically and beautifully always has the answer to my present-buying woes! Overflowing with irresistible gift ideas for the home and garden, I never leave…

Kyle Hughes-Odgers interview + exhibition review

Last Friday Jinn attended the opening of Kyle Hughes-Odgers’ exhibition “A Thousand Lights From A Hundred Skies” (so jealous!). He got the chance to have a chat with the talented artist himself about his work and inspiration behind it. I wish with all my heart I could have been there too! See what he wrote about the evening below.  “I love your stuff man.”…

Eleta (aka The Bunny!)

Meet Eleta – the owner and creator of The Bunny, purveyor of fine handmade goodies that have a hint of quirkiness and individuality, achieved by using a clever mix of vintage and new elements. This online store (and now real-life summer market stall) was established in early 2011 and has already started making a ripple amongst Perth’s fashion and accessory lovers. I came across…
