Maeker Studio

More and more I’ve been learning the importance of living better and living bigger. And by bigger and better I don’t mean more luxurious or more expensive or more exclusive. I mean taking your life and your intentions in your own two hands and resolving to live, for want of a better term, as a good human being. Not necessarily always taking the easy road…

Go wild

A little while ago, a good friend of mine who I’ve only met in recent years came over for dinner. She looked for some time at one of our wedding photos on the wall and finally said, “Who’s that?”. I hadn’t quite realised just how much we’ve changed over the last (almost) six years! Our faces haven’t changed that dramatically, but we’re certainly more sure of…

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…

#perthinstameet

The crazy (in a good way), ever-buzzing, unstoppable mind of Stacey Clark never fails to amaze and astound me. She is a force to be reckoned with, and she’s comin’ to get you, big ol’ world. Pairing up with the equally exceptional Bec Tougas, a fellow stylist, these two concocted and masterminded Perth’s first ever official Instameet. If you’ve currently got your finger anywhere near Perth’s…

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…

The Hidden Sound

Oh what a night. A ticket to an unknown destination, a bunch of clues, an abandoned warehouse. A deer with a flower wreath around its neck. And then Kate Miller Heidke. The Hidden Sound / jarradseng@gmail.com / Instagram @thehiddensound

An afternoon with Michelle Lau

Blogging is a truly rewarding creative experience that often draws on both imagery and text to draw in readers, and can reach and be read by people all over the world. It is unique in that it is an outlet for personal expression and blog topics can range from food to fashion to politics to religion to deeply personal stories, there are few limits. As you…

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…

Cranmore Home Winter Workshop

There are very few things that will get me out of bed willingly before sunrise. There are even less things that will convince me to leave the warm embrace of my friendly doona on a 2 degree morning. And yet, on a morning that fulfilled both of those usually dealbreaking criteria, I spritely hopped out of bed and out the door with Jinn on one…

Handlettering with The Articulate

This weekend concluded the completely sold out hand lettering workshops run by Anastasia from The Articulate! The past three workshops have been the inaugural events for an initiative formed by Stacey Clark aptly named The Creatives. During these afternoons of fun, Anastasia shared with us what inspires her and a few tricks of the trade along with the technicalities of lettering to get us started. It…
