Conversations + Colour: Holly Hipwell (AKA The Flower Drum)

If you've never heard of Holly Hipwell - where the bloody hell have you been? She's one of Sydney's (and Instagram's) most eminent florists - creating mystical, almost mythical creations for events, parties and everything in between. A hilarious funster with a magnetic personality, she's the epitome of creative visionary - and is always making magic. The self-taught flower flinger with an innate style for the wonderful, lives on the Northern Beaches, and invited us over for afternoon tea (who are we kidding, we invited ourselves over).  Holly Hipwell - tell us what we should know about you: My name is Holly Hipwell and I am a flower addict. I have my furry little sidekick Ruffy (a Kelpie x Collie x human) who...

Earthy neutrals - for you and your home: 4 favourites

Little Tienda is known for colour and print - however we've found ourselves increasingly drawn to earthy neutrals.  It could be a reflection of the state of the world, it could be our yearning for connection to earth, or maybe neutrals are just the perfect foil to our collection of punchy prints. No matter what - we're really loving neutrals. Here are four favourites!  For a tranquil home: Minimalist and timeless the Canyon quilt from the new Little Tienda Home collection features colour blocking for the win.  The two-tone delight (dusty blush reversing to a slightly paler ochre pink) evokes the warmth of the Australian landscape. A modern twist on the traditional kantha (meaning: patched cloth), each quilt is lovingly...

Conversations + Colour: Victoria Aguirre

Based in the idyllic setting of Byron Bay, photographer Victoria Aguirre has worked hard to create a business that’s founded on supporting Argentinian artisans and keeping their handcrafts alive. Founded on art, heritage and culture, Pampa conjures travel stories and tradition with a modern twist via a collection of fair-trade homewares with heart. As co-founder, Victoria has curated an earthy, enduring and tactile edit with inherent global appeal - having worked with top hoteliers in far-flung places.  With an inherent love for horses and llamas (and donkeys!), her photography brings a sense of awe and warmth. Did we mention the llamas? We talk with Victoria about travel, entrepreneurship, work-life balance, and of course - her favourite toasted sandwich set up...

Spring baking! Julia Busuttil Nishimura's simple butter cake with raspberries - a recipe

This week we chatted with the delicious Julia Busuttil Nishimura. If you missed the interview, you can find it over on Stories.  It’s Sunday, a traditionally slow day to potter - and these days, even moreso if you’re in lockdown. We’re all looking for comfort and ways to nurture ourselves and our families. Shared from Julia’s latest book ‘A Year of Simple Family Food’, we see following this recipe as almost meditative, with the results being nourishing for both body and soul (there’s nothing better than a buttery cake fresh from the oven) - not to mention the warmth and aromas to fill your home. Excitingly - you will most likely have most ingredients in your repertoire, so you can...

Conversations + Colour: Julia Ostro

This week, we travel to Melbourne (and a few weeks back in time, between lockdowns), and we chat with cook, author and Italian teacher - the delectable Julia Busuttil Nishimura.  Back in 2017, Julia splashed onto the scene with her first cookbook ‘Ostro’.  celebration of her Maltese upbringing and time living in Italy, rather than your regular cookbook, this was a foray into the sensual art of slowing down, stressing less and getting hands on creating delicious meals with simple ingredients (if you haven’t made her greens pie - who even are you?!).  Welcome into the delicious world of Julia.  Julia Busuttil Nishimura, tell us who you are and what you want us to know about you: I am a...
