Conversations + Colour: Anthia Koullouros of Apotheca by Anthia

Recently we were lucky enough to collaborate with Anthia Koullouros of Apotheca by Anthia on a very special project. Drawing inspiration on the newly launched 'Meadow' collection - we charged Anthia with creating a tisane that was evocative of the sensation of walking into a flower meadow. The result? A relaxing tisane that's just as beautiful to drink as it is on the eye.  Naturopath, herbalist, author and natural health educator, Anthia's days are packed full of goodness - with a focus on healing. Based in Sydney's Paddington, she invited us into her clinic to chat over a herbal tisane about where she's been and what's next.  Anthia Koullouros - tell us about yourself: I’m a naturopath and founder and creator of...

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...

Conversations + Colour: Sophie Hansen

There’s so much to be cheerful about when you speak with Sophie Hansen. The former city girl who turned to country life - Sophie carves out the very image of wholesome goodness that most of us can only dream about. Living on a farm with her husband and two children, Sophie continues to weave together a community around recipes, the emotion and nostalgia of eating good, simple food - all while listening to House of Pain’s Jump Around while hurtling into the air on the trampoline.  We dreamily imagined hanging over the garden gate, catching up with Sophie about how she came to live in rural Australia, the wine bar where she once worked, and of course - her forthcoming book...

Brisbane photographer Mindi Cooke - a moment in lockdown

Brisbane-based food, interiors and lifestyle photographer Mindi Cooke endured a number of snap lockdowns over the last 18 months with her young family. During this time she became a ruthless UNO player, dabbled in margarita mixes and enjoyed the slower pace of life.  Understated and endlessly kind, Mindi took some time out to answer some questions about what lockdown looked like for her. While she's not keen to switch careers to become a teacher, this talented photographer enjoyed spending time with her little people - enjoying the simple things. Tell us what an ordinary day in your house looked like during lockdown: We were very fortunate to have only endured short bursts of lockdown, but of course this can change...

Erin Lovell Verinder's Uplifting Oxymel - a recipe

Last week we got to speak with the wonderful Erin Lovell Verinder about her love for plants, magic in nature - and all things green thumb (well some of them at least).  Graciously, Erin has shared one of her recipes from her newly released book ‘The Plant Clinic’ ($39.99, Thames & Hudson). She says it best in the intro, but we have to say - this recipe reads like a gentle hug from a dear friend, when you’re feeling blue - so we can't wait to make it. Thank you Erin.    Uplifting Oxymel When internal clouds are heavy and there is no blue sky to be seen, this plant medicine is the most fitting remedy, a gentle offering working...

Flora for all seasons

Remember when you were small and every piece of bed linen, every rogue chair, oversized box - anything was included in fort building? It conjures feels of fun and adventure, innocent days full of sunshine and creative play. The brilliant Sophie Hansen of Local is Lovely captured her babe, on the riverbank peeking out of this ready-made fort. Pure joy. We can almost feel the grass underfoot, the babble of the water, and the butterflies in our stomach as we run in and out, hiding and dreaming up bigger worlds.  While not strictly created for forts (but who are we to say!) our quilts are handcrafted to be used however you deem fit. We love ours thrown - haphazardly - across...
