INSIDE: take flight
Posted by Cerentha Harris on 7/31/2007

HARRY: Inspired by Sal’s giraffe I went off looking for my own piece of kid’s art. I came across Tinypeople - a new site and online store that ships in Australia and to the US. They’ve got a tonne of great stuff but the art they’ve collected is some of the best I’ve seen. It’s not cheap but it’s the kind of stuff your child can take with them when they move out!

INSIDE: wallpaper menagerie
Posted by Sal Taylor Kydd on 7/31/2007

SAL: Romp. Who can resist a site with a name like that? I love these these animal silhouettes which are made from hand-cut from vintage 60-70’s wallpapers - what a novel idea for your kid’s room? You can even add a wallpaper tree to complete the picture. Each design is unique and patterns are often limited, so you’re not necessarily guaranteed that the pattern of your choice will be immediately available. Judging from some of the designs on the site though, whatever you choose will be worth the wait!

INSIDE and out
Posted by Cerentha Harris on 7/30/2007

HARRY I’m having a Missoni moment. There’s something about those colours and patterns that is just pure joy to have around. I know these beach towels are expensive but if you’re like us you’ll have them for years so spending a bit now is well worth it. (They are also much cheaper than a Missoni dress!) I found these at Top 3, a very cool Sydney design store. But you can also get them at New York’s auto.

INSIDE: boconcept
Posted by Sal Taylor Kydd on 7/29/2007

SAL: If you’re looking for a bowl that offers something slightly different, you may want to check out the range of bowls from newcomer BoConcept. BoConcept has just recently opened up their Westside showroom, right next to Design Within Reach in Santa Monica and the good news is their prices are a lot more reasonable. Combining good design with affordability and endless options for customization, they are really bringing something new to the world of high-concept design. Their range of design services will help you get an idea of how a specific piece will look in your room before you buy, as well as customize it to have the armrest, leg design or front you’re looking for. Pretty nifty.

INSIDE: waste not want not
Posted by Cerentha Harris on 7/29/2007

HARRY: I came across this wastepaper basket (Eco) while flicking through the pages of Belle, an Australian design and architecture magazine (Treehugger also covered it ). It’s designed by 366cm, a Swedish design compnay known for it’s cutting-edge environmentally-friendly products. I really like that Eco is handmade and uses the material it will hold. Turns out 366cm has a lot of cool stuff. And their own online shop. The site is beautifully designed but as far as I can tell it’s all in French. If anyone can figure out how to switch it to English please let me know! (I’d like to point to Belle, it is such a beautifully designed magazine, but they don’t have a website.)
