Antoinette Poisson

Whilst browsing on the internet I stumbled across this beautiful little shop in Paris. Antoinette Poisson produces single sheet, hand blocked wallpapers known as “dominos”, reproduced or inspired by 18th century textile and wallpaper designs. The dominos are made in their little shop using traditional 18th century techniques transferred onto hand made rag paper, then coloured or stencilled by hand. Comprising 8 sheets per square metre they can be assembled using as variety of combinations.

It’s great to find people interested in preserving artisanal techniques and exquisite designs.

Scout House-new store opening

The new Scout House store opened with a bang last night. Orlando Mesiti’s very successful home goods store is now located at 161a Fitzroy Street in St Kilda. A cute little food truck parked out the front served delicious pizzas and inside Prosecco was served in funky yellow cups.

Packed full of beautiful things sourced from all over the world, the shop is a showcase of Orlando’s skill in classic styling, colour and “finger on the pulse” fashion sense.

Definitely worth crossing the river for.

Barry’s Birthday treats

Barry and I invented a delicious cocktail in honour of his birthday last week. Start with a lovely glass, add your desired measure of scotch, top up with ginger beer, add one of Saucy Seven’s sweet chilli cumquats, top with ice and sprig of thyme. Delicious! This drink goes very well with Roquefort cheese and pickled octopus nibbles. Yummm.

Happy birthday Baz! xx
