The Your Home and Garden team have shared what’s new in the homeware scene that they’re loving – and we immediately added them to our lust list
1. Beach umbrellas
These vintage-inspired beach umbrellas by Byron Bay-based designers Sunday Supply Co are the perfect accessory for long days at the seaside this summer. Made in sturdy materials that are designed to age naturally, this new range is also finished with cute cotton tassels that dial up the nostalgia factor. Varnished beechwood and custom-designed aluminium alloy hinges and hardware make these the perfect marriage of style and practicality. Each umbrella is $299 from paperplanestore.com.
2. Green Home Book
This dreamy coffee table book by stylist Susanna Vento and photographer Riikka Kantinkoski is just what you need if you love house plants or want to start using them in your home. Green Home Book is full of plant species you’ll love, as well as easy and concise care instructions for more than 50 types.
Along with gorgeous greenery, these pages are also full of beautiful homes. Leaf through and be inspired by the houses, inventive interiors and enviable atmosphere. Green Home Book is AU$77 from simpleform.com.au.
3. Tropical furnishings
Add a splash of the tropics to your outdoor area this summer with a stunning Ohope outdoor cushion. Featuring tropical plants, birds and rich colours, these are the perfect way to add pattern to your space and will only set you back $29.90 each.
Available at all Bed Bath & Beyond stores nationwide.
4. Pastel serveware
The Sorbet Collection by Le Creuset is a new range of sweet, pastel-coloured cooking and serveware inspired by nostalgia for the childhood pleasures of endless summer holidays, ice creams and days at the beach.
We love the sorbet colours and cute shapes of this collection, which includes egg cups, mini casserole dishes, dessert bowls and even pudding spoons. Check out the full range at lecreuset.com.au.
5. Pretty pots
Talented photographer and stylist Amber Armitage has released a collection of hand-painted plant pots in collaboration with Mood Store just in time for summer. The range is based on a series of paintings entitled ‘Horizon Lines’ and comes in two Resene colourways.
The idea is that you can mix and match different sizes and colours and juxtapose the patterns on these lightweight fibreglass and plaster pots. They are available in four sizes and priced at $95-$355 from moodstore.co.nz.
6. Botanical bed linen
Australian home linen company Sanctuary Studio works closely with local and international artists to produce luxe statement pieces including cushions, candles, beach towels, weekender totes and more.
Bright botanical prints sit alongside subtle neutrals and fun neon designs. Check out the latest collection at sanctuarystudio.com.au.
7. Chic shelves
The Essentials range from Mocka is a selection of modern, functional furniture basics for an affordable price. New to the range are these large and small bookcases, which are ideal for a living room, kid’s bedroom or home office.
With open shelving and enclosed sections with sliding panels, you will find ample room to store and display all your favourite reads, as well as a few beloved extras such as vases, mementos and house plants. The bookcases are also perfect for smaller rooms as they utilise vertical space and won’t take up a lot of precious floor real-estate. These flatpack shelves start at $129.95 from mocka.co.nz.
