    Spot The Star: George Clooney x Yayoi Kusama for W Magazine December 2013.

    17th December

    George Clooney has got to be the ultimate silver fox. That aside, the sheer brilliance of Yayoi Kusama is enough to make me squeal with excitement. To top the whole thing off, just put Georgey-baby in an incredible Giorgio Armani suite, let Kusama go sick on him with her dots, bring in Emma Summerton to photograph the whole thing, and you’ve got yourself one epic cover shoot for W Magazine Dec 2013/ Jan 2014 issue…

    Christopher Jenner debut collection ‘The Looking Glass House’ at the Salone del Mobile 2012.

    20th June

    It’s no secret that, due to shit planning on Husband’s and my own behalf, instead of rubbing shoulders with the design elite and attending awesome parties at Salone del Mobile in Milan this year, I spent that same week at a maternity ward having given birth to our baby boy. In my true tragic design nerd form, I attempted to follow Milan developments from my hospital bed via various online channels (I am so sad, I know). One of the installation I bookmarked was ‘The Looking Glass House’ by Christopher Jenner – South African-born, London based furniture designer. Wowee – talk about pure visual ecstasy…

    The Obliteration Room by Yayoi Kusama at GoMA in Brisbane.

    27th January

    Yayoi Kusama is a contemporary Japanese artist who puts dots all over her world. Her obsessive compulsive nuttiness is close to my heart and Kusama’s is definitely one of my all time favourite artists. Since December 2011, Queensland Gallery of Modern Art (GoMA) has been showing her work in a ‘Yayoi Kusama: Look Now, See Forever‘ exhibition. Part of this event is a seriously cooltown interactive installation for children called The Obliteration Room – a series of rooms were painted completely in white where every room surface, piece of furniture and decoration was treated as a giant white canvas. Over the course of two weeks, kids were given thousands of colour dot stickers and were encouraged to make their creative contribution towards transforming the white space into one exploding with vibrant colours…

    Blog It Forward | What Inspires Me.

    22nd March

    I feel so privileged to be a part of the fantastic Blog It Forward project {you may remember it from my previous post} and to be able to share with you what inspires me. You know, this has been the hardest post I’ve ever had to write. Ever. I started, deleted, edited, deleted, started again, pasted bits in, scraped it all and started from scratch… Get the idea? I guess it is almost impossible to define what it is that inspires me. It can be anything, anytime and anywhere… But I know exactly how it feels when it happens as I get that feeling in my chest and in my belly – that certain warmth, a smile on my face, sometimes even a little tear when I feel deeply moved and truly inspired.

    I guess I am inspired by many, many things – big and small, obvious and hidden, special and everyday. I’ve decided to tell the story through the images which, to me, evoke that sense of beauty, special meaning and that certain “feeling”…
