Fabric: Infrared Landscape from Tessuti (I think sold out sadly, but check out their gorgeous silks and silk blend fabrics). Pattern: NewLook 6123 in view A & D. The fabric has such intensity of colour, a lovely soft drape, and a beautiful Monet-like floral image. I placed the pattern pieces so the lightest areas of the print would fall [...]
Hey, there’s a new Kiosk on the southerner’s side of the river! We refreshed the original Kiosk Floreat Beach website & launched the new Freo site just a couple of days ago. Thanks to the OM4 guys for taking my ordered-but-mad design and making it work. Congrats & good luck to Jaqii & Stefano.
It’s the modernist dream house nonpareil. Where my love of cocktails, midcentury mod, architecture & swimming pool swanning meet in complete accord. The Paganin House on the Boulevarde, Floreat, is up for Auction – one of the stand-out examples of Iwan Iwanoff’s work. Also for sale, the Iwanoff Dianella House (Shannon Rd), a later construction, with [...]
Hey, Shag was in our house! So Shag – aka Josh Agle – is back in Australia, jetsetting into Perth’s Outré Gallery for his exhibition opening last Friday night. We caught up with Josh & Martin on Sunday for a beachside breakfast at The Kiosk - with champagne, naturellement – followed by a tour of the modernist enclave of Floreat [...]

I happened to know the answer to an obscure question about Rob & Andrew’s short-lived foray into the mad world of Rock & Roll Country & Western, as Tragic. (Apparently the band inspired [...]

Yesterday I offered considered opinions & a few ill-considered puns to the students of Room 259 in the CIT Bunker. Thanks for your attention & your warm welcome via the Area57 Newsletter! Looking forward to seeing the results of your hard [...]
I’m so excited to be involved with the talented 3rd year Graphic Design students at Central on a real-life industry project. Looking forward to meeting the newest, freshest batch of industry creatives… Hi guys!
Those nice fellows at Organ posted about my work yesterday on Australian Infront. Hey thanks for the exposure guys! (I find it funny to be referred to as an “accomplished knitter” – that’s going on my C.V.)
Just received my MooLuxe business cards – chunky triplexed cards for a startlingly good price. They are digitally printed on beautiful Mohawk Superfine paper, with a colour layer in-between. Think TimTam, Monte Carlo or Tina wafer biscuits. Yummy! You can feature a different image on the reverse of every single card. And they arrive in [...]
Everything’s happenin’ in the Shenton Park precinct!Just down the road from OM4 & a stone’s throw from RedTiki, the Suite & the Little Pantry, is the minimally chic Excelsior Deli. Concrete blocks, blonde timbers, happy-face cakes and lovely Linda make it worth a (daily) visit.
