Home Living and Lifestyle Trends from Europe

For those of you who know me well, I love keeping informed of emerging home trends that are here to stay for a little while… One of the fun parts of having always been immersed in colour and design is checking out what’s happening in Milan and having the opportunity to forecast future trends. I love learning about the contextual relationships surrounding home trends. Why are they happening? Why the change? Right now one of the biggest...

Wall Hangings – A beautiful art

Wall Hangings – an Art Movement. I’m really in love with wall hangings at the moment. And what I love the most about them is that they gently move with you as you walk past. Like the hips of the girl from Ipanema, it’s the gentle sway that makes them so very, very cool. I’m also in love with the idea of being a maker. How wonderful to be creating designs that gain a following and allows you to earn a living from the comfort of your...

Meet Caroline of Better Me Yoga …and Sydney Mum

“When the gardener plants an apple seed, does he expect the apples to appear at once? Of course not. The gardener waters the seed, watches it each day, and feels happy seeing the growth. Treat the body in the same way. We water our asana and pranayama with love and joy seeing the small progress. While we know what our goal is, we do not focus on enlightenment. We know that when our practice is ripe, illumination comes.”  ~...

Moody, powerful, dramatic and winning

“As a long time amateur photographer, I’ve always loved experimenting with black and white photos. I find them moody, powerful and dramatic. I find design, photography, drawing, writing and other artistic pursuits of mine all feed into my creativity. They all help sharpen my ‘eye’ and I’m constantly refining and improving my design skills as a result. Anyway, a friend saw some of my pix on my private FB...

For the love of dance

“I started my dance studio after returning from the Commonwealth Games as a member of the swim team in 1986. I had given up school in year 11 due to being away on tour for 81 days that year so when I came back I pretty much had nothing, except dance. My one condition as an elite swimmer was that I was to be able to continue with dancing, which my coach enabled, and as a result I came home a qualified dance teacher. So it fell into...

How two mums run a successful Speech and Occupational Therapy practice for kids

Every now and again when the kids have driven me to breaking point I wonder what it is like for women whose everyday profession is helping kids to then switch into ‘mum mode’ and return to their own families. Julia Orsini, a Speech and Language therapist, and Kaya Lyons, an Occupational therapist, are two local mums and business owners doing just that. Together they run Kids Spot and Active OT 4 Kids in Sydney’s East...
