Having had the pleasure of working with the team at 0.5 for a giveaway last year allowed me to discover a brand I have fallen in love with. Visually, 0.5 convey the brands ethos and aesthetic, with no additional noise required. Their products are made from up-cycled dead stock fabrics and the colour palette is beautiful. A must to discover..

When I discovered Carla's illustrations earlier this year, I discovered my favourite illustrations of 2020. The breadth of designs never waiver in their uniqueness and the colours (Can you tell I'm colour obsessed?) are a beautiful blend of a Spanish revival homes in California and dusk during the early Summer months.

Cedar create candles and diffusers for the home, but what continues to inspire me is the brands modern, highly considered array of images shared on their social channels. The majority of industries have become considerably saturated in the past few years and respectfully standing above your competitors is more important than ever. Cedar take this challenge in their stride and continue to produce beautiful content for their community.

Back in 2014, my husband and I were fortunate enough to spend two weeks in Bali and ever since, we have dreamt of returning to this incomparable world. Until that time arrives, I find myself taken back to the island through the works of Patty Searle. Her account showcases the beautiful vistas, quiet corners, jungles and luxury locations across the island. I can almost taste the food, experience the culture and capture the scent of the island once again.

Copenhagen based brand Aure Studio only very recently appeared in my feed and I'm so glad they did. I love when a brand creating modern products understands that simple shouldn't be straight forward and basic shouldn't be bland.
