• All Tied Up


    We recently discovered Maria Fischer's awesome 2010 book Traumgedanken, which brings together various texts on dreams in an analogue adventure of hyperlinked keywords. It's fair to say we're in a tangle, but an all so beautiful one. Images courtesy of Maria Fischer.

  • Yoga with a Twist


    For some it's about cats, dogs and goats, while for others it's beer. But the one that has our attention is with wine. We're talking yoga of course and we're ready to salute the sun, do the downward facing dog or get into the lotus position all with glass in hand. According to Handpicked Wines it's a double dose of healthy living.

  • Wish We Were Here: Any One of These


    Kicking back with a negroni on Lani's Holiday Island is our idea of zoning out, but we'd be happy at any Simple Pleasures location including the glamping pop-up in Byron Bay at Belongil Fields.

  • Playlist: Healing Frequencies


    Pitchfork featured Kelly Lee Owen in their Rising series at the beginning of the year and since then she's released her self-titled debut album charming the socks off critics across the globe. Her trance-like tunes with their techno traces and dreamy ambient sounds have us hypnotised and completely chilled.

    Vivid has cemented itself in the global calendar as one of the most vibrant light festivals with a program full of wonder, think busting a groove atop the Sydney Harbour Bridge for one. It's also broadened its reach stretching north across the harbour along with various precincts city side. We can vouch for Air's spectacular performance at the Opera House and the MCA's marvelous projections, but there's a wealth more to experience. Catch it before it ends on June 17.

  • Charter Hall: 175 eagle


    When This is Ikon was briefed to rebrand Brisbane’s 175 Eagle Street, we were in familiar territory on the back of our branding experience with other ‘Golden Triangle’ commercial properties.

    However this Charter Hall-owned building presented us with an entirely new brand personality to the CBD’s more dominant skyscrapers, with no less of a pedigree. The smaller size of the asset at 20 floors gives a more low-key, discreet prestige, and creates the advantage of a strong sense of community spirit within a modern corporate environment. This was reflected in the refined simplicity...

  • Wish We Were Here: Super Zen


    We're logging off in rural China where Beijing Archstudio have created a stunning spiritual Buddhist retreat and tea house in Tangshan. Think sparse, zen and beautiful; think bliss. Thanks to The Cool Hunter for enlightening us to its charms.

  • Flashback: Pop Life


    It hard not to smile, or laugh out loud, when looking at Alan Fear's paintings, either in admiration of the pop stars or the wonderfully surreal pathos of the scene depicted. For him it's about how great/stupid humans/life can be and how 'the pointlessness in life is the point to life.' We're struggling to choose a favourite, there are too many to love. Hop over to It's Nice That's article for more plus insight into his process and an inspirational quote or two from Alan. Images courtesy of Alan Fears.

  • Flores Fabulosas


    With a step to the side of what might be expected from a luxury brand, Loewe under the direction of Jonathan Anderson embarked on an exhibition at Real Jardín Botánico de Madrid late last year titled Past Present Future. Anderson’s ambition is that “Loewe should be a cultural brand,” which is clearly evident in the all encompassing show featuring archival imagery and extraordinary blooms by Steven Meisel, who worked with still lifes for the first, and hopefully not last, time. The arrangements, flowers, composition, light, colour et al are truly magnifico. Head over to Vogue for...
