As the month of March quickly became April, we were kept busy with both Elements i love.. and our big brother warehouse Architectural & Antique Elements – some days are a little more chaotic than others!
The warehouse took on a whole new look last week as floral arranger extraordinaire, Sean Cook from mrcookflowers used the space for a photo shoot and showed us what you really can do with flowers. It was amazing to see buckets of flowers transformed into a really beautiful floral arrangement – which is destined for the pages of a floral called..can’t wait to see the finished images in an upcoming flower book…
Interior design work has kept me rather busy too, as the new house of a very passionate client (!) starts to come together. I have been working on this project for quite sometime now and as it is built around a broad selection of architectural antiques, the installation & finishing of these pieces is essential to the whole look and feel of the place. Its exciting to be at this stage opposed to working around a set of plans and waiting for the excavator to get out of the way – more of this later….
Since opening our store Elements i love… in Surry Hills we have been approached by a number of small specialist companies hiring items for vintage weddings and special events ~ if you are planning a soiree or an event that has to have that je ne sais quoi – we would love to talk to you about the possibilities…
Another facet of our ever expanding world of Elements i love… are the serendipitous meetings and connecting with like minded people and how we are able to utilize the beautiful space at our store or warehouse to showcase their unique wares, be it artwork or bespoke pieces of jewellery.
At present we are delighted to have some pieces from the recent Martyn Thomspon exhibition Falling in Love at the Institute, these limited edition still-life photographs will take you to the South of France at first sight and are perfect amongst the French pieces in the Surry Hills showroom..
Last but definitely not least is the ‘ little bit boho, a little bit rock n roll’ range of jewellery and leather goods range by Republic of You. Nicolette has put a personal stamp on each piece by naming them… Remember, Adorn, Bygone Blue – all come beautifully boxed with hand cut fabric swing tags – a lovely gift for YOU or something groovy for mothers days! (just around the corner)
