'MALACHI' BY JAI VASICEK

Saturday, October 18, 2014

Talulah Mahana, Anika Fleur, Melea, Serena Mahana and all the rest of Jai's ladies set the scene on Thursday evening for Jai Vasicek's second exhibition with us 'MALACHI', and by ladies we mean his latest stunning artworks based on Jai's childhood sailing the sea's with his family, lapping up what can only be imagined by us as Paradise. 


The store was transformed into a lush jungle of colour, for a night of wonderful company set amongst amazing works from Jai, which also included floor cushions, hand painted concrete bowls and handcrafted tables. 

And with sparkling Methode Traditionalle flowing from our ever so lovely event partners Terindah Estate why wouldn't it be incredible! 



Huge congratulations goes out to Jai Vasicek (applause, applause!) and huge thank you's to Mountain Goat and Capri, Haymes for our beautiful 'Blushing Peach' and 'Inner Depth' walls (more to come on them this week!) and Bright Young Things for the wonderful service. 

Thank you to all who joined us!


You can still snatch up a piece of 'MALACHI', view the works here and call us in-store or pop in to purchase. 

What a night!

JAI'S HERE!

Tuesday, October 14, 2014

Jai has officially swanned through the f&f doors, ready for his second exhibition with us and we could not be more excited!



'MALACHI' by Jai Vasicek has had Jai completely consumed re-visiting his childhood, which between boat life from Brazil to Africa, tropical fruits and treasure chest surrounds sounds like a movie script in the making! We took a minute to pull this busy bee aside and ask him a few questions before opening night this Thursday the 16th of October. 

1. We’re so excited for your upcoming exhibition, and we LOVE the name! Where did ‘MALACHI' come from? 
'MALACHI' is the name of my Dad's boat, and the boat I spent 15 years of my life on! This exhibition is collective of all the places I've been, so there's a strong island influence. My Dad is from Papua New Guinea and a big influence, along with my sister who actually dresses a lot like the girls I have painted for MALACHI! I used to paint these girls when I was younger, they are more of a representation of places and the feminine beauty that inspired me rather than actual people. 

2. How would you describe the pieces you’re working on? 
Probably the best way to sum them up is a playful and vibrant mix of different
cultures I've been influenced by during my childhood travels. 

3. Do you have a favourite? 
I actually do, and it's the main piece 'Malachi'. 

4. What’s the process like preparing for an exhibition?
Long! I have been hand making frames for the last year with my Dad, they are moulded from the hatch of Dad's boat, so in a way each painting is a real little piece of 'MALACHI',  which is pretty special. My Dad was a boat builder, and these frames really are an 'imprint' of my childhood. Apart from that it's been amazing re-visiting that part of my life, which has included spending time with my Dad in Port Douglas. I think the time lapse I did really shows the process the best! 

5. Finally, any requests for the playlist opening night? 
'Hang On Little Tomato' by Pink Martini. It's got a tiki lounge vibe, you'll love it!


'MALACHI' by Jai Vasicek opens this Thursday the 16th of October at 6pm. Jai's works will be available for viewing on our website this Wednesday at 6pm.  Please call or visit us in-store from 10am on Thursday to purchase any of the works. 

We look forward to seeing you at the exhibition! 

f&f and Jai!

MALACHI An Exhibition by Jai Vasicek

Tuesday, September 30, 2014

We are super proud (and excited!) to announce we will be hosting MALACHI an exhibition by Jai Vasicek. 

If you know anything about fenton&fenton you will know that we absolutely adore Jai and we couldn't be more thrilled to be hosting his second fenton&fenton exhibition. 

MALACHI will be filled with inspiration from Jai's childhood & youth. Jai spent a lot of his childhood aboard his fathers boat, Malachi, the namesake of the exhibition. Sailing through tropic islands and travelling through colourful lands. His work in this exhibition has a very island and paradise feel which works as an extension from a few artworks he touched on in his last exhibition, Paradiso. 

Expect bold colours, tropical motifs and ladies draped in vibrant textiles and jewellery - and that's just the artwork! In true Jai fashion, he has worked on a multitude of items for his artwork which include gorgeous bowls, fabulous cushions and even the jewellery as seen on the ladies in his artwork have been made into a reality. 

We can't wait! If you would like to come along to the opening night, then please send us through your RSVP including the number of attendees to events@fentonandfenton.com.au.

We hope you can make it & we look forward to sharing a glass of champagne with you on the night. 

Love, F&F

A Run Down On Rugs

Monday, August 11, 2014


It's no secret that here at f&f we believe the rug, or the Dhurrie if you want to impress, to be the heart of any room. It creates comfort under foot, adds texture AND colour and also has the ability to shape or segregate a space. We're not into rules but if you're looking for our top tips when choosing a rug, here they are! 

For a living room, typically the 'rule' is that your rug should extend underneath the furniture. To break-it-down, the bigger the better! Having your furniture sitting either half or all the way on your rug will not only give the illusion of space but will also frame the space, creating an 'area'. Too small and you will visually shrink the room. 




Having a rug under your dining table is a great way of lifting (or  covering!) harsh surfaces as well as adding a form of art, and the #1 for dining table rugs is that the rug should extend past the dining chairs when they are pulled out. This generally means a further 70cm around the edge of the table. There is nothing worse than chairs becoming hooked on the edge of your rug! Our Dhurrie rugs make fantastic under table rugs as they can be completely wet washed at a professional rug cleaners, so you can stress less about that glass of red that flew out of your hand! They are also double sided, meaning double the wear! 



Onto the bedroom, where our top tip is that you don’t necessarily have to have the bedsides on the rug. The rug can go up to the bedsides, under the bedsides or even towards the end of the bed. However, the rug should extend far enough from the sides of the bed that you have room to enjoy it and walk on it. Also, a round rug in a nursery or kid's room can be a bit softer and a great way to play with shapes. 









Hallways are a great place to play with colour. They are transition areas and you are never in them too long so are a great place to play with bold colour as you won’t tire of it as quickly. Hallways can often be quite dark as more often than not there are no windows, so again colour can be great! Also, as hallways are usually the introduction to the house, having a strong punch of colour will set the scene for the rest of the house. 





We hope you've enjoyed our rug run down! Feel free to pop into store and see us in the rug shop or you can play on our online rug builder here

A cuppa with Megan Weston

Thursday, August 07, 2014

Recently we sat down for a cuppa with Megan Weston and asked her some questions on art, kids & life!



1. Your recent exhibition with us was extremely successful, what was the highlight for you?

As an artist you spend a lot of time in the studio alone, working to bring a vision to fruition. Like a journey, it has it's ups and downs and you never really know what the outcome will be. So the highlight for me was when I saw the works installed at Fenton and I knew we'd got it right. It was brilliant being able to work in a collaborative team with Fenton where the end result enhanced the process for everyone involved.

I was honoured to have Mr Darren Palmer open the show because he has an incredible energy and an uncanny feel for contemporary detail. 

I was so excited to meet new and existing clients. people I've been in touch with with Instagram suddenly came to life and it was lovely to have that real connection. Everyone looked so gorgeous and it was 100% no-filter!


2. We love that your pieces resemble various aerial landscapes, where does this fit into the creative process? Do you decide on places before you begin?

It's funny, even though my pieces are aerial landscapes, there's many different ways to look at aerial landscapes. I'll study a variety of forms - it's like being an aesthetic explorer. I go flying with my pilot friends, I use satellite-based software, I look at printed materials - anything I can get my hands on. When something takes my breath away I want to be able to communicate that response in colour and form. So, yes, I always decide on location before i start, but that's more a point of departure than a point of arrival. Our experince of place is always emotional and I hope to be able to capture some of that in my work.



3. What's the most challenging part about your work?

There's a quote attributed to Leonardo da Vinci: 'Art is never finished, only abandoned'. I don't like abandoning things! I'm a perfectionist so i'll be with a piece until I'm completely happy with it. By extension, I'm a procrastinator. Once you start, you're there for the long haul so it can be a slow dance. My work has to live up to my my expectations otherwise what's the point it wouldn't be my work. 


4. Your children are adorable! Are they blessed with your creative flair?


I have two kids: Sunny, 8, and Iluka, 4. They definitely have it going on, but whatever it is it's entirely their thing! Sunny loves building things and creating various science projects with whatever he can get his hands on. Iluka has a flair for the dramatic arts. She's a great assistant, if somewhat stubborn at times! She's definitely determined. Her painting is quite amazing and she loves it. There's non of that self-questioning yet...




5. What would be your advice to people thinking of purchasing one of your pieces in terms of choosing colour and size.

Be open to the impression you receive from the work and the state of mind it elicits, rather than any sets of rules. However, I would say that it is important to let the art breathe, so larger is better if you have the space for it. In this way the artwork can be both an organic part of your world and a portal to another world.

In terms of colour, it's best to choose what speaks to you first. A lot of people get caught up in a scenario where it's 'a little bit of this, a little bit of that' but then you have too many competing demands and it's easy to get overwhelmed. Where possible, I think it is important to choose art and the floors first before you decide on anything else in the room. It's surprising how easy it is to make the other decisions once you've decided on the defining features, so you've automatically made life easier for yourself. 



6. We were blown away that you also made cushions, resin vessels and platters for your recent exhibition! Is this something we can expect to see more of? What is next for Megan?

I have an insatiable desire to create anything, everything and anywhere in between! In making homewares, you get a different sense of satisfaction to making art. I'll continue the vessels, the cushions, the platters because I love being able to make everyday objects that are both beautiful and useful. The possibilities are endless and that's the amazing thing about creativity. I've got a few surprises in store and I'm always listening to the gods. 



We are eagerly awaiting our next drop of Megan's fabulous artworks to the store - we are hooked!

If you would like to be contacted when we receive more of Megan's artwork through then please give us a call on 03 9533 2323 or email us at info@fentonandfenton.com.au to be added to our wait list.

Tray Time.

Monday, August 04, 2014

Raise your hand if you’re guilty of purchasing little bits and pieces that end up in hiding in cupboards because you have no way of displaying them all?

Enter the bone inlay tray. 




Our tray’s are the ideal solution, or frame if you will, for your favourite pieces to sit together. Pile your coffee table books up and top them with a pot or vase, scatter knick knacks from your travels amongst candles or store coasters and glasses. The options are endless!




Beautiful as a dining table centre piece, sitting on the end of the sofa or even outside in summer by the pool as spied at the lovely Rebecca Judd's Melbourne home. 


Shop bone inlay tray's here or visit us in-store. Another Indian treasure we believe.

Let there be Light. A How To.

Monday, July 28, 2014

Lighting is the key to creating harmony in any room and the best lighting schemes, as broken down by one of our favourite designers and lighting nuts Abigail Ahern, is layered lighting. “The trick is to blend, mesh together and harmonise both so you get this enchantingly lit beautifully glowing spaces” 

We thought we would break it down five ways. Hero lighting, clusters of light, lamps, highlighting and statement lights. 

Hero Lighting. This almost becomes your ‘piece of art’ in the room. Think grand. Think Chandeliers. Our wire chandeliers come in three sizes and are a great way of adding mood, atmosphere and balance to a hallway, bedroom or dining area. Plus, you can customise the colour to suit the space. Hint: Softer is better, no florescent energy saver globes!


Cluster of lights. Grouping lighting together is a great way to practically and creatively light a space. We think our cage lights are perfect for this method of lighting, choose different coloured cages and cords to add personality and vibrance!


Lamps. We are all for lamps, as in put them everywhere (well not everywhere, but you get what we mean!) One of our life rules is where possible you should have lamps on, main lights off! Part of making your house a home is with lamps, choose lamps that reflect your personality and style and fit the space. Bedside lamps don't have to match, desk lamps don't have to be for the desk. Have fun with lamps!

Highlighting. Highlighting objects, artworks or indoor plants adds another dimension to whatever it is you're showing off, and why wouldn't you! We are all for using lamps for highlighting. 


Statement lights. These are lights that do exactly that, make a statement. There is no better example than our star lights. Statement lights are a great way to add light to large spaces.

Julia Green Workshop at F&F Part 2!

Friday, July 25, 2014

Last night we hosted the Julia Green Workshop Part 2 which we can assure you was just as fun as the first with lots of yummy champagne (thanks Terindah Estate, your champagne rocks!!!). 

This time we learnt more about Julia's background before coming the styling superstar that she is. We bet you didn't know that she was a drug dealer (well...the legal kind) and had a full fledged career in pharmaceuticals before she realised that she had a knack for putting just the right combo of things together that make us all swoon.

Here's a few pic's from the night......

 

She uncovered all the secrets of what makes a great bedroom - both adults & childrens (remember, no theming please!). She told us where we should spend our money in the bed room and the benefits of a padded bed head (yes, there was a demonstration....). 

Julia even did some live shelf styling - if only we could style a shelf that quick in our own homes! Then she briefly touched on hallways - that dreaded area which happens to be the first place you see & seems to be the hardest to style - and how to make it a great entrance & welcoming area to your home. 



Thanks Julia - we are all off to rearrange our homes!

How To Make the Bed. Fenton Style.

Tuesday, July 15, 2014

Ahh bedtime, it’s the best part of the day let’s face it. There’s nothing like falling onto layers of soft linen and feather stuffed pillows after a day in the cold, which is why we’re going to show you how to make the bed, Fenton style.      

 (Baby Pepa not included) 


Firstly, there’s nothing wrong with creating a pillow paradise. You may not sleep with them all but adding cushions to your bed amps up the comfort factor and is the perfect way of linking your bedroom elements, whether it be artwork, a lamp or a throw on the end of the bed, these little pops of colour or pattern are often the missing link trust us- we love cushions! 

Next, we begin layering. Our handmade Indian block quilts are a divine way to add colour, texture and balance to your bedroom. They are reversible, warm and super doper soft.  Play around with having them folded to reveal the opposite side as well as your dovet cover. 





Next, add a throw. Whether it be a kantha quilt, an Indian ikat quilt or one of Jai Vasichek’s jersey throw’s we think adding this last layer is the all important final punch of personality to your bed. 



Browse the best of bedding here, or visit us in-store!

Now, is it time for bed yet? Well baby Pepa, is it?

Here's Comes The Wedding Registry!

Tuesday, July 08, 2014

Here comes the bride, and here comes the best way to get exactly what you've had your eye on at fenton&fenton! It's as simple as choosing a selection of items or one special piece you've been lusting after and we'll do the rest, including sending you out a registry card to include with your invitations. 

Click here for all the details. Meanwhile here's some food for thought! 



From left to right:

-Why not choose or customise one of Mr. Fenton's rugs together? Starting from the floor up in your home is always a great place to start. 
-Cushions are often something hard to splurge on, so why not let the one's you love do it with Megan Weston's beautiful feather filled cushions. 
-Our bone inlay trays are a must have for every home in our eyes. So versatile and such a great way to shape displays in your home. 
-Lighting is key. These cage lights from duckfat come in a range of cord/cage combo's, choose one for him and one for her. 
-Our resin and marble banana fruit bowls, cast from a real bunch of bananas are a fun and practical addition to your registry, who wouldn't want to receive this! 

And finally you of course have the option to choose a piece of artwork together, and what a beautiful present for your favourite people to get together and give you as newlyweds.

Coastal Calling

Thursday, June 26, 2014

Did you know we've passed the shortest day of the year and are officially on the way to longer, sunnier days? It doesn't feel like it but it's true! With this in mind, we thought it was the perfect time to share Inside Out magazine's latest feature on Lucy and Josh's holiday house in Angelsea,Victoria. Some sunnier days inspiration or a means of escaping the grey! 



A mix of old and new, Lucy and Josh have decked out their shack with vintage pieces as well as a collection of their fenton&fenton favourites. "We don't think too hard about our home's style, rather surround ourselves with things we love, you can't go wrong if that's where you decorate from" says Lucy. 



We have plenty of holiday home inspiration online and in-store, including our danish designed leather dining chairs (pictured above)

Meanwhile, desperately wishing this was us right now, hanging by the sea. *Sigh.

Monday, June 16, 2014

As our events are becoming more regular and anticipated we thought it was time we got ourselves an event partner and Terindah Estate, located on the Bellarine Peninsula, is just that, our new event partner! 

Surrounded by rows of grapevines, fig trees and countryside, Terindah Estate boasts some of the most breathtaking views in Victoria, which is probably why it has become renowned as a perfect picturesque wedding location. Along with the views comes the food, hailed by Gourmet Traveller WINE as the best in Geelong, and along side that some of the most beautiful wine and sparkling we’ve ever tasted. 

We shared our first event with Terindah Estate just recently with the opening of Megan Weston’s exhibition ALTITUDE. The 'Methode Traditionelle' sparkling was flowing for what was an elegant evening with wonderful company. 

A huge welcome to Terindah Estate, we think it’s a match made in heaven!

You can contact Terindah Estate here for information on wedding venue hire options, and speaking of weddings don’t forget we have a gift registry here at f&f!

The Baby Space

Wednesday, June 04, 2014

Creating a space for baby is a very special time, and here at f&f we love helping parents to-be fill their baby space with love. Here's some inspiration from the fenton&fenton walls, shelves and floors.

 Our main tip? Don't be afraid of a colour explosion! 



As seen above: 

-Create light with fun shapes, we love our star lamps from Duckfat! 
-Fill walls with art that lasts. Pictured above is this fabulous piece by Sean Herbert. Made entirely of (vintage) pencils, each one strategically placed to create something unique that will be loved well beyond the baby stage. 
-Dino Planters. Cute and colourful-tick!
-Pom Poms. The perfect way to add colour and texture. Hang over artwork or across babies first sleeping spot. 

Plenty more for baby in-store and online plus don't forget to follow us on Instagram
to see baby Pepa's favourite's!

Amanda Dziedzic Glass

Monday, June 02, 2014

We are constantly harping on about the impact colour can have on a space, and on your mood, so it was only a matter of time before we had fellow colour enthusiast and glass artist Amanda Dziedzic's glass pieces
join the fenton family.


And what pieces they are. 

Hand blown, delicate and sophisticated Amanda's clean and simple designs are a combination of her love of Japanese aesthetics, nature and of course colour. 

We love them grouped just as they are. 

You can find Amanda Dziedzic's glass yumemiru and display dome's at fenton&fenton now and online shortly.
They really do look magical against Megan Weston's latest pieces too!

 Cast from a real bunch of bananas and looks just as good empty as it does full!

New Kantha Quilts

Tuesday, May 13, 2014

If you often find yourself gazing at your bed or couch thinking, something's missing, it's probably a Kantha Quilt. And if you have a weakness for throws, traditional indian fabrics and just general 'prettiness' then you're going to love our new collection. 

The Indian Kantha Quilt is at the heart of f&f, lovingly made from used Sari's of cotton or silk, quilted with simple rows of stitches or with more intricate and detailed stitch patterns-all of our Kantha's are individual, unique and as beautiful as their origin. Our latest shipment is bursting with beautiful deep tones for winter. 



A beautiful addition to any bed, chair or lounge and a very special gift. We love our Kantha's.

The Mother's Day Edit

Monday, May 05, 2014

Mother's Day is this Sunday and here at f&f we love having a day to give our Mum's a big cuddle and say thank you for all that you do! If you're stumped at what to surprise her with, we've put together a little wish list below.
It's the Mother's Day Edit. 



1. Marble Basics pots. New to f&f these marble pots are perfect for indoors or outdoors. Complete with drainage and polished for extra protection they are both beautiful and practical. Fill with Mum's favourite plant as an extra treat!

2. Hydrangea Cushion. Like giving Mum a big bunch of flowers, but way better. 

3. Marble Basics bowl. A beautiful addition to any home and something Mum can use for just about anything. 

4. Bone Inlay Tray. We love our bone inlay trays and we bet Mum has had her eye on one for a while. (in-store only)

5. Canvas Bags. Cute and versatile these colourful canvas bags come in a range of colours and sizes. The perfect way to wrap a plant for Mum this Sunday. 

6. Grace & James Creamy Vanilla Candle. Made in Melbourne, these hand poured soy candles not only fill a space with fragrance but look amazing. Always a beautiful gift. 

7. Kantha Quilt. Handmade in India, our Kantha quilts are all unique sizes and patterns depending on the Sari they have come from. A very special gift. (in-store only and we have just received HEAPS!)

We hope we've helped narrow it down for you! Don't forget we also gift wrap and our beautiful new gift wrap, based on Mr Fenton's rugs, has finally arrived!


Love you Mum!

Updating Your Home For Winter

Thursday, May 01, 2014

A change in season is always the perfect excuse to shuffle things around and refresh your home. Winter is often misunderstood as the gloomy grey season, where often black is best, but not with us! No sir, there’s no need to lose colour just because the trees have, in fact there’s a need to add it-because on that inevitable day where your umbrella blows inside out leaving you saturated and desperate for a teleporting to the Bahamas, you’re going to need to walk inside and feel warm. 

There’s no need to wallpaper your walls with palm trees to beat the winter blues though, we’ve created a top five for creating a winter haven. 

1. Reindeer Hide’s. There’s nothing more inviting than a Reindeer Hide draped on the end of a bed or wrapped across an arm chair. If you haven’t felt just how soft they are, you’re missing out. All the way from Sweden, our Reindeer Hide’s are ethically sourced and the perfect way to winter-fy a space. 

2. Green. Adding different tones of green, either with scattered foliage, cushions or even a rug is a great way to keep colour in your home. Team with different textures like velvet, cashmere and wool for instant warmth. 

3. Candles. Winter scents make for a cosy home. We are loving our Grace&James Spicy Pear Candle for when the chill is biting. 

4. Quilts. Adding that extra layer to your bed is what really makes it feel like winter. Our block quilts are the perfect extra layer, handmade with love in India, they are double sided, easy to wash and mighty warm. 

5. Floor runners. And finally, adding a runner to cold spaces with tiles or stone floors is the perfect way to create warmth and comfort under foot. A runner should compliment the space it’s in by adding texture and personality. Mr.Fenton’s Rug Shop has a range of runners-or why not have one custom made! 

Somebody put the kettle on, it’s getting cold in here!

Marble Basics

Monday, April 28, 2014

We are very excited to welcome 'Marble Basics' to fenton&fenton. As one of the most durable and enduring materials, Marble is a wonderful and practical way to embrace basics in your home. 

Bonnie and Bliss Adams are a sister duo from Melbourne whose adoration of Marble has lead them to designing an introductory line of multi-purpose basics. 

Bonnie, who is actually one of our lovely and talented staff members, is very open to how you use or style your marble, whether it be decorative or practical. It could be a large bowl on display in the bathroom or a small bowl on the bench filled with keys and misfits, it’s all about making these beautiful basics fit into your lifestyle. 


Marble Bowls, small and large. 

All pieces are honed grey and white marble, except for the pots which are polished to protect them from the elements. 


Marble Tray and Pots. 

Marble Basics are now in-store and online at fenton&fenton. Pop in or shop the collection here

Mr. Fenton's Rugs

Monday, April 14, 2014

If you haven't already heard, Mr.Fenton's rugs are officially making the move from rug stand to rug shop! 'Mr.Fenton's Rug Shop' will be upstairs at Fenton & Fenton (that's right, you can finally come up the mystical white staircase) and is set to open next week. 

We are thrilled to have a space dedicated to our rugs, also lovingly referred to by Mr.Fenton himself as the humble dhurrie. In addition to offering more classic designs than you can poke a stick at, in every colour imaginable, Mr.Fenton has set about creating an ever increasing range of designer dhurries that defy, not only the cruel reign of the expensive pile rug over the unassuming dhurrie but the inherent flatness of the floors that have so long held the dhurrie back from greatness. 

Be sure to follow Mr.Fenton on Instagram @mrfentonsrugs for all the information on our grand opening plus an
ever growing collection of inspiration and our favourite rug snaps plus you can play
with designs 24/7 on the rug builder here

For any specific rug related enquiries flick us an email at rugs@fentonandfenton.com.au and one of our friendly
rug specialists will be able to help. 

See you at the rug shop! 


Ahoy! Cushions & Throws

Thursday, April 10, 2014

It is no secret that Jai Vasicek is one of our most adored artists and can do absolutely no wrong in our eyes.
His new range of cushions & throws due to land in May are AMAZING. We can't wait! 

His throws are screen printed and hand stitched onto cotton jersey perfect for those winter months that have snuck up out of nowhere. "Gaudeloupe" has been digitally printed to reflect Jai's amazing tile artwork, the colours are so vibrant & beautiful. They are 1.4m x 2m - the perfect size for a single bed, draped across the end of a queen or king, or thrown over a sofa to curl up with a hot cup of cocoa to keep warm. 

The cushions are printed on super soft cotton chord and most are double feather filled - so lush! They are 55cm x 55cm and all feature Jai's trademark artwork style. They all work so well together & you really can choose any combination - but they are still as equally strong on their own if you are only on the hunt for one
(seriously, how good are those papayas!).

The cushions & throws have been added to our online store and are available for pre-order!
You can view the range here. Be quick!! 

Somehow now winter doesn't seem so bad....


A Workshop with Julia Green

Friday, March 28, 2014

Starting to style your home is incredibly exciting but on the flip side often incredibly overwhelming.
How many is too many cushions? What should be the hero in the room? Can I put a rug on my carpet?!

We hear ya, that's why we decided get a bunch of cheese, olives and champagne and hold a workshop with fenton&fenton's favourite stylist, Julia Green, who came armed with her rainbow of tips and tricks on how to give your home a heartbeat. For those who missed out, never fear we will be holding more workshops within the f&f walls in the near future, and also, we took notes....


And here they are, the top ten with Julia Green.

1. There's no right or wrong. Go with your gut instinct.


2. What colours make you happy? All colours have emotions attached to them, make sure you're creating the right mood in each space with colour.

3. Start with art and floor. Repeat after us, art and floor, art and floor. Everything else can fit in around these two elements.

4. Dimensions are key when talking art and rugs. Style is not all about pieces, but about proportions and getting them right.

5. Think outside the box. Clip it. Tape it. Paint it. Display it.

6. If you're thinking “what's missing?” it's most likely foliage. So get some green in there!

7. Pull multiple pieces together to create mood.

8. A rug will make your room sing.

9. Different heights create interest.

10. “Creativity is not something that is always taught....but if I can do it, you can do it!”





We were thrilled to be joined by lovers of interiors, art, design and everything in between to peek inside Julia's much sought after way of thinking and styling and we would love to hear from you on what you would like to learn about or who you'd like to hear from in future workshops. You can contact us here with any feedback.
For now, we're off to pick on left over cheese and olives.

Hipanema Bracelets

Monday, November 18, 2013

We have just received the most amazing bracelets and are eager to show them off! 

HIPANEMA come into being after two Parisian girls met in Rio. Inspired by colours seen during their travels, the two young blondes from Paris decided to bring back some Brazilian glamour in their suitcases. This is how it all started… The very chic magnetised clasp offers a great alternative to the holiday bracelets. The Brazilian ties go from being a post-holiday drag to being a real ethnic fashion accessory which livens up our urban wear.

You can purchase online, but be quick! We are sure that these won't last long!!!
