Brisbane-based brand Nocturna has channelled this energy into its range of stunning luxury candles, using the beauty of nature and the mystery of night as its muse. more

Get greenery delivered to your door with Currumbin’s Plants in a Box

While trends come and go, there's one that has stuck around and we're pretty happy about it – plants. Not only do they give back to the environment, they add sass to our homes and, well, just make us feel good all 'round. While we all love a trip to the nursery or local botanical haven, time isn't always on our side. That's where Currumbin's Plants in a Box comes in. more

Cure your storage woes with Mustard Made lockers

When you were in high school, your locker was kind of a sacred place. It was piled high with text books, possibly a sandwich, Polaroids from that party, a secret love letter, while the inside of the door was probably scribed with two sets of initials beside a '4EVA'. A locker could say a lot about a person – it was uniquely you, which is exactly what inspired sisters Becca and Jess to bring lockers into the homewares landscape with Mustard Made. more

Doveton Fletcher knives are a cut above the rest

Food and design are two things that go remarkably well together. Each discipline leans against the other and they coexist as fundamental to one another. As the son of a shoemaker and a restaurant owner, former animator and current professional knifemaker Todd Neale was raised to respect both of the passions that fuelled his parents’ careers – and now kitchens across the country are reaping the benefits in the form of Doveton Fletcher knives. more

Thirsty for change – why you should be a responsible adult and ditch plastic water bottles for good

We're about to get all Captain Planet on you (you're welcome for that nostalgia hit). Okay, if there were certain places that served FREE and perfectly edible cheeseburgers every single day, would you go up the road and pay for one? Heck no. Well, newsflash – that's pretty much what we're doing with bottled water. Australians spend more than $680 million each year on bottled water when they actually don't have to. Crazy, huh? Well, it gets even more crazy when you picture how many individual bottles that equates to ... and where those bottles actually end up.  more

Plant-based gifts – The Borrowed Nursery unveils The Botanica Box

Gift hampers are funny things. Does anyone actually like getting fruit chutney, cleanskin wine and chocolate-coated ginger in an unfashionable cane hamper as a gift? No sir, we most certainly do not. That's why our hearts fluttered a little when we heard about The Botanica Box by The Borrowed Nursery. It's a newly launched botanical-inspired gift-delivery service that is ditching the less-than-appealing products for local goodness like plants, small-batch gin and hand-crafted candles.  more
