Watercolour Workshop

Saturday, November 07, 2015

When designing our new range of tea towels we wanted to look in fresh new directions. We began this process with the enjoyable experience of experimenting with watercolour and inks. 

We love the washed out effect these paints can achieve and they give a relaxed casual feel to the prints. We have always had fun with spots and stripes and thought we’d give them a modern twist.

Turquoise is one of our favourite colours, its mix of blue and green shades is lovely and lively and has a sweet feminine feel. Whilst our darker charcoal and black range brings a monochrome sophistication and is perfect for the more modern kitchens.  Our clients have requested we try a monochrome palette for a while now, well we think we have delivered and love the new look. 

Christmas in July

Sunday, July 12, 2015

We recently styled two looks for the hardtofind blog for a relaxed Christmas in July.

Our first look was a modern Australian take on the traditional ‘red and green’ for a festive approach. We used our organic cotton Succulent print tablecloth and napkins in Citronelle green as a back drop and styled with lemon yellow and bright berry red for a fresh new look. Using simple red berry foliage and a little string of bunting added further texture and a bit of Christmas cheer. 

Our second look used a neutral back drop with splashes of mint, grey and lemon and bright baubles for a more ‘scandi’ look. Our versatile organic cotton Succulent print tablecloth in Feather Grey layed the foundation and was complemented by simple stoneware in pastel hues. We love how the felt bauble garland added warmth and character, and brightened the whole mood of the table, making it feel instantly more ‘christmassy’ Sprigs of rosemary in glass jars added some lovely foliage and scent to the table, and are an easy style solution along with little bundles of natives and berries tied with twine at each place setting.

A Little Meat Free Easter Recipe

Tuesday, April 15, 2014

As the Easter long weekend approaches we thought we'd share a little recipe which can be enjoyed for brunch, lunch or a light dinner this long weekend. Its especially nice for a meat free Good Friday treat. We think it looks gorgeous too!

Asparagus and 3 Cheese Tart

180g butter
240g flour
1 tsp mustard
¼ Cup cold water
Process pastry ingredients, adding water gradually until a ball forms. (you might not need the whole ¼ cup). Wrap pastry in cling film and refrigerate for ½ hour.

Preheat oven to 180˚C.

Roll pastry out to fill tart tin.

Prick pastry and blind bake with weights for 15 mins.
Tart Filling:
220g Ricotta
200g Cottage Cheese
50g Smoked Cheddar Grated (you can also substitute this with parmesan)
6 Eggs
Salt + Pepper
2 Bunches Asparagus
Combine all the ingredients in a bowl except the asparagus. Once the tart shell is blind baked, pour in the egg mixture.

Snap off woody ends of asparagus and discard. Arrange asparagus on top of the egg mixture. You can fan the asparagus out to achieve a nice circular pattern, using any good off cuts to fill in the gaps.

Bake for 35-40 minutes until golden and set. Serve with a simple side salad.
