• Photography © Ana Degenaar A couple of months ago I picked out these beautiful linen sheets from CULTIVER and I have to say that these are the best linen sheets I have ever owned, hands down.

    This brilliant brand based in Sydney, Australia focuses on enhancing peoples' everyday routine through the luxury of their accessories — and that is very much what they’ve brought into our lives. Everyday luxury.

    If you've been part of this blog for a while, you might already know that I’m a linen advocate and I speak very freely about my growing passion — that is because linen happens to be one of the most comfortable, stunning and giving materials in the entire world... and that will not only be my opinion as soon as you get your hands on some.

    Of course, you might have already guessed that this is not the first pair of linen sheets I've own — but they are definitely the highest quality, the purest in color and the most fitting for all kinds of climates.

    CULTIVER also offers stonewashed bedding, vintage silk velvet cushions and premium Turkish robes. The selection of colors they offer are to die for and I’m regretting not having picked up some of their gorgeous pink cushions. But I cannot complain — not only do they offer care and quality in their products, they also provide the best customer service I have ever experienced.

    The only painful part was waiting just a couple of days for them to ship the package all the way from Australia to my neck of the woods in Brazil. Luckily the package didn’t take long to arrive and soon enough I had a carefully packed box on my doorstep: their Linen Flat Sheet With Border in charcoal gray, a Linen Duvet Cover in ice blue and a Linen Sheet Set With Pillow Cases in Indigo. I tried to pick a favorite, but as I mix and match sheets, I discover different moods — which makes it impossible to pick only one.

    We’ve been enjoying the sheets for a while now and as expected, they only get better with time. I’ve received endless compliments on the new look of my bed so I can only encourage you to either run to a store if you are close to one of their beautiful boutiques... or to indulge yourself and place an order today. All I can say is you will never regret it.

  • Photography © notPerfectLinen not Perfect Linen is a family-owned shop by Simona Rimkiene and based in Lithuania. Simona grew up watching her mother sew, surrounded by her brilliant ingenuity and craft. After testing the professional field as a Lawyer, Simona decided to embark on her business adventure with her mother and they started their absolutely stunning brand not Perfect Linen. I felt immediately compelled to share after reading Simone's words which very much encapsulate why I love linen so much: “The beauty of linen is that it is not perfect."

    The Rimkiene family focuses exactly on the idea that linen shouldn't anything but simple, natural and honest. I have to agree with that because after falling in love with linen a couple of years ago and repeatedly, thinking of it and gushing over it here - I've found that it only gets prettier with the pass of time. All non Perfect Linen items are made in a home studio with Baltic linen and as far as I can see, a load of dedication, passion and love. Raise your hand if you love linen.

  • Photography © Norsu Aussies are doing absolutely everything right. Just yesterday I was mentioning the great Country Road and today I luckily stumbled upon the amazing Norsu shop based in Melbourne. Norsu is the teamwork of mummy-friends Nat Wheeler and Kristy Sadlier - After meeting in a mum's group they discovered that they had one more thing in common: Their passion for Scandinavian design. In 2013 they embarked in this mission and have already earned awards for their incredible work and vision.

    The wonderful Michelle Halford of The Design Chaser (who also happens to be one of my favorite clients) styled the photos for Norsu's 2016 Collection and the brilliant photography was work of equally as magnificent, Lisa Cohen both, evidently genius Australian Artists. All this woman-power is extremely inspiring. Here's to many more women willing to love, support and work with one another in such visionary ways.
