1/ Selenite Candle Holders from $30
These stunning raw Selenite candle holders from Harper and Wilde emit the most beautiful warm glow when lit. It's something a little different to a standard ceramic vessel as these are more translucent and adds a unique natural textural to your space. This luminous crystal is also known for its healing properties, helping stabilise and balance the emotional body, and is named after the Greek goddess of the moon, Selene. Go on guys, get your goddess on!
2/ Meagan Donegan Limited Edition Art Prints from $100
We have been fans of Meagan's work for some time now and with some changes happening in both our homes we are always looking to add to our art collections. These prints, in particular the Sheep and Rams are so enchanting yet regal. The way these animals are hand drawn in such soft detail makes them sophisticated for any space. It's a great way to bring in some animal like texture and personalty without having an animal product.
When it comes to art - we will always opt for bigger where possible and the larger prints available measure 660mm / 26" for only $300.
3/ Spot Floor Lamp by In Common With from $450
In Common With is New-York based and manufactures customizable furniture, lighting and objects, on-demand. We have fallen head over heels with their tightly curated range and in particular their Spot Floor Lamp. With its polished design, the spot floor lamp comes in three sizes and can be adjusted with the touch of a finger. This lamp is subtle in design and elegance working alone or grouped together as a collection. Everything is handmade and made to order. This is a brand to watch with a few collaborations in the works that are mind blowing amazing.
4/ The Solay Mattress from $895
There are a few things that come to mind that make us feel like we are living a real adult home life. Real art ( not posters from Urban outfitters ) , a nice dining table that fits more then two and a high quality mattress. Up until a month ago we were sleeping on a cheap mattress we had always vowed we would replace asap. It's been more then two years and we have FINALLY upgraded to the latest and greatest from Solay Sleep. We now enjoy six layers of support that have been specifically engineered to give gentle but active support, keep you cool and reduce motion transfer. We have never felt more excited about a forbidden early afternoon nap or curling into bed after a long day. The team at Solay are kindly passing on a special discount to all our Stylephiles - just enter the code STYLE10 to receive 10% off your order.
5/ Mobiles by Lappalainen from $265
For years we married the concept of mobiles to kids spaces and that was that. Now with sculpture becoming a must have design element, it's aspirational but doesnt have to send into a black hole of credit card debt. We are always on the look out for objects that have the sole purpose of just being beautiful with no function required. Introducing Lappalainen. These handmade mobiles from Frankfurt are on our lust list in black, brass and copper. Imagine these quietly clustered over a dining table or even a kitchen island in replacement of the standard pendant light. Stay up to date by following these makers on Instagram.
Shopping responsibly is extremely important to us and we love to promote brands that are making great things and also doing something kind to the environment and our community. We are so inspired by the Salvaging Baltimore initiative and the furniture range that has been created as a result. Using timber that has been rescued from abandoned homes we are blown away by how many people this project has touched. This project not only creates jobs for people who have barriers to employment, it reuses forgotten materials that are extinct ( yes certain timbers are no longer growing in our forests ) to create modern list worthy furniture. Room and Board have taken these recused materials and created a beautiful range that you can shop America wide.
