I love Sydney and I love being so close to the Royal National Park. I went for a walk last week with a friend along the Coastal Walk from Watamolla to Little Marley about 5kms. We were welcomed by the little Blue Wren who thought he had a competitor in the reflection on my windscreen. The reward was having Little Marley to ourselves with pristine waters and dolphins. Well worth it, less than an hour out of Sydney.
I’ve been meaning to post this for a couple of weeks now, I had a wonderful night the other week at Coco Republic Design School.
I attended a lecture on growing a small business from the ground up by the wonderful Helen Lennie of Signature Prints.
Helen and her husband David founded Signature Prints and have built an iconic Australian and international business by treasuring and reestablishing the extensive collection of prints by Florence Broadhurst.
Inspirational, informative, passionate and tenacious would be the way that I would describe Helen and the journey she and her husband have taken in breathing new life into the Broadhurst prints. I’ve always loved the Florence Broadhurst collection, there is something about the elegance of the line work the bold colours and pattern placement that appeals to my visual sensibilities. When you see the hand made prints in real life, either in fabric or wallpaper, there is a richness to the quality of the print that makes it hard trying to resist a touching them.
Thank you Helen Lennie and Signature Prints, a very inspiring night!

This one is one of may favourites and as I was browsing through the Coco Republic showroom this colour way with the gold stood out as a new, rich and contemporary way to explore one of my favourite hues.
Both images are from the Signature Prints website, definately worth investigating to see the amazing work available.
