Hotel Hotel – Canberra

Hotel Hotel is the latest greatest thing that has happened to Canberra. I was invited down for the weekend to check it out & wasn’t disappointed.

The staircase by March Design looks like a timber yard snap frozen with incredible cross sections making up the rises of the steps. Throughout the active lobby there is a nod to vintage educational tools: a mix of concrete pickup sticks, giant structures that mimic the paddle pop stick buildings you made as a child, & detailed with quisinaire-esque stained dining tables. The foyer is the hub of this project & it is all about finding your decorative background.

Each nook & cranny is textured considered & a little bit of mix and match but with a designer eye. I loved the raw & honest materials mixed with the fun frivolity from the beldi covered stools to the stack of metal suitcases.

In the rooms it is about the highs with the lows: chip-board clad walls with beautiful cast brass hardware, and the unique marble tops in the bathrooms that sit comfortably with faux wood tiles. But what I loved most was that its about the attention to detail: the ombre dip dyed velvet pillows, the solid light features with lovely mechanics that click in all the right ways, even down to the glasses & water that are in the room. 

Thanks for having us!

Butterland

We got to have a sleepover at Katie & Greg’s with Hazel & Minnie in their house/warehouse/work shop/furniture workshop/event space slash a little bit of everything. The first reinforced concrete building built in 1930s is covered in beautiful wunderlich tiles [but maybe Greg should confirm these details]. These guys are an ever so talented team- Katie Marx does the best flowers in town, but she is more of a forager & Greg’s tables are stories of nature. 

Complimenting each other- Katie has a real wonderfulness about her & Greg’s a guy with a sensitive touch with a rough exterior.

Check them both out

Poets Ode

The Stylists Guide to Adelaide

Poets Ode is in the foothills of adelaide, in postcard perfect, Hanhdorf.

I had the luck to squeeze in a visit (about 45 mins from airport) during a work trip.

The gorgeous owners, Alia & Scout have stripped back on old shop & embraced its raw humble self.  With a series of higgle piggle rooms, all sunfilled coming through the blown glass windows. Take note of the display pieces, found locally but oh-so European.

The shop is layers of muted tones: whites ,creams, caramels and sells cool stuff from all over the world.

 as well as having art showings. The artworks were round & detailed in copper, the velvet pillows were just the right mushy, the throws were striped or plain & edged in pom poms and a tea room is opening soon!

I loved everything and went away with an olive oil pourer, a cotton baby hat, a silk wool baby hat, a amulet necklace and a needle made from a thorn

Scarlett at The Harbour Rocks Hotel

The history of The Rocks has always sparked my imagination .

It started when I read ‘Playing Bettie Bow’ at school & continued with my study of Australian history .

It evokes the mysteries of times long ago , with it’s sandstoned paved ways , side alleys , tunnels & beautiful buildings

I have refreshed a secret place , down nurses walk & up a unassuming flight of stairs . It is named after the mistress of a merchant – a romantic tragedy involving class, adventure & true love!

Come for tipple at Scarlett

Each piece is bespoke, handcrafted&tooled, a historical nod to materials that would have been used when The Rocks was settled

Leather lined walls with Sleeper veneers creating the walls

The banquette is made from 200 year old sleepers, milled & oiled to anchor the room with feathered cushions covered in linen to settle into

A smithed & forged Copper topped communal table , all patched with flat head copper tacks

Antiqued mirror topped tables , all inky & stormy

Look at the details, a Pickle jar that most likely sailed into Sydney harbour full of Mediterranean olives , a sneaky Copper fire hydrant and And of course the model of the shop that Eric sailed on

All furniture designed by Sibella Court

Scarlett can be found at Harbour Rocks Hotel, 34 Harrington Street, The Rocks
