L'ESPRIT DE LA MER

Thu, 22 May 2014 at 14:20

We manifest magic. What an incredible & memorable & magical night.

It was my delight to set the scene for this occasion, from envisioning our salty soiree to walking the boards & breathing life into every corner on the day, styling & creating the floristry flurries for our Kinfolk Sydney event. Amongst a team of incredible talent, hosted by Eat Read Love, with Mario's Kitchen cooking up a storm & Luisa Brimble behind the lens & plenty more partners bringing their wares to the day. 

Salt sprayed, wind swept, scrubby & scrumptious, we welcomed a range of incredible guests, creatives & like minds to our long table in my home town of Avalon, what a treat to share Pittwater with those unfamiliar as well as welcoming many a local.

Set at The Avalon Sailng Club, we sipped champagne from the Champagne Bureau of Australia, feasted & chatted until the sun dipped & we rugged up with a warm, spiced apple crumble.

It was pure joy creating this collection, clarity, putirty & a subtle strength.

A few pieces from WHITE, please enjoy the full collection here.

WHITE is the culmination of meditative hours spent flitting between the space of here & eternity. Flickering moments. Contemplation of matter & the sublimation of such. A dive into clarity, into purity through cracking open our existence to sensation. Release. The trandscendsion of a blank canvas, through an expansive truth & the raw expression of it.

AVALON

There's always something so very special & exciting in the anticipation of creating a magical event, from scouting the location to musing & dreaming & planning.

Natalie Hayllar of eat read love, Mario of Mario's Kitchen, Photographer Luisa Brimble & I all met up in my hometown of Palm Beach to begin pulling together our ideas for the next Kinfolk dinner. We of course met where else but The Boathouse Palm Beach & then on to The Avalon Sailing Club where we had chosen to hold the event.

A dreamy day & always delightful when the four of us put our minds together, such a great synergy & collaborative approach for each of us to contribute our own touches of expertise & magic.

HOTEL CENTENNIAL

I am in love with this interior created by Luchetti Krelle & anyone who's ever been lucky enough to dine on Justin North's nosh, will be equally as excited to slink into this latest Sydney hot spot.

Eat Read Love gathered a group of exceptional creatives for another POP UP DINNER which I had the pleasure & delight of styling, creating a beautiful bounty of blooms & a slick menu design & place cards.

It was truly a night of substance & flair to celebrate the launch of this stunning venue & more pointedly, The High Table.
