Pretty packaging

How sweet is this packaging? It's so fun & festive! The motif (featuring a string of vintage-style Christmas lights) was even translated onto dessert plates for the 2009 Kate Spade holiday range in the US a few years back.

I saw this cute crockery on E-Bay the other day. I'm not sure how much they sold for but aint' they grand! Such a gorgeous colour palette!

Sass & Bide

Here's a little fashion aside to tie in with the design component of this blog. I really like Australian design duo Sass & Bide's last collection of very orange & very quirky pieces. Sass & Bide's last collection is currently on sale, so now's a great time to snap up some of their offerings.

Beautiful books (part 5)

So....I'm kind of addicted to buying books. My latest acquisition is a book I've been meaning to commandeer for quite a while. It's called 'The Flavour Thesaurus' by Niki Segnit. What originally caught my eye was the colourful, cutting-edge cover design. What won me over was the subject matter of food matching. The book dissects 99 ingredients & tells you what other ingredients work well with it. Saffron & white chocolate...who knew? The clever designers behind this remarkable book are 'Grade Design Consultants' in the UK.

Cute cards!

While these KSNY cards are no longer available, they're still worthy of a mention here! I love the colours, typeface & cute detailing on the envelopes.
