Iran-born, Melbourne-living Elnaz Nourizadeh started working with clay and learning pottery when she was 17 years old. In 2008 she began her professional life as a potter in Tehran, then moved up and on to having her own studio upon arriving in Melbourne in 2013. Elnaz’s explorations in clay and candy colors are striking and functional, pulling the best from both the modern and ancient ceramics.

Rachel Craven Textiles

Chambray a trend that I flirted with in the 90s in the form of a Canadian tuxedo – sleeveless button-up and cuffed jean shorts (I know you know.) – then never thought twice about again. Now with 90s influences showing up everywhere I turn it’s back on my radar. Last fall I purchased a greyish-blue button-down that I love, but now I’m toying with the idea of summer pieces. The material is just about as perfect as can be for high temps, light and breathable and dare I say it effortlessly chic.

Burgers 10 Ways


Burgers, burgers, burgers.

My summer seems to be almost revolving around them. Cookouts at my mom and stepdad’s, hanging out with my dad and his girlfriend, and of course plenty of porch time with friends and paper plates balanced on laps. Now if I could only get in gear and have my propane tank refilled I could try these ten recipes that I’ve got bookmarked!

Horyon Lee

Horyon Lee-1-Design Crush


Horyon Lee creates fetishized images revealed through lifted dresses and skirts. The women in the paintings, the objects of desire, are presented as exhibitionists who are confident in themselves and their femininity. The overlapping imagery creates a dynamic impression, as if Lee has caught them mid-act.

Kahler-1-Design Crush


Kähler was family-run for four generations, from the foundation of the Kähler workshop in 1893 until 1974 when the last generation left the company. Since then the company’s focus has been on following trends and adjusting to them, which they’re remarkably good at. I can’t get enough of their homewares and hope to add some to my own collection soon.

Kumi Yamashita

Kumi Yamashita-1-Design Crush


The study of shadow and light is one that is never-ending. Japan born, NYC dwelling Kumi Yamashita has made a career out of it through his sculptures. Each object or series of objects relies on a single light source, the result being comprised of the material (the solid objects) and the immaterial (the light or shadow).
