A girlfriend of mine once asked where I hide all my ugly stuff. I believe that nothing has to be ugly. I'll keep an eye out for something old, well-made and so considered in its design and material over the quick buy. This applies to hole punches, receipt pins, string holders, tape dispensers and the like.
Not only are you recycling & saving some room in landfill, but you are bringing back the past with well-made, well-designed machinery that continues to be relevant & functional in our digital age. Why not choose a material or colourway that helps you sort through the visual noise and hone in on what you're after. For example, I might choose timber with earthy-toned rust details, but perhaps you're more inclined to look for the shiny thing – just like the bowerbird gathering his blue nest decoration.
Perhaps you might set yourself the task of replacing one of your quick buys, such as a pair of secateurs or a multi-purpose clip, with a more time-worn and history-rich option. That way, you can accumulate your collection slowly, in a treasure hunt-style fashion. For me, the treasure hunt never ends...

We whizzed down the back streets of Seminyak and the smaller the streets became the deeper we time travel into a Bali of a time gone-by...
This year, my dear friend and photographer; William Meppem and I captured the essence of this perfect boathouse, located in Newport, Sydney. The ideal spot to drop your anchor this holiday season.
I have dreamt of a boathouse escape for many years and all of my dreams have come true in a recent visit to a space that captures it all, The Salty Dog. This miniature house provides all of the nuances of boat building within its own minute space. Situated amongst the quintessential Sydney landscape of emerald green water and unique sandstone structures - surrounded by angophora gums.
With the extension of the dinghy & direct entrance to the water, this house evolves into an explorative landscape that extends beyond its petite footprint. If I were to create the ideal boathouse... This would be it.
