Home Living : June 12th 2012
4 HLN - HOME LIVING: NORTH, Tuesday, June 12, 2012 MB PRODUCT GUIDE THE PRETTY PAPERWORK Janita Singh Serenity now . . . Buddha screens Hydrangea tablecloth. Apple Heart has matching canisters. Paper-cuts use traditional methods. TODAY'S home decorating goes back to our love of nature. And why not --- with many of us pinching our pennies, extravagant living is a luxury we can't afford. But this doesn't mean compromising on style. Luckily, economic caution has inspired crafters to design beautiful, simple, and stylish products to decorate with, and most of them are inspired by nature. The blue sky, earthy and green outdoors and colourful flowers are forming part of home decorating and there are innumer- able ways of bringing nature indoors. Here's some inspiration. Paper-cutting is an ancient folk art which can be traced back thousands of years. Traditional paper-cut artworks were de- signed to evoke the happiness of festivals or lively spirits of children and animals, while demonstrating an affinity with nature. It contrasts with modern methods, which are now laser-cut or done by machinery. H&Cs (hardwick & cesko) signature Pa- perCut artworks expertly cut the finest rice- paper using traditional methods -- a scalpel, a human hand, love and patience. RRP from $79. Details: hardwickandcesko.com.au or downthatlittlelane.com.au/sellers/ hardwick-cesko With a style reminiscent of Scandinavian designs of the 1960s, the Apple Heart range has universal appeal. These smart hom- ewares suit both contemporary and country style kitchens and pantries, and includes matching tea, coffee and sugar canister sets. RRP from $19.90. Details: 1800 65 11 46. If it's about creating serenity in your home, everyone seems to own at least one Buddha head, statue or painting. The figure has become visual shorthand for zen decor and now you can create your own zone for rest and play with the cleverly designed Buddha screen savers. RRP $129. Details: daregallery.com.au Hydrangea is a striking screen-printed design that features the big, round clusters of delicate petals found on the hydrangea plant.
