Once again our friends at Citta Design have set their sights on a corner of the globe and explored it in all their design led strength! This time the city which inspires their new collection is Hanoi – and the result is “A Midsummer Daydream”. The collection is rich with indigo’s darkening to navy and citrus yellow, softened with pastel mints and stabs of rich red. My first impression was that is was the least graphic of their ranges in a while (which could be a bad thing as we

To be fair guys, this is NOT breaking news! Imagery of the most recent Citta range has been doing the rounds online…and rightfully so. “A Winters Tale” is inspired by the beautiful nordic city of Copenhagan, and once again that close knit design team has poured their ideas across everything you could possibly think of or need in your home – offering another cohesive and down right attractive collection! So I decided to go for a trawl and check out some of my favourites. Many of these are listed “Coming

It is highly likely if you are an NZ homewares nut that you will have at least one Citta Design item in your nest. From teatowels to bed linen, ceramics to bags the brand has become iconic for its twice yearly collections inspired by countries and cities of the world. I have always felt there was an element of mystery surrounding the design and production of larger brands collections. Who designs them ? How do they get their ideas? Who does what? How on earth do they get from the

Alice Berry’s invitation to her exhibition ‘Wonderland’ really made me sit up and pay attention! Over the years I have watched as Alice grew a wholesale print empire that got the nod from many as a shining example of a young creative “doin it for herself”! Her work was fun, graphic and light hearted – a total winner for the card and print shelves of boutique design stores across the country. (You may have seen or even own an Alice Berry Llama?) So when the beautiful painted abstract invitation arrived I did a

While the Helix Table might be the latest arrival in the stable of David Moreland Design, I decided to share much more of his back catalogue as its so GOOD! Aside from his wide ranging collection of furniture and lighting, David regularly works on custom fit outs for a variety of commercial level projects not to mention ongoing design work for Citta! I love his distinctly “smooth” lined aesthetic that feels so modern while still maintaining a softness.  Explore more from this leader in NZ design here PLUS his stockists!

The new sundrenched range from NZ’s own; Citta Design has now dropped in stores and online. Keeping to their tradition of global inspiration, it was Greece and life “under the sun” which inspired the extensive collection of homewares, furniture, accessories, jewellery and fashion. I’ve just been wafting around my apartment with the sweet summery smells of this fragrance diffuser. It was super hard to edit down what to share, so I would suggest if you see even just one pattern/product that appeals to you pictured here that there will be

On Saturday afternoon I scooped up 5 of my girlfriends and hooked onto a special transport circuit sweeping around 11 central Auckland stops for the 2013 Urbis Designday. Following on from the sneak peek I got behind the scenes of the prep and set up of the Whitecliffe College of Arts and Design + Hewlett Packard installation, I thought Silo Park was the perfect spot to kick off our adventuring. We weren’t disappointed! It was fantastic to see the completed work spanning across the hard core construction (Daphe’s bridge that

Yesterday afternoon I was lucky enough to attend the Media Launch of Citta Design‘s winter range – Londontown. While I had had a few sneak peaks at some products while shooting the design team behind the scenes a few weeks ago, to see the entire range in full was..well…homeware heaven. The designers also took a fun approach by designing for five distinctly different characters who they imagined to live in modern London. The Eccentric, The Vintage, The English Rose, The Proper Gent and The Sloan. This has meant that while

By the time the day rolled around to head to Noho and meet with Luke Harwood at his New York coffee spot, I was feeling like a bit of a map reading, subway riding pro. I stomped around the streets of Soho ticking off all the stores I had promised myself I would check out then wandered the couple of blocks north to Bond Street and Happy Bones NYC. I managed to walk past the sandwich board outside twice (duh!) before realising that I needed to walk through a boutique eye-ware store

My effort to meet Henry for our interview started fairly typically for me. As per usual, I popped out of the dark subway only to spin around in circles trying to get my sense of direction.  I was yet to confidently walk up and out onto the street heading the way I was meant to.  Instead I would always stand with a virtual flashing arrow above my head screaming “Tourist!” while turning my map around in my hands. Probably accustomed to giving wayward New Zealanders easy to follow directions, Henry
