Maker-made home decor
We love to fill our home with art, craft, and decorations made by local makers. We invite you to join us for a walk around our place, having a look at the pieces that aren’t currently packed away.
In the kitchen
After we finished the bathrooms, we moved on to remodel the kitchen. One thing that we added was a set of shelves so that we can get some things off the benchtop, and also add some more character to the room.
We have gradually colonised the shelves, as I make things and as we buy more art and craft creations.
As well as my laser cut designs, we have doughnuts by Retro Tonic, a crocheted cactus by Goblin Market, and bowls by Aimee McLeod – Potter.
We really enjoy visiting markets when we don’t have stalls, too – nothing like being able to actually relax, rather than sprint around in the hope that you don’t lose any sales while you have a quick shop, yourself!
We also have other little incidental artworks, like this woven bowl by Niche Textile Studio, or this adorable little bird by Amy Cherie Art, purchased as a karma seed from the Petone Indoor Markets.
Copper Catkin in our kitchen
We love to get custom-printed Copper Catkin fabrics made into practical things – so we have teatowels from Roostery, below. You can also spot a plastic-bag holder by O Sew Crafty, repurposed to hold our soft plastic recycling now.
Used as a placemat, they also make my little work table into a fancy side-table.
These are the three designs that we have ordered. You can click on the image to shop on Roostery for that design, or click the button to shop for all our teatowel designs.
We also have bowl and tin covers from Snaxpax, and we ordered custom food pouches as gifts for the whole family last year.
