Tickled Pink

We first met New Zealand designer, Helen M. Strevens, when we profiled her for our inaugural issue of STYLE.

To celebrate the opening weekend of the London Design Festival, Strevens has collaborated with Tektura to create her latest piece, “Pink Horse”

The larger-than-life origami horse was brought to life with wallpaper.

The fantastical sculpture was designed using a wallpaper called “topography”, inspired by geographic drawings that Strevens used when she made site plans as an architect.

“Pink Horse” will be displayed at Material Lab in Titchfield st, London until this Sunday.


Decorating with Rose Quartz

Whether you keep crystals and stones for aesthetic purposes or your truly believe in their power to promote wellness, there’s no denying their beauty.

You may have noticed the influx of delicate pinks into homes and decor over the past year. The popular colour was so inspirational, that Pantone named it one of their colours of 2016.

“As consumers seek mindfulness and well-being as an antidote to modern day stresses, welcoming colours that psychologically fulfill our yearning for reassurance and security are becoming more prominent,” the company explained in their announcement, adding that it’s “a symbolic colour selection; a colour snapshot of what we see taking place in our culture that serves as an expression of a mood and an attitude.”

Rose Quartz, associated with the stone of the same name, is believed to be attuned to the heart chakra, helping to heighten self esteem and improve the quality of your relationships, especially with loved ones. Modern crystal healers will speak of its powerful ability to anchor your consciousness and keep your heart full and open to love.

In ode to one of the colours of the year, we decided to collect some of our favourite pieces to bring a little tranquility into your home.
