Peel back the drapes and enter the majestic and dizzying depths of the Market Bazaar. Glittering in the warm sunlight baskets of black pepper, cumin, turmeric, chilli and limes line the walkways as far as the eye can see...
Introducing our new Market Bazaar collection! Inspired by the souks and bazaars of Marakesh and Istanbul. Feasts of rich colours and scents, they are a party for the senses and we have tried to capture just a bit of that exotic glamour in the new collection.
It features stunning high polish artisan resin and recycled wood necklaces, earrings and bangles. The bright yet warm colours are perfect for this not-so-chilly Winter we are heading into. The artisan pieces have incredible textures and the designs are some of our favourites yet! Come along and discover for yourself...
The whole collection is online now so dive right in! xo RO
These little sculptural designs by artist Issac Salazar are really quite incredible. Taking old books and cutting and folding the pages to reveal simple words of wisdom out of the texture of the pages, we think they'd make a lovely decorative addition to any bookcase. And even more importantly, the make us SMILE!

Here's another talented artist we've been obsessing over of late...Elisandra - a self-taught Illustrator and artist based in Germany with a talent for using gorgeous textures in bright colours to create quirky illustrations. We especially love her prints featuring food - don't you think these could make a stunning cookbook!? That trifle certainly look good enough to eat...
To carry on with our design theme, we thought we'd share another of our favourite ways to spice up the home. Colourful stairs are a subtle yet effective way to bring colour into an otherwise (sometimes) boring space. There are so many ideas, from gradients to rainbows to patterns and prints, here are some of our fave ideas for making your stairs something to show off!
We sure are smitten with iconic artist Charley Harper's inexhaustible range of graphic animal illustrations!
A masterful designer of block colour, everything he does puts such a big smile on our faces we just couldn't keep them to ourselves! If you are an animal lover but aren't yet familiar with his work, do some digging - there's so many gorgeous treasures to find! Here are a few of the team's favourites!
Lately we've been feeling a little bit of a decorating itch. We know the studio is full of bright, colourful and crazy decorations - almost to it's capacity - but we need MORE! The only place left to explore is the roof and with an abundance of unique and eccentric lighting options out there we took a dive into the world of lighting. Take a look at some of our favourite fixtures from around the internet!
It's a pity that the roof is too low to accommodate any of these particular ideas, maybe in our dream studio!
There certainly are some darn cute DIYs floating around for Easter!
We think they'd be great for helping the little one's with portion control!
...And if that's not enough, here's a little more bunny-themed inspiration we've stumbled upon x
We hope you all have a safe and happy holiday! x Ruby Olive
Okay, so this might just be the cutest DIY project we have come across in a while (and thats saying something!). Who can resist some tiny, fluffly, brightly coloured fruit pom poms. We stumbled across this fabulous tutorial from Mr. Printables, one of our absolute favourite blogs and we just knew we'd be running to Lincraft for some neon wool! This one is particularly good for little ones too!
Check out some of the cute-as how to's below.
