With more time spent indoors during the cooler months, it’s the perfect time to update your interior. If you can’t afford an entire overhaul, select a few key pieces to lift your space. Cushions, throws and décor accents are a quick and easy way to do this. We like the handmade Ruine Bird from Salt&Pepper. Paying homage to the Japanese art form of origami, the terracotta piece will be a talking point. Visit saltandpepper.com.au for
The Casita velvet square cushion, pictured in blue, from Kas will bring a touch of luxe to your living room or bedroom. It is available in eight colours. Visit kasaustralia.com.au for local stockists.
Another great piece to dress up your coffee table or shelves is the Tacio decorative vase from Kas. Crafted by hand in earthy terracotta, the hand-painted glaze contrasts beautifully against the natural base.
June is the perfect time to dress up your sofa with a soft throw. We like the hand-dyed smoke colour of the Aura throw. The vintage-inspired piece is stylishly sophisticated. It’s from Domayne.
