New Moon Kantha Give Away... Soul Makes



SoulMakes started out as a little collaboration between two love birds, Mack and Trevor Mars. Inspired by our travels from coast to coast, we dreamt up a line of beautiful bohemian jewels, unique in design and 100% handmade. What started as a small collection has blossomed into a label that now offers gorgeous wears to adorn the body, as well as your home, carried in specialty stores across the world. 
We are so thrilled about our new House and Home line, which launched only a few short weeks ago and has seen such a wonderful response. Our home collection kicked off long ago with hand crafted dreamcatchers and slowly began to incorporate other unique and gorgeous wall hangings and ornaments, which pay tribute to our cosmic roots with materials like crystals, birch wood and feathers.
 The collection came off the walls and hit the dining room table with place mats and coasters, it landed on the couch with fluffy, cozy pillows and throw blankets and even entered the world of bath with our luxurious Turkish towels and you can only imagine what other goodies will be hitting the shop soon. We aren't done designing jewelry either and we like to think of our house wears as jewelry for the home! 

SoulMakes have been a sponsor of Moon to Moon for some time and I have been obsessed with their beautiful Jewellery,  so I was thrilled when Mack contacted me to let me know that Soul Makes was launching a Home Wares range...  Kantha quilts, dream catchers and Turkish Towels, whats not to love?

To celebrate the move into homewares, Soul Makes and Moon to Moon are teaming up to offer you a very special New Moon give away......One lucky Moon Goddess (or Moon Man) will win a one of hand made Indian Kantha throw and cushion...

All you have to do to be in with a chance of winning is visit Soul Makes and leave a comment below letting us know what you favorite item from the shop is... Simple!!
Extra entries will be given for tweets, facebook shares, pins and Instagram shares

Bar Cart Essentials

I love this Home bar with overhanging Star Lights

Home Bar
Bright and colourful Bar

Fully Stocked and ready to go

Vinyl and Booze :)

If like me you are a bit afraid of 'styling' your home then setting up a bar cart is a great place to start. You don't even have to have a dedicated bar cart, just a simple tray with a few bottles and a cocktail shaker will add instant edgy glamour and I think they always look put together.

If you wan to go one step further and get serious about your bar cart then luckily brands such as Hendrix Gin and The Bitter Truth not only make yummy alcohol but they also come in beautiful Victorian style packaging that looks great on the bar cart or just on your shelf!

My other favorite bar cart must haves....

Hendrix Gin
Amethyst Wine stopper by Brooklyn Thread
Long Wooden Stirrers by board and bread

The Home of... 3 Brooklyn Artists





"Though it somehow never feels cluttered, this space is filled with a miscellany of oddments accumulated over the course of the lives of its occupants—and each one has a story to tell: an Ikat textile adorns Wass’s bed, under the watchful eye of a flying pig (both acquired on trips to Bali); a handwoven belt bought in a Bolivian market hangs next to a ceramic necklace made by Wass’s grandmother; a one-armed lamp named “Hernani” stands guard over Ginsberg’s art; a yard sale of objects populates Wass’s bedside table—“vintage bracelets, a glass pendant that my mother made for me, striated rocks given to me by Bedouin friends while traveling in Jordan, a little tool for weaving yarn into a square cord, coins from various countries, shells from various beaches, a vintage umbrella sent from a friend in Australia…”—providing daily inspiration."

 This is the home of three Brooklyn Artists jewellery designer Laura Wass, Pepi Ginsberg (lead singer of the band Companion), and Lucy Childress (a photographer… and nurse).

The Moroccan Inspired home of.. Sybil and Dan









This fabulous Brooklyn home is owned by husband and wife Sybil and Dan (who own the people of tomorrow,) and their gorgeous little daughter. When renovating the 4 story property in Greenpoint, Brooklyn, the couple were inspired by Morocco and the French Caribbean. Juxtaposing earthy tones and exposed brickwork with fabulous neon paint and electric blue ceramics creates a creatively and visually stunning place that importantly, is also really fun and child friendly.

I love the little girls room in particular the gourd lampshade and thick reclaimed wood shelves. I am sure you would agree this would be an awesome house to grow up in!!
