Stumbled across this site the other day, and have added it to my list of places to visit when looking for the perfect gift idea. A great variety of homewares and goodies at a wide range of prices. Actually, some of the prices seem a little odd to me – I'm pretty sure the replicate Eames Rocker shouldn't be $549 for example...! But anyway lots of great ideas in one place – I'll definitely be heading back to Rawspace this Christmas.

Mats Ottdal

This is a self-initiated conceptual hand-drawn typography project by Norwegian designer and illustrator Mats Ottdal. I love the colours he's chosen as much as everything else.

Clip Art

Found this recently in an online image library. It's just one of the many treasures to be found under the clip art banner. Who knew.

Bondi Beach House

I'm always telling people how lovely Kass's home is, and what an amazing eye she has for interior styling. I thought it was about time I shared some pics of her pretty little pad online. She took these photos as a bit of a keepsake, because she's (+ her man Matt + daughter Luca) on the move. Their 2nd floor art deco apartment is currently for sale – pass it on!!

Fancy joining the Boheem Team?

All good things must come to an end, or so they say. Bec's moving on at the end of the year: so we've begun the steady, careful hunt for a replacement. It's not going to be easy! But we're hoping that an oober-organised multitasking manager extraordinaire is out there, somewhere. If you think that you might just be that person, please check out the position on Seek to find out more.
