Atypical Type A - Obsess & Inspire Inaluxe

You should know by now that I’m a sucker for brightly coloured retro patterns, so it should come as no surprise that I was immediately taken by the work of Inaluxe. Founded in Melbourne in 2006 by Kristina Sostarko, Inaluxe produces mixed-media collages to make into art prints and stationery.

It’s enough to make me want to dust off my gouache set.

Pick & Choose

It’s T minus one month here at wedding central which means it’s time to get into the nitty gritty stage of planning, like the ring “pillow” I whipped up (inverted commas because I’m using that term loosely). This innocent sounding item is in fact worst offender for the it’s-a-wedding-so-of-course-you-want-white-satin-and-lace mentality. Happily (and thanks largely to Etsy) there are now some beautiful and original alternatives to fit your style.

Atypical Type A - ring pillows

1. Pink Frosting  2. Soul’s Bliss  3. Floral Designs by Lee  4. Paloma’s Nest  5. Estilo Weddings  6. Bragging Bags  7. Bean Sprout  8. Eleen  9. Giggle Room  10. Dear Jes

The elegant ceramic dish from Paloma’s Nest wins my vote this week because it won’t leave you wondering after the wedding, “What on earth am I going to do with this?”. It will easily transition to being a stylish and understated keepsake in your family home.

It came as no surprise to me that the wedding of Gabrielle (of Mary & Gabrielle Events) to Jarrod was going to be one to remember. It was held at the delightful Glen Ewin Estate with all of these beautiful and thoughtful details captured by photographer Shona Henderson.

I simply love how they were not afraid to do the unexpected if it meant it was a more genuine reflection of them.

Most importantly, doesn’t it look like it was such a blast?
