Steve’s slight obsession with all charts medical/scientific/anatomical can actually leave me a little creeped out. I mean what the hell is the chart below of? It’s colouring and detail are stunning, the German’s certainly get that right in the 60’s. However I was a little lost as to what it might actually be an illustration of?
There seems to be a never ending stream of ways to follow your favorite people! Given that we are visual people and love photos Empirical Style is on Instagram, of course. Occasionally when photographing new stock I’ll take a snap with the iPhone for followers to see first- and often buy before it gets to the website! Or there’s the odd shot of our family life.
At 8.30am every morning our postman arrives. And yes he knows us VERY well! We actually do most of our shopping online these days so we practice what we preach. Between my purchaces and Steve’s product sourcing, our two year old thinks the postman is a constant supplier of goodies.
Look at what arrived this week. A beautiful London Bus Scroll in electric yellow. Available in the shop soon I envy the persons wall that this will adorn.
I’m often taking snaps of new products on Instagram if you’d like to follow us: Empirical Style.
One of my favorite things about appearing in other design blogs is getting a sneak peek into to how customers see our products. The images they choose and how they put them together sometimes blows me away because I don’t see our products quite the same way.
I loved this recent post from All Things Style. Lisa compiled all our most colourful pendants for an electric burst of neon!
The Melbourne winter is slowly coming to an end. Slowly being the operative word- it’s been a long one!
This winter we headed a few hours flight from Australia to Vanuatu. Travelling with three other families that live in different states we thought the best way to see each other was to have a family friendly holiday together. Eight adults, four kids under four and two in uetero headed to a house right on the beach in the pacific. Thanks to Fil who documented the events so I didn’t even pull out my camera.
I followed Amanda Dell a few years ago when she did Vintage November- the personal challenge to wear a different vintage dresses everyday for a month. Wow what a wardrobe! So I’m pretty excited by the creativity of Scarf September this month!
We are a big bulb mad here. All kinds of shapes and sizes, warm to cool, modern to vintage. If you are looking for the perfect bulb, I’m pretty certain Steve would be able to find it for you.
The edison bulbs are hugely popular in New York where we first saw them years ago. Here in Australia they are steadily increasing in popularity and are popping up in many a cool bar or restaurant fit out.
Having lived with them for years and in every room when the sun goes down i still never tire of their beautiful golden glow.
