You know that one friend who’s always posting stunning photos of her home, and you sit there with thoughts racing. ‘How do they do that? My home would never look like that in a million years.’ ‘Where does she find all these unique pieces from?’ ‘How the hell do her walls stay white?’ are just a few of the million questions running through your mind at a million miles an hour until you fall into a sobbing mess on your (slightly) stained couch.
Well don’t fret just yet, young wanna-be designer, because we have the 5 of the best homeware steals that will up your home’s style factor without breaking the bank, thanks to our friends at Design Revival.
Resin Tableware | $25 – $89
Impress the room at your next BBQ or party with these seriously stylish resin bowls that look almost as good filled to the brim with salads and other treats as they do empty.
Seen in the below photo are the three different finishes available at Design Revival. There’s the black marble-look design, white with black paint splats, and plain white with marbling. Go with matching big bowls, platters and salad servers, or mix and match as you like. Ideal for families and those who entertain frequently.
Villa and Stone Candles | $55
These gorgeous Villa and Stone candles are sourced from Bronte, NSW. Made from Scandinavian blown glass, they’re the perfect gift for anyone who appreciates beautiful things. Once the candle has been finished, the glass container can be used as a dinner or scotch glass, with instructions inside on how to remove all the wax, it’s the gift that keeps on giving.
The leather around the outside and metal feature piece emblazoned with ‘Villa and Stone’ is the perfect addition to take this piece from ordinary to unique. Coming in a range of three colours in one size, they’re perfect as gifts, styling pieces or to jazz up your bathroom.
Black Marble Cheeseboard | $38
Make your cheese and wine nights a little bit more fancy. With a timber inlay in the shape of a ‘Y’, this is no ordinary cheeseboard. The black marble is not only a beautiful contrast to the light timber, but will mean you can keep this intact for far longer than your regular wooden cheeseboard.
At only $38, it’s pretty much a steal. Ideal for those who love accompanying their wine nights with cheese or to use as a styling piece.
Pod Bowls | $60 (sml) & $100 (lrg)
These pod bowls are probably the most interesting-looking things on the list, with the shape being inspired by the shape of a seed pod. A matte white finish on the outside and a glossy grey finish on the inside just adds to the uniqueness.
Coming in two sizes, it would get wonderful use in an entry as a place to throw your keys, or just as a decorative piece in the kitchen.
Mango Wood Servingware | $60 – $77
A fantastic sustainable alternative to hardwood, this mango wood timber servingware is ideal for those nights when you just need to impress. The dark emerald green glaze of the inside complements the light finish of the timber in a way that is not often seen in homewares.
These are pieces you want to use to make a statement. Paired with grey, green and white tones in your styling, these pieces will really pop.
If you love these pieces but aren’t sure how they’d fit in your home, book a Design Revival consult. They can come to you, or you can head into the studio. Assisting with everything from restyling your kitchen, to helping remodel your bathroom, they can help you achieve what you’ve been waiting for.
While they follow the latest trends, they love breaking rules. Don’t conform to a trend or style; bring in magazine clippings, photos or even your Pinterest board, and they’ll help you figure out your own personal style rather than being a cookie cutter replica of that spread you saw in Home Beautiful.
With most of their suppliers hailing from Sydney or Melbourne, they love to support Australian talent. They even stock a few local artists’ work in their studio, so if you’re looking for a bit of local talent to jazz up your lounge room, you know where to head.
