Bohemian LivingRegular price $48.00 Save $-48.00
So we're guessing you share our love for bohemian, colourful living because you've landed on our site, right? Right. So we can probably also hazard a guess that you'll also love this book just as much as we do.
From the alluring imagery (seriously, we could spend at least a few minutes staring at each one) to the colourful pages that profile each home with deeply personal storytelling, this book is *exactly* what we want hanging around our coffee table. Returning to it over and over, whether it's for a pick-me-up dose of beauty or a touch of design inspiration, this one's a keeper.
Bohemian Living sidesteps the world of carefully constructed interior design and, instead, dives into the liberated and nonconformist atmosphere of offbeat beauty and artistic delights.
Robyn Lea is an incredible storyteller – both visually and in the written form. She understands the creative spirit and passionately documents its expression inside these pages. In every profile she traces the journey from unusual childhoods to artistic, often unorthodox, adult worlds.
Featuring twenty homes in Australia, Europe and the USA, Bohemian Living is an exhilarating visual deconstruction of what it means to live a truly authentic creative life.

NomadRegular price $33.00 Save $-33.00
Whether you're looking to make a change to where (or what) you call home, or you're simply looking for a delightfully heart-warming moment of escapism, Nomad is one of those books that gets you thinking... in the best possible way.
With pithy, intriguing interviews and a variety of stories that'll get you reframing what 'home' means to you, it's just the book to curl up with and dream.
A reclusive designer living in a custom tiny house in the middle of the Montana wilderness. A couple who traded their expensive Bay Area apartment for a slip at a nearby marina, where they live on a docked sailboat. A family of five who decided to simplify their lives by moving into a school bus, selling most of their possessions in the process.
Nomad features their stories, and many more. From vanlifers to boondockers, liveaboards to tiny-house dwellers, these freedom seekers have forged a new way of life for themselves – one that values experiences over things, is environmentally conscious, and is often more budget-friendly than their “rooted” lives ever were.
The ubiquity of the internet has ushered in a new era of connectivity that makes working from an Airstream beside a roaring river or running a photography business from a mountaintop a reality. It’s now possible to do whatever you want from wherever you want and still have a foothold in the world. This book shows you how, with tours of 26 unconventional homes and the people who live in them, plus all the information you need to make your own off-the-grid dream a reality.
There are chapters on bathroom and storage – two of the most challenging aspects of this lifestyle – plus a comprehensive guide to finding the right home, assessing the cost of renovation, handy products for small spaces, and indispensable resources (including sources for replacement RV parts, portable power solutions, tiny wood stoves, and much more).

SourdoughRegular price $22.00 Save $-22.00
If it wasn't for the old 'Rona' and spending the best part of this year at home, we can't say we would have even attempted bread-baking, let alone Sourdough. But baking bread has become one of those slow and enjoyable rituals we've taken up since this sorry and sordid tale begun... Each Sunday we sit around the dining table as a family to warm bread, fresh out of the oven, and laden each slice with homemade butter, marmalade or hazelnut chocolate spread. It's the small joys that make all the difference.
Sourdough is a traditional style of bread that is healthy and tastes delicious making it a favourite of artisan bakers. Sourdough takes patience, forethought and love to produce, and its rise in popularity is indicative of a greater shift towards a more mindful, considered way of living.
