Get inspired with easy, modern, Scandinavian inspired DIY ideas and free resources
Have you got a flower that reminds you of your childhood?
It’s the hibiscus.
My mum and dad have these in their garden, and I remember, as a kid, seeing just one perfect flower in a cup, on the table or the kitchen windowsill. Dad would stop me and say…” Look how perfect it is, isn’t it beautiful?”
He still does today.
As I went for my walk the other morning, I saw this huge hibiscus bush and it reminded me of them.
Such a lovely thing, to just stop and smell the flowers. (Thanks Dad)
So, I took it as a sign that it had to go in my Yamba Scandi Collection.
And designed a piece called the Hibiscus.
Available as an Art Print and Throw Pillow.
You can view and purchase the pieces from the Yamba Scandi Collection here.
Some of my lovely readers may know we are in the process of building a new home and starting a new beginning in Yamba.
One of my dreams is to make and create.
I already do that I guess, my job is a graphic designer at Beyond Creative,
MY PASSION is to make and design products.
Since we’ve moved, I’ve started designing and creating a whole new collection inspired by our new surroundings and that black and white Scandinavian look called Yamba Scandi.
I’ve been making a stack of my Mozzie Coil Holders, and trying out new colours, I’ve found a way to make them lighter, (thanks Luka and Christie). They’ll be available in my shop soon too.
The Hibiscus print will be in one of our rooms, (I’m thinking, a big canvas over the couch) I can’t wait to put it up and show you what it looks like in our home.
Thanks again for the inspiration Dad.
Do you have a flower that reminds you of someone special?
I challenge you to stop and smell the flowers today, that remind you of someone, just for a minute. x
Happy weekend guys.
Live with Love,
Linking up with With Some Grace.
PS: On our house progress… I made a Flipagram showing where we are at, we have the frames and roof up!
BTW…I’m loving this song By Rihanna and Kayne West.

I love your Scandi stuff and the hibiscus is one of my faves. That flipagram is so ace, look how fast the house is coming along. Soon it will be more than a house, it will be a home! Bon weekend! xx
Thanks lovely, I just found Flipagram, it’s so easy to use, love it. I can’t wait to find a spot for this print. Have a great weekend gorgeous. x
Eeeek I loved the flipagram (and the tunes I love that song!) Your build is coming along so well, the roof line is going to look great I love that style! Bet it is getting realer now it is al taking shape. Hope the sun keeps shining so the build goes quick! x
Thanks Ashlea, it’s so cool watching a house get built, I never thought in my wildest dreams we would be doing this, I have to pinch myself everyday, me too on the rain front. x
Oh I love these hibiscus prints, and Yamba, thought I’ve not been there, I believe it’s amazing! Looking forward to following your progress x
