Tangent GC

We’ve had a hot and dry summer here in Sydney and the temperatures are still in their high 20’s. Although I try to look after my skin, the harsh climate does make it extra challenging. Needless to say, good skincare is essential throughout the year. I love discovering new skincare brands and it’s always a bonus if they are organic as well. Enter Tangent GC – a Swedish brand that focuses on organic skincare products, but also holistic garment care (from shoe brushes to laundry detergents). Beautiful, minimalist packaging and high quality product makes this brand stand out and has quickly become one of my daily favourites. As the name suggest, the Tulip range smells like a big bunch of tulips – and I can’t think of anything better!

These products were sent to me as a gift, but as always, all opinions are my own.

Nedre Foss

I discovered the Norwegian design company Nedre Foss a couple years ago and have loved their designs since. The notion of “The Century Object”, an object that will serve you for at least a hundred years, is in the core of the company and sits very well with my decorating philosophy as well. It also happens that the majestic cast iron candle holders “Ildhane” and “Glo” are designed by my favourite Norwegian designers Andersen & Voll. There’s something about cast iron that I love as a material. The heaviness makes it feel like a substantial object and fits any decorating style perfectly.

Sirkel” tealight holder is made from solid coloured glass. The intensity of the colour changes with the thickness of the glass. I love the way light shines through these tealight holders; they are beautiful on their own or grouped together. The colours are gorgeous and intense, something you can only achieve with a solid coloured glass.

Now that the days are getting shorter here in Sydney, I know I’ll be enjoying these candle holders every night. Thank you Nedre Foss for sending me these gifts. All opinions, as always, are my own.
