I love their work... I can just see that gorgeous garland spicing up my Christmas (cold) fireplace.

You've covered so many wonderful designers and I am still going through your archives bit by bit (I'm quite new to your site). I wouldn't like to say in case you've already been there!!! x

Michelle said...

I love the polli jewellary and already own a couple of their pieces and recently bought some to give as Christmas gifts! :)

bek said...

Hi Natalie ... please enter me in the draw!

I enjoy reading your blog ... and as a Real Living subscriber I love the heads up to the content I'll get to see in the mag.

I haven't got a specific request for content ... but sometimes I would like to know how I can purchase the work of your featured artists and it can be difficult to locate. I know your blog is more editorial than advertorial, but on occasion I would love to see a "click here to buy this stuff". :)

Actually, it's probably less about you and more about the artist's website.

Regardless ... thanks for a great blog!

Beth Pawlik said...

Polli have such beautiful things, what a gorgeous offering! I adore reading your interviews from so many creatives. They are very inspiring... I'd love to hear more about some foodies perhaps too, Cindy Saigon, Karen Martini... and artists Mirka Mora, Angela Brennan... just some that came to mind. Love your work though, thanks Natalie!

Gem said...

Oh great giveaway! I love the red the best. Will have a think about who I'd love to read about.

Bryanna said...

I absolutely love these and have a vision of using the yellow garland to decorate my new baby's nursery! Pia Jane Bjkerk--her beautiful blog is here: http://blog.piajanebijkerk.com/WordPress/--would be a great subject for Daily Imprint profile!

So charming! I love the Love Dove - what a fabulous idea :) Thanks for offering this wonderful giveaway..

Karen said...

Polli Shop is fantastic as are the holiday dec items!

Jossie said...

Love their jewellery and wearing one of their necklaces right now! As for interviews - Katie Quinn from whatkatieate - her food styling is to die for and her recipes out of this world. Joanna Goddard at a Cup of Jo - has great style and wit and her following is enormous - she has set a benchmark for blogging - and is a honey as well. And of course - Belinda from The happy home - another one with huge talent and great style. There's 3 interviews i would love to read!!!!!!

Pinecone Camp said...

Australian designers are so lucky to have someone like you to promote them. There are so many talented designers in Australia. I still love the people behind Zaishu - I bought one of those stools a few years back. Have you ever written about them?
Now, about these adorable garlands - modern, eco-friendly and unique. Perfect combo!

Wolfiephilia said...

I Love these decorations! :)

Toni from Brisbane said...

I'd love to win. These would look perfect on my Brisbane mantle. The Polli website and stuff is great

Michael said...

The red ones are great, perfect for Christmas. I'd like to read about Melbourne people and finds!

ltaylor said...

Beautiful decorations. Daily Imprint is such a wonderful inspiring way to start the day. I'd love to read about more Queensland designers. Someone like KT Doyle (wallpaper) or Jason Bird (luxxbox)

Felicity said...

The little "Love Doves" are so cute! Thanks for the giveaway.

Maria said...

Polli's shop is lovely - thanks for sharing. Could be dangerous for the purse though!

I'd love to see you highlight an inspirational reader of your blog? Just for something different :)

Mage said...

That decoration kit would be perfect for my wreath design in our main door! A couple of greens, golds and red is in for the season.

Gorgeous, elegant and covetable Polli.

Boydie18 said...

Thanks for all the amazing, inspiring content on your blog!! I'm developing a keen interest in interior design and slowly building up regular sites to check and gain ideas from and yours continues to be top of my list. Polli has some beautiful pieces and I adore the Christmas decorations - thanks for featuring them!

Sarah said...

I don't think I could add a suggestion as to who I'd like to see next as I love the surprise of discovering my new favourite 'crushes' on your site!

Polli's take on the christmas decorations is perfect! May be the only decorations going up in my house this year.

helena said...

Thanks for the daily insight.. into the lives of so many amazing & gifted people.
These are some pretty adorable girls too: www.marthagoesgreen.com.au

Natalie Walton said...

Bek - I always try to link back to the artist's websites or the galleries that represent them. There are one or two artists who don't have either of these and in future I'll ask if they're happy for some sort of contact email or number to put on the post too.

Natalie Walton said...

Hi Beth,
Yes, foodies... I've done one or two in the past but I wonder if that's a whole other blog! LOVE the Mirka Mora suggestion. Will chase that up.

Belinda Graham from The Happy Home Blog:

Joanna Goddard from A Cup Of Jo:

Enjoy!

Natalie Walton said...

Hey Janis,

Yes, I actually have interviewed Zaishu (as a sad coincidence at the same time as I received your comment I learnt that they are no longer going to make the stools. they're off onto other projects. For Matthew, that's Japan to do some photography).

Here's the interview:

Natalie Walton said...

Hi Lauren, Of course, I'd love to profile more Queenslanders. Thanks for your suggestions... and keep them coming.

Best
Natalie

Natalie Walton said...

Helena - thanks for the tip on Martha Goes Green!!!

Natalie Walton said...

Hi everyone,

Thanks so much for your comments, and suggestions for the blog. I was a little surprised how many requests I got for interviews I've already run. So I'm going to try to have a link to every interview (if they'll fit! - there are almost 400 of them) under the interview highlights section.

It's never too late to let me know how you'd like to read about - so comment away, or email me natalie[at]nataliewalton.com.

Natalie Walton said...

Paula - can you please contact me with your postal address and daytime phone number I can organise delivery of your prize. Thanks!
Natalie
