United Artworks

Need to freshen up those bare walls at home for the up and coming summer? Why not splash some serious colour on them with an abstract piece from United Artworks!

Since launching their online gallery in 2012 these guys have worked extensively with designers and property owners seeking contemporary wall art solutions that are design driven but easy on the budget too.

You can see why in today’s financial environment they have created a niche market that demands quality and value with out burning a hole in your back pocket. They have a vast range of art from a variety of Australian and international artists that are typically focused on seasonal interior trends. You will find a collection of contemporary, abstract and minimalist pieces in pastel tones or more bold dramatic brights so there is something that will appeal to everyones taste. United Artworks are currently on the hunt for some new talent so if your a budding artist yourself, now might be your chance to showcase your creative side.

A unique side to the online gallery is that they give you the buyer, the control to customize your purchase. The size and boarder choice are all your own, you can even submit a personal concept and one of their talented artists can bring it to life for you. I absolutely LOVE this idea.

Jump online UNITED ARTWORKS and have a look for yourself. I cant say selecting will be easy (I found it terribly hard)

A word of advice, Play with proportion – don’t be afraid to choose a large canvas (for big impact) and don’t be afraid to work with colour! As you can see, the featured piece Accente 2 certainly grabs your attention, Its bold and makes a huge statement. We have played around with it against raw materials today which really bought it to life. We were spoilt for choice though. My hubby recently worked on a renovation of an old power station that has been transformed into a one of a kind residence. Its the perfect balance between heritage an ultra modern construction. The owners have really thought every aspect of this home through and we were super grateful to be able to use this space to shot our artwork.

My personal faves are “Accente 2” ( as pictured) “Japanese garden”, I love the pastel tones in this piece and “Straits” reminds me of the relaxing by the sea. Seriously though each of the paintings are individual and incredibly unique, there are endless options.

Keep an eye out as United Artworks have an exciting collaboration for a series of prints with a television personality duo coming soon, exciting!!!

ARTHUR BEN AND BARROW FEATURE

 Recently I was approached by the talented writer of blog WWW.ARTHURBENANDBARROW.COM  Kymberly Plischke.

Her blog is dedicated to and promotes all things Tasmanian. It was an absolute honour to be contacted to be feature on her page for my business BROGAN KATE. She has been way to kind in the piece she has written and It goes without saying this girl has a way with words.

I have scrolled through and scanned some of her more recent blogs. Kymberly highlights some of the best places to visit, eat at and escape to in this beautiful place I get to call home. There is a vast range of features that appeal to a just about anyone and if your local or interstate I would certainly be jumping on her blog and checking what she has to say.

Thanks again Kym. You have been way to kind. xx

Based in the north of Tasmania is the gorgeous and talented entrepreneur Brogan Kate Howie-Wootten. Her blog Brogankate covers all things fashion, and her online store at www.brogankate.com focuses on beautiful, luxurious lingerie brands that look a million bucks, and with the brands Brogan has selected you’re guaranteed to feel amazing wearing them.

Brogankate began three years ago as a blog so Brogan could unleash some creative energy. That decision quickly gave her the opportunity to collaborate with various brands, featuring and styling their products in her posts. Six months later she had added an online shop to the site. She describes the business and her experiences growing the enterprise as a girl’s dream come true. Her passion and flair for fashion is evident.

Brogan utilizes social media to drive traffic to her site. I can highly recommend you visit (or maybe stalk) her beautifully crafted instagram feed at @brogankateintimates, and also her own account @brogankate. Her feeds are seriously well curated and her styling is inspiring. I wish I looked as good as her in casual weekend clothes! And don’t even get me started on how amazing she looks in her lingerie!! Incidentally all the images for this post were supplied by Brogan and are a taste of what you’ll see in her Instagram feeds and on the site.

Brogan does her research on every brand she stocks. If she wouldn’t wear it herself she doesn’t sell it. Her signature style is wire free bras, which is the style she herself prefers. Before opening the store she had difficulty finding beautiful, unique wireless bras to buy and so Brogankate was born out of necessity. Brogan has cleverly found a niche, and while her first love and experience lies in fashion, she has quickly adapted her skills.

Stock from Brogankate gets shipped worldwide but Brogan is grateful for her Tasmanian customer base. Her business may be online but she is dedicated to maintaining a personal element to her transactions. A handwritten note accompanies all purchases, and she offers ‘local pickup’ at the checkout, which means she gets to meet some of her local clientele.

Big developments are on the horizon for Brogankate. Brogan is working on her very own line of intimates under the Brogankate brand! If her success to date is anything to go by the Brogankate line is going to be phenomenal. Spring/Summer will also see the site stocked with new brands and lots of new styles.

I can’t wait to see what this talented, hardworking business woman will be offering us next.

The willow and wolf

Spring has sprung and the legs are out with a lil help of Ecococo tan.

Ripped denim shorts and the perfect high neck “just for now” tank from The Willow and Wolf boutique are my kind of outfit.

This tank is a great style to take you from day to night. Teamed back with an endless option of bottoms, your fave skinny jean, high waisted skirt or shorts.

Flats or heels this tops looks great dressed up or super casual. The classic high neck is classy and lends itself to any combo.

I know what I am like when it comes to black so it will certainly be getting a work out in my spring/summer wardrobe. This little beauty is a must have essential for the season ahead.
