Christmas Gift Wrap Inspiration

December 21st, 2012

A bit of extra thought into Christmas wrapping can make a gift that bit more special, Ive been scouring the web for some inspiration and put together a collection of my favourite idea's, I think its nice to do something unexpected, you dont have to stick to the standard red white and green. Im thinking of having a go at Pink and Silver potato stamped stars on brown kraft paper with cotton twine!

Bowerhouse Launch Celebration

December 20th, 2012

On Tuesday night we held a little soiree to celebrate the launch of Bowerhouse, It was a lovely evening to roll out the Bar Carts, toast the launch and connect with some Bowerhouse friends and followers. My place was transformed into a 'Festive Bowerhouse Spectacle', the temptation of our wares was too great for many guests who departed with armfuls of cushions, bags and placemats!

The gorgeous stylist Meghan Plowman came along and you can check out her lovely write up on the event on her Blog 'The Orchard' http://theorchard.id.au/2012/12/natalie-long-launches-new-homewares-label-bowerhouse/

Bowerhouse is Open for business!

December 13th, 2012

After many months of hard work, good times and yes, I will admit it, a plentiful supply of Gin & Tonic, I almost can't believe this day is here! I am so excited to introduce Bowerhouse to the world and I am honoured that you have found us.

Almost ten months ago I took a pretty big leap of faith and quit my job, with a dream of turning my passions into a future, the result is Bowerhouse.

The collection is inspired by this journey to do the things I love best... travelling, collecting and creating. I have travelled far and wide and worked with some very talented crafts people to create a range of homewares that I hope will inspire you, as I believe its important to surround ourselves in interesting, fun and beautiful spaces to bring joy to ourselves, our family and the people who come into our lives.

I welcome you to explore the site and check out the store, I hope you enjoy and I would really love to hear what you think, reply to this email with your comments or just to say hi - natalie@bowerhouse.com.au

I want to say a huge thanks to all the people who have supported me along the journey so far - friends, family and 'man' thanks so much for all the love! To the talented people I have had the chance to work with - Jody D'Arcy & Jo Carmichael for helping me to produce the amazing campaign images that brought my collection to life, William Buck for his photography genius in shooting my product shots and the very patient and extremely clever Moja Creative for producing a website for Bowerhouse that makes me smile every time I look at it, I feel so blessed!

Lastly thanks to YOU for your support, thanks for your 'likes' and 'subscribes' and thanks for visiting the site, I look forward to connecting with you soon!
