Flux

Flux

Flux, n. The natural state. Our moods change. Our lives change. Our feelings for each other change. Our bearings change. The song changes. The air changes. The temperature of the shower changes. Accept this. We must accept this. It seems appropriate, given the arrival of autumn, to consider how we…

We ♥ Flowers

We ♥ Flowers

On Saturday afternoon a group of about 30 flower-lovin’ ladies got together in the divine setting of Mildred&Co (formerly a mechanic’s workshop, currently an event space and showroom for the most fabulous edit of gifts you’ll ever see, like, 4000 nice things) to sip bubbles, eat cake and create –…

The Sherwood

The Sherwood

Those who know me (Josie, Undone Editor) know one of my absolute favourite things in all the world is hotel rooms. Big, small, luxe, shabby, with or without views, as long as there’s clean sheets on the bed, there’s nothing I love more than locking the door on the world and…

Undone Interiors: Tur

Fe-Archia

Fe-Archia

In a nutshell: Fe-Archia is a record of collected thoughts, ideas and photographs. The idea came about in two parts: 1. I was living in the USA, had just discovered Netflix, and after a bout of binge-watching Mad Men (while on breaks from my split-shift waitressing job) I realised I…

The Sick Bag Song By Nick Cave

The Sick Bag Song By Nick Cave

On first hearing about The Sick Bag Song – a book and accompanying audio penned mid-flight on the back of sick bags – we were a little suspicious about it being an elaborate practical joke, the kind that Nick Cave just might play… If it’s not, we’re in for a bit…

Heart People

Heart People

Made even more wonderful by the fact that half of the duo is Rachel Rutt,…

People always ask me what I’m doing with my life. I tell them I have no idea, but I also have every idea, all at the same time. I know that there is a system, one which is institutionalised, where rules are meant to be kept and boxes to be…
