feather the nest

I am in the middle of changing the kids bedrooms around. I am hoping to move them into the same room soon. (When Patchy stops waking in the night, grrr :) Yes yes I am going to stick with blacks and whites as I find it hard to get away from them but I have decided to have a bit of fun. Add a pop of colour. Im thinking black and white as my base and add in colours such as primary colours- blue, yellow and red. There is one cushion that inspiring me to do this. Yes one cushion! That cushion being the Uimi Indiana cushion from New Zealands feather the nest. Would look very rad against our black and white bedding I think!



I was lucky enough to catch up with Portia one half of the creative duo behind feather the nest.

Tell us a little bit about feather the nest, Portia, and how it began.

When we discovered that we were expecting our first baby, we were part way through a major house renovation.  We quickly reworked our planned office into a nursery and I started searching for stylish, modern accessories to decorate our daughter's room with.  I found that the majority of items were readily available, but I couldn't find any cool modern organic bed linen (this was 2 years ago), so we started looking at options overseas and discovered Uimi and Goo Collection.  We launched feather the nest right after our daughter was born and bring Goo Collection's linen in NZ exclusively.  We've just been up to NYC earlier this year on a buying trip and we're heading to Asia in a few weeks, so we'll be continuing adding to and expanding our range.

And what is inspiring you right now?

I read a fair few interior and fashion magazines and blogs - favourite mags would be Your Home & Garden, Real Living, Inside Out and Vogue Living.  For blogs, it'd be Tiny Tribe Magazine, Studio Home, Juniors Design Blog, The Design Chaser, Cush & Nooks, Ses & Jen, Milo & Mitzy, Little Gatherer, LeeAnn Yare, Babyology, Mini Style Blog and Love & Ginger to name a few.  I can never keep up with my blog feed!  I am constantly in awe of the incredible interior and styling talent that is coming out of NZ.  I think that in general we've got a really down to earth, but well styled lifestyle.
