PA­PER­PLAY­GROUND face­­per­play­ground What’s your idea of the per­fect din­ner party?

An in­ti­mate, ca­sual, sum­mery out­door soirée with nicely dimmed light­ing (but not so dark that you can’t see your food!) and great mu­sic to set the tone and am­bi­ence for the guests. Of course, the ta­ble set­ting would be a fo­cal point, and lit­tle de­tails such as name place­cards, nap­kins and dec­o­ra­tions make all the dif­fer­ence! In terms of cater­ing I love hav­ing lots of dif­fer­ent types of food on the ta­ble at one time (so cold and hot ta­pas along with some yummy asado would be my pre­ferred choice to serve) as there’s al­ways some­thing for ev­ery­one that way. Yummy, fruity bev­er­ages and a de­li­cious dessert com­pletes the night!

UN­EARTHED VINTAGE un­earthed­v­in­ What is your cur­rent favourite colour pal­ette?

I’m lov­ing white, indigo, brown, gold and green. This colour pal­ette can cur­rently be seen through­out the Un­earthed Vintage col­lec­tion and also in my own per­sonal wardrobe. I’m never sure what comes first, the wardrobe or the in­ven­tory, but I al­ways end up dress­ing like our new­est col­lec­tion. By set­ting an event with white linen fur­ni­ture with wooden trim, nat­u­ral wood and gold ac­cent ta­bles, indigo pil­lows and tex­tiles, and pops of green­ery that bring any set­ting to life, the colours com­bine per­fectly to trans­port guests to the breezy feel­ing of a serene sum­mer get­away at an up­scale re­sort.

ARTIST/IL­LUS­TRA­TOR mim­i­le­ What’s your favourite way to celebrate spring?

Cham­pagne (ob­vi­ously) and long walks in the bush with my dog, Jones.
