Q&A

wolfgang and Rose Artist Rose Miller created Wolfgang and Rose as an avenue for her ‘creative sanity’ and to release the stresses of being a full time mum


“The Wolfgang and Rose Project is my own fun and creative way to release the daily stresses of being a full time mum.” Tell us a bit about your business? Wolfgang and Rose is made up of myself, Rose Miller, and my very faithful poodle muse Wolfgang. I am an Australian artist residing in Sydney, Australia. I guess my tagline would be “A busy mum who paints for creative sanity”. I’ve been painting for over 10 years and Wolfgang and Rose is a brand that I have developed apart from my previous creative works. These particular paintings are playful and bright, with a strong design element, created in the fine art of oil painting. How did you develop Wolfgang and Rose? I had worked successfully in the creative industry in the field of design and fine art for over a decade, eight of them had been in Europe, which was truly amazing. Having always worked from my home studio, I thought it would be easy to continue working from home while raising my first child, but after three stressful years of trying to balance both roles, I decided to put my artistic career on hold and raise my children full time until they were all of school age. When my youngest child was born last year, I felt that I really needed some kind of structured creative outlet. I couldn’t go back to full time work, or commit to exhibiting in commercial galleries, but I still wanted to produce art while being at home. That’s when I decided to create “The Wolfgang and Rose Project”, where I had challenged myself to complete a painting every few weeks and track my progress through my corresponding blog.

The hardest part of the challenge is actually finding the time to be creative, in contrast the actual painting part is relatively easy and straight forward! These paintings were never intended to be exhibited or for sale, but after a few months and a few paintings later, I gained a following through my blog and the opportunity to start selling my original paintings and prints online arose. These works are completely different from what I used to create in my previous artistic roles, but they are a true reflection of my current stage in life, hence the bright and playful themes. I paint to please myself, not for any gallery or art agency as I had done before. The Wolfgang and Rose Project is my own fun and creative way to release the daily stresses of being a full time mum, while also connecting to the outside world, as I am homebound most days of the week. What inspires you in your designs? My previous professional creative works were highly conceptual and even quite dark, so with my Wolfgang and Rose paintings I am totally free to create just for the sake of making something pretty without having to justify its purpose. I am now driven by colour, design and eye pleasing imagery. I am in happy place when I paint, so that is something that I want to be expressed in my artwork. I take inspiration form all types iconic design and fashion moments in history, mixing them up together to create a fresh contemporary palatable look. continued >

Wolfgang and Rose art prints inspired from fashion are available on Etsy.


“Lady Kat Loves Chevron� giclee art print of original oil painting by Rose Miller inspired by fashion. Prints are available staring at only $15. www.wolfgangandrose.com.au


How would you like to see your business expand? The Wolfgang and Rose Project was never meant to be a business, it was created as a form of stress release from the busy and chaotic life I lead as a full time Mum. I never expected it to blossom the way that it has, so I am truly grateful of the support and exposure that I have been given. It would be impossible to paint more than I do now, given the limited time I have to actually paint, so I am just happy to keep painting these works that make me feel good, and hopefully inspire others to be creative in any situation that they are in.

OUR STORE

Charlie and Rosie Treasured artworks from your children can now take centre stage in your living room or upon on their bed with Charlie and Rosie’s eco-friendly printed textiles

Co founder of Charlie and Rosie, Viriginia with her creative son, Charlie.


Tell us a little bit about your business Charlie and Rosie focuses on encouraging creativity and celebrating children’s art. We turn precious artwork into beautiful eco-friendly home wares using only the highest quality eco-friendly fabrics and printing processes. Our Artful and little designs combine precious artwork with vintage or individually selected fabric and trim. Tell us about yourself I am a mum of two (under three) a media director by trade, co founder of Charlie and Rosie and I live in West Footscray. A self confessed lover of cheeseburgers and passionate about providing inner west mums with part time work and minimising the impact on the environment. I work with my mum, Rosemary (Rosie) who is a qualified dressmaker with over forty years experience, and I have close to twenty years experience in advertising. Charlie and Rosie was born in 2012 soon after my son Charlie was born! “We cater to mums who are design and environmentally conscious. We believe in encouraging creativity as well as celebrating and capturing children’s artwork. So many precious pieces get lost or pushed to the back of the cupboard. We wanted to find a way to restore precious artwork and deliver it in a unique handmade solution” How did you develop your interest in homewares? I am not sure what the catalyst was but for as long as I can remember I have loved changing my living spaces to make them feel more like home (to me). When I was eight years old I asked my mum

“We believe in encouraging creativity as well as celebrating and capturing children’s artwork.” if we could pull up the carpet in my room to expose the floorboards!!! Where do you source your beautiful homewares products? And what is important to you when selecting these amazing products? I have always loved a cuppa and a good old fashioned home and lifestyle mag, but now I am more inclined to use the internet to get ideas. Pinterest is great love of mine now, and I can search different trends for hours. Great for triggering ideas and/or developing ideas that you were not quite sure how to execute and then store for later.

Can you give us some hot tips for styling and selecting furniture? There are actually no rules in my book. The less structure the better. Colour co-ordinating and only matching like with like works for some people but to me it feels a bit manufactured and less comfy or homely. My idea of a beautiful home is well lived in and full of things that the owner loves like artwork, handmade pieces of furniture and restored and op shop finds. Pieces for the home don’t have to be expensive to be comfy or to look great. A couple of great resources for advice here are; Home by Beci Orpin I love my room by Megan Morten Where do you shop for your homewares? Ikea, etsy, downthatlittlelane.com, Castle, Meizai, Adairs, op shops and Ebay to name a few continued >


“Little people create our designs, we just restore the artwork in beautiful ways.�

< continued from previous page What inspires you in your designs? Little people create our designs, we just restore the artwork in beautiful ways. What is your favourite trend at the moment? Locally handmade (Hahah) no surprises there! Seriously though our business was born from wanting to support local and take back some power to the people! There is real movement to avoid the generic mass produced brands and organisations for something more inspiring and genuine.

Global marketplaces like etsy means we can find and purchase unique and handmade things from our lounge rooms. We no longer have to settle or pay too much for items that are generic and poor quality. More and more this is enabling design conscious people to express themselves through the spaces they live in!! Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s so great and exciting Where can you be found?

TRIPOD FLOOR LAMP Sarah M Dorsey shows you how to create a copper tripod floor lap with amazing results

WHAT YOU NEED: 2x4 wood 1/2â&#x20AC;? copper plumbing pipe at your desired length 3 x copper end caps lamp shade lamp kit spray paint light globe

STEP ONE: Draw up a template where the holes need to be drilled and work out the angles you require prior to drilling. Using a cup, mark the circle around the holes and cut out with a jigsaw and sand down. Tip: A template is available on Sarah M Dorsey website. Paint first before assembling. Give a couple of even coats of black spray paint and let dry. STEP TWO: Slice a hole in one of the legs at the bottom (on the outside) to fit the wire through. Using the same leg drill a hole at the top (on the inside) for the wire come out.


STEP THREE: Thread wire through the leg and connect to the socket. Assemble the required elements from the lamp kit.

STEP FIVE: Polish the copper legs and attach your chosen lamp shade. Insert a light globe. Plug it in and enjoy!

DRIFTWOOD FRAMES Sarah M Dorsey shows you how to cover a few Ikea Ribba frames with a hobby board or poplar wood with stunning effect

DIY STEP ONE: Remove the glass from the frame and lightly sand back so glue sticks.

WHAT YOU NEED: Two Ikea Ribba frames, hobby board or poplar wood, wood glue, clamp and miter saw.

STEP TWO: Using a miter saw, we started in the corner, cutting the wood at a 45° angle. Put a little wood glue on the back and place in desired position. Repeat using straight cuts for the center, try to mix up the patterns on the wood for effect. STEP THREE: Clamp in place until the glue sets and thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s it! I decided to leave the inside edge of the frame black to contrast the white mat, but a fun pop of color would look great too!

clean design Moving from Melbourne to Italy was the inspiration behind the creation of Plyroom, a furniture business created by a husband and wife team

Totem Italiaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s signature precision cut joinery avoids metal joins altogether, ensuring the highest product integrity. Plyroom offers two of Totem Italiaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s dining tables that have unique proportions- comfortably fitting small spaces as well as large, and ensuring meals are an intimate affair, embracing the European way of dining.


Studio Desk and Square Chair. The Studio Desk strikes a balance of simple function, timeless style, and quality craft. Price $1345. www.plyroom.com.au

“Moving from a four-bed house in Australia to a twobed apartment in Italy taught me a thing or two about being smarter with space!”

Pictured above: Elise Heslop was inspired to create Plyroom after her family moved to Italy for a year. A Stool. Created to work comfortably with kitchen bench heights, the A is a comfortable and robust stool that is both decorative and practical in use. Price $415. www.plyroom.com.au

Tell us a little bit about your business Plyroom is an online store featuring a collection of beautifully crafted ply furniture, designed and made in Italy. Plyroom’s collaboration with prominent designers in Northern Italy brings a unique selection of furniture to Australia, inspired by flexibility and sustainability for every room in the home. Following a philosophy of affordable, beautifully designed furniture, Plyroom’s products represent an appreciation for honest materials and smart design, hallmarks of Italy’s reputation as a major player in the design world. How did you develop your interest in homewares? I’ve always loved experimenting with texture and

colour and moving things around at home (a lot!). A few years ago, my husband and I packed up our lives in Melbourne and moved with our two children to Italy for a year. Moving from a four-bed house in Australia to a two-bed apartment in Italy taught me a thing or two about being smarter with space! As we got to know more people and spend time in their homes, I began to see how intelligently small spaces were being used throughout the entire home, from the bedroom to the living room – maximising functionality without compromising quality or adding clutter. This was the inspiration for creating Plyroom. Where do you source your beautiful homewares products? And what is important


Above: Panca Bambina Plyroom Kids Bench and Storage. Price $395. Left: Hang On Coat Rack. Hang it with the coat rack that’s got your back. Price $275. www.plyroom.com.au Below: A4 Giallo. A functional storage option with clean lines and beautiful materials. Price $1599. Plyroom OH Bedside Table By Villa. The curved openings are a contemporary take on retro curves and reveal spacious compartments. Price $625. www.plyroom.com.au

to you when selecting these amazing products? All Plyroom products are sourced from small design firms that operate in Milan. Our partners have amazing stories behind their products. With its home in Milan and a heritage spanning almost 100 years, Villa unites traditional craftsmanship with modern technology in search for the unconventional. This artisan business has used its proprietary knowledge of shaping wood ‘along the grain’ to evolve from creating traditional small-scale furniture production and high-end percussion instruments to interior design pieces which marry modern design concepts and the simplicity of Japanese and Nordic style.

Milanese designer and architect Paolo Cogliati of Totem Italia has been an active member of the sustainable design movement in Italy for more than 25 years. His focus of ecology in design has seen his designs and projects appear in numerous publications, journals and exhibitions, with his ‘Canoa’ bed appearing at the world famous Pompidou Centre in Paris 2001. Using laser and computer technology, he creates precision cut pieces with a signature burnt edge. The result is high quality, structurally superior furniture without the use of metal bolts and screws. All his products are sourced from sustainable, responsibly managed European Birch forests, and proudly display their joins and form. continued >


The Kidsroom plywood range offers the best in original, contemporary and sustainable design for your child. The combination of natural materials and intelligent design creates a calming environment, maintains your childâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s connection with the environment and stimulates creative play. Plyroom beds are created using low VOC finishes and plywood sourced from responsibly managed European Birch forests. Price $995. www.plyroom.com.au


“I’ve always loved experimenting with texture and colour and moving things around at home (a lot!).”

Kids Dream Cloud Loft Bed Price $1450 < continued from previous page His furniture is designed to be essential and functional, and always made with quality craftsmanship. He has designed many products for children and kindergartens across Europe and is passionate about sustainable use of materials and production of furniture, supporting small communities in Bolivia with many of his projects. Can you give us some hot tips for styling and selecting furniture?  Colour is your friend, don’t be afraid of it. Build up from a base of natural materials such as wood and add color with soft furnishings, art and walls so that if your tastes change, you can move things around easily and with less expense.  Create ‘vignettes’ around your home of pieces that are special to you. Grouping similar coloured pieces with different heights & textures in groups of 3 or 5 can create interesting focal points in a room.  Mixing up styles and choosing pieces that ‘speak’ to you is a sure-fire way to enjoy the space you live in.  Don’t worry too much about making your home ‘perfect’, what’s important is that your home represents the people in it and your personality, but if you don’t know where to start, investing in an interior designer who can help crystallize your vision is a great first step. Where do you shop for your homewares? The Minimalist (the minimalist.com.au) with their ethos of not buying less but buying better, Plyroom is an obvious favorite and the flexibility of

the pieces appeals to my habit of moving furniture around regularly at home, Modern Times in Collingwood is also great as it has gorgeous mid century pieces and contemporary Australian art. What is your favourite trend at the moment? Texture and wood! It’s great to see natural materials such as stone and wood being incorporated in interiors with interesting textures such as felt, leather and metal. Naturally we are loving the Northern European style of blonde wood in interiors such as birch and beech. They are such versatile hues and complement so many decorating styles. Tell us about yourself A marketing professional in the field of financial services before making the move to Italy and creating Plyroom, Elise is mother to two gorgeous boys, admirer of gardens and veggie patches everywhere, passionate cook and self-confessed Italophile. Where can you be found? Clifton Hill and Melbourne’s inner north is my stomping ground. On the weekend, you might find me with my boys on a coastal walking track on the Mornington Peninsula or at my parents’ house for Sunday pasta! Is there anything else you would like to add about your business? What makes Plyroom different is that our products don’t use metal parts which can degrade the joints of furniture. Unique joinery is used that relies only on wooden joins, making our products extremely strong and long-lasting.
