HOME TIME by Gorman

· Thursday November 21, 2013

There comes a time in one's life when decorating one's home with a combination of incongruous hard rubbish items and ironic 1970s prints picked up from the Salvos just doesn't cut it anymore. But because we're not all in the position to litter our abodes with Eames chairs and Ming Dynasty vases, it's nice to know Lisa Gorman is creating cheerful, high-quality items with her new HOME TIME collection – an offshoot of her much-loved Gorman label.

HOME TIME is a collaborative affair, and Lisa has carefully chosen an assortment of local craftspeople and designers to contribute items that reflect the Gorman aesthetic and, in some cases, assist her in bringing her own ideas to fruition. You can expect all of the elements you find in the clothing range: bright colours, gorgeous textures, fun prints and whimsical details. There are cosy mohair throws, eccentric ceramics from Connie Lichti, beautiful quilts from Miss Moresby, prints from Leah Bartholomew and hand-turned wooden candlesticks from Charlie Sandford. The bathroom is not neglected, with handmade soap from Barossa Valley company Monkeyscrub. AND there's even a colouring book for adults in the range, created by our personal faves Tin&Ed. With the exception of Kim Baise's mobiles (from California), each item is produced locally.

The HOME TIME range is available at selected Gorman stores (including a couple of special pop ups!), as well as online.
