Viola Loves is a monthly collection of three things we’re currently pining over, be it a skillfully crafted object, the travel destination of our dreams, an artist we can’t get enough of or a woman who has been inspiring us. This month, we explore beauty in brass, muted monotypes and rugged, romantic corners of Tasmania.
Aesop Brass Oil Burner
To truly unwind, we need to soothe all of the senses – not least of all the olfactory system. Imbuing your space with calming, gentle scents from oil burners is one of our favourite ways to bring relaxation into the bedroom. A bonus? This Henry Wilson-design brass burner from Aesop is also pretty easy on the eyes.
We’re constantly inspired by Renée’s art – her monotypes explore the relationship between people and the spaces, objects and designs with which they engage. Her paired back approach is influenced by Japanese woodblock printing, featuring muted tones and retrained composition that remind us that less is often so much more.
In case staying on your own private island doesn’t make you feel like you’re getting away from it all, how about your own private island in southern Tasmania, about as far from the rest of the world as you can get? A cozy house set amongst the raw, ethereal landscape of Australia’s island state is the perfect way to connect with nature and calm the mind.
