We have been obsessing over the shibori trend for sometime now, perfect for channelling our inner-boho and creating the feel of an endless summer. If you don’t know what shibori is… It’s a Japanese fabric dying using twisting, folding, binding & compressing in order to produce unique and beautiful patterns once dyed, often with indigo ink. The clever manipulation of fabric in this way creates patterns that look almost 3d!
There is something timeless & nostalgic about indigo…. guess it reminds us of our first pair of denim jeans, or long hot summers when the sky was as blue as indigo.
Our beautiful range of hand dyed hand made cushions come all the way from the USA made specially for Ses + Jen – The Store. Indulge in a little piece of this collection perfect in any setting …. We ADORE ours

This year’s Christmas theme was inspired by our favourite ‘For like Ever’ print, with its combo of soft peachy pink and red, it was a perfect twist on a traditional Christmas colour scheme. We’re all about working with what you’ve got and giving it a new twist. This year we decided to drape our copper lights around the art rather than the tree.
When it came to dressing the tree, which is a matt black – we knew we wanted to incorporate a natural element. After scouring the stores with no luck we decided to make our own decorations that tied in our peachy pink and copper theme. We bought 20 kaiserwood stars from Spotlight for about $3.50 each, a roll of copper beading wire and a tube of copper paint. The peachy pink was left over from our painted antler project earlier in the year.
After masking the stars through the centre, we painted two coats of metallic copper and peachy pink on one half of the stars. Once the paint was dry we removed the tape, then using a hot glue gun, attached the hooks made from the copper wire. These decorations could easily be made with any shape or paint colour, we love how the natural wood is still a feature.
