You asked, we listened!

We asked each of our designers in our Sydney studio to choose their holy-grail, can’t-live-without reference books that they personally use for inspiration. Grab a pen, take notes, bookmark the page or etch it into your memory because we have curated the list to end all reference lists.

To make life that little bit sweeter, we have linked each book to their corresponding Amazon page so grabbing a copy for your own library is that much easier!

Regards: Aquarelles Botaniques – Vincent Jeannerot

“I always love to have a flick through ‘Regards’ to see all of it’s exquisite detail in it’s paintings, it’s beautiful botanicals and it’s great variety of inspiration. I love it’s contemporary take on traditional watercolour flowers and the way that it is beautifully presented – it even came in it’s own lovely fabric bag!”

Charis, Senior Designer

The Hermès Scarf: History & Mystique – Nadine Coleno (Thames & Hudson)

“I always go to pick up The Hermès Scarf because, I just love Hermès! Also, they can print up to 40 colours and their use of layout with their scarves adds a new dimension of inspiration!”

The Anatomy Of Colour: The Story Of Heritage Paints and Pigments – Patrick Baty (Thames & Hudson)

“The Anatomy Of Colour is one of my favourite go-to books when I’m looking for sophisticated colour palettes. This book has some gorgeous colours with lovely chalky tones as well as beautiful interiors with amazing patterns!”
