Everingham and Watson Now Online

By Benjamen Judd It’s always good news when one of your favourite boutique stores for bits and pieces opens up an online component. Particularly when that store normally operates as a pop-up store around Brisbane. Which is what Everingham and Watson were and now have done. Owners, Susie Everingham and Liz Watson, had already made […]

To Ellery and Back

By Benjamen Judd A quick survey around the QT office and we are quite shocked at the difference in ratios between Sydney born-and-bred-ers and those who moved to Sydney from ‘Elsewhere’. Every city has its own personal charm but Sydney really does have a magic all of its own that seems to attract people of […]

Tea With the Mister

By Benjamen Judd We consider ourselves quite the lucky bunch here in the QT offices. It’s not often you get a group of people working together who all share the same dorky sense of humour – like watching videos of baby animals sneezing, bad grammar in menus and sarcastic cartoons. However, like all offices, no […]

Pinterest is king.

By Sas Rowlands.   If you are like the rest of the world and are getting sick of facebook but can’t bring yourself to delete your page, Pinterest may be a great way to share out your online hours and dilute your FB stalking time. Pinterest is a cool site built on the premise of […]

Each of these carefully crafted combos is like a string of precious jewels; a harmonious series of treatments sequenced for a monumental bliss boost with serious therapeutic kudos. SKIN RESCUE (120 mins / $255) ritual Foot Bath + Warm Oil Back massage + signature Aloe wrap + […]

Ksubi or not to Ksubi

Ksubi or not Ksubi A lot of us remember the Sydney-based brand, Ksubi, back when it was still called Tsubi; when it was sold in only a handful of shops scattered throughout Darlinghurst and Paddington – some of us go as far back as when they were still selling stock out of the trunk of […]

Manly Designs

By Benjamen Judd Dads all over Australia have just celebrated Father’s Day and we can only imagine all the good things they got when they woke up. Like socks. And underwear. Some ‘fancy’ beer. If this was the list of things that your dad got, we hope you kept the receipts because we have gone […]

SMAX of something cool.

We at QT love a good home grown success story. We also love chicks with a great sense of style. We also love small businesses making good, so when we came across SMAX Design in Brisbane, and the two ladies who have created and curated this new company, we felt compelled to tell you about […]

Adore magazine blog share.

We love Adore Home Magazine, and wanted to share this awesome post from their blog. I’m so smitten with this adorable home office belonging to Kelle Howard of Habitat and Beyond blog. She’s a truly talented gal and her blog is personally one of my faves to read on a daily basis. We also actually featured Kelle’s home […]

Cloth, But Not Only That.

By Benjamen Judd Alright. This entry is a little indulgent but that’s ok. Whilst technically not designers themselves, the people at Cloth on William Street in Darlinghurst are some of the most creative bunch we have met in a long time. Some of us were lucky enough to head down to the launch of their […]

Zoom!

by Sas Rowlands. Take a spectacular scenic flight and discover the wonders of the Gold Coast from the sky. Enjoy the thrill of taking off from the glistening broadwater and soaring high above the ‘Glitter Strip’, over the high rises and along the fabulous beaches. Experience the white sands of Stradbroke Island and the opulence […]

Chronicles of Moody

By Benjamen Judd. Props where they’re due, Gareth Moody has a great name. It’s like an antidote to annoying salespeople, painful zealots or anyone else who attempts to try and win you over with an overly formal introduction. “Hello, Mr. Moody…” If he were a character from Mr. Men, he would be the one dressed […]

Turn the Tide

By Benjamen Judd. We recently had a meeting in the offices of our graphical designer friend about some pretty things we wanted made up for the hotel. What we were really impressed with was the table we were all sitting at. Turns out, it was designed by a man named George who is from Melbourne […]

There Once Was Some Clay From Kanimbla

By Benjamen Judd. Sometimes, when researching and finding out about new designers and artists, we get a little envious. Particularly those who just packed up and shipped themselves off to the countryside to live a life of creativity, simplicity and the sounds of birds over cups of warm tea. Like Helen Hay. Helen studied ceramics […]
