Rebecca Judd features One Two Tree in The Style School

We have super exciting news to share! One Two Tree has recently collaborated with Etsy Australia and lifestyle/fashion blogger Rebecca Judd for her blog, The Style School.

Etsy kindly flew us down to Melbourne to be a part of an episode of The Style School. The blog has done a series of interior design blog posts/episodes and we were lucky enough to be featured in one.

In one of their latest episodes titled Etsy Kids Bedroom, a few of our products can be seen. This particular episode shows viewers on how to decorate children’s bedrooms with some amazing locally made products from Etsy Australia (including us!).

The adorable wombat, crocodile and kangaroo from our Little Aussie Treasures collection made an appearance in the episode. Our animal friends were also joined by our Rainbow Set, which shared the spotlight with other beautiful products from Etsy.

Also featured in the episode was our Message Board. Rebecca had her 9×3 board customised with her own message: ‘Where the cool kids are’. Of course, you can personalise it anyway you want for your kids but who can argue with that one?

Rebecca’s stylist Aimee Tarulli suggested that by having a specific colour theme makes it harder for kids to enjoy their rooms as they get older. So having our Little Aussie Treasures in its natural wooden shade, like in the episode, is perfect for any age.

Another tip from the episode was to style the room an age bracket up. It keeps the room interesting, as it’s not too young or too cutesy. Keep your kiddo’s room young and fresh for years to come by having these cute ‘toys’ and decorations up on display.

hanging with art

With the arrival of our new 30cm Art Hanger, we thought we’d share our favourite wall hangings to inspire you with some visual goodness. Now available in three sizes: 30cm, 50cm and 70cm! You’re bound to find one that is the perfect fit for your art hanging needs.

Hang anything from your linen tea towels, wall weaves, kids masterpieces. From collages to photographic prints and more. The plywood and natural tan leather string provides the perfect canvas for showcasing your art in a clean and minimal style.

With the larger 50cm and 70cm Art Hangers, a fab trick we love is hanging two smaller pieces side by side. A great idea for collating your kid’s artworks or a mini-series of artworks.

It is oh so simple to swap and change artworks on a regular basis for a refreshed feel. The Art Hanger – simple in design, but so genius in nature.

Care instructions:
Here’s a little tip for framing a precious paper piece of art. Cut one strip of paper or card, fold in it half and sandwich the original between them, then place it inside the Art Hanger. Firstly, this protects the corners of the original and secondly, it provides a better grip for any of your lighter weight papers. This is also a good idea if you are framing any pastel work, or anything that could smudge the Art Hanger. Our Art Hangers are raw and naturally unstained. Therefore, it needs a little bit of care and attention.

little treasure

My Treasure Board

A little over a year ago I began developing ideas for things to decorate my son’s room with. I ended up designing what is now known as the My Treasure Board. It was named ‘treasure’ after all the little trinkets and prized possessions you could display upon it. But also as an ode to our beautiful island nation.

Where else in the world can you find such wide-open landscapes displaying such a contrast of rich colours and textures? Our land is one of a unique mixture of luscious bushland, sunburnt plains and white sandy beaches. Home to many animals that are found nowhere else in the world. And home to people of many different backgrounds, cultures, religions and histories.

Let’s never forget to protect our natural environments – on-land, and under the sea. Let’s never forget to respect and be kind to one another. This Australia Day, and every other day, let’s never forget to continually discover, appreciate and enjoy the simple pleasures and beauties of this treasured land.

There really is just something about Christmas…

Whether it’s time off with your loved ones, delicious feasting and community spirit or pressies given and received, we love it through and through.

Anyone who’s familiar with the One Two Tree story would know that it’s this wonderful time of year that inspired our journey into the small business world. We’re never ones for plantation chop-downs and cheap plastic destined for land fill. So we found ourselves stumped when searching for a beautifully designed, utilitarian and most of all eco friendly tree option for our first family Christmas. We donned our hard hats and decided to build our own, and have kept on building them ever since!

Minimal, sophisticated, neutral and luxe. The One Two Tree Christmas Tree has been our signature, Australian designed and made product for 4 years now.

That said, not a year has gone by without numerous requests for a large tree addition to the One Two Tree family. So, in 2015, those wishes have all come true!

This year at One Two Tree we present you with two gorgeous, sustainable wooden Christmas tree’s. Weighing in at 85cm and 150cm high, if you find you can’t choose, why not bring home both! We’ve built them to last you a life-time. Also to bring love and light to any corner of any room each and every Christmas season.

Stay tuned for more Christmas offerings from us! And whatever you do, we hope you give a little love to our planet this silly season. Whether it’s investing in well-made pieces and shunning plastic nasties, or recycling wrapping and shopping locally. Nothing’s ever too small to make an impact.

alpha prints launching at Life Instyle

We’ve been working overtime around here to get something brand new, fresh, up and running. And the big shock – it’s not wood-related at all! With a background in screen-printing and textiles, I loved the idea of developing a range of One Two Tree wall art. With the Life Instyle trade fair coming up, it was the perfect time to produce some work of our own to display with our popular Art Hanger. We managed to turn this project around in record time purely due to the incredible talent and hard work of our graphic design intern, James. And now, here we are! The new range is all about two of our biggest loves – alphabets and letters, and fun nautical vibes.

Alpha Prints by One Two Tree 4

 

 

I’m sure it’s clear by now how much we love our letters. As sign-making aficionados, we thought it only appropriate to do a range of gorgeously graphic alphabet prints and textiles. We’ve done A, B and C in a range of contrasting colours on the highest quality linen or 220GSM matt paper. PLUS the entire alphabet in a few striking colour-ways, so you can get a custom Alpha paper print.

Alpha Prints by One Two Tree

We’ve always been a pretty nautical-loving bunch in my household, often decorating with nautical accents for a fun, beachside-living look. Plus, with three boys in the house, sailors and pirates and captains are all the rage around here. We have this gorgeous vintage nautical flag at home that hangs in pride of place, which inspired our re-imagining of the nautical alphabet, bringing in the contemporary aesthetic of One Two Tree. Available on high quality linen or 230GSM matt paper, we’ve put together eight designs to suit everyone. From the monochrome modernist to the colour-pop contemporary. All with those ‘fun nautical vibes’ I mentioned. So, welcome to the family, brand-new wall candy. We hope you love it all, but might I say, we’re feeling pretty chuffed!

new product – my treasure board

my treasure baord2

I don’t know how often you stop to think about it, but there’s a definite beauty and aesthetic to the shape of our beloved land of Australia. I had never really considered it, until in a vintage store I came across an old teaspoon rack shaped in the same way. The silhouette really struck me.

I’d been looking for things to put up in my son’s room. A boy’s bedroom is a bit tricky, I think, when you don’t want to just overdose on prints. I figured an Australia shelf would fit him perfectly, and he could display his most cherished toys. You know, action heroes, matchbox cars and the like.

So I began to develop the My Treasure Board. ‘Treasure’ because of the prized possessions you’d display upon it, but also the idea of ‘national treasure’. I was building a love letter to our sunburnt country, One Two Tree style!

It took serious time to get it right. There’s a reason not many of those teaspoon racks included Tasmania, or used chains to do so! I wanted to include it without any added hardware, only wood. Also to be able to flat pack it and give the user a build-my-own experience, so it couldn’t get too complex. Eventually we got the shelves interlocking just right, so no one needs to feel left out.

Now I love that Ziggy knows what his birth country looks like, and he can easily point to Sydney, where we live. The natural wood grain finish is a beautiful backdrop to his colourful prized possessions, and his boys room wall candy is all sorted!

tin soldiers stand tall

Tin Soldiers

A great idea for decorating your One Two Tree is to either hang or place tin soldiers at either end of your branches. We have just slightly twisted our branches in pair’s to form a partial spiral. Without over crowding the tree we have placed a soldier on every second branch. The possibilities are endless. By the way we found our wooden Tin Soldiers at David Jones in the city for $7.99 each.
