A Happy Customer

It's always so nice to hear from customers after they have puchased an Ivy & Piper product - we often ship items out and wonder whose home they will be going into, which room they will sit in and how they will be loved.

It was certainly a nice surprise to receive these images from a lovely customer who bought our signature pink IvP monogram cushion! This is one of our personal favourites from the range!

And there are plenty of exciting new products coming soon - click here to sign up to our website for updates.

What a lovely idea

Our wonderful graphic designer and friend, Amy, created this special gift for Melanie and Stuart on the arrival of Penny. It was not only a beautiful design with all the favourite colours of Ivy & Piper, but also a very thoughtful and sentimental gift, one that they will have forever.

So simple yet so touching. An amazing idea to think about the next time one of your loved ones has a special occasion!

Colour Colour!

These images from the March edition of Vogue Australia are simply stunning. The combination of bright multicoloured stripes with the intense yellow silk flowers packs a real punch - not to mention the array of colour in the markets which serves as a gorgeous backdrop!

And the donkeys? Too cute!

A favourite colourway

Oh how we are loving this colour combination right now! Pink. And orange. There is something about these two hues together that seems so right. It's bold and fun and in Manuel Canovas' 'Bengale' toile it certainly gives an edge to a very traditional design.

Hope everyone has had a wonderful weekend!

Life's Special Moments

There is some wonderful news in the Ivy & Piper team. Melanie had a beautiful baby girl on 24 April 2011 (easter sunday) and we are all so proud, delighted and in love with this gorgeous little creature named Penelope Rose, especially her doting new parents! After some minor hiccups at the beginning, both mum and bub are doing well.

We wanted to take this moment to share this special news with you but also to wish Melanie, Stuart and Penelope a happy and healthy future. Birth is such a special event and a reminder that life is a blessing. Congratulations Mel and Stu!! xxx

PS (Yes that is Penny's little foot!)
