Stay and Wander

Part 3 of our Sensory First Aid Kit for these socially isolating times is a visual feast. When we’re not meditating to stay calm and grounded, we’re keeping our spirits up by binging on botanical and artistic endeavours.

Tour Yves Saint Laurent and Pierre Berge’s garden, Jardin Majorelle in Marrakech, narrated by Madison Cox, the garden designer they turned to for help.

Head north and enjoy the light, colour and texture of Claude Monet’s garden.

Venture further and slink off to exotic pockets of the world with the fabulous Prior Club. Enjoy their vibrant, authentic and informative travel essays and start to plan your post-Corona holiday!

Every day at dusk, accompanied by a generous G&T, we reconnect with Australia’s landscape by lighting our native scented candles in each room of the house. Add to your daily rituals, go for a wander and bring Tasmania’s pristine wilderness into your home.

Art gives us hope in these isolating times. To understand why, read Alain De Botton’s essay here.

Take a 15 minute art class and learn how primitiveness and playfulness led to one of the most important artistic developments in the 20th century, Picasso and cubism.

We collaborated with the National Gallery of Victoria and Australian multi-Archibald winning artist Del Kathryn Barton. We developed a scented candle that was a biographical tribute to Del in connection with her recent show at the NGV, “The Highway is a Disco”.
