I’m excited to announce a great new segment to the blog called “Creative Makers”. I come across an almost endless amount of inspirational and clever makers on Instagram and i thought it was about time i shared them with you. First up i have the super sewer Indri from Inkibabinki. Indri lives in Melbourne with her husband and two children, 4 and 1. After the birth of her first child she decided she would work from home. With a background in Interior Architecture, it just made sense for her to combine her love of sewing with childrens’ interiors. According to Indri, Inkibabinki is all about being fun, fresh and comfortable, while focusing on minimalistic design.

Indri began her business slowly in 2013. She was intitially focusing on childrens’ fashion but she eventually moved back to her roots as an interior architect and began to explore the world of kids’ interiors. Her monochrome cushions are bang on trend and bring an element of fun into kids spaces. Geometric grids and lines keep her designs minimal, which leaves plenty of room for imaginative play for the kids.

Inkibabinki’s etsy store is bursting with fun and fantasic cushions, clothing and even the custest little temporary tattoos for kids – all in contemporary black and white. And there’s no reason these fabulous monochrome cushions can’t be incorporated into grown up interiors too.

The contemporary black and white grids, slot in easily into already establised monochrome interiors. Inkibabinki has many happy customers sharing images of their children’s spaces on Instagram. Pop over to Inkibabinki’s IG account to check out more beautiful childrens’ spaces.

Meet Nikki from Brown Paper Lemon, a talented illustrator living on the Gold Coast, bringing her creations to life on beautiful pillowcases. I first came across Nikki playing #7vignettes on Instagram. Have you played before? It’s a fun Instagram game, hosted by the Jen Bishop from the Interiors Addict, where you are challenged to create little vignettes based on 7 themes or prompts.

Nikki’s vignettes always stand out in the feed. I found myself immediately drawn to her unique images and talent for drawing. Her crisp images often feature an illustration or two, making her vignettes completely original, impossible to replicate. You can check out Nikki’s Instagram feed here. Seriously, this girl has talent! Just check out his gorgeous costume, Max from Where the Wild Things Are, that she created for her son.

Instagram is a gold mine for locating fellow creatives and handmade artisans and Nikki is no exception. I get so excited when i see fellow creatives stepping up and developing their own businesses based on their passion. And this is exactly what Nikki has done!
