STYLE SESSIONS WITH: Blacklist Studio Prints
Young hearts do run free and the lovely, local and exceptionally creative design duo Jaynie and Nathan Johnson from Blacklist Studio Prints are proof of that! In this week's {Style Sessions With} Jaynie Johnson kindly share a little of her own design inspiration and some favourite eats, reads and loves on the blog. Oh and I am just a bit excited by the new range 'Young Hearts' that has just launched this week! 

How would you describe the Blacklist signature style? We are often referred to as 'coastal cool'....not sure about the cool part, but we are definitely a bit of a blend between coastal, industrial, functional and relaxed....we definitely don't take ourselves, or our spaces too seriously. 

What is the inspiration behind your to the sea rangeDefinitely the sea, travel, our friends and that crazy little thing called love. 

What one design feature would you like people to remember about your designs. The high quality finishes of leather and linen and the custom yardage designs we created. This range has also seen us release small runs of very limited edition screen prints we've printed in the studio. 

What's hot in Australian design right now? Neon seems to be everywhere. which is cool, but a bit too trendy for's nice to see that salvaged timbers are big, it's great for the earth. And I definitely think that monochromatic and pastels will be huge.  There is something so lovely about the softness of pastels mixed with the edgier look of a monochrome base.

Which designers/stylists send you weak at the knees? Definitely our dear friend Mr Jason Grant. He has his style nailed, and it is relaxed and uncluttered.  I love Sarah Ellison's work and the work of Akin....they blow my mind constantly.

What inspires you to get out of bed in the morning? My family....they are my everything....they are my full stop, comma, comma, no returns. 

If you could travel anywhere tomorrow where would it be? Bali...and then New York....and then back to Bali (can you tell we love Bali?)

Describe your perfect Sydney weekend? We are real homebodies so we love being at home, reading, painting, dancing, playing in the yard and walking down to our corner store for red frogs. We love to have friends over for Soup Sunday's. Nathan makes the best soups every Sunday. We also like to stroll up to the mall and the Sea....we definitely are easily pleased. 

EATING: We are a little obsessed with Reuben Hills', the 'not Reuben Reuben'
READING: 'French Children Don't Throw Food' (Jaynie) and  'Glimmer' (Nathan)
LOVING: Designing our next collection 'Young Hearts', & calendar count down for Bali....
BEST COFFEE: HAM & Grind when in Cronulla...
Huge thanks to Jaynie and Nathan for joining our {Style Sessions With...} It seems we have a shared love for Reuben Hills - the salted caramel milkshake is to die for, and HAM is my fav place for Friday coffees. The new 'Young Hearts' range launches this week (we will share on Aug 13), oh and considering I am heading to France with two little boys in a month, a copy of 'French Children Don't Throw Food' might come in handy! Check out the Blacklist Studio Prints online shop for the new range!
