Its a new year and the Melissa Louise Etsy Roundup has a new look and feel. Still selecting a few of my favourite Etsy finds, I’m keeping them in the theme of colour combinations… This year I’m all about colour.
The new Etsy roundups are going to be a more refined selection of items you could incorporate into your home, an event or accessorize with. By me creating these colour combinations it may help guide with colour choices in and around your home, enjoy!

I am completely obsessed with Pantone. I love that each colour can stand on its own, is named and when paired can create magic. Their products are iconic and the PANTONE® name is known worldwide as the standard language for colour communication from designer to manufacturer to retailer to customer.
Pantone produces a wide range of products but a few of my favourites can be purchased locally with a lovely online store called Elephantshoe.
“Established in 2010 by us (Sam & James), Elephantshoe is a custom boutique Paperie, Branding and Styling Design Studio. Based in Johannesburg, South Africa, we don’t believe that a little latitude and longitude should get in the way of working with clients near and far, so drop us a mail and we’ll get straight back to you (minus that time difference thing).” – Elephantshoe
Here are a few of my Pantone favourites purchasable on their store- see them here.

I couldn’t decide on one single product in this store… I just love it all. Wallflower urban garden & home is a store based in the Salt River Arcade building in Salt River, number 376 Albert Road. Our studio is based in the same building and I cant resist popping into wallflower every now and again.
Below are a few photographs around their store.
The lanterns must be my favourite items in store.
How cute is that lassie dog succulent. He may feature in our studio shoot this weekend.
Visit them in store to see beautiful and new products.

While trawling the internet, as one does, I came across this beautifully deigned yet simple and slightly futuristic looking copper lamp. So in keeping with my love for copper today’s product crush is the Zwei21 Interioricity Lamp.
We often take electricity for granted, because it’s invisible and intangible, but take a moment to consider how much it helps in our everyday lives. The Zwei21 Interioricity lamp has been designed in respect of electricity. Let’s face it, we really depend on it and hardly can survive without it…
Keeping this in mind, Jasmin Kastner and Marc Joschko, the industrial design duo behind Coburg, Germany-based Zwei21, have developed Interioricity lamp, a simple futuristic copper lamp combined with an extension cord.
Colored textile cables, plugs, lampshades and joints can be combined and placed in various constellations. The extension cord with the plug works as a cable storage on the wall. The setting can either consist of one single cable or there can derive up to three cables from the joint. The ends can be equipped with electric plugs or LED lamps. All lamps and plugs can be hung or placed on a desk. Metal frames hold the lampshades in position. Zwei21
