  • Process

    With a monopoly on my time for the last year I’ve struggled with the purpose of Vaughan Baker. As the business has changed, so too has it’s purpose, but perhaps I have not given this the attention it deserves. Knowing that it is changing, but not exploring those changes and questions I have found it …

  • An ‘original plum torte’

    The past few months, more than ever, we eat in more than we eat out.  If I reflect, it has probably taken me up until my 30th year to learn to slow down (and I still have a lot more learning to do). Furthermore, it’s probably taken having a child to really stop trying to …

  • Offline

    Three weeks ago my laptop stopped turning on – the result of an unfortunate incident with a cup of tea 6 months ago. For someone whose work is almost entirely executed ‘online’ this was at first a fairly challenging situation, taking away my ability to complete work (and make a living) from any place at any …

  • Writing as Ritual

    As we swing into the new year we have fresh energy and new beginnings on our mind, and so I thought I’d share one of my own intentions for the year ahead.  For the past 6 months or so I’ve been following the journey of Self Practice – a website (and excellent instagram account) created and curated …

  • Transitioning with grace

    There are many ideas currently turning over for Vaughan Baker, but my time and presence has turned towards motherhood – to nurturing and nourishing our daughter.

  • Winter / Sacred Spaces

    This Winter we have spent more time ‘hibernating’ than ever. While a large influence on this has been the fact we have a new little life within our lives, we are so appreciative of the beautiful change this slower pace of life has brought. The more time we have spent at home, the more it has become our own little …

  • Kontex Towels

    It was almost one year ago that I made the spontaneous decision to get on a plane and spend 5 nights in Japan looking for products, meeting with suppliers and observing the Japanese way of life. I deliberated on whether or not to go, and it was due to the unwavering support and encouragement of …

  • The Brion Vega Tomb by Carlo Scarpa

    When resources and time do not allow, a moment spent lingering over pictures from past adventures can evoke the same sense of wonder and excitement as a trip itself. Recently we found ourselves reminiscing over the travel we did last year through small towns in Northern Italy, Slovenia and Austria. – Our journey to the …

  • Speaking of a ‘sea change’

    We’ve had a lot of conversations recently with people wanting a change from life in the city. As life continues to speed up, the appeal to slow down flourishes. To have nature on your doorstep and the opportunity to buy and settle into a house of your own. Friends, baristas, colleagues and family have been speaking of charming towns about an …

  • A certain kind of joie de vivre

    ‘The Normal, Daily Things We Fall in Love With’ an interview of Maira Kalman by Krista Tippet at On Being. With an abundance of honest ideas and a refreshing outlook on finding the positive, this interview was by far the best podcast I listened to last year. Since I first heard it in September, I …

  • Pop Up Store / April 2017

    This being the first pop up store for Vaughan Baker, it was hard to have any expectations of what to expect in the three weeks we set up shop in Sydney.  Our time at The Old Clare was filled with so many lovely conversations with old and new friends. The space allowed us a place to meet …
