Saltbush Avenue

Saltbush Avenue is my baby! It all began in 2013 as a blog about stylishly updating my mid-century-modest home (yes – modest) and then grew into a passion project of creating home decor using beautifully tactile materials. I design + make every product myself in my Hobart home or at the local TasTAFE letterpress studio. That, and designing every last bit of labelling.

As I find myself caught between the US and Australia, calling both of them “home” while constantly feeling like an outside observer no matter where I go…. I’m fascinated by the homes that people create for themselves, and all the regional quirks that make each one feel comfortable and familiar.

The name Saltbush Avenue is meant to evoke that sense of familiar Australian suburbia, that sense of place.
