THE quintessential MAGAZINE is a subscription only free online magazine.
In this edition, we celebrate all that is genuine, traditional and emotive this festive season. We embrace the beauty and character of vintage treasures that evoke memories of a time gone by in our 'A Christmas Past' story, celebrate the art of bread and pastry making this holiday season with an award-winning French artisan baker and get the low-down from New York on all things decorative.
Here at THE quintessential MAGAZINE, we thought we would feature the oncoming Australian spring with a petal-strewn celebration of all things floral. We embrace the art and beauty of flowers and reclaimed furniture, and head to the UK and take time to chat with famed London-based florist and stylist Nikki Tibbles in her flagship Pimlico London store, Wild at Heart. Enjoy!
Disembodied dolls’ heads, obscure antiques and portraits with eyes that follow you around the room: our Curios & Oddities edition of THE quintessential MAGAZINE is a little left of center, sideshow alley meets 1910 carnival! Step right up, welcome to edition 4! It’s nice to see you here again ...
In this edition we celebrate collections – the grouping together of well-loved objects from the practical to the sculptural – and explore how they have the ability to transform our homes and our lives. Here at quintessential duckeggBLUE, this feature story sums up everything we love about collecting: nothing is ever too quirky! We hope that our stunning images and real stories about real people, and their covetable collections inspire you.
For all involved in the making and crafting of this edition, it has been a crazy two months of photo shoots, styling, writing, video editing – general creative madness with the sole purpose of sharing what we love most.
