Carved vs. Non Carved Pumkins


Every year we are plagued with choice when it comes to how to decorate our pumpkins – but before beginning we must ask ourselves one fundamental question, to carve or not to carve? With an onslaught of creatives turning to the non-carve method over the traditional Jack O’ Lantern, and adorning pumpkins in paint, glitter, material and everything in-between. We can’t help but feel like they might be missing out on getting down and dirty with

And We’re Off – OIP Spring Racing Editorial


Iconic to the Melbourne Events Calendar, the Spring Racing Carnival offers more than just a day at the races. If you were to ask a group of people what they love about the event, it’s unlikely they’ll narrow it down to one thing. For some it might be ‘the race that stops a nation’, others could say fashion on the fields, and some will admit it’s just about the opportunity to get a little too

A Fashion Runway Birthday Party

Dressing Room_Dress Ups 16

Attempting to be secretive but getting caught red handed, or more appropriately – red lipped. I’m yet to meet someone who didn’t rummage through their mums clothes or makeup as a young girl.

That’s why I adore today’s birthday celebration designed by Shelley of Paper Face Party, who created

The Modern Dad – OIP Fathers Day Editorial


In recent years, many publications have taken it upon themselves to define the ‘modern man’. Listing trivial or insignificant acts a male can perfect to accomplish what acquits to modern masculinity.  While OIP don’t agree with these seemingly rubbish lists, studies have shown that the modern dad now takes on more household and parenting responsibilities than their predecessors. We think that is a dad worth celebrating. So with Father’s Day just a stone throw away, we’ve

Like ivy slowly infiltrating a building façade, interior design trends recurring creep into wedding concepts. What originated from the importance of texture over colour in home decor has resulted in awe inspiring installations of pure forestry that create depth and intricacy through accompanying greenery instead of florals. Wild and versatile vegetation, that when implemented correctly become capable of softening the rigid aesthetic of modern or urban industrial settings, creates the perfect accompaniment to rustic, woodland or
