Black on Black

We love colour obviously, (hello the majority of our MintSix products!) but we're also seriously obsessed with black. Who isn't though, right? 

Black favourites from MintSix

1. Standard Black Juju Hat: $650 2. Set of five Lotus Bowls: $150 3. B&W Moroccan Pouffe: $199 4.Black Macrame Wall Hanger: $250 5. B&W Skinny Zig-Zag Cushion: $59.95
I simply had to include two collages of this incredibly stylish lady, Christine Centenera. In my humble opinion, no one does black better than her.

Christine is the Senior Fashion Editor of Australian Vogue and she never seems to put a foot wrong in the fashion department. You can check out more pics of Christine on her blog for Vogue here
Oh, how I would love to delve into her shoe wardrobe, and the rest of her closet of course! She's always wearing an incredible pair of shoes.

Love the diamond lights by Eric Therner and the black peacock chair is amazing, I've been trying to track one down for a while now but have had no luck thus far getting one that is in good condition and doesn't cost a fortune.

Since I started using washi tape quite a while ago (seen in the above pic in stripes and spots) I simply can't get enough of it. I have used it for so many things, from disguising ugly lighting cords, around the edge of picture frames, to mark out hopscotch for my kiddies on the floor and of course for sticking all sorts of things onto my walls. It is removable and doesn't leave marks, so it's fantastic if you are renting or if you're just like me and move stuff around A-LOT! In New Zealand you can purchase some here or try Etsy which has a great range in a variety of colours and designs.


I have almost purchased these Acne Pistol boots so many times. It's quite ridiculous that I still don't own them after scouring the internet for the best deal for three years in a row! I do however own many similar pairs that have been at least half the price if not even less. I will however always covet 'the real deal' so maybe this year I will actually get them further than the 'cart'. Purchase here

  1. Loving all your selections. You should definitely treat yourself to those boots. I want some peep toes ankle boots like Christine is wearing in her last pic. x

    1. Thanks Vic! Whilst buying some jeans the other day I stumbled upon these peep toe ankle boots for £35 on sale at River Island in the UK. With only £10 postage to NZ it's not a bad deal for a pair of boots! Not quite as amazing as Christine's beauties and may not be what you're after but check them out just in case. x

    1. Hi Deb! I know, such a tricky decision but they are both great so you can't go wrong! What colour wall will it be going on? Cheers, Talia

    2. Hi, white wall... So I guess you would suggest black, but I love white on white!!

    3. I also love white on white Deb and the texture of the Jujus make a statement regardless of the colour behind them. White walls are easy because you can go for any colour and it would look great!
