Great new products by Goldnbrown. Photography  - Justine Ellis.

OK so clearly most of Australia is having a public holiday today, and possibly NOT rushing to the laptop to check out their favourite blogs this morning.... but if you ARE tuning in for your daily design fix, then I am pleased to reward you with this fab and fittingly summery giveaway!

As mentioned yesterday, Goldnbrown is a gorgeous new local beach / homewares label - the joint project of two very driven local creative ladies, Andy Brown and Sass Goldsworthy.  You already KNOW these ladies are awesome because Andy shared her very beautiful HOUSE with us yesterday - so special!

Sass and Andy have worked incredibly hard over the past 18 months to design, manufacture and launch their first range of accessories and homewares.  The range currently consists of an extensive collection of cushions, towels, sun visors, beach bags, rugs, pouches and baby accessories created in eye-popping Indonesian Batik and Ikat textiles, each fabric unique and personally selected by Andy and Sass.

After 5 years living and working in Bali, Andy has re-kindled her love of Indonesian textiles and beach lifestyle a little closer to home, and this is perfectly epitomised in the Goldnbrown range.  The resulting product range is unmistakeably beach-inspired, but never twee, and authentically Indonesian yet bright and contemporary.  My FAVOURITE thing are the gorgeous towels - lined on one side with Batik (or striped) fabric, and finished off with a sweet pom pom trim, they are such a smart alternative to the usual fluffy beach towel!

Andy and Sass launched Goldbrown mid last year at Life in Style in Melbourne, and have been really encouraged by lots of supportive stockists already (listed here).  Of course as a fledgling business, you can never have too many stockist enquiries.. so do get in touch if you love their work!

As PROMISED Andy and Sass have also offered one lovely giveaway pack for one lucky TDF reader!

The giveaway package (pictured below) consists of -

- Turquoise batik cushion
- Green batik pom pom towel
- Goldnbrown signature beach bag
- accessories pouch in mandarin
- sun visor

To enter, simply leave a comment on this post by 10.00pm TOMORROW Friday Jan 27th - (I'm giving you an extra day because it seems only fair given the public holiday thing.)  A winner will be drawn at random and notified by email on Monday.

* UPDATE - Thank you everyone who left a comment, such an amazing response to these gorgeous products! The lucky winner of this Goldenbrown prize pack has been drawn at random, congratulations Jacinda! (comment #458) Thanks again to Andy and Sass!!

Massive thanks to Andy and Sass from Goldnbrown for the fab giveaway!  For a few shots of this beautiful product range in situ - don't forget to re-visit Andy's Blairgowrie home, and Lucy Young's ultra gorgeous pad in Geelong!

AND do make a little visit to the Goldnbrown website to learn a little more about this lovely local brand and see many more examples of their work!
