Panelling Perfection

Panelling would have to take the prize for my favourite architectural detail. I am in the process of having my formal lounge and dining room panelled in a similar circular design to this door.

The combination of the two shades of grey accentuating the detailing in these panelled walls is enough to make my heart skip a beat! Who says grey is dull?

Town & Country Style

The new Brooklyn Side Table from Town & Country Style

Check out the map of Paris drawn in chalk on the showroom wall. It doesn't get more creative than that.
The newly released Brooklyn range from Town & Country Style features washed grey oak timber. To view the entire range click on their website
The castors on the bottom are icing on the cake.

While down in Melbourne for Designex I caught up with Suzette the talented creator behind Town & Country Style. I'm sure you will agree that she has more style in the tip of her little finger then most people have in their entire body.

Melbourne, Shopping Heaven

Somers General Store on the Mornington Peninsula. I wanted to take the antler mirror home with me.

While wandering the streets of Melbourne on my recent Designex visit I came across this irresitable goodies store, il migliore on High St Armadale. The store is painted in hot pink and instantly catches your eye.

look how beautifully they wrapped my small purchase of chocolate dipped orange slices. It's so nice to see shopkeepers who clearly have a passion for their store and produce.
