Well, what a weekend. It was non-stop from the second I landed on Friday night until Sunday night when I finally got home. The Melbourne trade fairs (, + ) are absolutely huge in comparison to the Sydney and Brisbane fairs. I really did need more than a weekend to explore the whole lot (I didn’t even make it to the shops! Gasp!). As it was I only made it through half of Life In Style and missed out on seeing lots of suppliers I’ve dealt with via email and would loved to have met. Oh well, there will be more fairs in September and again in February.
There were loads of pretty things to see, a few favourites of mine were (aka ), (finally met Keren, she’s delightful!), , (Jennifer always has the cutest stand!) and as always.
Who else made it to the fairs? What were your favourite stands?
I may have missed out on Decoration + Design but there’s three big trade fairs on this weekend in Melbourne: , & So I’m jumping on a plane tonight to head down for the weekend and check out all the new goodies from my suppliers and I’m armed with a list of places to visit for drinks and dinner! Who else is coming along??

I figured it was about time I shared some of the many e-decorating project I’ve been working on the last few weeks. I think the school holidays prompted some re-decorating because I’ve had four kid’s rooms in the last fortnight, normally it’s master bedrooms and lounge rooms! Here’s one little boy’s new grown up bedroom sneak peek…. Cute huh!
- Art Prints –
- Scotty Dog Lamp –
- Upholstered King Single Bed –

So right now I should be getting ready to jump on a plane to Melbourne for but I’ve been in bed with the flu since Monday night and am not feeling well enough to fly down for two days so I’ve had to cancel my trip. I had planned lots of fun things with and I was looking forward to seeing all my suppliers and their new season goodies but instead I’m in bed watching trashy TV and feeling sorry for myself.
Fingers crossed I’ll be better for the weekend so I can get outside for some fresh air and a change of scenery.
Oh and to all my lovely clients who have emailed enquiries the last few days, I’m not ignoring you, I will get back to all of you as soon as I’m back on my feet! And if you’ve left me a voicemail, I will call next week, I’ve lost my voice!
