Melbourne Spaces | Coombe – The Melba Estate

dd

I may have just found my new favourite place. After years of concealment Coombe is welcoming the public to peek behind its haphazard hedges. The estate was once home to opera darling Dame Nellie Melba, considered the most famous woman on Earth at the summit of her fame. Taking that

Melbourne Spaces | The Schaller Studio

The Schaller Studio

The season for Summer road trips is impending! If heading north of Melbourne, the place to lay your weary head after a day of wine-sipping and sight-seeing is The Schaller Studio. Art Series Hotel Group invited me to do that very thing at this project – one of their newest

New Kuwaii Boutique | Now Open | Melbourne

Kuwaii Melbourne

When one door closes, another is sure to open. Melbourne fashion aficionados were saddened to hear that retail destination Alice Euphemia was closing recently. But now we can all rejoice as designer Kristy Barber has just opened her second Kuwaii boutique, a first for the CBD. Following on from the

Marais‘ new second Melbourne boutique venture is intoxicatingly glossy. Somehow – from the DCG Design quartz chandelier that glows violet to their shiny hall of mirrors – the store makes it feel as if touching their lovely wares is welcome.

Melbourne Spaces: Timothy Oulton

Thoroughly British furniture designer Timothy Oulton has made his first foray into Melbourne in conjunction with Coco Republic. Having grown up on Enid Blyton’s Malory Towers books, I can see how his pieces speak to the imagined nostalgia of boarding school. There’s weathered leathers intended to be jumped upon against

Melbourne Spaces: A-Esque

Label whore? You can probably just go right ahead and ignore Amanda Briskin-Rettig’s latest venture. Founding the undeniably successful Mimco brand many moons ago, Amanda’s new label A-Esque is quite the antithesis to accessories that demand attention. Oh, you’ll still coo over supple Italian leathergoods but this time around her

Melbourne Spaces: North St. Botanical

North St. Botanical is not your typical florist. The new space founded by North St. Flowers’ Emily Bradbury is two brick rooms plus a backyard nursery filled with the expected, as well as slightly odd blooms. Terrariums by Lulu and Angel, exotic and carnivorous plants, tiny potted succulents and purple chillis

Melbourne Spaces: Swoon

Sandwiched between a haute perfumerie and an op-shop, Swoon seems right at home. Elgar & Lyle and Margery Daw designers Brahman Perera and Keegan Hunt have set up a shop devoted to emerging and under-the-radar fashion labels and homeware designers. Having literally raised the roof and revealed the archways within
