It’s StyleMelbourne’s 7th Birthday today…and also its last. Time to break out the cake and Champagne for this dual occasion. I’m excited and, of course, a little bit wistful about it. The evolution of StyleMelbourne will be revealed very soon. Stay tuned to Instagram for the big reveal. While the new

Glamping with Art Series Hotels x St. Jeromes

We switched toasted marshmallows for wine and cheese, swapped bush-walking for painting in our pjs and (gratefully) favoured downy, double beds over sleeping bags. A towering cityscape proved a surprisingly idyllic substitute for the typical camp-side backdrop of river, beach or forest. When Art Series Hotels took over St. Jeromes The

A Vintner’s Feast at Dominique Portet

With a sun-drenched hilltop as its backdrop you could momentarily forget that Dominique Portet Winery’s vintner’s feast hasn’t transported guests to the French countryside of Alsace. A vintner or vigneron, is “somebody who works the land, works on the property, makes the wine on their property; it’s very much what we stand

Melbourne Spaces | Ruyi

As we’re in the midst of Lunar New Year celebrations, it thought it an apt time to take a look at some beautiful examples of modern Chinese-influenced design right here in Melbourne. Who knew it would be found in a dumpling house? Recently marking its first birthday, Ruyi consciously stands

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

Hooray for Marais | Melbourne Shopping

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. The ground floor is home to Givenchy, Celine, Balenciaga, Linda Farrow and covetable shoes.

Coming Soon | Marais | Retail Therapy

The Parisian-inspired emporium that is the Royal Arcade’s Marais is welcoming a little sister. Marais mark II is being touted as nothing less than “a portal into a mythical space”, taking up residence soon within a 19th century building on what we might now call the Paris end of Bourke

Melbourne Spaces: Kings Domain

There’s a little barbershop in Buenos Aires called Le Epoca, known for giving being the best straight-blade shaves around. As the oldest in the area they’ve had a lot of years to practice. A hint of this experience has now come to Melbourne, as acclaimed hair stylist Joey Scandizzo and
