1 | I had my socks rocked off this week when I got my hands on this amazing trio of concrete candle holders from Melbourne company Sarai Homewares. Available in a range of colours - including neon - these three holders are made and set in recycled moulds, which is all rather environmentally friendly! The company also stocks my other love - cushions - and more!
If there's a homewares store that's not stocking neon decor at the moment, I certainly haven't come across it. This fantastic fad is trending hard and with good reason; it's a great way to inject some wow factor to an otherwise so-so colour scheme. Shall we have a look at some successful neon decorating ideas and where you can get them? Yes, we shall!
Confession time: I've lived in the Eastern Suburbs of Sydney for well over six years and prior to last weekend I had not been to The Norfolk. Even after its killer makeover in December 2010 (I know, cuff me and throw away the key). Plenty of people had told me how much I would love the beer garden there - and after sitting in it for a few hours recently, they weren't wrong. Its laid-back, mismatched retro vibe is right up my alley (as are the cocktails)!
I'd known for a long time - being an absolute stationery lover - that an expedition to Little Paper Lane in Sydney's Northern Beaches was going to be an awe-inspiring experience. I wasn't quite ready, though, for just how jaw-droppingly amazing it actually was (cue the love song!).
