Thought nautical was on the way out? Computer says no! Aussie stylist Tim Neve has just launched a sublime line of nautical-inspired lighting that'll have you channeling the Hamptons all over again.
OK, confession time: I've lived in the Eastern Suburbs of Sydney for over five years and prior to last week I had not step foot inside Live This at The Spot in Randwick. I know, the shame! The good news though, is that now that I've discovered this local gem, it's going to be a long summer of homewares purchasing (how much do I have to buy before the shame goes away?).
When I started the blog a year ago, the first store tour I did was Few and Far in Huskisson on Sydney's South Coast. It was awe-inspiring back then and still is now. I was back down the coast recently and popped in again to take in the beauty of this homewares haven and capture some of their new stock. It was, to state the obvious, all rather spectacular! On with the tour of this enchanting decor destination...
A few weeks back, I hit the road to Jervis Bay for the weekend in search of sun and sand (and a drop of Savvy B, of course). I knew all about Indigo Love prior to going as I had the pleasure of visiting this Huskisson store on my last trip down the South Coast of Sydney a year or so ago. This time was different; this time I had my camera in hand so I could snap the store in all its glory.
[caption id="attachment_3582" align="alignnone" width="640"] Achieving a coastal vibe is all about the right tone and texture[/caption]I have to be honest with you, Creatives; I have been into homes where I have seen things I cannot un-see. You know, sand in bottles, shells in jars, Gone Fishin' signs; all of the things that people thought you needed to create a coastal decor vibe. Thankfully, design therapy has taught me that you don't have to be so literal with your decor. If you're looking to channel a coastal vibe, it's simply a matter of using tone and texture - with a little accessorising - no sand in sight!
