Greetings from the land of Oz

We’ve just spent the last couple of weeks back in our hometown of Melbourne Australia, visiting family and friends and basking in its comfort and familiarity after a crazy 8 months adjusting to a whole new life in San Francisco!

Although the trip back was lacking in any Kangaroo sightings or Koala cuddles (to the disappointment of my team mates), I did manage to catch the Andy Warhol exhibit at the NGV, enjoy a treat at Gelato Messina, spend an hour in book heaven at the Metropolis Bookshop, delight in an exquisite Peking Duck feast, take a stroll down Gertrude and Brunswick streets for some boutique shopping, sample one of the new Adriano Zumbo Tim Tams, and make a few too many visits to Gorman!

If you ever visit Australia you’ll see that it has a rich and wonderful art and design culture with talented designers and brands producing vibrant and colorful work! I did my best to soak up as much as I could while we were there by visiting some of my favorite boutiques. In all honesty, there are simply too many gorgeous products to list! Here’s my attempt at rounding up just a few notables…

    I love how amazingly quirky these are! My room is so monochrome or else I would totally incorporate these whimsical cuties :)

    wow these are some great finds! I love the banana pin and the bead necklace- will definitely have to check out the artists’ sites. I always see that aussies have great style and are ahead of so many trends… I just wish it was easier to get the product! Maybe you and I can import some things into SF ;)?
