Sydney suggestions?

I'm off to Sydney this week for a couple of days. (Thanks Freedom! I can't believe it's time for the new season's furniture launch already!) I plan to (window) shop till I drop. Last time I was in Sydney I blitzkrieged Surry Hills and Redfern. Vampt and Seasonal Concepts were stand outs but honestly you can't walk a block in these suburbs without finding a retail gem. Now I need suggestions for my next design hunt and gather. The Society Inc is on the books but number one is a visit to Sydney's hottest new shop Pure and General. Owned by Linda Gregoriou (her home sent the blogoshere into fits of jealousy) and managed by Cassandra Karinsky. Definitely can't wait to meet Cassandra at last! But I'm greedy. I need more suggestions. Shops, cafes, hole in the wall coffee, spill the beans so to speak!.

Lucy Fenton

Ever imagine what it would be like living in your favourite shop? Well if the wonderland of a store Fenton & Fenton is that shop then 33 Wattle Rd, Hawthorne is where you should be living. As one of a number of creatives asked to style a display apartment last year Lucy Fenton brought her shop to life in an otherwise boring cookie cutter apartment. Colourful, quirky, beautiful her apartment showcased all that her Prahan shop has come to stand for. And now her newly launched website brings her shop to life for those who can't walk through the doors. A must see gallery if you love colour with a touch of ethnic aesthetic, vintage with midcentury re-invented and the unexpected, always the unexpected. Love!

Barcelona home ... a tapas of a taste

Welcome to the lovely home of the Barcelona based design duo Australian digital artist George Angles and Spanish painter and designer Blanca Cases. Just a tantalising peek but after the jump you can take a wander through their Barcelona shop Lu Ink where Blanca says "we make the things that we love: paintings, cushions, trays, assorted things made of and on wood, textiles and lots of other cool things for the house." Perhaps if we ask really, really nicely Blanca and George will send us more photos of their house ;)

Quickie 1

The week is grinding on. I see the finish in sight. Just need to stop for a refreshing cuppa and what a cute place to stop. The Tabernacle Tearoom. Mark and Sally Bailey of Recycled Home and Simple Home fame. Oh and baileys home and garden at Whitecross Farm and online. Pass the teapot I need just one more before I head off to finish the week.
