Nearly there...

Here's some shots of the latest space I have been working on. CoffeeHIT is the newest kid on the Melbourne coffee block. The focus is on making great coffee, using organic ingredients on the menu - just all good quality stuff - keeping it simple and bringing it to the 'burbs in Hawthorn.

CoffeeHIT, 81-83 Church St, Hawthorn opens Monday February 1.

The Red Store, Newstead.

The Red Store is a stylists dream. Located in Newstead in country Victoria - the store is the kind of place where the prices are low and the choices endless. The store is amazing in itself, housed in the town's original 1800s General Store and painted in it's original Red livery - all the items are displayed on the original baltic pine shelving and counters.

Also of note are the gorgeous business cards that are printed copies of an original 1800's receipt.

Australia Day - c'mon?!!

Ha ha, no joke - we finished our burgers on Australia Day and looked at out plates and found this!

Sneek Peek

I am thrilled to have commissioned the uber talented Melbourne artist Emily Harris to make a timber piece for my current cafe project. Emily sees the beauty in discarded timber pieces and composes stunning patchwork artworks. Here is a sneak peek of her work.

So simple

I adore these '72 hour' candles from Haus Interior, they're so simple and yet so clever.
