Life Instyle and 'mazing Melbourne

The Life Instyle show held in Melbourne last week looked to be a huge success, with inspiring new handmade items soon to be available in shops across the country.
Some of my favourite stallholders  ......
Clay Australia handcreate ceramic homewares like this...


Sydney based Attia craft functional tableware from natural sustainable timber and stone....

 and I can just imagine EcoInspired's range of table napkins (right) matching beautifully with this Attia table setting...





I'm always drawn to woven floor rugs so no surprises I like Armadillo&Co. Their rug collection is meticulously made by hand and produced to the highest ethical standards.... gorgeous neutral toned rugs woven by hand using sustainable natural fibres...
and about 'mazing Melbourne?..........I really like Melbourne, but I'm so bad at following maps..... and in the rain last week......it was like being in a maze! Fortunately Melbourne has great coffee spots and restaurants that source their fine ingredients locally...not to mention Melbourne's wonderful homewares and fashion stores!

  2. The rugs are great! My best friend Sally loves to have same rugs on her cabin. She said the material of the rug seems warm. She also loves the cabin to be neat and smells like fresh cut grass in the morning. So she often does carpet cleaning (Norfolk) and uses green products to keep the natural smell of the space. We love hanging out in her cabin together with our friends and have some bonding moments and breathe out problems to each other. To us, the cabin is the treasure chest of our friendship and memories of happiness and pain. So we keep it clean and learn more about green cleaning to carpet cleaners (Chesapeake, VA.).
