Travel Series

So, I have been trying to brainstorm how to incorporate my international travels here in Australia into my design blog to make my posts more inspired and interesting. I've had trouble lately coming up with blog-worthy posts and its probably because I've been so caught up in getting settled here and exploring. So now that I'm finally getting the hang of the land down under I've decided it would be fun to do a type of travel series; visiting and reviewing various interior decor and design stores and boutiques in and around Melbourne. Each week I will spotlight a new store and give most likely raving reviews. There's already one store I'm infatuated with called, Maison L, in Richmond just outside of the city.
I was walking to the bus from an interview in this tiny city and there was this little tiny boutique that I had to stop and double take. The owner must have thought I was nuts, as I didn't stop raving about the one-of-a-kind pieces of giant coral that she had in amongst Chanel paperweights, french ivory linens and lilies. I was too overwhelmed (and my feet were killing me from my Michael Kors pumps) to take pictures, but Maison L will be one of the first stops on my list. Unfortunately she doesn't have a website.
So I hope you all enjoy reading my design travel series and it should be up and running in a week or so. And I found these fabulous pillows courtesy of Studio TOTA's blog.
