We also had a visit from JAPAN-VIC.TOURISM Inbound Shopping Guide. This well researched industry handbook is the ultimate resource for inbound Japanese tour operators. Out in OCT 2007, it features melbournestyle as its lead store, while its cover features our legendary Melbourne Cups and Saucers. They even named it after us! Domo Arigatoo Gozaimasu! (Not available to the general public - but you don't need it - you already know where we are, right? )
Meanwhile, back here at home, it was the beautiful HOME BEAUTIFUL... They came, they photographed, and now melbournestyle is featured store in this special Australian designer's issue of Home Beautiful SEPT 2007.
HOME BEAUTIFUL has also listed melbournestyle in their brand new STYLE HUNTER Shopping Guide
...So you can grab a copy (free with the latest issue) and visit us along with all the other lovely shoppable spots in Melbourne in one go. Look forward to seeing you in your safari suits soon.
Thanks to the gorgeous gals at Home Beautiful - we are very chuffed to be included in their guide. See you soon.

"EVERYTHING IN THE GALLERY PLAYS ON MELBOURNE'S UNIQUE SENSE OF HUMOUR AND CULTURE THROUGH CLEVER OBJECTS."
melbournestyle's domestic sculpture was profiled here in the EMERALD HILL WEEKLY's Retail Therapy column - the tag of 'Arte-facts and fictions' being uncannily close to what we are all about!
As you can see, we love to skite, so will let you know where else melbournestyle is catching on. Thanks to all who have helped bring our message of place, style, art and history to the wider world.

THE LOGIES exist so we never forget Graham Kennedy. Ever.
