That's right - THE New York Times paid us a visit. How did they find melbournestyle? These New Yorkers... they don't miss a trick! What did they find in store? For full article on melbourne click here NYT Style Magazine Totally Aussie in Melbourne or jump direct to the article DESIGN WITHIN REACH
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, and 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 local Aussie shoppers - but you don't need it - you already know where we are, right? )
Meanwhile, back here at home, since they first found us in Home Beautiful , the Home Beauties have visited time and again with their fab shoping tours (see below).
HOME BEAUTIFUL has listed melbournestyle in the legendary STYLE HUNTER Shopping Guide...So you can grab a copy (free with the latest issue) and visit us along with all the other top-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.

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!

NEW AND FABULOUS IN THE CAPITAL CITY OF STYLE
HOPPING MAD? course you are. And they say the galahs are in the bush? Wrong Bush, methinks. Gallery
OH, can you believe it?? Are these not the cutest little ladies you've ever seen? All the way from the USA just for the Melbourne Cup Carnival. The ladies are dressed up and ready to go.... ceramic insanities by Robin Van Valkenburg. In store now.....
A COOL SCARF THAT'S HOT? Yep - it's easy when it's made from 100% cotton by Melbourne's very own Ella Sanders. Perfect for when you aren't wearing much else - add to a little summer dress, skimpy top and jeans.
AND THEY HUNG NED KELLY FOR A HORSE! Can't see anyone bothering with tribute artworks to Alan Greenspan in 100 years time. Just a hunch. Who'da thunk that buying and selling Nothing has its limits? Seems the gravy train can be cancelled, just like the 8.15 from Frankston. Hey, if it means we get a better sense of what's real and valuable, then it's not for nought. Ask yourself next purchase: is this so good, so clever, so meaningful that it will lift my spirits and sustain me? If you don't need it, don't buy it. If it doesn't warm your heart, charm you or make you think, do you need it? Would you give it? Don't buy rubbish, forget mass-produced. Buy art and plant potatoes.
MORE NEW BIG NEDS are on their way like the Bush Cockies above top -but they ride outta the gallery faster than you can crash a bank, so be quick. Meanwhile, see more of the new Bush Cockies series here.... (DeadCockiesFly, M. Coote 2008, above)
THIS IS THE ONLY kind of precious metal that lasts. You can even leave it out in the rain. If it rains. Park you tan on a gold or silver porcelain ceramic stool this summer. No broker needed. More colours here. If your tan is a litle broad to perch on a stool, then you may prefer the glamourous comfort of black velvet underneath. Just arrived!
IT'S COMING, IT'S COMING. Having a fabulous time reconnecting with the city to write this next edition. Bigger and more beautiful than the last, so much to explore, but the deadline looms... You'll be the first to see it.
UP AND COMING EXHIBITION - whimsical, delightful, Bern Emmerichs Colonials coming soon, so stay tuned. Been a little delayed, but back on track. details of show here very shortly.
