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.

NEW AND FABULOUS IN THE CAPITAL CITY OF STYLE
Off to the Botanical Gardens with you! Winter warmies, scarves, boots, coffee and the sunshine streaming Vitamin D onto your cheeks. Scones, jam, cream or pack a picnic and kip on The Age. No? Then stay in, find a sunny spot near the window, and gaze at this practicality-defying creation, the Swan Teapot, Cup, Saucer and Spoon. And swoon. Teapot $185, cup/saucer/spoon $140.
We've filled ours with Schwarovski crystal-crusted Mezi Meteors and CC Skye Pave Links. Nice ice, Baby.
More gorgeous ceramic insanities to charm and delight you. Ginger Pot, Swirling Surf Dish, Peacock, Lady Bug, Swan, Owls.... from here there and everywhere and now at melbournestyle.
DECO ECHO - A sign of the times?
Waaay back n the 1920s and 30s when things were getting bleaker, dollars getting tighter, Deco was the look of defiance in the face of it all. Well, what goes around comes around.

Cuffs, rings, chains, links, black and gold are the new black and gold. See more here..., but the rest is in store.
