Once upon a time...

tucked away in a sweet Sydney suburb, lived a very lonely and neglected -


little shop!

As luck would have it, the lovely Connie chanced upon said shop and, even luckier for me, I was given the opportunity to help transform the space into her new design studio - how I love my job!

We decided upon, as you may have already guessed, a bird theme using back and white and yellow as our colour scheme. We also incorporated vintage finds including a most excellent mirror that Connie had found on the side of the road. 

The result is -

Black and white set the background to a bird themed centre piece and yellow highlights

a fresh -

Lots of paper birds and recycled medicine vials set amongst white spray painted branches

contemporary -

Simple white shelves and a collection of frames transform another wall within the space

space -

More birds and some of Connie's gorgeous rings

from which Connie now works and sells her beautiful handmade jewellery. 

Our favourite piece!

And, with that, it's bye bye birdie for now!

May your weekend be chirpy,
Stephie x
