Working as an interior designer I source furnishings & accessories from anywhere & everywhere. I’m constantly on the look out for new brands & new products that will suit my current & future clients. I spend a lot of time trawling the internet, visiting supplier showrooms & hunting around second hand stores. I’m always on the look out for the perfect piece for now & filing away ideas for prospective projects. It’s my speciality to know where to shop for all manner of furniture & homewares on any given budget.

I recommend products from many online emporiums to my clients along with the known big brand chains & designers but where I can I like to use local businesses from around Geelong, the Surfcoast & the Bellarine. Here are a few of my local favourites…

Easterly, Torquay

Kyo, Ocean Grove

Kyo

Kyo is a trade warehouse that is also open to the public. It consists of two giant warehouses, jam packed with new & repurposed, furniture, homewares & every other conceivable item imported from around the world. I have never failed to find something unusual at Kyo. It’s amazing, worth a visit just to sight see. Kyo

Kiitos – Living by Design, Barwon Heads & Torquay

Boom Gallery, Newtown

Boom Gallery

Boom is a fresh & modern contemporary art and design gallery that presents the work of emerging and established artists, such as Rohan Robinson, Ingrid Daniell & Scott Andrews. Where possible I encourage my clients to invest in artworks rather than decorator prints & Boom is a great place to buy exciting & interesting pieces at affordable prices. Boom Gallery
