I heart Melbourne...

Melbourne homewares style, photo by Mike Baker, styling by Heather Nette King

Talk about a tough edit...

Each and every day I receive new info about another fabulous Melbourne person or company who has poured their heart and soul into designing and making stylish new chairs, bottles, artworks, sculptures, tea towels, cushions...

It's inspiring - on so many levels.  And it's always beyond hard trying to choose which ones to shoot.

For this Savvy Shopper round-up of (the teeny-tiniest portion) of fabulous Melbourne designs, I took my cues from our city itself.  Paved with solid bluestone foundations, with the steely cold grey/blue backdrop of our sky, and the occasional, much-welcomed burst of winter sun.

Here is a peek behind the scenes on the day.

Keep warm!
