Our Love of Melbourne

We love Melbourne, so in honour of our uber cool sister city, we have listed a few of our favourite spots to visit. Check them out if you’re around Melbourne way!



For edgy cool Melbourne style, it’s hard to go past Assin. The store interiors are pretty awesome too, with sleek concrete floors and minimal urban finishes.

138 Little Collins Street, Melbourne.



Aggh, we want everything in this store! Jewels from an impressive array of jewellery designers, we challenge you to leave without purchasing something.

Downstairs, 167 Flinders Lane, Melbourne



Fenton & Fenton

Who doesn’t love the riot of colour at Fenton and Fenton?! The perfect place to pick up a unique piece of art or ornament. We particularly love their selection of colourful cushions!

471 High St, Prahran



Cottage Industry

A little gem on Gertrude Street and one of our all-time favourite stores to visit when in Melbourne. A perfectly curated space of pieces from Melbourne and across the world.

67 Gertrude St, Fitzroy


Third Drawer Down

Another perfect place to pick up your next favourite talking piece. Quirky art and design, as well as some really awesome kids toys – it’s a fun place to visit and will keep you mesmerised for longer than you think.

93 George Street, Fitzroy



The Lindrum

We LOVE the Lindrom and its cosy and comfy rooms. Fantastic personalised service in the heart of Melbourne, a great spot for a weekend escape or just to escape too…the breakfasts are pretty awesome here too, and they even offer high tea – ooohh la la!

26 Flinders Street, Melbourne

If you’re feeling like the inner city is too much and you want to soak up the south side, look no further than Coppersmith. A boutique hotel with truly beautiful interiors. The hotel sits above a pub, but don’t let that scare you – downstairs is one of Melbournes best gastro pubs with super cool interiors to match.

435 Clarendon St, South Melbourne


Ovolo Laneways

Inner city chic at its best! Perfectly positioned in central Melbourne, with cool interiors and spacious rooms. Our pic if you want to enjoy the sights of Melbourne city.

Ovolo Laneways, 19 Little Bourke Street, Melbourne




If you’re in the mood for something different and some crazy good Asian food, check out Supernormal on Flinders Lane. Super cool interiors, great food, beer pong and karaoke – whats not to like?!?

180 Flinders Ln, Melbourne


Izakaya Den

We love love love Japanese food, and Izayaka Den does it so well. An amazing Japanese tapas style menu that never disappoints!

114 Russell St, Melbourne VIC 3000


Higher Ground

Ok so not only have we gone to design heaven (the interiors here are next level!) the food is amazing here too! Built in a former power station, the space has been divided into 6 interconnected levels of deliciousness. It is worth visiting simply to sit and wonder at the beauty that surrounds you!

650 Little Bourke Street, Melbourne


Builder’s Arms on Gertrude

A gastro pub with a Chinese flavour. Amazing Hong Kong style Chinese food wrapped up in a pub atmosphere. The interiors are super cool and the food is deeeeelicious, yum!

211 Gertrude St, Fitzroy


Marion on Gertrude

The cutest wine bar there ever was, a great place to have a wine and a bite to eat after a hard day of sight-seeing. The ambiance is just great and the bar menu is perfect too.
