Motivate me Mondays #9.

A long weekend in Melbourne and everyone seems alive and buzzing. To me, the Melbourne Cup weekend always represents the start of good weather (we hope!) and the count down to Christmas! Can you believe it already?   Over the past week I've received some fabulous new products hit my inbox, so let me share them with you. 

1 / If you are considering a renovation or doing some improvements to your home this summer, then let us help you get started! We've discounted our design fee services until 30 Nov 2014. Read all about our offer here.

2 / If you're looking for creative storage ideas for the bedroom, then how about this hanging copper rack from NZ fashion designer Melissa Brooks? Two options available in her range, the hanging rack (my favourite!) and the standing rack. Also available in white or black galvanised steel.

4 / Last week on The Design Files, we were invited into the home of Matt and Lentil Purbrick, who are the owners of a beautiful country home in central Victoria. Their home possesses so much warmth and character, filled with timber features, cosy seating spots and treasured possessions. I was instantly taken by their "homely" space and a life outside the city. "Their home, and their lifestyle, is a study in simplicity and restraint". We totally agree TDF. Let me know what you think!

5 / On my list to visit this long weekend, the new headquarters of Jardan. Not only do they produce beautiful locally made furniture, they now showcase their collection in an ever-inspiring studio. Have you been there yet?
