I am off to the Melbourne International Flower & Garden show tomorrow and word is it will be quite amazing. I love to see what is happening outside, the interior and exterior of a space can't (or shouldn't) exist seperately but rather they are symbiotic and often one will inspire the other. I hope to have lots of inspiring shots to share with you over the next few days (or longer depending on how great it is!) so stay tuned! Till then...

Continuing the animal & ‘forest friends’ trend that we have been seeing so much of are these beautiful ornate trays from Ibride (Paris). These gorgeous trays are almost too good to use but are totally practical and if you can't bear to serve morning tea on the amazing designs they also come with a wall fixing bracket so that they can be wall mounted. Not completely new to the design world but now available in Melbourne from one of my favourite retail destinations 4M. Shown here are characters that captured my heart, other designs include birds, a polar bear and images of vintage women. Each design is a different size and the core material of the trays is recycled wood. For prices and availability contact 4M.
p.s check out the Ibride website, its quite gorgeous and fantastical!
