Barnby Lane Furniture store Melbourne

Okay I’ll admit I was drawn in by the interior pictures and the website is pretty cool. Not sure about some of the designs but it’s a bit different to Ikea or bed, bath and beyond. Right? 

Barnby Lane is worth a look for some armchair remodelling st least. So we can pretend to live in a quiet village somewhere in Iceland.

Kochi Takada tackling noise in the Cave

Cave restaurant that is.


Have you ever gone to a really cool restaurant on a day out. Great atmosphere, great food, even great service but you couldn’t hear the people you were with. Okay top that you couldn’t hear yourself think.

On one hand you know this place must have good food since so many people are here but being able to call there waiter without doing the Mexican wave on your able is also a bonus.


Well these guys are trying to create a design that deals with acoustic sound and creates a beautiful and unique eating environment. I just love the flow of the curve walls. If it does work like it should probably be a cosy, muffled dinning experience where you aren’t bombarded by the noise from the party of fifteen at the end of the restaurant. We wish them all the best but we are paying for our night out and deserve a great night too. Am I right?🍴;)

Dreaming of Australia

The Great barrier reef, the sea, the sands and the blinking hot bush.



Apart from the fact that it’s an island. I think the attraction to Australia is the mysteries that Australia could hold. There is a lot of unexplored land. Out there in the uninhabited harsh lands. Where no one will hear you scream. No one for miles. You know what I think I’ll stay at home a day longer.

I remember seeing a snap shot if this a while back and wondering. Who, when, where? You know the usual.

Then presto. A random search for something inspiring brings me all the answers.

Now while Bob is getting over excited by my desk at the prospect of going to Australia ( pats minion on head). Let’s take the time to appreciate this unique gem from down under. I am loving that mood lighting.
