Busy daze !!!

Hi There everyone, well what a whirl wind day !!! As you know we do custom made pieces so we have had a wonderful time today designing cabinets and a beautiful cupboard to fit into a gorgeous Queenslander. Then to another amazing job where we are doing a Hamptons style ensuite vanity with sconce lighting and lovely bespoke cabinetry and an amazing walk in Robe !!! Yes we do that...... we count your shoes and bags .... jewelles and clothes, we make sure all your fabulous pieces have homes. Everything is catered for!!! When you go to dress it is a divine dressing EXPERIENCE and you feel like a STAR!!! just like Carrie (think S.I.T.C) after all that!! I ran off to another amazing house that we will be filling with all of our beautiful pieces.
We are in the process of decorating the first of many rooms for a gorgeous client in Hawthorne....the daughters room with vibrant pinks, a beautiful deep button bedhead, fabulous wallpaper and a very girly glamorous desk and stool, Divine!!! Next the parents room with duck egg blues and muted tones. The sons room will be Ralph Lauren Polo inspired as we need to fit in a massive oar in somewhere!
On this home we are knocking out some walls, expanding the outside and building onto the back of the home.....It is on the river and we want to take advantage of the amazing outlook.
Anyway it has been Go go go today... but a very satisfying and creative experience all round.
Melinda & Natalee

I Am down in Melbourne with Natalee on a wee buying always looking for gorgeous pieces for my lovely shop (and some personal girl shopping.....hunting for lovely jacket and scarves.
Sooooooo we were having dinner at Nobu (Robert De Niros restaurant underneath the casino) and everything was wrong; Our order was mixed up, some items didn't turn up and my favourite black cod with Miso was burnt!! But the staff were so amazing they didn't charge for anything and plied us with 2 bottles of Veuve Clicquot!! YAY!!
So we were nearly the last to leave (having waited and waited for last item to arrive) and OH MY GOD!!!
Clive Owen came into restaurant! My all time favourite actor!!! l
Love him (in all his movies) and have watched them all a few toooo many times (not at all to do with how absolutely yummy he is) So there he was sitting at the bar so of course not being a backward young lady...dragged Natalee over for a chat and proceeded to gush and giggle and act like crazed stalker fan!! But he was very charming and took it all very well and only backed away slightly while keeping his eyes on the nearest exit!
He is in town filming his new movie with Robert De Niro "Killer Elite" and has grown a moustache which still did not detract from his very green eyes with black eyelashes, small freckle under eye (not that i was taking any notice)
Anyway totally star struck and feeling happy about life and all the beautiful things I am about to buy. Off to have breakfast in St Kilda will be stalking I mean walking around Melbourne later in the day will keep you posted if find I just happen to bump into him. :)
