The Melbourne Series – Fenton & Fenton

fenton entryOn our recent visit to Melbourne we took a visit to High St, Parahan. From the rustic door, framed by wooden altar candles, to the eye candy window displays we slipped into another world … The home of Fenton & Fenton

A riot of colour and texture greeted us, from rugs on the floor to oversized art on the walls and the wire chandeliers hanging from the vaulted ceilings. Botanicals were nestled in vessels from Pop & Scott, and beautiful vignettes were created with concrete art from Design twins, bone inlay trays and potted cacti.

Walking into Fenton & Fenton is like walking into a perfectly edited home, what makes it even better is the lovely service from the staff – it felt like we had called in to see an old friend.

The Melbourne Series – Twiggargerie


As you all know, we’re big lovers of colour and fun pieces and so we instantly fell in love with these dainty twig creations. We first came across Twiggargerie via Mark Tuckey last year, and then fell in love all over again after seeing them in real life. These sculptural pieces are designed by Anita Bell in Devon and hand made in Melbourne by Brian Bell.


As they are crafted from natural twigs, each has its own unique shape and no two pieces are the same. They are available in a range of bright colours including Neon Pink, Neon Orange, Yellow, Apple Green, Blue, White and Natural.
