Heading into Winter and with restrictions easing we took inspiration for the latest @cockburngateway VM concept from fashion for weekends down South or just adventures in the city. Using our custom painted ombré bamboo curtains and floral accents.

We are very excited to be starting to get back into some VM projects and I thought it was a perfect time to introduce you to the DM team. ð This is the lovely and talented Sally who started with Design Merchants 6 years ago (with a few breaks to live in Japan, develop her own creative practice and study) Sally has always been a valuable part of the team and has recently become my Design Assistant as well as continuing as a VM consultant. Sally is a creative through and through. She has a background working in retail, fashion & design, has completed a Cert IV in Visual Arts and continually pursues her own art and fashion projects through @delimates ð I am looking forward to the creative brainstorming and general fun we always have as we ramp back up!

With everything going on lately I had forgotten that Design Merchants has turned 9! It really has been an amazing 9 years and I have met and worked with so many talented and inspiring people because of this. I do so appreciate the clients that we have collaborated with over this time and the opportunities they have given us. This has helped us grow as a business, push design boundaries and produce countless creative VM projects that we are immensely proud of. I started the business when a lot of people told me how bad the retail landscape was but I saw potential and opportunity in assisting businesses and brands in creating inspirational visual merchandising experiences through training, consulting and production of VM displays and activations. Design Merchants has evolved with the changing times for retail and we will use this same philosophy moving forward to support our DM community which includes our clients and suppliers and of course my wonderful team. xx Juliet #designmerchants #visualmerchandising #visualmerchandiser #creativestudio #designstudio #perthcreatives ð· @shoshcreative

I had a fun afternoon taking photos of the hydrangeas I had been drying in the shed over the past few months. Love the spectrum of colours! #designmerchants #visualmerchandising #visualmerchandiser #creativestudio #hydrangealove #manjimuphydrangae #driedflowers

It has been a bit of a slow process tidying up the studio (waiting for the motivation & creativity etc ð¬) but I am finally making some progress which I will show you soon. I have also been having fun with some of the collections I am uncovering...including a large amount of string, a small amount of which is pictured here! #designmerchants #visualmerchandising #flatlaystyle #perthcreatives #creativestudio #isocreative

TEAM DM // Missing seeing these lovely faces in person! Many of you will have met Vanessa (left) and Sally (right) and know that they are talented, smart, funny and creative and a valuable and valued part of Design Merchants. During this time, we are keeping in regular contact on what is happening in the business and brainstorming future projects. Our DM Socialclub has gone virtual and we are doing Friday afternoon drinks as another way to stay connected and have some fun too! ð¥ð Love this photo which captures the moment I gave the guys their new business cards! ð¸ @shoshcreative #designmerchants #visualmerchandising #creativestudio #designstudio #perthcreatives
