I’m now back on board after two amazing weeks in Japan! Absolutely loved it and was blown away by the design, colours and mix of modern and traditional everywhere we went. Thanks so much to my team for doing such a great job while I was gone especially Vanessa who took charge perfectly. 🙏🏻 Looking forward to sharing all this inspiration in upcoming projects over the coming months! #visualmerchandising #visualmerchandiser #travelforinspiration #liveauthentic #tokyojapan

I can’t believe it has been a year since we moved into this awesome workshop space! It has certainly been a game changer! Being able to take on larger projects, have everything in one place and having a space that the whole team can enjoy working in. The natural light and white walls were definitely one of my favourite things about the space too. Side note...it is much much fuller than this now!! 😬😆 #designmerchantsworkshop #designmerchants #visualmerchandising #visualmerchandiser #creativeartistsagency #retailactivations #dogsofdesign #workshopspace

Love a bit of contrast! A dramatic background for these florals, another for @westfieldcarousel and the lounge activation we designed.  #designmerchants #floralstyling #visualmerchandising #visualmerchandiser #retailactivation #perthretail #perthcreatives #interiorstylingperth

Three weeks tomorrow until I head to Japan! Getting so excited but there is lots to do for upcoming projects before I go! Of course the DM team will be looking after things while I go and have my first holiday in 2 years to get recharged with inspiration. I like to think I am already getting inspired by Japan with these recent florals we did for @westfieldcarousel 🌸 #designmerchants #floralstyling #plantsonpink #visualmerchandising #visualmerchandiser #perthcreatives #perthretail #retailactivation
