My orange tree is a bit confused by the weather....it's ready for harvest and blossoming at the same time! This cold start to Spring didn't stop me from doing some spring cleaning today so that I could get to my favourite spot for photographs in the spare room! Does anyone else have odd spots that actually end up having the best light for photos? #longweekends #designmerchants #flatlayforever #visualmerchandising

A good backdrop is essential to engage customers for place making and photos i.e. selfies. This was a fun one that we created for the @westfieldcarousel SS16 Fashion Weekend Hub areas. #visualmerchandising #westfieldcarousel #designmerchants #perthcreatives

I thought it was very good timing that I finally put up a newspost about our VM work on @hatch_shop_ today! With the @telstraperthfashionfestival having launched yesterday and with the WA Designer Capsule runway show on tonight (which I'm very excited to be going to!) these pics really showcase what amazing designers WA have! It was great to play a part in showcasing them in the VM fit-out at @karrinyup_sc Click on the link in our profile to check it out! #visualmerchandising #TPFF2016 #wadesigners #karrinyup #designmerchants #ampcapital @fashioncouncilwa ð· @stevie.elle

A deconstructed vignette of the @kmartaus props we used to style the @westfieldcarousel Style Hub with accents of greenery, which is always one of my favourite VM touches! #visualmerchandising #props #merchandising #merchandiser #westfieldcarousel

RETAIL INSPO | This is still one of my favourite pieces of retail design! I took this photo a few years ago at @allsaints Spitalfields in London, the wall of vintage sewing machines proving why repetition is such a killer design technique in VM and store design! #visualmerchandising #dmvmlove #retaildesign #proplove #ihavethisthingwithprops
