In the earlier years of Design Merchants I used to do a ‘Monday Morning with Molly’ post most weeks. I thought during this strange time it would be a good idea to bring it back. Hopefully Molly’s quizzical looks and cute underbite will put a smile on your face. #designmerchants #mondaymorningwithmolly #DMworkshop #studioscene #visualmerchandising #dogsofdesigners #creativestudio Photo @shoshcreative

The workshop is looking very peaceful and under control at the moment, bathed in natural light. Just by chance it worked out to be very good timing that we had our prop sale when we did and have had time to rearrange and restyle everything ready for better days.

We agree Molly, this week has been absolutely exhausting! Like everyone else we have been dealing with the current and ever changing situation. Working out ways to adapt and still be productive during this time. Am loving seeing the community rally around each other with support, especially among our VM, retail, hospitality and event friends. We will keep you posted on our progress and would love to hear about yours.

For the Autumn VM concept for the Westfield WA centres we took inspiration from colour theory and using this to highlight the main Autumnal colours. With many of the positive attributes of these colours being associated with wellness and the importance of how colours you wear make you feel. 
Yellow- emotional strength, confidence & creativity 💛
Orange- Security, passion & fun 🧡
Red- strength, warmth & energy ❤️ #visualmerchandising #designmerchants #designstudio #perthcreatives
Styling by the lovely @stylebyjuvelle
