I'm having a Tag Sale!

Where: National Storage, 110 Wellington Street, Collingwood.


When: 9am-4pm Friday 15th and 9am-2pm Saturday 16th of August.

As an interior designer you constantly find yourself holding on to bits and pieces over the years. Some may call it hoarding but I prefer collecting, preserving or being thrifty! I often hold on to vintage or imported pieces so that they can be that extra touch in a room one day. But I have been holding on to too much! I have too many storage units full of beautiful pieces and it’s time for a spring clean of sorts. I’ve decided to hold a tag sale this week, starting tomorrow and finishing on Saturday.

All pieces are from my personal collection so you can expect a range of Chinoiserie, faux bamboo, Hollywood Regency style pieces and plenty of things in between. Most items have been brought in from America and there will be a range of mirrors, lamps, furniture, tables, fabric, rugs and accessories up for grabs.

I want absolutely everything gone and I’ll be offering things below cost price. If anyone is in the neighbourhood they should come and say hello. It's very chilly in the units so bring a coat!

Here's a few of the pieces available:

Design For Mirabel In Australian House and Garden

You may notice that we haven't posted in a little while and it's because we've been happily busy organising Design for Mirabel. 
We wanted to take a moment to thank everyone at Australian House and Garden for their incredible support with Design For Mirabel. In their March issue they ran an intimate and illuminating interview on Jane Rowe, CEO of the Mirabel Foundation. I could tell you more about her work with the Mirabel Foundation and our upcoming event but they've done such a brilliant job that it's well worth the read, you can find it here.

Not only that but in their July issue they interviewed three of our designers for the upcoming event. Meryl Hare of HARE+KLEIN, Adelaide Bragg or ADELAIDE BRAGG & ASSOCIATES and Anna Spiro of BLACK & SPIRO talk about their style, approach to design and connection to Design for Mirabel. It's getting us so excited to see their work!

They also ran a full page advertistment for Design For Mirabel, they are so good to us!


We were also pleased to see Mary McDonald gracing the pages of the July issue. Mary is one of our featured designers speaking at the Mercer School of Interior Design International Lecture Series. Her Melbourne event has already sold out and just a few spaces are left for her Sydney event, needless to say we're brimming with excitement at the office.

Jane Rowe - Mirabel

We are so honored to be sharing this beautiful article from the May issue of Australian House & Garden.

The story is about the inspiring and lovely Jane Rowe - CEO & Founder of The Mirabel Foundation. Jane is not only a good friend of ours, but an incredibly giving and kind person who started the Mirabel Foundation in 1998 - an organisation addressing the needs of children who have been orphaned or abandoned due to parental drug use.

We are also very excited to announce that we have been working with Jane and her team on a new and very special benefit event!

Design for Mirabel will showcase ten of Australia’s finest interior designers, and each designer will design and completely decorate and style a room. This ticketed red carpet cocktail event will be held on July 24th, and following this, the space will be turned into a retail event like no other, where the public can view rooms.

This will be a shopping extravaganza for all! Every piece in the designers vignettes will be for sale at 50-70% off the retail price! It’s such a fantastic opportunity to not only find that perfect piece you have been looking for, but to know that your contribution will go to Mirabel.


We are so privileged to be apart of such an incredible cause, and to raise awareness for the Mirabel Foundation. All of the proceeds raised from the inaugural Design for Mirabel event will be put towards building a new Mirabel Home.
