There's a select few highlights on the calendar each year when it comes to homeware and interior trends. For me (and for design store owners with their finger on the pulse of what's now and what's next), Life Instyle is one of those events. Held in Sydney and Melbourne, it's a bi-annual curated trade show for the best brands in Australia and New Zealand - over 600 different brands in fact, representing the very latest in interior design and homeware. At the 2015 Melbourne event this month, they're welcoming a line-up of exciting newcomers, plus loads of established brands who use Life Instyle as the place to unveil their latest designs (so you get a first look at the good goodness and new newness).
Pack yo' suitcase and meet me there? Life Instyle (and the sister event Kids Instyle - brands specifically for cool kids stuff) is happening from 30th July - 2nd August.
I went through and picked some of my fave brands... (Um, this was the shortlist! the struggle is real.)
