I get very frustrated sometimes by the lack of inexpensive and stylish homewares in Australia. There are really no large chain-stores that carry an extensive range of good homewares for the small budget, though from what I gather there are several in the U.S. (like homegoods). And I’m not talking IKEA (though I love Ikea). Target in Australia will occasionally have a stylish mirror or cushion, but I am very jealous of Americans who have access to the wonderful (and cheap) designer homewares available at U.S. Target stores, particularly the range by designer Victoria Hagan (though I believe it’s now discontinued- or sold out!). Her interiors are refined and classic, and her homeware range reflects the same aesthetic (which suits me to a tee):
What a gorgeous patterned vase (above), and that white stool is beautiful! I am using the white mirror above for inspiration for my own mirror makeover (see previous post).
Isn’t her line fab? I love it all. Maybe it’s a good thing we don’t have it here, because I’d be down there buying one of everything and pairs of those gorgeous ceramic lamps! I contacted Target in Australia to find out why we don’t have these wonderful things in our stores and was told that the Oz and U.S. stores are completely unconnected and source their products independently of one another. What a shame!
