one fine day handmade

I visited the cutest little store today 'one fine day' located in Bangalow near Byron Bay. This store is a crafter's delight. They have an incredible range of cool stuff! From gift cards, gift wrap, bakers twine to illustrations, fabric decals, pastel coloured milk bottles, cute necklaces, calendars the list goes on... I sure do wish I could own a store like this one day! Be sure to check out their facebook page - or better still go and visit them for those who live in the area!

V.S.T.R store interior

While walking down the main street of Byron Bay I discovered VSTR store and it's beautiful interior. VSTR stands for visitor and is owned by Kelly Slater and his associate. It is situated in a house which is split in half and shared with another store holder. There is an open window at the front of the store which I especially love, wooden racks and table and these great big chest of drawers that open with rope handles. It has a real surfer/eco feel. Oh and they sell rad mens clothes too! Enjoy the pics below.

Amazing! I just stumbled upon this blog -
It has the best inspiration for colour palettes. It's so fascinating how much colour is in some of these photographs! These are great combinations to use for decorating the home or adding a pop colour to your space that you wouldn't have thought of!
