concept to reality
A couple of years ago I had the pleasure of styling Clare’s beautiful vintage clothing boutique, then located in Islington NSW.
Recently they’ve upgraded to a double frontage shop in the newly-humming Newcastle Mall, and asked TN to wave the style wand once again:
With a fresh focus on vintage frocks imported from the USA, and the brief being simply “Girly” florals and pink seemed appropriate, but the task was to clear steer from becoming the Barbie Boutique!
Instead the interior reflects a tasteful nostalgia, wrapped in a pretty pink bow.
Adore the cluster of chandeliers centre stage, dripping with pearls…
Struggling with what to get mum for mothers day?
Or are you a mum who needs to drop a hint so you can make sure you get what you really want?
Check out this great offer from magstore.com.au, where you can sign up for a years subscription to Australian Coastal Home magazine at the reduced price of only $4.20/issue, AND take advantage of the new Pay-as-you-Go option also. Too easy!
It’s all here. But hurry it ends Sunday…
We know you’ll all be thrilled to hear that it’s only just over a month until the next Winter issue of Australian Coastal Home magazine hits newsagents nationally!
In that issue we welcome the aptly titled Coastal Real Estate and Property Management to the ACH family.
Have you heard about their latest promotion? Have your property listed for sale with them and you could WIN the chance to have your home professionally styled by the talented Silk Home Staging, with the ‘before and after’ transformations featured in an upcoming issue of our magazine. What an amazing prize and exposure for those considering selling.
They service the gorgeous Tea Gardens, NSW and surrounds (which is also our Destination: Travel Guide next issue!)
But hurry if you’re interested, only homes listed during the month of April will be eligible. More…
Winter details at Rosie’s Closet above and below
I’m more of a Summer than a Winter person (hence my attraction to all things Coastal…) but recently I dived into creating some magical make-believe worlds of Winter for my usual line-up in The Junction of window displays:
At Scentsation it’s a tribal take on the season in rich tones that reflects their new-season fashion offerings from the likes of Camilla.
At Sanbah it’s a Scandi-inspired winter with raw woods, heavy knit crocheted homewares and pops of sunny yellow to ward off any gloom.
And finally at Rosie’s Closet it’s almost ‘Christmas in April’ as we go into the woods with rustic styling in emerald green and signal red, against a backdrop of a papercraft snowstorm.
Looking at the results I have to say maybe Winter isn’t that bad afterall… !

Love the (real) mini pine tree forest!
I can think of a few adults who would like these red gumboots, too!
Over three days this free event will showcase the Hunter’s leading destination for fashion, and in Tim’s segment he’ll show you how to translate the seasons trends into your home this Autumn/Winter.
What’s more, we’ll be giving away subscriptions to Coastal Home Magazine and one lucky person could win a new season homewares shopping spree with Tim including a $700 Westfield Gift Card (Wowee!)
Can’t wait to see you there…
With all the hype of TV’s The Block taking over the airwaves once more, it seems appropriate to mention our recent inclusion in Season 1’s Gav and Waz’s Designer Boys Collections, new season catalogue.
We adore their box-framed sea fan artworks, so organic and understated in style, and included them in the TN styling of 12 modern luxury cabins at Stockton Tourist Park.
Speaking of, that would be a perfect spot to relax this Easter long weekend… we hope you all have a wonderful time no matter where you are!
My goodness if we could bottle the anticipation and excitement from you guys in the leadup to the release of a new issue of Australian Coastal Home magazine!
Your support is fantastic, thank you. We’re thrilled to announce that as of today at newsagents nation-wide you’ll find the latest issue for Autumn 2013.
It’s a warm-toned edition to reflect the season ahead, as we journey from Sydney’s Northern Beaches to Byron Bay to explore what home means to beachside dwellers.
As always, here’s a sneak-peek until you can get to the newsagents. Happy reading…
TN illustrates each trend forecast as tactile moodboards, installed centre court at Westfield for shopper inspiration…
We were recently asked by style partner-in-crime Tanya Fogarty Design to get crafty and cut-and-paste together some moodboards to illustrate the coming season’s top fashion trends.
Each board demonstrates a style and shows how to get the look in both clothing as well as translating it into interiors of your home too. The finishing touch on each are tactile fabrics and trims to bring each concept into reality.
We were blown away by the final installation on easels, accompanied by a black-carpet runway to form a temporary mini-gallery centre court at Westfield Koatara. They form the part of TFD’s seasonal visual merchandising schemes throughout the centre for the next 3 months.
Psst, Stay tuned for more exciting Westfield Stylist news to unfold in coming weeks…
A wall covered in organic fabric pieces suggests a warm winter landscape, as if made of luxurious silk scarves such as those sold within Scentsation.
This week Autumn window styling schemes continue to be unveiled, each one a unique take on the season ahead:
At Scentsation a luxurious design that captures warm, Autumnal tones in a fashionable way.
Neighbouring children’s retailer Rosie’s Closet takes the opposite approach with a rustic landscape of orange and apple trees ready for harvest.
Most coveted inclusion? TN’s handcrafted birdhouses made from vintage Golden Books. Fun!
Next week: the Autumn/Winter reveal includes Westfield trend forecasts…
Rosie’s rustic new-season scheme, concept to reality:
Wowee, do we have a special offer for you. Recently our publishers confirmed another four seasonal issues of Australian Coastal Home magazine, headed up by Tim Neve over the next year 2013/14.

We know you have been waiting for this convenience by the constant flood of email requests – so now your wish is granted!
What’s more we can’t believe what a great price is on offer: four issues for only $15 is basically half the retail price (by that equation you could buy two for the price of one – so why not treat a friend too?)
