Tim caught animated in full-flight styling mode!
This week in this special styling workshop, Tim brought the pages of his beautiful book to life to help others create their very own “sandcastle” or coastal-inspired interior.
Over light refreshments provided by our friends at Cellarmasters and catering from Williams-Sonoma cooking school, Tim showed how easy it is to avoid the decorating clichés and think like a stylist at home by mixing key pieces with your own collection of salvaged objects.
Guests watched Tim in action, then gave it a go themselves, encouraged to bring in small objects from their own collections (such as seashells, driftwood or souvenirs) mxing in beautiful wares from Pottery Barn available in store.
Catering was provided by neighbouring William Sanoma’s Cooking School.
With Chantal from Pottery Barn, Australia.

So excited to launch my first book ‘Sandcastles – Interiors inspired by the Coast’ in my hometown of Newcastle, NSW this weekend.
You’re all invited to the shopfront – pictured here – which has been transformed for the occasion with an array of coastal style vintage wares, in an appealing underwater palette of blues and greens. It’s also a celebration of one year since I first started trading in Islington, NSW.
Officially released this week around Australia by publisher Murdoch Books, Sandcastles is a beautifully designed, hardcover, 275 paged coffee table book filled with homes situated along our east coast styled in Tim’s signature aesthetic.
I like to think Sandcastles aims to show coastal styling in it’s purest for. That is, not the clichéd and kitsch version that comes to mind sometimes. Nautical is also a key trend in interiors for 2015. If you can’t make it in person to pick up a copy just jump over to the online store to order your signed book.
This is one in a series of book signings, readings and events over the next couple of months in both Newcastle and Sydney, including US retail giant Pottery Barn, that will include novel activities to suit the nautical theme – like fake sailor tattoos for attendees and master sandcastle sculptors doing live displays. Check out the full event schedule here.

Stylist Tim Neve’s eclectic pop-up store filled with vintage-style wares in Islington is excited to announce we’ve set the date for the seasonal re-launch of the store, Saturday August 30.
What does that mean? Well our doors have been closed the past month or so whilst we’ve been busy painting, styling and curating a new-look space for the fresh Spring period ahead.
The date coincides with Design+, the Newcastle interior design event that will run a shuttle service between Islington retailers and the Parry Street HQ throughout the day.
Attendees on that day will get the first chance to visit the revamped store, filled with newly hand-selected items by Tim.
For this, Tim has mixed an on-trend palette of emerald and copper as the base for a collection of botanical-themed rustic objects and designer curios.
Some favourites from last season’s collection of vintage-inspired homewares and gifts include Australian designers Alchemy Candles from Melbourne who hand-pour soy wax into scientific beakers for a distinctive look.
We’re also thrilled to introduce Sydney’s Rainy Sunday into the fold, with authentic mason jars topped with shining copper lids to either sip from, or arrange flowers within.
To continue the aesthetic in-line with the dawn of Spring, fresh flowers in the form of native and foraged blooms will also be available to purchase on the day.
Find Timothy’s near the corner of Beaumont Street and Maitland Road, Islington NSW with the emerald green door and copper window sign writing, of course…
Saturdays & Sundays 10am – 4pm

TN recently packed up a selection of vintage wares from his colourful pop-up store and literally hit the road.
Timothy’s made its way from Neve’s hometown of Newcastle to the small country town of Mudgee, NSW.
The final destination was Trelawney Farm, a 25 acre former dairy farm property with a spacious 5-bedroom homestead that has been transformed extensively by Kathy Collins of boutique Sydney renovation company Urban Splash.
Situated on the doorstep of the town’s reputable wineries, the accommodation has gone onto win tourism awards and is featured in numerous design magazines nationally.
“The moment we arrived at Trelawney Farm we knew we were somewhere special,” Tim says “From the end of the winding driveway to the property you spy in the distance the all-white exterior of the building with a cheery red front door that greets you. Every angle of the farm is utterly picturesque”.
Along with photographer Johan Palsson they shot a series of evocative interiors at the farmhouse.
Mixes of rustic, industrial and folksy pieces were used in the setups, all from Tim’s store. Neve’s unique styling solutions emerged, in the form of tarnished trophies used as vessels to hold cascades of native blooms, piles of vintage suitcases with an appealing nostalgic vibe, and simple upcylcing ideas like a wooden stepladder used as a bedside table.
The photographic collaboration gives a glimpse of the duo’s aesthetic and what to expect from their next big project, the release of Tim’s first international book in 2015, a hardcover publication with Murdoch Books.
