Concept (above) to reality…
Tim has waved his style wand for the international event Surfest this month in his hometown of Newcastle.
A vacant space at local boutique shopping destination Junction Fair has been transformed into a tropical-inspired chillout lounge, where surfers of all ages can gather and watch the action televised live from the real event at nearby Merewether Beach. It kicks off next week.
We’re thrilled with the styling result: especially the surfboards that become coffee tables when attached by ocky-straps to tolix stools, and handpainted plywood tiles in summery tones and triangles.
Check it out…
As always it seems like an eternity between seasons! We know you’ve been waiting…
Finally, I’m thrilled to say that Australian Coastal Home magazine’s latest issue is out now.
Subscribers have had the pleasure of flicking through the pages early over the past week, but the 7th issue will hit newsagents nationally from Friday.
Spring is always a favourite time of mine, and this fresh issue certainly reflects that.
Take a flick through a sneak-peek online, here…
We’re certainly feeling the old adage at the moment that It’s the Journey, not the Destination.
That’s because we’re having a blast whizzing up and down freeways along the East Coast visiting sea-changers and their inspirational abodes to feature in our first book.
If only we were doing so in a vintage VW Kombi in Baby Blue – now that would complete the look!
Destinations so far? Mudgee (not exactly coastal, but oh-so beautiful), South-Coast, Gold Coast. What’s next? Byron, Melbourne, Bondi and more…
We invite you to follow us on the journey as it unfolds. #timneve on instagram

If you follow #timneve on Instagram you will have seen we’ve been busy bees of late unveiling new window displays for retailers around our hometown of Newcastle.
Just in time for new season stock for Spring 2013, we couldn’t help but notice the common thread is the use of on-trend yellow – be it a buttery tone to suggest vintage charm, or acid hued to compliment luxury fashion.

See this blank page? Multiply it by a few hundred and imagine it filled with gorgeously styled interiors and tens of thousands of words to accompany them and you’ll see where my head is currently at!
That’s right, Tim Neve is thrilled to be embarking on a first book publication, due for international release late 2014 with Murdoch Books.
In the spotlight this month at Junction Fair, below
Well we’ve just wrapped up a series of segments at local boutique shopping destination Junction Fair.
Titled Fairs at the Fair, each Tuesday in June we held and hour of inspiration from the local retailers.
With demonstrations on Beauty, Hair, Body and Health – TN enjoyed being on stage to share some entertaining info segments, as well as providing an excuse to stop and warm up on these cold Winter mornings!
Backdrop and branding for the event styled and designed by us, of course too.
If you missed out, don’t worry we’ll be back again later in the year with homewares and fashion for Spring – can’t wait for that!

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.
