Tim Neve Collection for The Herald Newcastle Home Show


It’s only one week until The Herald Newcastle Home Show, where Tim Neve will feature a massive 18m2 stand at the entry to the event!

Find us at Stand #51/52 where TN has handpicked a collection of unique furniture pieces in his signature style.

There’s something for every room of the house, from beds to buffets, lighting, rugs and more.

What’s more, simply place an order during the event from Friday 25th July – Sunday 27th July to receive the special reduced Home Show prices on all items.

Check out the catalogue below to see all the pieces and pricing:



Tim is thrilled to be able to play with all these big furniture pieces, that simply wouldn’t fit in his usual tiny Pop-Up Store! See the full gallery on Pinterest.

He’ll also be hitting the centre stage each day of the event with interior tips and trend advice, as well as giving away back issues and subscriptions to Australian Coastal Home magazine each day.

Have we convinced you to come along yet? Hope to see you there…

Timothy’s at Trelawney Farm


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.

Today we give you a glimpse behind-the-scenes of the shoot, and check out the full gallery of images on Facebook and Pinterest.

TIMOTHY’S Vintage Wares – Pop Up Emporium, NOW OPEN!



Above: the first window display at night.


If you follow TN on instagram you’ll know we’ve been busy bees getting ready to unveil our latest exciting adventure, a pop up store full of vintage goodies in Newcastle, NSW.

Well, finally the time has come to ‘pop up’ and we’d love you to ‘pop in’ – we’ll start trading this weekend, March 14 on Sat-Sun from 10am-4pm.

That means I can now share with you what the colourful and eclectic space looks like… and to give you an idea of the idea behind it’s conception, the Media Release reads:

Situated in the suburb of Islington, by Tim’s account he is now one of about a dozen specialist second-hand dealers within a few blocks, creating a unique shopping precinct.

“Newcastle has definitely been bitten by the vintage bug,” he says “it’s hugely popular for everything from weddings to interiors – and this area is now a real destination for that style”.

Known for his interior design creations for national magazines and local businesses, Neve’s next big project is the release of his first international book in 2015, a hardcover publication with Murdoch Books.

Until then, the pop up shop gives a taste of his quirky aesthetic, mixing rustic, old-school, religious and nautical pieces all handpicked by Tim himself, and available to purchase. Some pieces even feature in the book itself.

 ”I wanted to create an old-fashioned, general store kind of feeling,” Neve explains “You’re greeted by a traditional shopfront with bright green doors, and enter over a classic black and white lino floor. The original pressed tin ceiling in the space is another highlight that dictated the style.”

Taking the formality a step further, Neve has used his full christian name on the building – Timothy’s – to suggest an era when good old fashioned service was offered by local businesses on every street corner.

The small space is filled from floor to ceiling, with enamel industrial pendant lights and educational charts depicting alphabets and farm animals in an appealing retro illustration style hung high.

Clusters of world globes mingle on book shelves alongside industrial tin letters, whilst first aid boxes and old bakers crates can be up-cycled into trendy storage solutions. Every item, although unique, is offered up in multiples – like a bucket of wooden shoe lasts from the 1930′s.

He has also sought out a selection of vintage-inspired homewares and gifts from Australian designers, including Alchemy Candles from Melbourne that hand-pour soy wax into scientific beakers for a distinctive look.

The shop itself is one of a collection in the well known building on the corner of Beaumont Street  and Maitland Road that operated as Herbert’s Picture Theatre in the early half of last century. Tim found it amusing to discover the space he has transformed was once the Candy Bar, which would have offered popcorn through a servery in the back wall of the space.

It also seems a suitable setting, given Neve’s tertiary qualifications include a degree in set and costume design for theatre, from NIDA.
