Tim Neve ‘Sandcastles: Salavaged Styling Workshop’ at Pottery Barn, Bondi Junction



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.


Saturday March 7, 2pm – 4pm at:


Cnr. Maitland Road and Beaumont Street, Islington NSW 2296

Now trading weekends! Open Fri-Sat-Sun 10am-4pm

Timothy’s Pop-Up Store Re-opening for Spring!




…it’s back!

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

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…
