All beautiful coastal pieces from Island Collections

A huge thank you to the gorgeous and talented stylist Ruth Welsby for featuring us in the Home section of 'Savvy Shopper' as part of the M magazine in THE AGE.  She has effortlessly created a beautiful feel of the cool tropics not only in her styling but in her detailed descriptions, which immediately evokes a feeling of coastal tranquility and palm-fringed beaches. Roll on Summer!

We love what she wrote at the end of the article..."Splashes of coral, copper and teal infuse the scheme with a vintage style, evoking memories of endless summer holidays, but with tropical interiors, everyday can feel like a holiday!"

Hope you all had a lovely weekend and thank you once again Ruth.

These two photos were sent in by our lovely customer Ann who resides on the stunning Derwent River in Hobart. We delight in customers sending us their styling projects and the cluster of shells from Island Collections looks beautiful in front of her stunning sea green vintage vase. Thankyou for sharing.

Hope everyone had a lovely weekend.

Dreaming of the Bahamas!

Domaynes latest Summer look book inspired by the Bahamas is gorgeous! Love it, love it love! Much of it was styled by the talented Shannon Fricke, who we are obsessed with at the moment. We would love to attend her workshops held in Melbourne this week!

We have our very own gorgeous Bahamas Parrot at Island Collections. Just click on him and he'll take you directly to our online shop.

Palm Tree Motifs Everywhere!

The latest Australian Vogue Living blog has inspired us for all things palm frond and palm tree inspired. Isn't the wallpaper beautiful. We would love a feature wall in this...although not sure we could persuade our island hubbies!  hmmmm...a work in progress.

At Island Collections we have your palm tree obsessions covered!
