crate expectations...

Don't you just love a shop where there are gorgeous new items every time you visit, you can always find the perfect gift, and you feel at home when you walk through the door? Crate Expectations in Malvern is a favourite haunt of Joy's for all these reasons, and over the 15 months she has lived in Melbourne she has visited often! Here are a few photos to give you a feel for the shop... make sure you put it on your "to do" list when you are next in Melbourne.

So much to see, so little time!

These beautiful blues brought a touch of the seaside to a cold Melbourne day.

This display would be perfect for a hallway. The light shining through those bottles and vases was stunning.

We loved this classic sofa piled high with colourful cushions in the window.

Unexpected colour combinations are so inspiring.

Beautiful packaging in glass bowls.

Colourful baby toys with personality!

A divine choice of pampering products and candles.

As soon as I saw that first image I crossed all my fingers and toes hoping it would be in Brisbane. Oh well, it just gives me one more reason to go to Melbourne!

Thank you so much for posting these gorgeous photos. This is one of our beautiful stockists and I haven't seen the store yet - it's a treasure trove!
