inside the simply beautiful papaya, mosman

P1120803

When the team from Papaya invited me for an exclusive tour of their Mosman store last week, it’s safe to say I was a little beside myself. I’ve been a longtime fan of the brand, always rather fond of their contemporary designs and use of raw materials. When I stepped into the interior of this North Sydney oasis, it was like being transported into another universe, where I lost my mind in the best way possible and am not certain I have it back yet.

1 | I got invited for an exclusive store tour of Papaya in Mosman at the weekend and had a stunning time snapping their wares. What might surprise you is how many cute toys they have for kids (or big kids who love a playful home!). My fave creatures had to be these plush bunnies – hanging out in a basket by the Papaya courtyard. Store tour pics coming this week!

1 | You may call it a rusty old bird cage, but I call this beauty – that I snapped at Halchemy Design in Newtown – the things vintage dreams are made of.

I recommend ordering an intervention in advance!

1 | What does one do on a Saturday morning once they’ve watched their recorded home decorating shows? They go vintage store shopping, of course (you know I love me some second hand finds)! I made the treck to Vinnies in Brookvale to see what preloved treasures I could uncover and came across this little beauty. I have some tips on second-hand shopping come up this week, with more finds like this one included.

1 | I’m kind of in love with these Converse sneakers from Topman. They’re a camel and red dream. If only they belonged to me (they’re the property of my lucky boyfriend). I can’t even wear them because he’s one size larger (first world problem!). Still, you can leave them lying around the house because they look pretty decorative – bonus!
