DesignEX Cancelled for 2015 In a surprising  decision for 2015 DesignEX the Australian design communities industry trade show has taken the decision to cancel the 2015 show. Interior designers and architects has travelled to the show that alternates between Sydney and Melbourne to source new products and trends. I do have to say that at the 2014 show when I attended I was unable to take any photos.  I felt this was a bad decision at the time as I was unable to promote to my community on social media any of the products or companies I found.

[tps_header] Eating Out In Sydney: Woolwich Pier Hotel Over the weekend I had a desire for a steak! We don’t eat much red meat in our house with a vegetarian who eats chicken so when my young Miss was at a party we ventured to our local pub Woolwich Pier Hotel. As we waited for our dinner with a few drinks this time sitting in the bar stool along a long share bench, I got the opportunity to take in the bar.  The subway tiling that had been used stood out to me, maybe that's because I’m trying to make up my mind...

The existing bathroom had no windows so artificial light was used to illuminate the space and the client had a dislike for grout so seamless pieces of Corian were applied to the walls. The bathroom features a free-standing bath, double basins and separate shower.  Rimadesio glass sliding...
