MELBSTYLE MEDIA - REVIEWS
That's right - THE New York Times paid us a visit. How did they find melbournestyle? These New Yorkers... they don't miss a trick! What did they find in store? For full article on melbourne click here NYT Style Magazine Totally Aussie in Melbourne or jump direct to the article DESIGN WITHIN REACH
"Here is much more than a store, it is a history lesson, a celebration of all that is uniquely Victorian (including Ned Kelly), somewhere to lose yourself and delight in the sheer creativity on offer (tasteful creativity, of course, in true Melbourne style). It makes souvenir places seem very tacky in comparison. On Clarendon Street South Melbourne, it's the first and only experience of its kind. A visit to Melbournestyle is a must do." - extract from RACV's 101 Best things to do in Victoria
"THIS MELBOURNE MECCA IS BANISHING THE CULTURAL CRINGE WITH ITS BEAUTIFUL AND UNIQUE INTERPRETATIONS OF AUSTRALIAN ICONOGRAPHY."
- HOME BEAUTIFUL magazine
"IF YOU LOVE THIS FABULOUS CITY OR ARE LOOKING FOR THE PERFECT SOUVENIR....."
- HOMESPUN magazine
"There are no flippant inclusions.Everything has a reason for being - a connection to Melbourne or Melbourne people who are doing something special."
- MELBOURNE LIVING Magazine, August 2009
Thanks to the fabulous people at Melbourne Living magazine for their tribute to our tribute to Melbourne.
"E' negozio e galleria questo spot avviato con successo dall'artista Maree Coote, specializzato esattamente nel Melbourne style: arte, moda e oggettistica, tutto disegnato e realizzato in citta."

We also had a visit from JAPAN-VIC.TOURISM Inbound Shopping Guide. This well-researched industry handbook is the ultimate resource for inbound Japanese tour operators, and features melbournestyle as its lead store, while its cover features our legendary Melbourne Cups and Saucers. They even named it after us! Domo Arigatoo Gozaimasu! (Not available to local Aussie shoppers - but you don't need it - you already know where we are, right? )
Meanwhile, back here at home, since they first found us in Home Beautiful , the Home Beauties have visited time and again with their fab shoping tours (see below).
HOME BEAUTIFUL has listed melbournestyle in the legendary STYLE HUNTER Shopping Guide...So you can grab a copy (free with the latest issue) and visit us along with all the other top-shoppable spots in Melbourne in one go. Look forward to seeing you in your safari suits soon.
Thanks to the gorgeous gals at Home Beautiful - we are very chuffed to be included in their guide. See you soon.

NEW AND FABULOUS IN THE CAPITAL CITY OF STYLE
"I LIKE NONSENSE, IT WAKES UP THE BRAIN CELLS. FANTASY IS A NECESSARY INGREDIENT IN LIVING. IT'S A WAY OF LOOKING AT LIFE THROUGH THE WRONG END OF A TELESCOPE. WHICH IS WHAT I DO. AND THAT ENABLES YOU TO LAUGH AT LIFE'S REALITIES.." - Dr Seuss
