Raft Red Room Friday 13th.

Raft Studio threw a little Black Friday shindig last week on the 13th.  A swell night it was and we all seemed to gravitate towards the RED ROOM. Well it was very glamorous.

Thank you Stasia & Edward for the spooky fun times.

The great Cup Day Garden Party.

The first Tuesday in November, means but one thing in our beautiful village of Melbourne.  Yes we all get a holiday to celebrate a horse race.  So if not heading out to the track at Flemington its great to have an invitation to a Garden Party.  Our wonderful friends Dee Dee & Steve, seen above, issued such an invitation, so in the glorious Spring sunshine we lunched on their front lawn along with a jolly bunch of  well cheered revellers.  And not a horse in sight.

Cheers for a smashing carnival like Cup Day Garden Party.

Dainty Sichuan-Lonsdale Street. New work.

The Dainty Sichuan restaurant group has called again with another restaurant opened in Melbourne CBD.  This time it is on Lonsdale Street and they have chosen to work on a set of copper hued panels.  The warm rich glow of the Copper Dutch leaf is a pleasure to work with.

And now here they are.  Installed and looking amazing in these two private dining niches

Grab yourself some delicious sizzling Sichuan fare and admire the scenery as created by Mr Brown at the latest Dainty Sichuan, 
149 Lonsdale Street, Melbourne.
