The latest project of one of my all-time-fave interior architects, Hecker Guthrie. Piccolina is a legit gelateria in Melbourne’s Collingwood, channelling 1950’s Southern Italy. Fave bits: the deepdeep green grid tiling, the original terrazzo floor, the huge wooden letterboard menu, and that archway in the wall – an original part of the historic building – and the colour palette of the brand, pulled from the Italian flag. That central bar/counter houses 24 stainless tubs of 24 artisan gelato flavours
Brand by – so as far as I can tell – Melbourne graphic design studio Projects of Imagination.
Loving the work of Melbourne maker Tantri Mustika (on Insta, @tantrimustikaceramics) – a modern spin on terrazzo tiling
Super nice branding and packaging (by Pearlfisher) for the world’s first true non-alcoholic distilled spirit. Served in over 100 Michelin-starred restaurants and top cocktail bars, and now available in New Zealand from our friends at Cook & Nelson.
Be still my minimalist heart – handwash and hand cream (they do laundry care liquid too) from Australian brand Ms Brown.
I’ve shared the other Fonda Mexican eateries with you in years past – they’re always at the bleeding edge of interior design. This is Fonda’s newest outpost and the first outside of their hometown Melbourne – Fonda Bondi. (That sounds fun on your tongue!)

Ypperlig mirror by Danish design legends Hay for IKEA. Only around $40-50 and I’M HERE FOR IT. Also comes in an Arch shape, in green, which is highly relevant to my current interests.
