New fine dining Japanese restaurant, Esora. That  ‘painting in the sky’ in Japanese, and this calm, elegant and sensorial space befits the name perfectly.

Love this modern, gender-neutral nursery (belonging to Paper n’ Stitch blogger Brittni Mehlhoff) and all the contemporary art is especially a good time. It manages to balance calming and neutral with colourful and fun, and that’s not the easiest harmony to master.

A simple Melbourne grab-and-go coffee and lunch spot given a beautiful European espresso-bar look by Studio Esteta. Love this sangria colour and the reeded glass panels giving privacy to the kitchen.

The family home of creative couple Lara and Matt Fell, founders of fashion label St. Agni. You can really see the St Agni aesthetic in their Byron Bay home – simple but great quality, laid-back but classy, with a palette of neutrals, plenty of sunlight and layers of natural textures.

I just really (really really) love these slightly wonky tiles. Don’t you?
