Autumn Days

If you have just found us.
hello and welcome to Sedonia .

 Follow us on Instagram  to see updates on our new arrivals, offers, sales and competitions 
( there's one just before Mothers Day ).

This month we are happy to finally be enjoying the beautiful autumn weather that's
so unique to Melbourne.
Don't put your bathers away and dig out the woollen throws and doonas for some cold nights.

Give your wardrobe a boost with some new accessories, that's what we love to do. A new pair of boots, a bag , a scarf or a soft new knit.

Bags from Nancy Bird's new range.

Just in store is Ella Sanders beautiful new range of knitwear, Uimi's gorgeous scarves and beanies, 
Elk clothing and St Albans mohair throws. All great work by Melbourne designers. Also new for us is a super soft range of cashmere mix knitwear and scarves that are big on style without the huge price tag . 

As always we have the store jam-packed with gifts and some lovely things for the house.
Some of our recent favourites are the Sandsmade round timber food boxes and side plates paired up with some green Japanese ceramics.
Move things around a bit with the changing season. Add some indoor plants , change your lamptshades, light some candles and enjoy the inside life for a while.

We will also be holding some workshops over the cooler months . 

The first one kicks off on May 14th. 
Make your own terrarium
Work with your hands to create your own mini scape.

This workshop is run by the clever and generous Stefanie Ingram who has run this workshop previously with Megan Morton.
Guided by Stefanie you will learn the art of miniature landscaping. 
This lovely afternoon includes all materials and plants except your vessel ( we will have some available to buy on the day or bring your own) .
Included in the workshop is a delicious afternoon tea.

If you're struggling to find a present for the Mother who has everything ( she seems to!) a voucher for this workshop could be the one.

Talking of afternoon teas and Mother's day we are loving The Pie Project book by 
Phoebe Wood and Kirsten Jenkins.
"these are just really good recipes for the home cook to blow the socks off their friends and family."

 This Grape, honey and marscapone galette looks perfect for right now when there are some beautiful grapes around, 
( we saw some at Pompello the other day).

Happy cooking from all of us at Sedonia!

Spring time at Sedonia

This week At Sedonia we've had a bit of a spring in our step.
Finally there seems to be some nice blue skies and warmer weather.
We've got the door open with some fresh air blowing in as well
as daily deliveries of new exciting stock for the shop.
On Wednesday our lovely local Seddon customers Martine and Jason Cooks house was featured on The Design Files.
We spotted a few of our favourite things from Sedonia. What a beautiful renovation they have done.
Today we opened up some boxes from Marimekko . 
The Rasymatto pattern shown in the photo has been one of Marimekko's strongest and most popular patterns since it was designed in 2009 by Maija Louekari.We've been hoping they would extend this range and now they have!
Pictured below is the new large jug, a plate, the small bowl and sitting under another plate is the apron. 
All available on a continuing basis so you can add to your collection.

Another one of our favourite labels Uashmama has also extended their range to include cosmetic bags, pencil cases , pouches and bags.
We especially love the new woven design in the dark blue, it has an almost leathery feel. The great thing about Uashmama, apart from the washability is the lightness, making these perfect for travelling.

Happy Spring and we look forward to seeing you soon.


Mother's Day

Do Mothers really have eyes in the back of their heads ?

We've been thinking quite a lot lately about our own Mothers and the important women in our lives . What is your favourite memory or thing about your Mother?

What does your Mum like doing? What are her favourite colours? What is her style?

Our mini makeover

We've been a bit quiet on the blog front lately, and I wonder if, like us, you're thinking "where has the year gone?!" Before we know it winter is upon us and we're buckling down for some cosy time indoors doing some of the things we love: cooking, reading and pottering about, and of course spending time with family and friends. 

Cushions and blankets in store to keep you cosy during Winter

Metallic cushion from Spacecraft, black and white cushion from Bonnie + Neil, blankets from St Albans

A selection of Bonnie + Neil printed cushions and a patchwork Citta cushion

Beautifully cosy Mohair throws from St Albans

Just in time for the cooler months we have finished a 'mini makeover' in the shop. Some of you have no doubt already seen the transformation, but if not, do drop past and say hi. We are so delighted to have beautiful natural light pouring through our new skylights, which are actually part of the original building, but were hidden behind a false ceiling for many years. The natural light really gives a sense of spaciousness which we are really loving! 

We've also wallpapered our back wall in our very fancy Piet Hein Eek 'Scrapwood' wallpaper from Holland. This paper is seriously convincing! You have to look closely to tell that what looks like weathered timber panelling, is in fact an illusion. We also have this available for sale in store.
