Bathroom Design

We cannot stress enough on the fact that how a house comes together as a combination of modules. These modules include many different parts of the house such as the living room, drawing room, bedrooms, and many others as well. The bathrooms, however, is an important area of our house and is the one in which we can personalize to our will. With beautiful finishes and innovative technology, the bathrooms are parts of the house where small details matter no matter how small they are. It is important to plan for your bathroom designs. So, let Melbourne Interior Design Studio get into how bathroom designs are supposed to cater things to them. First things first, this is as technical as any other part of the house whether it be the kitchen, the bedroom, or any other, so it’s highly suggested to pay more attention since this is something that is very personal to everyone.   As we suggested before, designing a bathroom has two ways to go about it. One is to start from scratch and build everything from the very get-go. Another way is to look at existing ideas and start working from there. Where many opt for the latter option and work on existing ideas, there are many who go for the option of designing everything themselves. As we said, the littlest of details matter as much as the bigger ones. It’s important to say that the when it comes to deciding the color scheme of the room, it’s essential that the color is such that it doesn’t wear away with time. And most of all, it’s important that you select a color scheme that doesn’t look dirty or unclean. For the best color schemes, be sure to check out some of the already available designs to make…

Invitation to ‘Falling Blue (after A. Martin)’ by Ceara Metlikovec




Small Spaces would like to invite you to ‘Falling Blue (After A. Martin)’, an exhibition by Sydney based artist Ceara Metlikovec.

A graduate of the National Art School, Sydney, and the College of Fine Arts, UNSW, Ceara uses line on paper as a form of abstract expression through which to channel her emotion. Ceara says:

‘After reading the book Agnes Martin. Paintings, Writings, Remembrances by Arne Glimcher, I became intrigued by the way Agnes Martin used line to convey emotion.

” The art work becomes a chart that allows the viewer… to share the artist’s response to interior states.” ‘

We are thrilled to share with you a new body of work by Ceara that explores her direct emotional response to music. Ceara explains:

‘I began work by listening to music on a loop – not trusting myself to access my emotional memory on my own. By the time I began the fourth blue piece, I was no longer conscious of the music playing. I was now an instrument that could “chart” my “interior states”, like a seismograph records rumbles from deep in the earth.’

We hope you can join us for this exciting exhibition.

Invitation to ‘Functional Objects’ by Keiko Matsui

Functional Objects’ by Keiko Matsui

Wednesday 9th of September – Wednesday 30th September

Small Spaces would like to invite you to ‘Functional Objects’, an exhibition by ceramicist Keiko Matsui.

Born and raised in Japan, Keiko’s work is deeply grounded in her Japanese heritage and culture, each work sensitively illustrating her dedication to simple beauty in the objects that we use everyday.

‘Functional Objects’ introduces new work from three ongoing series, each intended to engage and connect with the user in a playful and sculptural way. Keiko explains:

‘My works explore the relationship between the objects themselves and the spaces between them. It is my intent to create sensitive and meditative atmospheres – calm and tranquil spaces – to also pursue corresponding notions of silence.

I wish that each object creates a visual conversation with the viewer, which is both poetic and contemplative.’

Keiko will be speaking about her work from 2pm on Sunday 13 September. We are very excited to present this exhibition and talk by such an extraordinary artist as part of Sydney Contemporary 2015.

We hope you can join us.

At last…

Small Spaces has a web store!!! I’m sure there will be a few glitches as the learning curve has been steep so I thank you in advance for your patience. To celebrate we’re offering free delivery within Australia for the first month.

As many of the pieces are hand made and therefore unique, the biggest challenge will be keeping the store up to date. Please know that I’ll be doing my best and if ever you have any concerns please don’t hesitate to contact me on or at the store

Of course no virtual experience is as satisfying as it’s physical equivalent however in this age of interconnections I’ve been thinking about how to make it as full an experience as possible for those who can’t get to the store.

So I’ve had an idea I’d like to trial..PERSONAL SHOPPING VIA SKYPE!

Here’s how I think it might work. Email me to arrange a time and send your Skype address. I’ll call via Skype at the time and then take you on a personal tour of the shop and current stock. It won’t take long as the shop is not very big. It would be as close as possible to the in store experience (right down to Bunny chasing skateboards in the background and perhaps people sitting around drinking tea) You could ask questions along the way and place an order at the end if you wished.

Regardless, I hope you enjoy your experience of Small Spaces no matter what form it takes.
