Tell us a bit about you and what you do:
In conjunction with my husband Gerard Walsh, we own and operate Sorrento Furniture from our premises at 10 Bennetts Rd, Mornington.
Specialising in custom made lounge furniture, it is always exciting completing and installing a brand new piece for happy clients. It never, ever grows old. A few weeks ago the brand new furniture and homeware store, Windswept Designs opened in Sorrento. We were fortunate enough to be asked to have several of our pieces in their showroom. So, now Sorrento Furniture is finally in Sorrento. Insert happy dance here!
Describe your style:
Eclectic. My style is definitely eclectic with my look changing daily, I like to mix it up a bit! Love layers, bargain finds, and animal prints. You can never
have too much leopard, snake print or shoes, but no matter what I wear it has to be comfortable and accessorised. I actually don't think it's possible
to over accessorise!
Do you think Mornington Peninsula style/fashion has a certain look or feel?
Mornington Peninsula definitely has a relaxed, holiday vibe to it, but it is at its heart, eclectic, which isprobably why I feel so at home here. Casual, down at the beach style can be seen walking alongside colourful Race Day designer vibrancy, corporates and of course, active wear addicts - you know who you are! How many places do you get to see those looks together?
What are a couple of your favourite blogs or websites and why?
I admit it. I am storage/organising obsessed at home. I simply adore a good tip on organising or a storage solution. Where else would I go but Pinterest? On a side note - Pinterest owes me hours of my life back! I also surf on into the website www.staycalmgetorganised.com.au for some useful tips on organising and storage
as well as loads of useful tips for everyday.
Can you tell us one or two of your fave local spots?
Assaggini Wine and Tapas Bar Mornington is a favourite haunt of ours mid week. Good food, good wine list, great staff. Provincia Food Store, Safety Beach. I Spend every second night at this magnificent Deli, Food Store or as I like to call it - Heaven!
Absolute, hands down favourite coastal walk to date, starting at the Fingal Picnic Ground, down to Fingal Beach, head towards Gunamatta, return via the bush coastal walk. I ached by the time we had finished, but worth every sore step. Scenery was amazing! Absolutely amazing!
