The other day, I noticed a particularly stylish woman walking through a store. What made me notice her, was her unbelievably chic shoes. As she lolled about the fitting rooms, assisting with her friend’s fashion dilemmas, I literally had an internal argument with myself that went something like this –
should I ask her where her shoes are from?
No, don’t do that you loser!
But, I really want to know
I know you want to know, but people hate it when you ask them things like that
Please, let me just ask her quickly
No, you’ll just embarrass yourself and then it will be really, really awkward
So, after losing this argument with myself, I watched her and her shoes leave forever. Enter The Design Files Open House concept, which relieves the need for crazy internal dialogues…in an interior sense anyway. Set up like a real home, everything in it is available for purchase, from the couch down to the bedlinen. That’s right – you don’t even have to consider awkwardly asking where something is from. If you’re in Melbourne, you really must check it out – from Thursday November 29th to December 2nd. x
