I have been trawling Instagram for some design inspiration, and envying the many interior designer feeds. Majority of the feeds are filled with images of ‘Scandi’ design or more commonly known Scandinavian design. There is something relaxing and peaceful about Scandinavian homewares, it must be the muted colour palette or the soft textures and simple lines that makes me want to bolt under the doona covers and chill in bed all day.
The other day I heard about a new homewares store opening up in a quiet corner of East Perth, I just had to check it out for myself as their instagram feed was inviting me over for a friendly stalk. Why stalk on social media when you can go in a meet the face behind the small biz?
Arrival Hall is the newly renovated real estate space transformed into a delightful shop filled with natural light and gorgeous ‘Scandi’ items. It was my mini-escape to enjoy a bit of retail therapy after work in the city. The Arrival Hall also stocks homewares for children and babies, it was the extra large Miffy light that caught my eye!
I had a quick chat with Lisa, the pharmacist turned shop owner who brought this concept to Perth. Together with her husband, Clement they run this beautiful space. And of course, not forgetting their cute furbaby, Lexie who I got lots of attention from and in return gave her affectionate belly rubs. What a great little assistant. I felt so welcomed in their space (and it is also technically their home, because they live upstairs! How amazing that situation would cut their travel time to work by 100%).
I was pleasantly surprised to see designer Normann Copenhagen dustpan and brush, it was just too good to look at let alone use! Then again, if my cleaning tools looked that chic I would be more motivated to start on the chores… wouldn’t you? If you are in Perth, you will have to drop in and take a look for yourselves. The price range is surprisingly very affordable, and it’s great to know that it shouldn’t cost your whole fortnightly paycheck to achieve a designer looking home.
