Consider yourself an 'interiors addict'? Or maybe you're far from it and want to learn all there is to know about interior design, art and locally made artisan products to really add some pizazz to your home? Either way, these tours are for you, and one where you're sure to learn more than a thing or two as you'll uncover the secrets of where designers shop, hidden treasures and 'lesser-known secret spots' for interior design.
The half-day tours will see you expertly guided to four mystery Interior Design Destinations; hidden secrets that are treasure troves to interior designers! These four destinations are home to "warehouse bargains", clearance stores, outlets for products for renovations, artworks, exotic furniture and 'to die for' interior homewares made by local artisans, craftmakers, painters and photographers.
Whether you're renovating, redesigning or even on the hunt for beautiful bespoke gifts for Christmas, this tour won't leave you short on inspiration (as well as a couple of shopping bags filled with goodies thanks to discounts on offer!).
However, this is not merely a shopping extravaganza. The tour will also include practical advice and knowledge from guest speakers, such as local artisans and a renowned WA artist, who will guide you through how to choose, where to buy and how to hang artworks in your home. Established interior designer Simone Gillespie will also be the guide throughout the tour and will talk you through how to style and decorate your home to professional standards.
To maintain energy levels and keep with the 'mystery' theme, the Fremantle tours will include either a coffee and cake stop (morning tour) or bar/snack stop (afternoon tour), to some of Perth's best kept, secret cafes and cool Hip bars. It wouldn't be a trip to the iconic Port city without some seriously good coffee, cake or tipple after all!
For a fun way to discover Perth in a way you may not have considered before, while gaining valuable insights into all things art and interior design, meet new people, connect with suppliers and store owners and track down the bargains for your renovations, this tour is not to be missed. Be sure to book soon as spaces are limited.
