designersecrets week two!

Well, we are half way through our first two workshops, & we're having a fabulous time! We are so excited to be sharing our secrets & tips with so many fabulous women who are so inspired to create their ideal home interiors, & it is wonderful to be sharing so many plans & dreams with them.

Yesterday we were delighted to have Pam Zelcer, founder, owner & MD of Melbourne Plantation Shutters, present at both of our workshops! She was absolutely fabulous, & after listening to her recount her earliest days in business through to 17 years on, to today, it is easy to understand why her company is such a success. After sharing her extensive knowledge & expertise at the designersecrets workshops, I suspect there will several more orders in the pipeline to add to the already extensive listing of over 25,000 clients.

We love that Melbourne Plantation Shutters is 100% Australian owned & made, & every shutter is individually crafted from Western Red Cedar, the most suitable timber for shutters. This timber is light weight, resin free & provides excellent natural insulative properties. Shutters are an elegant, understated & architectural timeless treatment for any style of window, whether for a traditional Victorian cottage, to the most linear of architecturally streamlined interior spaces.
For anyone wanting to invest in a sophisticated simplicity, I can highly recommend a visit to Melbourne Plantation Shutters so you too can share our excitement for this divine product range. Pam & her team will be delighted to welcome you.
