Well I know it’s been a bit Melbourne Melbourne Melbourne around here recently, but as it happens, today we have another little Melbourne retail story!  Sorry dudes, I can’t help it if a cute new shop opens in Melbourne every 5 minutes!  (Sydney-siders, I am open to submissions, please keep me in the loop!)

Mynd Interiors is a sweet new home and lifestyle store in the bayside suburb of Mentone, which opened just 6 weeks ago.  After many years working in fashion, proprietor Sarah Shannon was ready for a change, and took a leap of faith, following her dream of opening her own homewares store in October this year.

The shop is a bright white contemporary space, full to the brim with vivid pattern and COLOUR!  Sarah is a great supporter of emerging local creatives, and stocks work by many of the designers we’ve covered here on TDF this year, including Lumiere Art & Co, Curio & Curio, The Family Love Tree and more.  Just another friendly reason to shop local this Christmas…!

    Karen, I don’t know if I would call Mentone “The big smoke”. Lucy often features beautiful homes and talent outside of Melbourne. Keep up the good work TDF!

    I was thrilled as a local Bayside resident to see this gorgeous store open in Mentone. I have already treated myself to 2 cushions and some other indulgent goodies at Mynd and think it just what this area needs!! :)

    Walked past this store last night on the way to eat at the corner store, well, couldn’t stop looking at all the things in the window wishing the shop was open. I live in WA and don’t have time to get there during opening hours before flying out so I’m definitely looking forward to the website that I could possible phone order through!! Particularly those gorgeous little colored cups that were at the front!! Congrats on opening a gorgeous little shop. I will definitely be going for a shop there next time I’m in melb.
