An event that will be hard to beat.

March 18, 2022

We are excited to announce we’ve partnered up for an Instagram-lover’s perfect collaboration with CASA by Kate Nixon, interiors editor of Australian House & Garden magazine, for our Debut Sydney Book Signing of ‘Living Well By Design’ on April 5. If you can manage to take your eyes off the dramatic peeled plaster archways and artisanal details winking at you from every corner of the dazzlingly beautiful new CASA, the book signing promises to be an evening that will be hard to beat.

Melissa will answer every question you have – closing the gap between where you are with your house and where you want it to be.
