Mid-century weekend jaunt

My friend Chris, publisher of Australian Modern, is staging a Modernist Architecture and Design (MAD) weekend from 29 June to 1 July in Brisbane. I for one can't wait!

There will be three separate events which make up the MAD weekend.

The first two sessions are design and architecture talks (well-known Brisbane architects, designers and collectors), documentary films about modernism, a twilight cocktail party and dinner on Friday 29 and Saturday 30 June. These events are always a lot of fun and are hosted at Chris and Susan's fabulous mid-century home.

On Sunday 1 July from 10am the much anticipated modern house interiors tour is on! You'll get to visit some fine examples of mid-century Brisbane homes.

I'm a definite for the house tour (loved the last tour) and our babysitter will decide whether Jason and I attend either the Friday night or Saturday session.

There is a cost for each of the events. Bookings are essential to assist catering. Spaces are also strictly limited.

If you want to find out more details or would like to book a spot, contact Chris+Susan (07) 3395 4571 or email


  1. Hello:
    This all sounds too wonderful for words, particularly the house tour which, we are certain, will prove to be hugely interesting and very popular.

    And we do hope that you find a baby sitter for the cocktail party and dinner, or at least for one of them.

  2. I'm going to see if I can dump the kids at a casino somewhere, and come on the house tour!

  3. Ha! I'm sure some kindly person will babysit got now because numbers are seriously limited!! X

  4. Sorry MMMC I need to check my responses for errors!!
    Thanks Jane and Lance, I am hoping our babysitter will be free. xx

  5. Sounds great, pity I'm so far away....

  6. Sounds like fun. If only I was in Brisbane!

    Hey, I met Will Dangar from Robert Plumb the other day and thought of your post on peg baskets. How's your blue and white striped number going? xx

  7. Hope you have fun :)

    Glad to hear you received the Moroccanoil Treatment. Hope you enjoy it :)


  8. Thanks Sarah and B!!

    Pele, I hope you didn't mention his exorbitant peg basket? He makes great letter boxes too. The blue and white peg basket is going strong for the $2 that I spent on it (I keep it for the line under the house) and I found a $5 wire one from Kmart that is the bomb for outside! xx

  9. Ohh how exciting! I was most jealous of those photos from the last tour you posted.

  10. I hope you'll be joining us, Helen??

  11. Fabulous frocks and purple hair. I do love purple hair.

    I think the babysitting gods should definitely take heed and get you sorted for the fri or sat session. Have fun.

  12. I am coming along Anita :)
