Sydney trip

This weekend I am heading down to Sydney. I haven't been to Sydney since 2001, in my life before children.  I wonder if much has changed in the city? Is the monorail still chugging along?

Anyway, it just so happens that my trip coincides with the opening of the Danish Design at the House which is part of the 40th anniversary celebrations for the Sydney Opera House. And given that I am the same vintage, it's only fitting that I continue the forty festivities!

Danish Design at the House is a conceptual exhibition that presents a foyer and six windows of Danish design, art and architecture. Think Georg Jensen, Lego, Scanpan, Louis Poulsen and Bang & Olufsen - all of my favourite things and more! The exhibition is free and is on until 11 November.

While in Sydney, I will also be visiting a few modernist homes which I am thrilled to be seeing in the flesh. On the list is Jack House in Wahroonga, Rose Seidler House and a Beachcomber project house in Avalon. I'm very much looking forward to getting my fix of house porn this weekend. Yay!

If you want to join me on my trip, make sure to follow me on instagram here. I promise not to take snapshots of food, okay?


  1. I will eagerly follow your adventures, even if you take pictures of food! Have fun and tell us all about it.

  2. Oh, so jealous!! Have a fab time and take tonnes of photos!!! X

  3. What an awesome weekend you're going to have!

  4. Ummm, the monorail doesn't exist anymore. It might have changed just a tad since 2001. But it's still a pretty city. I'll try to hold off any bad weather for you even though we desperately need the rain. There's a food and wine festival in Wahroonga on Sunday if you need to take some photos of food. Have a great time checking out the houses. You'll be on my side of bridge. xx

  5. Have fun on your trip. Have yet to join this instagram thing... but hopefully you will blog about it!

  6. Oooh have fun and please share when you get back. mel x

  7. Now I understand the trip! Did you organise it yourself or is it a tour? My husband recently saw an ad for a tour of some of FLW's buildings and suggested I go! As if money were no object. I hope you have a whale of a time!
