Tray Display

Sometimes the use of a beautiful tray can anchor a vignette perfectly. Interesting and beautiful items are framed when placed on a tray. They become an orderly, stylised picture which tells it's own little story.

Small collectables deserve their own stage. What better platform than a pretty silver tray!

Books can be stacked inviting house members to peruse their pages as they relax on the sofa.

Shop Quintessence Sydney for beautiful range of trays from rattan to pewter and painted timber.

Mint Coloured Glasses

We are all about making your table look gorgeous this Spring. The simplest little vessels with a sprig of something from the garden can make the prettiest arrangements. unaffected and relaxed.

Use a collection of coloured glass in different shapes and sizes to create this effect.

Throw over a rumpled linen table cloth and set the table in the garden.

Shop Quintessence Sydney for a range of coloured glass from Collect Home and beautiful table linens from Bianca Lorrene. Ask our staff for ideas about how to create the perfect table setting for your spring soiree.

Happy Spring!!!

Kim and I went to the Elk showing some months ago now and fell in love with the entire range. Everything was so beautiful, but also SO wearable. The silk pieces made us melt. They provide the perfect backdrop to the many gorgeous, wood, resin and silver pieces in the Elk accessories range.

Best of all we swooned over this silk tank dress which is due to arrive any day now. We have ordered it in black, sage and navy. The rope woven necklace is just perfect with it. It has already sold out in both stores so we have re-ordered. Elk has done it again! Simple! Stylish! and truly truly gorgeous this year.

Shop Quintessence Lindfield and Northbridge. We are constantly re-ordering from this range. It's just so good!! x Kell and Kim
