A local Gem...

Paddock and Vine in Mona Vale If you're heading up to the Northern beaches, Paddock and Vine Restaurant and Wine bar in Mona Vale is an absolute must. Paddock and Vine opened in 2017 and specialises in rustic wholesome food, and while the food is nothing short of outstanding, it is the restaurant fit-out, design and ambiance that caught our attention. They have taken a very rustic and industrial approach to the design scheme, teaming beautiful copper light fit-outs with timber panels and textured walls. With a collection of beautifully designed seating furniture and handmade ceramics to match.    We for one can definitely vouch for the food, we have lost count of the amount of times we have dined...

Here at Electric Eyes, we are big on ethical, sustainable and environmentally friendly living and being a homewares brand we believe this mantra should also extend to the home, which is why we choose Faux Fur.  While the reasons for this choice seem clear, it comes down to the simple fact that over 50 million animals are being killed each year for their fur!!!!!, which should be enough to turn anyone off purchasing a fur item.  However, we do understand, from a design perspective, many value fur because of its inherent style, look and feel.  But not to worry because we do have a cruelty free option that doesn’t compromise quality or style – ‘Faux Fur.’ And THANK GOODNESS because...

Styled Shoot: Ocean St, Narrabeen

What do you get when you take over one of your all time beach front abodes right around the corner from your flagship retail store........you get magic, and that's exactly what we got when we took over a stunning home on Ocean St, Narrabeen and filled it with our wares!  We hit the upstairs open plan master bedroom which contains the most drop-dead gorgeous ensuite with one super sexy matt white egg bath, floor to wall stone tiling, and frameless glass shower screen...not to mention the automatic bathroom vanity mirror which acts as the master bed head, we're 100% serious. We adorned the bathroom with our Savannah Turkish Towels, Barro Baskets and 100% Soy Wax Candle in Wave Rider.....how fitting! ...

We show you a few of our favourite finds and installation ideas for the hanging pendant.      Beach industrial chic with these stunning rattan lampshade style basket pendants hung just at the right height to pull focus on that ah-maz-ing recycled timber dining table.
