A home’s look is never really finished. It’s a constant work in progress, as your tastes and needs evolve. Even with a concerted effort, it can take years to bring a room close to the idealised, magazine-ready version in your head. But then, isn’t that part of the fun? There’s always the next thing to research, track down and acquire. Or better yet, stumble on serendipitously. Here are our favourite spots in Sydney for finding beautiful tableware, furniture, plants, bed linens and more.
