IT'S BEGINNING TO LOOK A LOT LIKE CHRISTMAS

The tinsel adorns the shopping malls, the famous Christmas tree fills the Queen Victoria Building, carols are playing in the supermarket and Sydney is putting on its finest beach weather - and it's only November!

With the countdown to Christmas, it is a time to reflect on the year past and simeltaneously frantically finish everything we set out to do this year - in particular for our team, delivering beautiful homes for many of our wonderful clients. 

It is also a time to make that list, check it twice, and decide who has been naughty or nice! We have put together some of our favourite designer gifts for 2016 . . which we hope will provide some inspiration for your family and friends, or yourself. Go on, spoil yourself this Christmas and make it merry and bright!
