Do you need help with last minute Christmas shopping? Are you needing a gorgeous little feature item to spice up your room? Are you a lover of all things monochrome? Want a gift for someone special that won’t break the bank? Look no further than the Design Depot for one of a kind finds.
The Design Depot, started by Megan Abbott a couple months ago, is an online home décor treasure chest based in Adelaide. The site showcases talented local and interstate small businesses, and these unique items might not be found anywhere else. “People have all sorts of skills and talents and I want to show that,” she says. Right on girl.
A few of the items handpicked by Megan include dreamy candles, groovy coasters, and abstract prints. “I basically pick the products that I like and would style in my own home,” she says. “At the moment I’m loving the granite concrete candles by ‘concrete and candles’ – they smell delicious.” Not to mention, this creative gal has hand painted a few prints and coasters herself, which means you have to get in quick as once these goodies are sold they’re gone for good.
Our personal favourite was the ‘Wanderlust’ print (featuring in the header), a simple yet beautiful piece created by the Lovely Ink Co for ‘the dreamers who dream of faraway places’ (because don’t we all). The Design Depot also currently stocks goodies from VanillaBean and Hunting Louise, both from Sydney.
Megan is an interior design wiz - and she’s got the hot tip for those wanting to play around with new looks this season. “Blush and baby pink are currently in but it’s not for everyone, also definitely tribal prints and mud cloth,” she says.
Exciting things are happening at the Design Depot in the 2017 – Megan is aiming to really step it up a notch and stock more variety of items. “I also want to focus on the small business’ we have here in Adelaide and what kind of people we have hidden on our doorstep,” she says.
Check out the Design Depot here and like them on Facebook for new stock and online competitions. If you’re a small business wanting to get in touch with the Design Depot contact Megan at Megan@thedesigndepotsa.com.au.
