Black is black

Fallow is one of the most interesting and beautiful shops I have seen anywhere. Natalie, a lovely friend from my fashion past, created her shop in 2008. She scours the world for beautiful things outside the mainstream…mostly black.

The shop is exquisite…take a look.





There are many covetable items to be found in Fallow.




The elegant interior is all the more amazing when you see what they started with. The space was the office of a mild mannered accountant before it was completely transformed.


A couple of things were retained…the fabulous wallpaper…


…and the old phone, which still works.


Fallow is one of the most elegant I have seen anywhere in the world, and it is in my hometown, Brisbane.

Drop in and say hello to Natalie and her team at Fallow.

Level 1, Cameron House.
