Safari Living Online Store - and Missoni Giveaway!

The Ken towel range from Safari Living - bold multi-coloured with black and white stripe reverse and soft woven banding. The bath mat (top) is a super thick pure cotton - made in Italy.

So you ALL KNOW how much I love Safari Living... Melbourne's gorgeous little corner store design Mecca in High st, Prahran East? It is truly the most delectable, perfectly edited range of local and internationally sourced homewares and textiles under one roof... well worth a trip over the river if you're a Northsider like me! (I posted some pics of the store back here...) BUT if you aren't close by, don't forget that you can now SHOP ONLINE with Safari Living!

Yessirree. The internet just got way more interesting - and dangerous! :)

Do pop over and check out the online store, and show your support for this brilliant local retailer! Safari's owner Felicity is just the loveliest lady and has been so supportive of The Design Files since we met last year... and today I am very pleased to welcome Safari Living as my newest site sponsor!

You might remember that Felicity was generous enough to offer one of her gorgeous Missoni Towels for my Christmas giveaway... and guess what... TODAY she's offering a stunning Missoni 'Ken' Bath Mat (60 x 90cm), and 2 x matching hand towels (40 x 70cm) for one lucky reader!

Oh my! Are they not the most beautiful, lush bathroom towels you have ever SEEN?!

Please leave a comment here before midnight tonight (Tuesday) to be in the running. The winner will be selected at random and will be announced here tomorrow!

Huge thanks to all the lovely ladies at Safari (Felicity, Belinda, Natalie!) for this wonderful prize! Such loveliness. x

Please note the competition how now closed! Thanks so much for all your entries and stay tuned tomorrow for the winner announcement!

More gorgeous things from the Safari Living online store... (previously blogged here!)

  58. Gosh, are you kidding? I would love a bit of Missoni in my life!

    ReplyDelete
  59. I spent yesterday redying the black Missoni bathmat that my mum spilt bleach on last week in a cleaning disaster. I think considering the bathmat has had such a tough week it would really appreciate some new friends, particularly ones as attractive as Ken. Not that the bathmat is shallow but it does tend to like to stick to hanging around with textiles of a similar background. They compliment each other!

  111. oh I love SAFARI LIVING...
    I like to go and visit the shop often.. the only thing is im a uni student (studying interior decoration and design) so i cannot afford any of the fabulous products. it is very tempting to spend all of next months rent in there tho.
    i think the missoni products would really liven up my dull bathroom. SO PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE choose me.

    ps. your blog brings a smile to my face everyday. keep up the inspiring work.

  112. Driving past Safari is always a visual treat even if I don't have time to stop I have time to look from the outside.
    The Missoni towels often displayed in the side windows are my favourite items in the shop. So many beautiful colours and patterns and designs. Love them.
    A few years ago Felicity donated some towels to my kids primary school fundraiser, but I was outbid the Silent Auction. Damn!

    ReplyDelete
  113. Oh dear, my little housie is in DESPERATE need of some fabulous Missoni eye candy in the bathroom. It's the only thing that could possibly draw the eye away from those horrid 70's mosaics and faux timber cabinetry. I have my fingers and toes all crossed!
