204/366 [1910-1939]

Ten points if you immediately recognised Art Deco. Spent a glorious couple of hours wandering around the latest exhibition at the National Gallery. I love getting the iPod audio commentary and then just losing myself in the displays. Total treat today – clothing from Chanel and Lanvin, glassware by Rene Lalique, jewellery by Cartier. And just so much more. Many of these stunning objects were completely contemporary and would look utterly up to date in the most minimalist setting. If you’re in Melbourne and you love design, get yourself down to St Kilda Road for a perfectly lovely time.
