Last week I promised to tell you more about Marti Portfolio in Malvern. What a find. Gallery, interior design, jewellery and fashion. All managed by interior designer Mimi Marti. Mimi has many years experience in interior design, but began her career in fashion. Both of these interests are in evidence at Marti Portfolio. She keeps an eye on local artists so she’s able to mount three exhibitions a year, Antonio Villella (Healesville) being the latest. She sourced Robert Wynne’s glassware (below) from Sydney.
This knitwear by Michael Glover is too gorgeous for words. The wrap on the right can be pinned, flicked and wrapped in lots of different ways. The pieces all lend themselves to layering and add something really special to an outfit when you feel like you need something to lift your spirits. I’ve had one of his wraps for many years…I still love it…his knitwear is timeless.
Mimi’s husband, wholesales the gorgeous Mondaine watches from Switzerland. Their design is based on Swiss railway clocks. They’re funky, classy and Swiss. What more could you want in a wristwatch?
Mimi’s face lights up when she talks about working with clients to create beautiful, ‘lived in’, home environments. She’s one of those people who loves her work…it shows in everything she does.
