buzz : An intimate and peaceful bush setting with the best selection of design, interiors and art magazines in the region, make this a favourite locations to extend my margin of leisure.  Max Ball and Penny Hudson have created an enviable lifestyle business; a model I aspire to when I grow up.  A contemporary shed, designed by ex-architect Max, sits discreetly in three acres of bush; kangaroo paws, sheok and grass trees are an arm's length from the outdoor cafe area. Natural light pervades the gallery and shop space, where Penny 's paintings and Max's jewellery and objects are exhibited, along with design books, art supplies, and products from Mud ceramics, Mozi, and Tonic
The cafe is simple, so as to complement rather than divert attention away from the gallery.  Sweet bits are baked at Cookies Galore in Margaret River, the coffee is organic and smooth, and tea is served in a fine china cup with saucer, befitting the quality of the leaf.  During the week you'll most likely have the place to yourself, and a few hours can slip by reading magazines in a retro chair, with the relaxed feel of a friend's backyard.

postscript : sadly Purist is now closed, I am still mourning the loss and hope they didn't just throw out all of those design mags when they left.

  1. Sounds lovely and I will have to check it out. It is only minutes from the beach also so a great stopping point and I would like to check out the gallery as it sounds like it has a big spread on display. Thanks for sharing and sounds like you loved it.


thanks for taking the time, milk or sugar?
