Freshen Up Your Interior Style

We love a spring refresh and reboot. If you've successfully Marie Condo'ed your whole house (and even if you haven't!) there's nothing better than buying a few new and functional pieces that 'spark joy'. 

We popped into Once Upon A Time Exotic Furniture to get some interior design inspo in preparation for warmer weather and sunny days ahead!  Once Upon A Time is housed within the unique igloo building on Station Street in Bowral, and has a fab selection of all things textural, timber and timeless!

Not only do they have a massive range of gorgeous pieces, but you get awesome discounts and options to customise if you pre-order. Check out our mood boards and favourite picks for spring and summer interior design. We've popped the names of the pieces underneath, so if you see something you like, just head on instore to shop!

Have you seen petfrified wood up close?! It's ancient wood that's been transformed into stone and it's amazing! Once Upon A Time have an incredible range of petrified wood pieces, from side consoles through to huge dining room tables and sinks. Each item is unique and is up to 4 million years old. Each piece is a stand out feature, so take a look for your spring refresh.
