This March, our own Daniela Valle had the chance to travel all the way to Australia. During those weeks, she made stops in Sydney and Melbourne; both cities offer amazing cityscapes and design-forward qualities.

We asked Danny if she brought back some Vegemite to share with us in the studio, but unfortunately, she decided to go with the Tim Tams instead. Check out her ‘Straya gallery below!
