I have a favourite homewares shop ... and it's not IKEA. (although IKEA is pretty good for homewares). My go-to-place for presents and that something special for my home is Thèmes: Classic & Timeless in Haberfield. It's a beautiful shop full of French Provincial Homewares. Patricia, the owner, is one of the most gorgeous and stylish women you could meet.
Take a look inside via my photos. Whenever I go to visit Patricia I end up buying something, either for myself or for a present for a friend. OK, sometimes I don't buy anything but I always covet something. There are so many beautiful things in her shop: furniture, lamps, homewares, lotions and soaps, scarves etc. Some thing for everyone. She also offers gift vouchers.
Can you see the two candle sticks below with the sea foam green candles - I love these and am trying to justify them. Patricia just laughs at me and says that I would just end up painting them white.
This is Patricia - I caught her unawares with the camera and she was all worried she hadn't done her hair, but this is her au naturale and I think she's just stunning.
I love birdcages used to dispaly pretty things. I have a vintage birdcage at home (that is green) and I'm trying to work out how to make it over so it looks more like the one below on the chair. And how gorgeous is that clock!
Remember I blogged previously about being given a chandelier that is broken and I have to fix. Patricia is the one who gave it to me and she has the same chandelier hanging in her shop. Isn't it a beauty. Her prices are very reasonable. I saw the same chandelier recently down in Bowral for $500 more expensive. I can't wait to hang my chandelier. I've got to get onto fixing it. Perhaps this week.
Thèmes also has a great array of lamps.
I really like this one below - and look it's on sale!
Another reason I like visiting Thèmes is for all Patricia's styling. She has little vignettes everywhere. if you are looking for some ideas for your own house she is a good person to talk to to get ideas from.
I love this rustic chopping board and silver cutlery and home wares.
I could take the whole lot home with me.
Pretty good fake flowers!
Patricia also has a huge array of materials for custom made blinds, curtains, upholstery and cushions. If you see anything you like in the photos above or want to visit her shop you can find it at:

12/191 Ramsay St
You can phone Patricia on: (02) 97989586
Not only is Patricia gorgeous, she loves my kids also!
I haven't been paid or compensated to blog about Thèmes. I am just doing it because I adore Patricia and her shop and think it's got an amazing array of products that are extremely well priced.
Go visit her! and then you can always walk up the road for amazing Italian food and coffee. Haberfield is a very Italian suburb!
