Dive right in to the coast’s new creative design den, The Ocean Club

There's something uniquely special – and terrifying – about coming up with a completely out-of-the-box idea. On one hand, you're creating something super exciting that's brand-new in the space. On the other hand, there's nobody that you can look to for guidance as what you're creating hasn't been done before. The inspiring duo behind The Ocean Club know this feeling all too well – however, the long slog to get here has well and truly paid off. What Madison and Reuben, creative directors behind The Ocean Club, have achieved is a dreamy new design space, bringing something completely unique to the Gold Coast. more

It's said that the Earth without art is simply 'eh'. Memes aside, art possesses the incredible ability to make you feel something just by looking at it – it's emotive and yet, entirely subjective.

If your walls are looking a little bare, FINEPRINT co has opened the doors to a stunning new showroom at The Marine Village at Sanctuary Cove. The studio specialises in high-end contemporary art prints for your abode, so go ahead and start visualising where to hang all of your newly acquired pieces! more
