Get Inspired by Eastside Design for Living
The City of Norwood Payneham & St Peters has long been Adelaide’s number one destination for contemporary and vintage homewares, eye-catching local artworks and visionary design solutions. And now you can find the best offerings from all three categories in one place thanks to the recently launched Eastside Design for Living.
This glossy publication is the ultimate guide to the latest trends in interiors, homewares, furnishings and decoration across the council area and was recently launched by Mayor Robert Bria, who made the following comment.
“Boasting creative flair, exceptional service and a sharpened knowledge of market and design trends, Eastside Design for Living is not only visually appealing, it is a wealth of history and knowledge.”

Step through a beautifully preserved 100-year-old bluestone cottage and into Outdoors on Parade to discover a world of sophisticated homewares and gifts suitable for everything from a first birthday to a fiftieth anniversary, then put the stylish kitchenware to the test as Adelaide’s most acclaimed chefs share their kitchen hacks in a series of private cooking classes.
