Luxury Living at PYD

Did you have a nice weekend?

I visited the first day of 30 days of home and entertaining on Saturday at the PYD Building in Waterloo.

The PYD Building was opened about 2 years ago and is a designer’s supacentre. Flanking Philip, Young and Danks (PYD) Streets in Waterloo it is the home to a number of unique home decorating and furniture stores. The man behind the building, Geoff Clark, felt Sydney was lacking a Design Hub. New York has the D&D Building and now Sydney has PYD!

On Saturday all the showrooms were buzzing with displays from outside suppliers as well as food and wine merchants. It was certainly the place to go.

I caught Patisse chef, Vincent Gadan demonstrate how to make a Croquembouche. I could’ve sat there for hours listening to that wonderful French accent!

Supplier of exquisite door handles, Mother of Pearl and Sons hosted a display by Sweet Art Cakes which was just delectable.

With electricity prices about to skyrocket in New South Wales, I was intrigued to see the new energy saving lighting by Koda Lighting. Another really ugly energy efficient solution, I thought. Boy was I wrong.

These new light fittings can be retro-fitted to spaces that once housed halogen downlights and will provide a much stronger more evenly dispersed light.

Whilst the fittings are expensive at the outset, their 20 year life expectancy with no maintenance and little electricity consumption really make the choice a no-brainer. The fittings also come in swivel options for lighting artwork, recessed wall lights for stairwells and hanging bars for over benches and tables.

All in all, it was a great start to the festival. Have you booked to attend any events?
