Tucked away on Buchan St is one of Sydenhams true hidden gems! Blue Scarlet is a furniture, interior design and homeware store where you're highly unlikely to find many creams, off-whites or beiges. This tiny treasure trove is all about bold colour and vibrancy - with fun and function going hand in hand in all of their products.
Operating during 'ladies hours' between 10am until 2pm from Tuesday to Saturday (or by appointment), your mood will lift upon setting foot through the door. The focus goes beyond the indoors, however - Blue Scarlet stocks beautiful bicycles and prides itself on sourcing locally made, upcycled or fairly sourced stock. Owner, Lou, also offers specialty interior design services for large and small projects.
For First Thursdays, Blue Scarlet has generously offered use of their studio space for a one night only pop up exhibition, zine launch and performance by Hana Aoake and Zach Williams for Dunedin-based gallery Fresh and Fruity.
