Hooks and Frocks

The Paper Room team have just returned from an indulgent weekend in the capital.

We stayed in the container house in Owhiro Bay, shopped til we dropped, checked out Martino Gamper’s 100 chairs in 100 days at the city gallery and ate our way around the city.

Here ‘s what we loved.

The Container House for a quirky adults only accommodation, kind of like glamping.

Hannahs Laneway for a trail of boutique factories and eateries -channelling a little bit of Melbourne.
