WHO'S YOUR? is the curated black book of the best in their business.



Part-time PA and part-time paper folder
Combining her childhood loves of paper dolls and the Japanese art of origami, Melbourne’s Marcelle Crosby is creating sweet and chic wall art in the form of paper dresses. Selecting vintage paper prints of maps, floral motifs, travel stamps and even flags, her dresses make beautiful wall adornments when framed or displayed on hangers. We ask Marcelle for tips on finding inspiration, sourcing materials and how to create environmentally conscious crafts.

St Kilda, Melbourne

What do you do?
I’m a part-time PA and part-time paper folder.

What’s your biggest splurge?
Travel. I love travelling! I also have the best travel agent in the world. Bill Clohesy at Plan B Travel in St Kilda.

Do you have any recommendations for properly displaying artwork?
I like to hang multiple frames collectively using all different sizes. I love taking photos of sunsets so I have  created a wall full of beautiful sunsets in different frames which looks great! It makes me feel warm every time I walk past.

What are your top five budget decorator tips?
- Move furniture around. It can instantly give the room a different feel.
- Try softer lighting. This can make a room feel warmer and more inviting.
- Build up your homewares collection slowly and from many different places. (You don’t have to buy it all from the one shop.)
- Add a little colour somewhere, somehow – It will make you happy!
- Ikea can be your friend but you don’t have to buy everything! (Refer to point 3).

Who’s your saviour when you’re pressed for time?
Lately, I’ve been taking advantage of the home delivery services from all the delicious food stores around my area. My favourites are…
Pinos fruit
Neils Meats
Blakes Feast (Speak to Neredah for all your foodie needs. She is the BEST!)

Top five must-haves…
- Sleep. My favourite pastime without a doubt!
- Music. I love how it can take you back to a specific moment in your life in a single beat.
- The Internet. I ask myself how we lived without it for so long.
- Moisturiser. I trust it will be a good investment in the future.
- Laughter. Is there any better tonic? I think not.
