    The year that was: Bricks and Mortar by Diane Leyman

    {Throughout January, we're looking back at all the posts our awesome columnists wrote for us in 2012, before our team of some new and some returning contributors start blogging in February.}

    Our Bricks & Mortar columnist Diane Leyman visited a lot of great places around Melbourne this year - shops, studios, schools and more. Some of them you can visit yourself, others you can only visit through these words and pictures. As she is moving onto bigger things this year (including bringing more awesome design finds to her excellent blog), I'd like to thank Diane for knocking on these doors in 2012 and giving us an insight into what lies beyond! tess x
