|Ever wonder how the Green Man’s Arms got it’s facelift? We wanted to give a little background into how we came across some of the favourite pieces from our Carlton home away from home.
When it came to giving Green Man’s Arms a new lease on life it was important to refurbish the space in a way that reflected our own unique, personal style. We also wanted to deliver on the vision that we had for what the Green Man’s Arms could really become to the community.
Pieces of art travelled with us, from pub to pub (previously at the Terminus, Union Club, Yarra Valley Grand), and we brought together and collected unique and beautiful things that were both special to us, and that we hoped would create a sense of texture, history and homeliness for all of those who visited.
Green Leaf Wallpaper- Wallpaper Museum England
“I found this unique print which was originally made from hand cut leather flowers and featured in England’s wallpaper museum, I adored it and when I found out the art had been photographed and re-produced I knew we had to have it.”
Vintage Australian Tea Towels in Cane Embroidery Hoops
“When we were doing the place up I discovered these tea towels again which were my mothers, I cut sections from each and placed them in original embroidery hoops to give them new life.”
Vintage Embroidered Peacock
“The embroidering was actually my grandmothers and for those who have been to our previous pubs you will notice that it has travelled with us each and every time.”
The Penny Whistlers- Tretchikoff Print
“This piece also travelled from pub to pub with us, and believe it or not the mustaches are a result of graffiti when it was up at the Terminus and we can’t take them off without damaging the precious art!”
