Don’t judge a book by its cover, right? Well, sometimes you just really want to and with Clancy’s Fishbar in Perth, Australia, we really wanted to. Take one look at the interior and you’ll see why. Colorful and patterned fabric chandeliers nonchalantly hang from the ceiling, giving the whole space a bright, welcoming playfulness. This is matched brilliantly with a kaleidoscope of multi-colored chairs and dazzling prints, not to mention floor to ceiling windows with views overlooking the sparkling Indian Ocean.

We’re big fans of the work of American illustrator, Amy Sol. So we were excited to hear that she’s winging over to Australia as a guest speaker at this year’s Perth Semi-Permanent, which is taking place on April 8. We asked her what she was expecting to find on her first visit to the country: ‘I’ve always wanted to visit. I loved to look at National Geographic articles about Australia when I was growing up and always hoped to actually visit someday. I don’t have any expectations at this point. I’m just looking forward to seeing the cities, maybe some wildlife, and perhaps meeting some cool people’.
