About ten minutes from Oxford Street is Woollahra's Ginkgo Leaf — a shop of Japanese-inspired designs and kitchenwares that'll take your home style from chintz to minimalist chic. Sleek simplicity is what unites the broad range of items in store, whether it's simple brass ornaments to decorate your bookshelves, bamboo cooking utensils, or a cast iron teapot for your own at-home tea ceremonies. Expect to pay around $40 for a statement yumoni ceramic cup or $15 for super kawaii Kokeshi Dolls stickers that come in a retro box, but as much as $500 for exquisite urushi bowls.
