Creatively Speaking – Tam Turnbull “I Like Birds”


One of my favourite streets in Sydney is William Street, in the suburb of Paddington.  It has lots of gorgeous boutique shops, a little Italian Cafe and cute pubs which nestle on the corner to cosy up with a few friends for an after work drink.  One shop which has caught my eye on numerous occasions, probably because of my business name, is “I Like Birds”.  For those of you who love vintage, or like that little nostalgic trip back in time then you will “Like Birds” too.


Tam kindly agreed for me to intrude into her store and answer a few questions for my little Friday spot.

How would you describe your style? I would describe my shop and style both as an ever changing curation of lovely things.

Where would you recommend someone coming to visit your home town visit….where would be the must stop place or places to see Sydney has so much to see. A ferry tour of the Harbour is a must. And a shop down William Street, Paddington. Describe your perfect day My perfect day would be an early visit to my favourite flea market, followed by coffee and the Sunday paper, then a lie down on the sand at Bondi Beach, and cocktails at sunset on my balcony. Now as much as I love your shop, I love cooking and am always eager to find out a new recipe… what is your favorite dish to cook?? I am a DISASTER in the kitchen. I always joke that paramedics should be on standby when I attempt to cook anything.
