It’s Australian Made Week... a week to celebrate and support local makers - That’s Us!

Read all about it here:

We are so so proud to work alongside other small family run Aussie businesses. We love supporting Aussie artists, and showcasing their amazing work in our store. We have developed a lovely friendship and special partnership with two businesses in particular... Blond + Noir and Hide & Seek Kids.

Let us introduce ourselves: 

Blond + Noir

Blond + Noir is an Australian owned small business created in 2015 by Elisa Strbac, a life long interior addict and art lover. With a background in all things creative as well as business, Elisa decided it was time to put all those skills to use and do what she truly loves – to create. Blond + Noir wall art is designed in house and is Australian hand made. Blond + Noir is located on the Gold Coast, Queensland.

Hide & Seek Kids 

Hide & Seek Kids is an Australian family owned and operated business. Annette and her family design and manufacture Cubby Houses/Playhouses, Wooden toys and Kids Furniture. Hide & Seek products are all designed right here in Australia. Hide & Seek Kids is located in Brisbane, Queensland, you can visit their showroom here: Unit 3 356 Bilsen Road, Geebung.

Minnie and Me Interiors

In 2017, our family-run Australian wallpaper and wall decal business started by chance. I couldn't find a wallpaper for a decorating project that I was working on, and my brother, Jon, a sign-writer by trade said "Let's print our own". The rest of history. We are now regarded as the one of the go to places in Australia for kids' room inpso and removable wallpaper. Minnie and Me Interiors is based in the Goulburn Valley, Victoria, where all of our products are lovingly made to order by our family.

We all met via Instagram, and were drawn together because of our love for beautiful design.  As our relationships grew, it also became clearer and clearer that we held similar business values around respect, loyalty and collaboration.  Our alignment has lead us to work on several projects together.  You will often find the three of us texting late at night with new concepts and inspiration.

Here are some of the projects that we have worked on together:
