THE ONLINE STORE IS NOW OPEN!
Indian Summer is a term given to the
long, hot summers with balmy nights, where the feel is relaxed and harmonious;
celebrating life with loved ones over a cold beer or crisp white wine.
It is particularly relevant because growing up in Perth WA, we have long hot Summers,
which we often refer to as an Indian Summer.
It’s also a term used later in life to celebrate
life’s successes and happiness.
Our mission is to help others live an inspiring life surrounded by beautiful things.
We believe our home is our sanctuary. Here we can create an environment that cocoons us from the world, and provides us with a space to be nurtured so we can thrive and share with others. We have procured many beautiful items, from local artisans as well as overseas, to add harmony, style and a point of difference to your home. New to our store, we also have a range of inspiring lifestyle books, journals, body oils and candles ... items that nurture the home, body and soul....to live an inspired life!
I have been in the design industry both here in QLD and WA for many years now. I have styled, decorated and renovated many homes over my lifetime, both my own and others! I have always have a passion and a love of surrounding myself with beautiful items. I love designing a space, filled with meaningful and soulful items, that resonates with the owner, and in turn, brings a added magic and soulfulness to the space. My husband, Nathan and I recently opened (and then closed!) our bricks and mortar homewares store in Applecross WA, Indian Summer Home. We recently moved back to Queensland, and live in the Gold Coast Hinterland in our 100 year old renovated Queenslander, which we also run as an Air BnB, Indian Summer Retreat. Although we are both creative, (Nathan has a love of art and dabbles!), we have returned to our careers in the corporate world of Education and Eyewear for now as well as running the online store.
OUR ONLINE STORE IS NOW OPEN FOR YOU TO ENJOY!

Creative Director / Senior Interior Designer
“ I have always had a wanderlust of faraway places…my memories of the vast blue Indian Ocean stretching forever, triggered my curiosity of the magic of the adventures and exotic places the seafarers visited and the treasures they brought back to WA, as the huge cargo ships and boats scattered across the horizon, berthed into Fremantle Harbour.
My dad was a master mariner…his tales of voyages to the tropical islands of Bali and the Pacific, visiting the big city of New York, and the courageous voyages he took around the Cape of Good Hope in the 1950/60’s, instilled in me a sense of adventure and love for beautiful things and interiors from exotic places far away and of a lifestyle from a bygone era.”
