Welcome to our new blog

LivedIn Coogee opened its doors to the sunny beachside suburb of Coogee in August 2010.   My vision was to create a haven of beautiful things for the home, a wonderful combination of  things I love and intriguing treasures from around the globe.

I wanted the space to be serene, an inviting retreat from the outside world, a  relaxed atmosphere with a wonderful treasure trove of stylish and unique decorating finds.

I have always had a long love affair with all things related to the home and the creation of beautiful spaces in which we live.  Drawing on world travels and experiences, I search the for items which inspire me, things with a natural, earthy tone, treasures not found in the every-day experience.  The collection, sourced both locally and overseas, includes a unique selection of furniture, homewares, lifestyle products none of which I wouldn't have in my own home, I hope you enjoy the journey I am on in providing my customers with beautiful and inspiring treasures.....
