What an adventure….opening 12 days before Christmas was ambitious, but we love a challenge! It was certainly worth the hard work of a 4 day renovation and our first day of trade was an emotional one. It’s been a 7 year dream to open this store and it was everything we had envisioned right down to the Hawaiian music and scent of burning coconut tealights.
It was so wonderful to be welcomed by so many wonderful locals and business owners to Bronte Village. We were so busy in those 12 days, we barely had time to catch our breathe. We look forward to being a long term retail resident of Bronte and offering the locals of Sydney’s eastern beaches, a unique store with friendly service and beautiful products to reflect our lifestyle by the coast.
Many of our loyal online customers reside all over Australia, so we thought we would share some of our instore pictures, to give you a sense of Coastal Home as a destination experience. Be sure to pop us on your list if you are ever in Sydney, it’s worth the visit and we’d love to see you!
Welcome to Plumeria Coastal Home’s very first Coastal store at Bronte.
Our new Coastal home…..140 Macpherson Street, Bronte…we can see the ocean from the doorway..heaven.
We often get asked if we decorated the facade with pebbles, but thats original from the 1960′s. We weren’t too delighted at the start, but they grew on us and they look like shells and pebbles along the shore..meant to be we say! Sometimes you don’t find the location, it finds you!
We went for a relaxed beach house look, aqua feature wall, polished cement floors and seagrass sisal rugs.
Lemongrass Essense soaps and tealights along with Blue and White Ginger Jars gives our island abode a fresh stylish feel. Pop a mini pineapple in your vase to secure heavy palm leaves, tropic chic.
Turquoise distressed beach house frames with Hawaiian postcards, exclusive to Plumeria Coastal Home.
Our bookcases are filled with quality coastal delights from tropical cushions, to shell frames, Taschen coffee table books and Essense Noosa soaps and candles.
Finally…..we have coral! From gorgeous clam shells to sustainably harvested coral we have several varieties to choose from.
Nemo looks right at home in our new store….italian dinnerware by emilio bergamin.
Gloss white Pineapples, the symbol of hospitality and welcome.
Our Coffee table books are sure to please, purchase an island shell or coral clump and pop on top for an interior look thats always on trend.
We were recently voted on the ‘Going Up’ list by the Sun Herald S Gals on Jan 6 2013, they featured our retro surfing world print which currently adornes our window display and yes we love to use real pineapples throughout the store.
We love quality well made products, preferably Australian, our Pineapple dispenser and World trinket ceramic box are among our top sellers.
Exclusive to Plumeria Coastal Home, Copacabana napkins and placemats. And yes we love our Ginger Jars!
Our Essense Noosa Summer range is a big seller, from Vanilla to Coconut and Frangipani, we’ve got your home and body scents covered for the endless summer!
In 2013, we’re branching out into a small range of jewellery and accessories, our turquoise and bone cross bracelets are walking out the door this summer!
The Tiki Shell Bar – Sometimes you just need a few pieces to give your vignettes that coastal feel.
Lemongrass Essense is so popular this summer, we love the Palm Tree packaging too!
