The Phillips' take over

Hi! I'm Kate!
At the end of 2021, I finished up work as Head of eCommerce with an international Shopify Plus Agency.
Agency life was not compatible with my desire to spend more time being a creative Mum. My husband could see I needed a career change and urged me to leave my job, without having a plan as to what next...
I am a serial list maker, planner & organiser, jumping with no plan was HUGE for me, but I did it!

The Dream...

For years I had been talking about turning our passion for renovation, interior styling and furniture restoration into a source of income. We'd renovated a few houses (we love turning a house into a home), regularly up-cycled our own furniture, sewed our own curtains, cushion covers and beanbags, but we had never nailed down exactly what we wanted to do or how we wanted to do it...

By November 2021 I had decided that I thought an online cushion & homewares store might be the go. I had been running really successful eCommerce businesses for other people, why couldn't I launch my own? But then I wondered... was there already the perfect business out there?

A simple Google search later I found Luxe & Humble listed, and the rest as they say... is history.

Now we spend our days sourcing stunning furniture, pulling together the perfect colour, texture and pattern combinations and helping people just like you, to create the most wonderful homes.

    Sentimental, Unique & Loved

    We don't want what everyone else has, so rather than shopping at big name stores we have collected pieces of furniture & art that we love over many years from one of a kind sources.
    We believe that your home should be made up of a multitude of things that you love, a mesh of memories & the tastes of each family member.

    Photo: We love these carved timber & soapstone figures we brought home from Zimbabwe in 2007 and this canvas, both Barry & I walked past separately and just had to have.

    Colourful & Timeless

    Neutral palette's can be beautiful, but with a couple of kids, a dog & a cat, cream anything would be ruined in minutes.
    We love to incorporate colour, but we firmly believe in choosing colours we love, not just colours that are currently trending & allow you to date a house to within 5 years (Mission Brown & Hog Bristle we're looking at you!)

    Photo: Our kitchen might not be everyone's cup of tea. But walking into this beauty every morning is a blessing - Green is Dulux ' Pharaoh's Gem'.

    Quality

    It makes my heart hurt when I think of all the terrible quality 'trendy' furniture & soft furnishings that become landfill when they are no longer 'on trend' or when they break after 5 minutes use.
    We wholeheartedly believe that investing in quality furnishing that you love means that you won't need to redecorate each season - we love antiques for this reason, each piece was handcrafted to last.

    Photo: It took me over 4 years to find this gorgeous hall table. It was worth the wait. I just love how the afternoon sun diffuses through our front door.
