Big news this week, friends. Milly and Eugene will soon be opening the doors of our new store in the eastern suburbs of Sydney. The online side of our business will remain the same but for those who live in Sydney, you will soon be able to come visit us and see, touch and feel for yourselves the wonderful things you see on our website store.
Our online business has been new, interesting and really a lot of fun. When the first orders started flowing in, in those early weeks, we would send "woo hoo" group messages around the family filled with emoticons of fireworks and dancing girls. We were so excited to receive those orders! Months later, it still fills us with so much satisfaction to get emails and orders from people all over Australia, New Zealand and even Mexico and Greenland.
But the thing we love and look forward to in our new shop, is the sheer dreaminess of seeing our homewares displayed together in all their beauty in one place. The stunning colours, exotic designs and the creative placement of our goodies is going to be a feast for the eyes, we promise!!!
Till next time.

Milly And Eugene was dreamt up by two young creative sisters with a passion for all things beautiful.
The decision to call their new venture, Milly and Eugene, evolved from the nicknames they were called as young girls. Hailey, was often referred to as Milly by Mum, Jude, as she named her after the famous 60's actress, Hayley Mills. Kate, was given the nickname Eugene, by her older brother, Martin, who thought it was funny to call her an "uncool name" (at the time) and enjoyed the torment and reaction he received whilst using it.
It was after an inspiring family holiday and both having recently completed home renovations, Hailey and Kate's desire to start a homewares company was in the making. Owning a chain of restaurants and retail businesses between them, the sisters are no strangers to hard work and the success that comes with it, so combining their passion and talent, it's no doubt, Milly and Eugene had captured the hearts of their fans. Milly and Eugene has evolved over the years, starting out as a small online business run from the garage of their homes, into their very own retail store and now into wholesaling, their beautiful wares to some of the best retailers around Australia.
It's Hailey and Kate's aspiration to bring you unique and desirable pieces, that have been hand selected from around the world, into your home.
Enjoy and shop often xx
