For so long now, the trend for home furnishings has been toward neutral basic colours and styles. The reason being, they are always considered a safe choice. The interior design industry dictates the terms with the premise that you can't go too wrong with cream, fawn, beige, black and other earthy tones. Attempts to modify and modernise the look has revolved around textures and we've seen the rise of faux furs, microfibres, large knits and leather goods. But the colour palette has basically remained the same.
At Milly and Eugene, we want to buck this trend and bring back real colour into our lives and into our homes. Colour makes you happy and our homewares and furnishings come in every colour you can imagine. Milky pinks, aqua, azure blue, mint green, daffodil yellow. Walk into the shop or just scroll through our website and you'll be dazed with colour.
A living room with neutral furnishings is transformed with our crazily colourful Kilim rugs. Drab white walls will be illuminated with our beautiful pastel mirrors, screens and brightly textured artworks. Our beautiful bright Kantha quilts, hand-woven bedheads, drum tables, crocheted throws and pastel rattan chairs will brighten any bedroom. You can place any one of our resin Buddhas, bulldogs, bunnies, rhinos or painted skulls around your house to light up a dull corner or decorate the kids bedrooms and play areas.
We invite you to take a look at what we have instore and dare to experiment with colour in your home. It will bring you joy.
"The purest and most thoughtful minds are those which love colour the most"

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.
