Well the chill of winter has finally set in. As I sit, in bed, under my doona in my warm winter woolies, I can’t help but think that Spring is just around the corner. Spring is such a lovely time of year, when the stillness of winter bursts to life with warmth and vibrancy. It seems to bring a sense of hope, new life, and fresh starts. For me Spring is best represented through gorgeous bright colours, so it’s time for a big ‘Spring clean’ of our home and to add some splashes of colour.
There are a plethora of bright on trend colours for Spring 2013, including Emerald Greens, Dusky Blues, Zesty Yellow, Lime Greens, Nectarine and Poppy Red. These gorgeous exuberant colours work well when paired back with some calming neutrals. So for my home, I’ll be keeping my large furniture neutral and just making few small changes. Some bright throw cushions, a colourful lightweight throw and a gorgeous bunch of fresh flowers, will be a great way to bring that fresh spring feel into our home.

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.
