WOW! No words... we are totally, utterly, completely overwhelmed by the reaction we've had to our very first competition. Hailey and I launched our online home wares just shy of a month and wanted to give all of our friends that, like, comment and follow our posts on instagram and Facebook, a massive thank you for the support you've shown in such a short time. So talking yesterday, we thought why not give away something beautiful!
We did not expect such a wonderful reaction. In less than 24 hours, we've had around 200 entries. This confirms two things in our minds, a) you all love our products just as much as we do and b) you all love a competition. So stay tuned because we hope for this to become a regular theme of monthly giveaways.
And if you haven't already entered into our comp, it's not too late, we will be announcing the winner of our Green Queen Peacock Bedhead on Monday 12th August. All you have to do to enter is either.
- Go onto Facebook and share our ORIGINAL photo of the green peacock head, just look for the photo that announces the competition. Or,
- Head over to our Instagram and repost the picture of the green peacock bedhead, making sure you #millyandeugene and @millyandeugene, so we can see your entry.
A huge thank you again to everyone that has shown their support, we hope this is a long and happy friendship and we can continue to inspire you with our designs and products.

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
