I am completely in love with Eclectic Home and Garden in Cronulla, a laid back suburb with a Gold Coast feel on the Sutherland Shire.
The vibe is ever so welcoming, and such a well organised shop with all things nice and beautiful for the home. The ambience invites, and you'd be forgiven for thinking that you were spending a leisurely day either at your home or someone else's. The latter is true to form on a weekday when you don't have to work.
Nothing is too nostalgic. The decor queen awakes, yet even if you're feeling artistic, you might surprise yourself at this place. If you love burning candles in the house, as well as gardening, you'll love it here. At the time, the owner was burning some caramel scented candle from the Glasshouse Fragrances range. It was just sublime.
This is a decent sized shop, and easily one of the best places to buy items for the home in Cronulla, if not in Sydney full-stop. What also amazes and impresses about this space is that there is an abundance of stock; the layouts are busy and all-encompassing, however, it does not feel cluttered at all.
Quirky, kid-friendly and for the beauty, spiritual and decor lover in mind. Come in with an open mind, and leave with an even bigger open mind. I have my eye on a piece that reminds you to never give up on your dreams, and when I buy this sign, it will represent $20 well spent proudly hanging up on the wall somewhere in my domain.
You're reminded at Eclectic Home and Garden that life is short, and it is absolutely divine and delicious. This is not an advertisement, but a quote where I am writing from the heart to you, dear reader on how lovely this shop is. You're not far from Cronulla train station on the T4 Illawarra and Eastern Suburbs Line either.
