A Day in the Life of HOME DESIGN & CO: Agent Life...

Road Tripping around the state is not something I enjoy its something I love. I love to drive, fast mostly, but safely of course. My love of driving started when I leant to drive. My dad said the best way to learn to drive was to hit the open road.

Some of my fondest memories are just hanging with my dad, driving along roads that went for miles and finding the best bakeries in places I had never heard of.

So with a passion for the road, love of home wares and the gift of the gab HOME DESIGN AND CO was born.

The day always starts with sunrise, welcoming the day and praying it doesn’t rain. No one enjoys driving at fast speeds in the pouring rain.

Followed by a maze of stores and clients. Navigating my way through regions across the state. Bringing the latest collections from the brands I represent to current and new stores. The visits are always filled with lots of chat about retail, what customers want and always about how tired everyone is when trade show season is over!

I recently visited some stores in the HUNTER AND NORTH COAST REGIONS. It is such a beautiful part of the state.

Fetch is a store owned by a local Sarah. I love seeing Sarah her store is an extension of her. She is always glowing and positive. She just moved her store from Cessnock central to the serene location nestled in Peppers Creek Barrel Room

Fetch Home & Gift, Pokolbin

Up next is a home, gift and fashion store. I used to visit this store way before I actually sold any goods to them. Ali has become a friend, our conversations are never short and sweet, it’s always filled with stories of what is happening in our lives.

Her store is always full, with locals saying hi, tourists at the marina or a regular wanting to see what’s new in store.

Corner Secrets, Nelson Bay

If you have been to Port Stephens than you will have heard of THE HOME INTERIOR, it’s a destination store. It is a one-stop shop, coffee food and a spot of shopping. Filled with treasures for the home and body it is a feast for anyone that loves coastal and Hampton’s themes. You will want to live in here and never go home!

The Home Interior, Nelson Bay

On the way home I had one more stop. A special delivery for a new store to Newcastle LAYERED HOME. A beautiful store that is owned and run by Stephanie a textile specialist. The store offers a selection of services and goods to make your house a home ☺

Saving her freight I hand delivered a MALAWI CHAIR, which looked right at home as soon as it was delivered!

Layered Home, Newcastle

So that’s a wrap of one day in the life of me Jess @ HOME DESIGN AND CO
