INTO THE WILD was launched in April 2016 after my long standing love of plants and interiors finally got the better of me. I had a wonderful 15 year career in print and paper and I loved it, I really did. But for me there was always something missing. I had always felt this desire, from a very young age, to have my own business. To create something from scratch, doing something that I truly loved as my hobby.
I love my home. I have 2 little girls and one very supportive husband and my passion for interiors has grown over the years creating a little sanctuary for us surrounded by things I love. Indoor plants have been the overwhelming thing, that visually, truly make our house a home. Every room is drenched in plants and without them it feels rather bare and empty. Our little jungle house is ever changing as plants are rotated, moved around and swapped out and they make our house feel comfortable and relaxed. They are also the quickest, easiest (and often the cheapest) way to spruce up a dull space!
Recognising this inherit connection with plants to interiors, and an absolute frustration of never being able to find the perfect plant and pot in the one place..I soon stated my online store selling and delivering perfectly matched plants and pots to doorsteps all over Melbourne. Soon after began my home plant styling service which gave me wonderful insight into peoples homes and lives and how it really was changing the way people felt about their space. Plants have an incredible power to make us feel happy.
Two years down the track I knew I had to open a store, be more accessible and share my love of plants and interiors with my fellow plant lovers. So here we are! The doors are open and we couldnt be happier. Our focus is to make it easy for our customers to find a beautiful healthy plant and a perfect pot in the one place so our range of both is vast and everchanging.
Come share the plant love. Be inspired, spruce your space, adopt a new green baby or buy that perfect growing gift for a friend.
We look forward to meeting you at our new Hampton store.
