Have you got your copy of the new “Spaces” magazine by Frankie?
Frankie’s house-loving interiors book, Spaces, is back with volume three, and it’s as busting-with-good-stuff as ever. Flip through the chunky book and you’ll discover over 250 pages of dreamy homes and creative abodes from all around Australia and New Zealand.
What makes these places special is the time, care and imagination taken to piece them together – whether they’re an eclectic sharehouse, a travelling van, a tiny flat, or a rural gem. Care to take a lovely sticky beak at where awesome people live and work? Visit us in-store to pick up your copy. Better be quick sticks, though, as copies are limited!

Mmm, you should experience the beautiful scents in our store at Westfield Chermside! We have just received the amazing range of Heart & Home candles from History & Heraldry. These fragrance-rich natural soy wax candles are created to fill your home with evocative scents and designed to look stylish anywhere. The selection of fragrances capture every mood from sweet floral meadows to the aromas of home baking, while powerful wood–based scents compliment truly feminine perfumes. Each has a subtle twist to ignite your imagination as well as your senses.
History & Heraldry have worked alongside some of the leading perfumers in the industry to create a range of three distinctive aromas that will envelop the heart of your home:
- Bring the outside in with Cottage Garden
- Conjure up delectable culinary delights with Country Kitchen
- Lose yourself in the indulgent aromas of Pure Bliss
History & Heraldry’s decision to use the finest American soy wax lays at the core of the development of Heart & Home range as they share the same concerns that our customers do about the impact the products they manufacture have on the environment. Soy wax is renewable, sustainable and kinder to our world.
Made from a unique soy bean formulation, this non-toxic wax is not only biodegradable, but creates a candle that burns slowly at a lower temperature than paraffin wax. Choosing Heart & Home’s soy-based candle range means you will not only enjoy a more enhanced scent experience, but you can do so in the knowledge that this gorgeous indulgence has its heart in nature.
The fragrances include:
- Mediterranean Fig
- Rambling Rose
- French Vanilla
