Walking into We Live Like This boutique in Paddington, feels a little like Frankie would feel if it were a store instead of a magazine, with sweet little deer ornaments, vintage books and warm wooden display cabinets. Store owner, Mekalie’s love for Frankie’s quirky style coupled with Scandinavian design aesthetics (which is all about minimalism, simplicity and functionality) is evident in the interior of the boutique. She has really utilised the small space making it feel warm and welcoming yet uncluttered.

Mekalie hand picks every item in her boutique, only showcasing clothing by Australian and New Zealand designers because she feels that their designs are perfect for our lifestyle and climate. I love the fact that she is providing a platform for these brands and showcasing the amazing potential we have as designers. Some of the brands she stocks in her boutique include: Zara McKenna (sarah wears her frilled singlet), Shakah, Baumbach (a fashion / art collaboration including printed peter pan collars), Secret South, Emily Green accessories, Status Anxiety leather purses and many more.

Keep your eye on this boutique as coming soon to We Live Like This are more homewares, with industrial / functional designs perfect for small spaces, and an in-house clothing label!
