I don’t quite know how to describe Parterre other than to say it’s quite magical and enchanting. I’ve driven past it a few times and also been into the store on the odd occasion and am constantly blown away by how gloriously French-inspired their world is. Set over two levels with a majestic outdoor space, this Woollahra wonderland is a must-see for locals who love quality, old-world wares. And for those of you who aren’t in Sydney, take a virtual tour here!

As you can see from the pictures, the ground floor is just too divine for words. That grand, wooden hutch is by far my favourite piece; it makes such a statement but is subdued and retains a sense of elegant charm about it. That’s sort of what I think Parterre is really; it says so much without the shouting. Every piece in this store feels like it has lived a life (and I love homewares with a story!).

The back of the store opens onto a beautiful outdoor space; drenched with sunlight in parts, hugged by moss in others and drizzled with breathtaking pieces throughout. There is nothing in this space I wouldn’t want to own. The bird ornament, the rusted mirror, the lions head in that gorgeous teal hue; I want to camp out in this area and never return home.

Well there you have it, Creatives, my Store Tour of the magical Parterre; part French-inspired, part antique, part weathered and wonderful and 100% must-see. It’s definitely the place to go to discover true statement pieces for your home you’ll hold onto for years.
