A new direction for Olive Home

As summer approaches faster than you can book an appointment for a spray tan, your wardrobe can often seem a little tired. Weighed down with winter bits and pieces, and if you’re anything like me – woolen dresses have been thrown about hazardously to make room for tanks, while my boots are lined up against the wall waiting to be boxed up again!

So what to do when summer has, in that quintessential Queensland way, slapped us in the face with no warning whatsoever?

EASY! Come and see us in Olive Home!

Elk’s Summer Range is like no other!

Since opening Olive Woman and relocating the majority of our fashion labels into the new store, we’ve been busy directing Olive Home’s fashion focus into a light-hearted, everyday, come-away-and-walk-along-the-beach-at-sunset-with-me way. This breezy, colourful, more bohemian way of thinking and dressing is perfect for Queensland and perfect for us. Think relaxed silks and cottons, floral embroidery and flowing hemlines that not only are beautiful, but are easy on the old purse-strings to (which is always a help!)


Naudic captures the beauty of coastal living.

With this new focus in mind, we’ve taken on some beautiful labels that we’d love to share with you. Alongside Elk, an old Olive Home favourite, you’ll now find gorgeous collections from Naudic, Joanie Loves Chachi, and due for imminent arrival, White Label Noba.


Joanie Loves Chachi – Boho Style at it’s best!

These labels harness the romanticism of warmer weather, those long days that begin tucked under a beach umbrella and end with mojitos overlooking the ocean.  We are very pleased with the collections, it is a point of difference for us and we’re excited to be bringing these labels into Paddington!

Introducing Olive Woman


In July, Olive Home packed up her finest things – her designer clothes and precious accessories, her Italian home wares, and her most prized trinkets, and travelled two stores up Given Terrace. She dived in to paint samples and set about creating Olive Woman, a fresh new space for the stylish woman to come and visit, and shop to her heart’s content.


Taking pride of place next to Montrachet, Olive Woman is now the new Home for our favourite Australian designers (and some extra special international friends also!) We’re talking about the beautiful Ginger & Smart and Collette By Collette Dinnigan taking pride of place on one wall, mirrored by Fleur Wood and Suboo on the other. Splashes of vibrancy welcome you as your enter, courtesy of the newest creations available from these stunning designers.

The American powerhouses of colour, Tolani and DL1969 (yes, those jeans that everybody is talking about) compliment these innovative Australian designers perfectly, and create a flow of spectral vibrancy through the middle of the store.

Olive Woman is the long time dream of Paul Alcock, one of the directors of Olive Home. His desire to create a store that changes with the seasons, to go that extra mile in bringing the best in fashion design to Paddington, has been realised and the boys could not be happier!

A beautiful store for a beautiful locale – come and visit us soon!

We are pleased to bring you Cire Trudon – quite possibly the most luxuriously scented candles in the world.

Olive Woman is open 10am – 5pm Monday to Saturday. Phone (07) 3367 3743
