Shop small, travel local and do good this summer!
Play • 28 min
It feels good to help out - whether it's supporting local businesses or people living and working in your fav holiday spot.

This year has been tough, especially for some in regional Australia. There’s been drought, bushfires and floods in some parts, followed by the impact of coronavirus, travel bans and the economic impact from the first recession in 30 years.

In this episode of At Home with Lauren Keenan, your authority on home lifestyle and interior design, we talk about how you can help make a difference this summer by shopping small, travelling local and supporting fellow our Aussies.

Hear from Grace McBride from Spend with Them, a massive social media movement profiling small businesses, food producers, designers and artisans in regional Australia affected by fires and the pandemic. And we take you to The Ruse, a very cool new Mexican bar and restaurant on the NSW South Coast with beautiful interiors to find out how they’re getting ready for a big summer ahead.

Here are the links for Lauren's Lovely List recommendations in this episode: Get more interiors inspiration watching Dream Home Makeover with Studio McGee on Netflix; buy new tablecloths from the team at Australian company Bed Threads in their new ‘Spreads’ range; and get ready for summer with beautiful UPF50+ beach umbrellas from Sunday Supply Co.

Get in touch if you have a topic you want us to talk about on the podcast. Same goes if you want to hire Lauren to help create your perfect home, from a room refresh to a renovation or new build - check out Lauren’s work.
