Our Story

Invite The Coastal Lifestyle Into Your Home

I’m so glad to have you here with me sharing my passion for beautiful homewares, interior design, unique furnishings and most of all the Australian coastal lifestyle that we all love.

Hi my name is Jacinta Bishop, owner and founder of Salt Living.

At Salt Living we are dedicated to sourcing the highest quality natural, ethical, sustainable and handmade homewares and coastal décor pieces from Australia and around the world.

We are constantly searching for the very best international Fair Trade Artisans and boutique Australian Designers to offer unique, hand crafted products that bring that calming, fresh ocean feeling into your home, and into your life everyday.

My Inspiration

Whilst travelling all over the world, teaching English and experiencing many of the beautiful cultures and landscapes this planet has to offer, I was inspired to create a place where likeminded women could find unique home décor pieces and interior design furnishings that reflected their individuality and love of the salty seaside way of life.

After returning home, I wanted to gain more knowledge to support my passion, so I studied a Bachelor of Visual Arts and Design Futures (Interior Environments) before opening the Salt Living online concept store in early 2014.

The immediate success of this online boutique store allowed me to open our very first brick and mortar store in the new Strand at Coolangatta in 2015.

I knew there must be others out there who also wanted alternatives to the mass-produced, cheap import products available everywhere, but to be honest I have been overwhelmed by the positive response.

It’s because of people like you that I’m able to live my passion, and I am dedicated to continuing to bring you the very best handmade, natural and individual beachside homewares and home décor products from local and international creatives.

We have new stock arriving every week so please browse our online store or visit us in store at The Strand, Marine Parade, Coolangatta.

Warm regards,

Jacinta Bishop
