About Holmes Living


Holmes Living design, create and sell eclectic, handmade homewares that add a personal finishing touch to any interior setting. Each and every item is lovingly produced by surface designer Em Holmes, from her home based studio in South Melbourne, Australia. 

The range of cushion covers, macrame plant hangers, natural rope baskets and other plant decor make styling your home simple and effortless. Each item is designed to fit both traditional and contemporary spaces, allowing you to fill your home with unique character and charm. Emily believes that interiors should be as unique and individual as the people who live in them whilst still being functional spaces that make daily life easy and enjoyable. 

Emily has been passionate about design for over 10 years and has worked in a variety of different design fields. Her design journey began in 2008 when she began studying Surface Design for Fashion & Interiors at the the University of Huddersfield, UK. After learning multiple printing and textile dying techniques, Emily fell in love with pattern, print and texture. Passionate about the use of natural materials, traditional mark making, craft and printing techniques and sustainable design Emily aims to bring her signature eclectic, diverse, layered style to every project she works on. 

Holmes Living was born in early 2019, shortly after Emily completed Design Fundamentals for Interiors and Interior Design and Decoration for Living at RMIT University, Melbourne.
