We love Australian shop Hunt & Bow‘s eclectic mix of furniture and home accessories, especially because they carry a mixture of vintage and modern pieces. So when we got the chance to get a peek inside the home of Alana Langan, the owner of Hunt & Bow, we absolutely couldn’t wait. Alana has translated the aesthetic of her shop perfectly into her home, and even though the home is a rental, she has filled the space with personal touches and plenty of style!

How and when did you start Hunt & Bow?
I started Hunt & Bow, originally as just an interior styling business which has grown to include an online shop, in 2012 after returning to my home town of Melbourne from London to have our first child. The shop launched in August this year and we recently ran our first pop-up shop in Melbourne, which was a blast! The shop stocks a colourful mix of vintage treasures and modern-day, Australian-designed homewares scouted on my travels. The items for sale include decor objects, cushions, rugs, vintage and refurbished furniture, and more recently we’ve added jewelry and bags. Hunt & Bow was born from my desire to create a platform to support independent local design in Australia and to meet the growing demand for on-trend vintage wares without the time-consuming ‘hunting’ that usually goes with it.
