Mitch and Mark

Reality TV super stars Mitch and Mark not only live on the Northern Beaches, they’ve opened up a divine homewares store here called mitch and mark HOME.

Super stylish couple Mitch Edwards and Mark McKie need little introduction. Recently announced as hosts of Location, Location, Location Australia (due to air later this year), and champions of the Australian reality TV show The Block, the popular pair are also well-known locals around the Northern Beaches and proud owners of a divine homewares store in Newport.mitch and mark HOME grew from the duo’s desire to create unique and beautiful interiors that reflect individual lifestyles. They launched the brand online in November 2020 selling “decor objects to add joy, visual and aromatic bliss,” including luxe body products and scented candles. In late 2021, Mitch and Mark put their impeccable sense of style to greater use and opened the flagship store. It also sells an exclusive range of fashion inspired by Mitch‘s wardrobe, and only available from mitch and mark HOME.

“It was Mitch who decided we’d open our homewares store,” Mark explains. “It started as a pop-up and now it’s become a permanent store in Newport. We opened the store around 3 weeks after The Block 2021 auction, which we won, so we had a whirlwind few weeks getting ready to open the doors!”

You could spend hours online scrolling through mitch and mark HOME’s luxurious range of fragrances, decor, furniture, lighting, mirrors and gifts, or simply pop in-store for a browse. When asked what everyone should buy right now, Mark replies “everything,” before narrowing it down to their stylish range of cushions and throws.

“We have lots of fabulous cushions that can change up your interior look so easily,” he says. “We also have our own range of throws and coverlets, and without a ‘middle man’ they’re wonderfully affordable, which allows our customers to change up their décor easily.”

Opening a store was a natural progression for Mitch and Mark who have decades of experience in renovations, interior design and styling. Mitch is a qualified interior decorator and brings fun and glamour to the store, while Mark complements Mitch’s creativity, offering structure and strategic management.

“You’ll definitely see us working in the store,” Mark says. “Depending upon our other commitments, we are usually there most days, and pretty much all weekend. We love meeting people and helping them with any of their design choices in-store.”

It’s also an easy commute to work for the couple who moved to the Northern Beaches in December 2019.

“We started looking at property about a year or two before we moved, and couldn’t find the right thing,” Mark explains. “We had been looking at Palm Beach and Avalon, but then we found the perfect home in Newport. We walked in and basically bought it the same day!”

“It’s such fun being part of the Northern Beaches community and we’ve had so many people from the local community become wonderful customers,” Mark adds. “We also love welcoming people who visit from all over Sydney and interstate – we are lucky to have such a widespread customer base. Our online store has been growing, with customers all over Australia and also internationally.”

Juggling work and life isn’t easy for the reality stars and property developers, but they’re thriving in both business and the day-to-day.

“We both like to be busy, so we find ways to get everything done – sometimes it’s tough, but you just dig in and keep going – and we look for the fun and joy in what we’re doing,” Mark says.

So whether it’s gorgeous throws and cushions, fabulous shirts or stylish homewares for your dining table, pay a visit to mitch and mark HOME where you’re assured of finding style, colour and joy.
