The Borrowed Nursery x Good Property Collective
Lauren Lance, the creative genius behind one of Mermaid Beaches local favourites- the Borrowed Nursery.
Creative and progressive in curating plants and spaces, Lauren had a chat with our Director Sam Gibson about the sweet beginnings of her business story and the recent expansion of her business- Foliar.
Lauren began business purely out of helping a friend with table settings at events by collecting and putting together items such as pots, tins, and flowers etc. This concept has greatly grown over the past 8-9 years into what we see today with 3 retail venues, with one on the Gold Coast, one in Brisbane and the other in Melbourne, offering not just plants and pots to purchase but to hire. The 3 venues are also available for hire with stunning spaces filled with the most beautiful array of greenery to house events such as weddings, birthdays, workshops etc.
Lauren lives on the Southern end of the Gold Coast and appreciates the relaxed beach lifestyle that the GC has to offer- incredible sunsets, a warm climate and all within such close proximity to Byron Bay.
Lauren’s fav Mermaid Beach spot is a cheeky after work treat at Heven- Yah Gelateria (ours too) with another local business that pours quality and curation into what they do.
When it comes to property, Lauren has an incredible air bnb called the Hangar in Bilinga Beach (close to the airport) that is worth a stay, inspired by traditional rustic charm, this accomodation is perfect for a couples getaway by the beach.
