Christine - Cur8ed Home
Tell us about yourself: My husband and I have always had a deep connection to the Sunshine Coast, in fact, my husband Ernie was born and raised here. We came to the coast every year for over 20 years for our holidays and always regretted having to go home. We moved here in 2011 with our two boys and Ernie had a really tough go with commuting and long work hours before we took the leap to rely entirely on self-employment. But it was always our dream to own storefront businesses on the coast and to help add to the charm of Gibsons.
The Turners are no stranger to small business, having owned 14 between them and being self-employed since their early 20's. The couple specialize in small business start-ups, creating brand new businesses and eventually selling them as turn-key businesses.
Tell us about your business: The Turners opened Sunshine Coast's newest furniture + decor store, Cur8ed Home, located on Hwy 101 in upper Gibsons in March of 2017. Christine is well reputed for her "great eye" since opening her two boutiques on the coast. (Embellish Emporium, a gift and decor store in upper Gibsons, and Flourish Boutique, a fashion + gift shop located in historic Gibsons Landing.) Her ability to curate collections of unique products and her passion for home decor is what inspired the name Cur8ed Home.
Cur8ed Home offers just that; a carefully curated selection of new and OOAK (one of a kind) home furnishings and decor. Just like most of our homes, there's a mix of new, vintage, and pre-loved items that tell a story and make our home as unique as our personality.
"Our beautiful showroom, customer service, eclectic selection and affordable prices are what set us apart from other local furniture and decor shops. We are thrilled to have a professional in-house designer,Tara of de Grandmaison Interiors, on our team and available for complimentary consultations."
What's your favourite thing about the Sunshine Coast: The people, the scenery, the small-town charm, the fresh air, pure water...I don't know where to stop!!!
