The whole NAP thing started in 2004,
created by Carina Marescia and her
daughter, Tamryn, who share a love for
the functional and beautiful yet honest
and simple, preferably with a raw edge
and almost always neutral in it's colour of
charcoals, greys, white and stones. Every
now and then, a wild moment of colour
- we believe people and all growing things
are the colour, so our living space and
what we wear should almost always be
neutral, allowing us to be the colour in
We love texture, we love local and our
motto is "Believe in Homegrown", and if
you gonna have import, make sure it's
special, that you know where it comes
from, what you gonna do with it when
you done with it, and that you definitely
can't buy the same thing locally!
At NAP, we choose, make or design
things that speaks to our souls, stuff we
ourselves would love to spoil as a gift, to
use or keep in our own homes. Be it a
delicious block of homemade fudge, a
gorgeous 100% hand-woven bamboo
throw, chunky 3 wick candles, one-off
collectables or a black clay foot scrubba.
The NAP stores are bursting with
individually, locally selected items from
decor, clothes and accessories to stunning
furniture pieces. Indulgent finds include
olive oil hand cream, sexy silver, leather
and pewter jewellery, burning biofires,
comfy linen sofas, driftwood mirrors and
glass light balls. We love anything that
falls into the category of “FEEL GOOD”.
To truly experience all we have to offer,
you simply need to come and visit. Let
NAP fill all of your senses whether
you’re there just to browse, choose a
gift with meaning, decorate your living
space or simply to FEEL GOOD and
INDULGE. We would love to see you.
