The Founders

Interior Design Duo Mike and Mandy Hartnig are in many ways the quintessential couple. As successful designers, renovators, and merchandisers with over three successful decades of dedication to the creation and operation of beautiful, soulful retail spaces that essentially inspire well -being and relaxation. Their combined skills ooze creativity with a thorough knowledge of their craft.

They certainly bring spaces to life!

From early days of refurbishing 5- star hotels and resorts, such as Peppers Hotels & Resorts, through to large hotel operations groups such as Meriton, Meridian and Oaks Group, Mike and Mandy with passionate consistency, supported and encouraged local manufacturers, designers, and suppliers along their creative journey whilst also working with smaller motel/hotel operators, always designing, and refurbishing residential homes as needed.‍

They have lived and travelled throughout Australia and overseas, sharing their passion and creativity, living, and creating business opportunities within their communities, inspiring homeowners, and artisans along the way.

Their new venture as The Living Space is a culmination of everything they enjoy, not only in sourcing beautiful homewares and bringing creative makers to their audience, but an awareness of conscious consumption whilst providing a nurtured inventory of all things needed to live well.
