Home time

Natasha Murray is The Boho Thrifter, Papamoa finder of pre-loved treasures and happy hoarder of wicker everything.

For me, a house becomes a home when you make your own unique mark on it. I do this through my vintage finds, which each have their own character. I have an affinity with cane and rattan, and love to find things that complement the texture and tones of these pieces.

The Boho Thrifter came about through my passion for vintage and op-shopping. I was looking for additions to my collection of wall-hung baskets and thought, ‘Why not make sets for people to purchase?’, which then turned into, ‘Why not source other beautiful vintage items that people might like in their homes?’

My finds are super hard to let go of and pretty much fill every corner of the house. My cane shelving unit is always crammed with treasures that are available for sale – it’s kind of my little corner shop and my favourite part of the house.

Most of my time at home is spent with our kids. On the days they’re at kindy, I usually go out sourcing, but I do love to come home, make a coffee in one of my thrifted pottery mugs and sit down in my rattan and wood corner chair to plan the next day.
