When I first arrived at Home Mate, I could say that this is one of my favorite shops in Bali. The atmosphere was calm yet charming, and I couldn’t get my eyes off all beautiful things displayed at this little gem located in Petitenget, Seminyak, Bali. All the good things at Home Mate are carefully curated and remind you of..well..home.
Home Mate is also a small cafe with delicious sweets to accompany your tea or coffee. Oriana, the friendly representative of Home Mate showed us their various kinds of Bellocq tea and fresh baking cakes. So, you can indulge your taste bud while admiring selected well made home decor, furniture and little stuff displayed at this simply decorated store.
What I love about this store is definitely the product. All these stuff were curated by the owner, Imelda Widjaja who’s also the lady behind Jewel Rocks. But unlike Jewel Rocks which often brought more vibrant, free spirited soul with nature vibe through their line of accessories. Most of the items that were displayed in Home Mate are simple, mute colored goods that remind me much of Japanese influenced products. The prices are quite reasonable too. I bought a wooden serving board for Rp85.000.
And if you visit Home Mate, you’ll also get a lovely bonus, Jewel Rocks. These 2 stores are connected, so you can also browse these famous beautiful handmade charms too. And I can really say they have good quality because I’ve been wearing my Jewel Rocks accessories for more than 1,5 years and they’re survived! (and FYI, I’m that kind of person who likes to wear the same bracelets and necklace every single day).
Home Mates is also selling homemade bath soap and organic food products. If you consider yourself a homebody and you always love to make your home a lovely place to live, or you simply need a thoughtful and unique souvenirs to bring home. This store is worth to visit.
Thank you Oriana and Home Mate for your warm welcome. It was such a lovely afternoon.
