Pimp my garden shed: new trend
Homeowners are upping the ante in the decorating stakes and splashing cash on items previously thought of for practical purposes only.
Homewares boutique Sunday Society, based at Coorparoo, sells everything from lamps to lounges, cushions to bookends, and recently added luxury hoses and hose nozzle sets to their stocked lines.
Sunday Society owner Eliza Ditchmen said homeowners were increasingly paying attention to the "extra touches" when it came to decorating their property.
"Often in life it's the small details that enhance our experiences and the same applies to our homes," Ms Ditchmen said.
"Adding a glamorous hose and nozzle set to your beautiful garden is one of those interesting little details that surprise visitors in those spaces."
The Luxe Garden Hose comes in seven different colours, from black swan and white snake for those who like to keep it monochrome, to rusty rose and carribean kiss for a colour injection, and will set you back $159 for 20m.
For those who want a little extra luxury, there is a gold version of the hose for $219.
Forget about garish green and orange hose nozzles, with nozzles to match the hose available for $79.
If matching colours are not enough, a leopard print hose nozzle ($103) can be picked up, or a brass or chrome nozzle ($167) for the ultimate in class.
The nozzles come in a box with the neatly lettered phrase, "For glamorous people with dirty nails."
Don't forget about hanging your hose - a regular reel won't do.
Grab a claw wallmount hanger ($279) or a reindeer hose hanger ($299) for the final touches.
