Something Gorgeous is a blog written by Giulia and Toni who share their passion for everything “home”, they write about family life, renovating, interior design, homewares, gardening, cooking and their everyday lives.

Today on Diy-Decorator Giulia and Toni are sharing some of their favourite homeware stores from Newcastle with us.


Empire is a family owned and operated local business, which is a treasure trove of unique, one off furniture pieces and accessories sourced locally and globally. The owner,  Moyna, offers a personal service showing  genuine interest in her customers needs. Over the years we have both purchased many pieces for our homes from Moyna, as her stock often comes with a history or story to tell from around the world.  Whenever you visit Empire, you can expect to find an ever-changing eclectic mix of cushions, tables, art, mirrors and lighting fixtures of all shapes and sizes.
