Our Story

“For the beautiful everyday”

Etko living sources an eclectic, earthy and unique array of everyday living pieces. 

We are a mix of fashion & home, with the collections hand picked for lasting value. When you can’t find Jilly in store, she is spending her time searching for new and unique pieces for you to discover. 

Homewares, cushions, wall art, jewellery & other accessories – just some of the collections you will find in store and be loved in homes for years to come. 

For a gift, or to buy for you… shop the collections from a range of our standout labels including Papaya, Glasshouse, Elk, Sybella, Palas and Imagine, just to name a few.

At Ekto Living, you will be welcomed by our team who is on hand to assist you with your choices for both your home, your wardrobe and the perfect gift you are looking for.


My Journey

After 5 years at Malvern Papershop, Jilly and Colin have made the shift to Ekto Living.

We all have a story to tell.

Mine began in rural South Australia, then a brief nursing career, before 3 children and experiencing all that comes with a fulfilling family life.

A detour via residence in Europe & worldwide travel opened my eyes to new cultures, values and perspectives. There is another world outside Adelaide, one increasingly reflected in our daily lives.

Adelaide beckoned. How I arrived in retail is a story by itself. But after all, England is “A Nation Of Shopkeepers” – Napoleon 1794.

After 5 years at Malvern Papershop, Ekto Living is our next challenge and the memories at Malvern Papershop will always be cherished. The seed had been planted. 

I can’t wait to meet you,

Jilly
