Podcast cover
Read more

Hannah and Branko, a young couple from Adelaide, South Australia share a mutual passion for vintage decor, design and indoor plants. Storytellers Workshop was born through their love of collecting unique, one-off treasures for their own home. Hannah and Branko  believe that a home is a sanctuary and that we are able to enhance our mood by surrounding ourselves with objects that are meaningful to us. Being thoughtful about what we place in our homes means that over the years you will have a space that is rich in character and a reflection of your own personality – and that kind of home will never go out of style!

Join Jo as she chats with Hannah and Branko about the role indoor plants play in styling, vintage trends and even how to clean and care for vintage cane and brass planters.
