Botanic and Luxe was created by two best friends who have a passion for design, beauty, and a holistic lifestyle.  Ariel and Leilani grew up on Kaua’i, surrounded by the magic of nature.  They attribute their love for botanicals to their upbringing on this beautiful garden island. Their childhood was spent building tree forts, playing at the beach, and adventuring. During the summer they would sell flowers, leis, and other handmade creations in front of their homes.

After high school, Ariel went off to study landscape architecture and horticulture at Cal Poly State University, San Luis Obispo. It was there that she developed her eye for design and passion for aesthetics. Leilani studied holistic nutrition and developed a deep-rooted love for the importance of community and health. After years of building their individual skill sets, the childhood best friends established Botanic and Luxe, a lifestyle store for dreamers, lovers and seekers of all things beautiful.

At Botanic and Luxe you will discover thoughtfully curated home goods, unique gifts for any occasion, and our favorite home accents: plants. We strive to support local artisans and fair trade organizations whenever possible. We invite you to explore our world of design, botanicals, and soulful living.
