Leilah – born at night – lives in Avalon

I had a mini road trip up the peninsular last week, stopped in Avalon to check out the shops, this luxe interiors store Leilah caught my eye...now I know why Rouba Alamein's store in Newport was a must stop shop it was called Manyara Home.

“Night, the beloved.

Night, when words fade and things come alive.

When .. analysis of the day is gone and all that is truly important becomes whole and sound again….”

– Antoine de Saint-Exupery.

Born at night. Raised on adventure. Grown in the exotic. Refined by love.

Bohemian wanderings gather luxury homewares and textiles from around the globe.

Close out the day, cocoon in beauty, soak in inspiration.


Leilah was born at night, an inspiration created from Rouba Alamein’s years in the up- late wedding, events and interior styling industry.

Early beginnings saw Rouba hand beading fresh water pearls on raw silk for wedding and corporate invitations, lovingly placing raw linen napkins and tablecloths, dropping chandeliers over dining tables, creating magical temporary lounge rooms and portable dining rooms in exclusive properties and marquees for the who’s who around Australia.

Blossoming into the iconic Manyara Home* store and inspiring a flush of new mode interior stores. ( * Manyara Home – two beautiful Sydney stores, Mosman and Newport NSW which Rouba founded and nurtured. The Stores found loving new owners early 2015 )
