Meet Nicole

With a background in marketing & design, Nicole Ward has an eye for the beautiful, unique and collectable. In 2010, she launched Green with Envy as an online store. Not long after she converted a rustic country shed on Matakana Road, into a stylish and welcoming store in Matakana.

Nicole travels frequently to personally select homewares, gifts, furniture and fashion, for Green with Envy’s design-savvy customers.

An award-winning shopping experience

Our inspiring store and incurable passion for customer service caught the attention of the judges at the 2017 International Homewares Association Global Innovation Awards (GIA) in Chicago, where Green with Envy was named one of five Global Honorees for Retail Excellence.

The judges praised our beautifully curated collection of homewares, and the attention to detail that elevates a simple transaction into a memorable and enjoyable shopping experience.
