Nothing is too big an ask, we gift wrap, we deliver, we source products, we run events, we create stunning displays, everything we do is with the intention of bringing joy to our customer.  

The Founder

I grew up in an entrepreneurial family which always inspired me to want my own business. After completing a business degree, I worked in consultancy before spending a year out travelling and working in jobs that inspired me. I moved to London in 2010 with a new consultancy job but after only a few months I handed in my notice to finally take the leap to follow my dream of opening my own store.

I have always been obsessed with Fashion & Interiors and knew I had to create a store that allowed me to curate both my favourite things in one space. I only stock brands I absolutely adore and only buy products which I really want myself. I'm passionate about great customer service and absolutely love chatting to my customers, some of which are now best friends!
