A big announcement (and an introduction)

So, you’ve probably noticed that it’s been rather quiet around here recently… I have a good excuse though. I’ve been working on something that’s been my dream for a long time and with the support of you – my wonderful readers – I am finally able to take the plunge and announce the forthcoming launch of the…

Decorator's Notebook Shop announcement

The concept is simple. Later this summer the Decorator’s Notebook shop will open its virtual doors to reveal a more personal and beautiful way to buy home accessories online. We’ll be weaving handcrafted and vintage products together with the stories behind them, as well as offering the styling ideas and decorating inspiration you know and love. The blog will continue as usual, with the addition of some very exciting new photography visits to some of Britain’s most talented designer-makers who will be handpicked to share their products and workspaces with us.

Which brings me onto the introduction. Meet my amazingly talented brother Joe – photographer, video maker and the man with the purse strings of our new business tightly in his grasp. We’ll be working together on all things shop-related, as well as the wonderful original photography that’s going to make this blog even better.

Those of you in London can come and meet Joe and I at the Startup Showcase at Somerset House next weekend (23rd and 24th March) where we’ll have a sneak peek of the Decorator’s Notebook collection, including a very exciting collaboration with Double Merrick (more on that to come). If you’re about it would be so much fun to see you there.

And I guess there’s just one last introduction. Me. Bethan. Your no-longer anonymous author. I cannot even begin to tell you how wonderful it is to finally ‘meet’ you!

    Ah Bethan I’m so pleased and proud for you. What a great thing that it’s all coming together and I can’t wait to have a virtual browse when you’re open. The pic of you and your brother is too cute. It looks like the cover of your folk album x

    Congratulations! Very exciting-sounding venture. I’ve been reading your blog for about a year or so now (after seeing it recommended in the Telegraph) and I love your aesthetic and the stunning photos you share. Look forward to seeing what I am sure will be lots of beautiful things!

    I’m hoping to start up a small shop this year too, so I feel really inspired by reading this…
