“Have nothing in your houses that you do not know to be useful or believe to be beautiful.” William Morris.
The name for the new brand came to me whilst sitting chatting with a very good friend over coffee. For a long time I think I had been trying to over complicate the name be too clever with it. I felt like there was a pressure to be too quirky and design led and that just isn't me! I like simple and intentional design choices and far from being trend led, I believe pieces should be functional but still beautiful. Grey felt like it said everything in just one word and hence the The Grey Home Company was born.
I love the colour grey - you will often find me wearing at least one item of grey clothing and far from being dull and boring it offers a warmth and depth to many interior spaces.
Grey is heavily influenced by Scandinavian design and a desire to bring inspirational and intentional interiors under one roof from across Europe and closer to home. Each item is chosen to stand beautifully on its own or in a collection with complementary items from the same range.
I have been sourcing a wide range of lifestyle interiors for the past 4 years and now it feels right to house them within their own space alongside our expertly crafted and beautifully selected fresh flower offering by Stems.
In the next few years I will be working on building my own collection of products for the home which we will be truly and uniquely Grey.
Proudly we are now also a member of the Trouva community - a collection of the very best independent bricks and mortar boutiques focussing on providing you with beautiful objects for your home. This is a very exciting new venture as it allows us to get our products out to a global audience, something that has been a long-term vision of mine.
