Hello I’m Kelly
Growing up in a Hamlet just outside of Launceston I am one of three children, Jenny and John my parents taught me quickly that a strong work ethic is important and gave us the best possible opportunity to succeed and play to our strengths.
My older Brother Matthew chased his dream of the Theatre and worked his way up to become a highly respected Stage Manager having toured on many famous shows such as Funny Girl, The Curious Instance of the Dog in the Nighttime and An Officer and a Gentleman to name but a few. He has recently opened his own soap and gift shop in Royal Tunbridge Wells called The Green Duck Emporium and coffee house.
Rosy my twin sister in a similar route to me took over her florist Odds and Buds in Tavistock from my mum in 2012. She has qualified to a level 4 florist and achieved a Bronze at the Chelsea Flower show in 2015 in the young florist of the year category I studied at Launceston college until 2009, following that I started an apprenticeship in sales alongside our family business.
In 2012 I started to run my own business in Ashburton (Devon) sourcing from antiques and collectables from auctions to retail items, throughout this time I have developed skills and experience in sourcing/buying, customer service, communication, marketing, IT, financial management, etc. My evolving style reflects my passion for elegant and relaxed interiors. Colleagues and clients compliment my ability to fuse old with new, such as mixing Victorian with mid-20th century furnishings & accessories accented by contemporary trends and colour. I personally source all the interiors for the shop which I love, you will often find me at Flea markets and Auctions in my spare time as it really is a source of enjoyment as much as a career.
My passion for Interior Design took me to The KLC School of design in Chelsea Harbour where I achieved a Merit.
We have a Whippet called Milly who comes to work with me and has become quite the hit on my shop Instagram, you will normally find her curled up having a snooze in the warmest spot possible.
