Welcome to The Nook, a characterful little shop located in a friendly,
creative corner of my home village of Frampton Cotterell, on the edge of
As its name suggests The Nook is small...but it has a lot going on! Its two
rooms are bursting with stylish vintage finds, unique handmade and
sustainable homewares & gifts, and beautiful craft materials for getting
creative at home.
Everything is carefully chosen and curated to inspire and help you
imagine how the products would work in your own space. I don't sell
anything I don't love and wouldn't put in my own home...which can
sometimes make parting with things a bit of a challenge!
In 2018 I turned my lifelong passion for interiors into a professional
Interior Design qualification. I now provide personal Interior Styling
Consultations as well as fun, hands-on Interior Design Workshops, which
teach the principles of interior design and how to apply them, before
creating a fabulous mood board to take home!
My approach is always about helping people work with what they've
got, then injecting a generous dose of style and originality to create a beautiful space that is unique to them and their needs - always mindful of budget and sustainability.
Sustainabilityis a theme that runs through all of The Nook's products, interiors advice, workshops... and my life in general! By choosing to buy vintage rather than new you are already doing your bit for the planet! The Nook products are all ethically sourced and chosen for their low impact on the planet's precious resources... as well as for their beauty.
All of The Nook's workshops make maximum use of found, sustainable or repurposed materials; whether turning fabric remnants into fabulous beeswax wraps, fashioning picture mounts from old pizza boxes and free wallpaper samples at a Merry Makers workshop or creating beautiful pebble art from beach finds at an Adult&Child craft session!
Hopefully this will inspire you to pay me a visit at The Nook, book a consultation or get involved in one of the friendly, fun & informative workshops that run throughout the year.
Hope to see you soon!
