How did your Business come about?
My husband, Ryan and I have always loved interiors and are both creative types- always thinking and dreaming. I am a preschool teacher by "trade" and was working as a private nanny before and after I had our daughter- as much as i enjoyed it, that was never something that truly satisfied me. After we had our daughter it made us reevaluate- to find a way to do what I love and also have the flexibility to run my own business and look after Luxe... so after 12 months of talking and planning, White Horse Home was birthed in early 2012.
Is there a story behind the name?
I'd love to say that there's some elaborate story, but there's no show stopper here... Ryan has been running his own merchandising company for the past 6 years and "White Horse" is part of his existing company name. Not to mention that white horses are absolutely beautiful, strong and majestic. White Horse Home was an easy decision!
What do you get up to when you are not working?
We have an almost three year old daughter, Luxe, so she keeps us busy... We love escaping the city and taking drives down the south coast... spending time with our amazing friends and family is always top of the list when we have spare time. For really tuning out, Ryan loves to skate whereas time out for me is going for a run or to the gym.
I know it is hard but can you name your favourite item in your collection?
Ooooooo this is hard! For the moment it'd have to be our Shuttlecock cushion.
Do you have a wishlist on DTLL? What are your top two at the mo?
Ok, so all of the Jonah and the Girl shoes are top of list- I love all the colours...Luxe has three pairs so far, but as kids' feet grow so fast I think it's justified to want some in every colour!
And, as we have an impending third birthday on the horizon I have been eyeing off one of the Incy wrought iron beds for her "big girl room"... always the way, shopping for my child more than I do for myself these days!
