Ohhhh… Gretel!


Don’t say I didn’t warn you…






Gretel is a beautiful new online store set up by British Stylist Abby Kellet. As the UK interiors industry is so small I was racking my brain trying to recall her face, and then I remembered – I assisted her on my very first day of work experience on a shoot many moons ago, and that too on her very first shoot! So it is a small world indeed.

Gretel is based in Florida, and I know I’ve vowed to focus on European brands, but it’s such a joy to see fellow British stylists doing wonderful things that I really wanted to highlight her work.

As you can see the whole online store is styled amazingly, like a quirky and style conscious version of Hansel and Gretel’s chalet. Gretel also carries the most unique wares… below you can see the exquisite Marie Antoinetta porcelain bowls, sweet Smokehouse incense burner, Danish clay bowls, and  ethereal coloured glassware.
