Introducing Heather

Hi guys, Heather here! I feel like I already know you, and you know a fair bit about me – or at least my design aesthetic. I became Kelly's business partner a little over a year ago, but you’ve been seeing pics of my apartments in London since Kelly moved here about 3 years ago. Together we plan to grow the business, by adding more of the things we love to the shop. I’ve spent the last 10 years building tech companies and am now excited to grow a company around something I love – interiors.
