From Kate to Catherine, Art Show

Shown here for the first time Nicola Tree’s latest series of portraits is part of our Royal Wedding extravaganza.

As with previous work the common thread is the subject’s name. Each Kate chose their own location; some also added an object as a reference to the wedding, from Royal Duchy Biscuits to a pew in the church where they married themselves.

Nicola is looking to create a body of work that spans generations and borders; seeking similarities and reflections on both name and personality of her subjects. Please join us for a glass of wine.

"Mad Men" style....

This month we're looking towards clearing out the wardrobe of those heavy winter garments and finding those little gems you can wear in warmer weather time and time again. Spring is definitely in the air and I for one am looking forward to getting out the Spring collection.
Floaty florals,block colours,1950's clinched waist and metallics are trending right now.
One of my favourite key looks is the 1950's one.
It's pretty easy finding those key,classic pieces and a great way to introduce your own take on fashion is by wearing one off Vintage frocks. Of course looking for original vintage dresses can be difficult but we do get a nice selection coming into the Beautiful Attire boutique!
As a fan of all things 1950'5/60's Americana we're in love with the Mad Men style silhouette and of course Joan Harris comes to mind. We can see her in her this pretty cobalt silk number in the offices of Sterling Cooper. Sexy,feminine and professional just like Joan!

new year new direction!

The new year brings all kinds of resolutions,new energy,new dynamics etc. and so Beautiful Interiors is ready to blossom into something "more then just a local gift shop"!
So far we've had a ball offering our shoppers some pretty great and unusual stuff but for 2011 we have plans to make things even better.
We're going back to the beginning and we're slowly returning to being primarily a gallery and a gift shop showcasing some mainstream items but more and more hand made Design Maker items.
Plus we've added a POP UP shop where guest designer makers come in and have their very own area selling their goods directly to the public.
It's all very exciting and we'll be adding more events and layers to the shop through out the year!
We hope you'll like this new direction and continue to shop with us!
