Here at the Ruby Orchard we are inspired by lots of different things and people. We follow blogs and Facebook pages about design, furniture, soft furnishings, decor – all sorts of things! We love to celebrate people who have taken a leap of faith and followed their passions and are living their dreams because we are doing the very same thing here, and it’s lovely.
Here is our list of people we would love to meet:
1. Heather Moore – Skinny La Minx – a much celebrated self-taught illustrator & designer. Heather started Skinny laMinx as a hobby in 2006, & now sells her range worldwide. Cushion covers, purses, napkins, tea towels, bags – all sorts of goodies – and we stock them here at the Ruby Orchard.. Follow her on Instagram for regular updates on her gorgeous things.
2. Lisa Swerling & Ralph Lazar – Harold’s Planet – this UK based team draw and design a funny and sweet range of cards and stationery. I love their fabulous imaginations and their dedication to wine and chocolate!
3. Cath Kidston – the creator of the brand: Cath Kidston was inspired by her English country childhood. Her brand covers accessories, fashion, bags, wall paper and stationery. Her success story is such an inspiration – the Cath Kidston brand is 20 years old this year!
