Lovely Lucy

One of my favourite bloggers; the lovely Lucy at The Design Files,
has blogged about MAIIKEstore!  AWESOME!!

warm words nice night

It was fitting that a on such a cold night as last Friday, Maiike opened it’s nice warm doors to celebrate the opening of the labels first retail shop.
A joint venture between Aly Peel and Feride Peel, the store itself is warm, inviting and beautiful to cosy up in.  Cleverly put together from an empty shell (in a whirlwind matter of months) and carrying on the unique theme of the brand. From floorboards that were pulled from a tired old house, to recycled furniture and mismatched ornaments. It’s the type of place where everything has tactile appeal- the toys lined up like soldiers in the window, to the funky little rompers and even adult sized wears- and an abundance of small children adorning the floor space (not a permanent fixture).
Nice words by: Meg Hutchens who interviewed me on the opening night of our shop.
