For the last few months my sister Jane has been working with her friend Fiona sourcing decorative antiques for their Surrey based business Three Gates Gallery.
Fiona is a triple Gold medal winner at Chelsea Flower Show who has transferred her garden design skills to interiors and Jane brings her marketing background and expertise as an interiors photographer to the website.
I must admit I'm more than delighted to be able to show off some of their photos and beautiful interior set ups on the blog today and to share with you some of their stock.
Fiona has a great eye for decor and what's impressed me most is her ability to find really original decorative uses for vintage pieces. From repurposing bowling balls as bookends to creating lamps out of call ducks.
It's also been rather handy to have a sister with contacts to source exciting and original pieces for our new home. Though we aren't ready to decorate yet, I've already snapped up some of their lovely colourful lobster floats as well as a beautiful Amish metal star which now hangs in my studio. It's amazing how a few statement items can really add interest to a home.
Three Gates Gallery have a website and also hold invitation only sales twice a year. If you'd like to find out more about the sales, you can sign up to their mailing list here.
The exciting news is that Jane & Fiona have offered me one of their lovely repurposed pieces to give away. This clever reuse of an iconic mason jar makes a beautiful feature soap dispenser.
