Idyll Banter

  • Idyll Home - the story so far

    We have come a long way since I started Idyll Home from my kitchen three years ago now and although it continues to be a rewarding experience, it has been a very busy and at times stressful three years. We have overcome many of the problems that most new businesses face, starting up during a recession along with a huge case of online fraud that almost brought us to our knees. Luckily we managed to carry on and learned lots of lessons along the way and I still get excited every time I get a new delivery of goodies!

    Last year we moved house, partly because we needed more storage space (the spare bedroom just wasn't cutting it anymore). We moved to a truly Idyllic location surrounded by rolling hills and woodlands, not the easiest location for deliveries but no neighbours to bother at least. My partner Steven has also left his job working for a bank to join the world of online marketing, which is quite the transition from finance to furnishings!

    In December, (after several years of persistent pressure from my daughter Elsa) I finally gave in and Ralph the Irish Setter joined the household, much to the initial horror of our cats. Having a dog has forced us to get out from in front of the computer and enjoy the great outdoors.

    Here is a picture of Ralphie enjoying the blue bells near Idyll Home HQ!

    When we're not pandering to our princely puppy I still seek out new and exciting products, which I hope you think are as lovely as I do! We've geared up for summer with some fresh ideas for the Garden and Outdoors, and, if you are lucky enough to make it to the beach then there are a few stylish Personal Accessories which are just the job for a day in the sun.

    Whatever your summer holds, Idyll Home and I hope it's a happy one.
