baby, let's take things slow

We live in a world of fast fashion, instant messaging and next-day deliveries.
But this is your permission to slow things down.

Instead of jumping on trends you'll tire of next month, think about what makes you happy. Not what everybody else likes.

If you slowly fill your space with pieces that are not only beautiful but useful and long-lasting too, you'll be building a home, not just a house.

Whether you love to host grand parties, just a few friends, or prefer staying home alone, the pieces in your home matter. The cutting board in your kitchen, the coasters in your living room, the serving tray in your dining room - they're not just things. They're part of your story, part of your slow-home journey.

If you love this idea of a "slow home", you're in the right place.
And we're so happy you're here.

slow home essentials

White hand-addressed envelope on a wooden table with a pen beside it.

snail mail is the best

Instant messaging, texting, email... it's nice. It's handy. But in a world where everything is rushed (and only getter faster), it's nice to slow down.

There's something innately special and intimate about putting pen to paper and letting someone know they're thought of.

Think of opening your mailbox and seeing a hand-addressed envelope. What are you feeling? Curiosity, excitement, JOY?

Now think of a loved one opening their mailbox and the card is from you! You're the source of joy.

Now that is special.
