The name sums it up really. Brave Boutique is where to go if you want something a little bit unusual. Something you won’t see on the highstreet or on most online shopping sites. But to shop there you have to be just a little bit brave. The homewares they sell will make you stand out from the crowd. They will become talking points at dinner parties and they won’t please everybody. But that’s the point. Who wants the same as everybody else anyway?
The duo behind the brand are Fiona Ellis and Scott Hendrie. Working together for the last 4 years, the concept for Brave Boutique grew organically from an inherent desire to make beautiful and unique pieces of art & furnishings for the home.
In her previous incarnation, Fiona was one of the most respected names in the modelling industry. Harpers Bazaar’ described her as a ‘Bona-fide expert on beauty’ and now Fiona has turned her passion for beauty in the direction of design & interiors. Alongside Fiona is Brave Boutique’s passionate and accomplished artist and designer, Scott Hendrie.
I’m already lusting over the Crocodilo Vinyl wallpaper (see the first image above), the many animal skull sculptures, the stunning bird cage lights and the atmospheric black LED candles. Oh, and check out the snake draft excluders. They are scarily lifelike!
Fiona also offers a consultancy service. Either in the showroom or in your own home where she will no doubt push you into ever more adventurous colour schemes and help you create a backdrop for all of this sensuous loveliness.
Are you brave enough?
