If you haven’t heard of Rose & Grey before, and you live in the Manchester area, you’re in for a treat.
And I feel like I can genuinely say that because in my eyes, it’s quite simply one of those boutiques that has most definitely got something for everyone.
I wrote a post recently about some interiors stores I visited in London, and how much of a shame it was that I had to travel 2 hours to be able to touch and feel some of the products I’ve lusted after for so long online.
I know, I know – items can be returned. Stop trying to encourage me to shop more you enablers!
What’s wonderful about Rose & Grey for me is that they’re right on my doorstep, and their new showroom is opening tomorrow in Broadheath, Altrincham (South Manchester for those not local to the area).
I was invited to a little advance sneaky peek at the new showroom yesterday and it’s really so beautifull – proper impressive how many different themes you can create in one unit of a building.
From moody blues in panelled walls, to industrial lighting, to brass terrariums, to marble telephones, to swinging monkey lamps (which I’ve been wanting to buy for ages!), to colourful velvet soft furnishings. If any of this sounds like your cup of tea, then head down this weekend – open to the public on Saturday.
And the pineapple ornament that often pops up in my Instagram pics, to which I always get enthusiastic comments and questions on where it’s from? You guessed it, Rose & Grey.
ANYWAY. I’ll shut up now and let the pictures do the talking. I won’t give you the grand tour myself, but here are a few snaps from my visit, showcasing a taster of all the lovely interiors that you’ll no doubt want to buy.
And yes, even my little lady came along the visit!
She was bouncing on the lush velvet sofas, and grabbing at the terrariums, and boy did she have a good time! Thank you to the team at the store for being so accommodating for my curious toddler!
