Yes that’s right, summer is on it’s way (yay) and we are chatting to Milly from Mildred&Co who not only have a gift registry but also have a super fab online store, we edit our favourites for summer.
Tell us a little about the journey for your business so far, and what we can expect from you in the near future?
Mildred&Co has been running for four years now and although we are predominantly an online wedding gift registry, we also have a gift store that you can shop from for any occasion – or simply to indulge yourself! We are continually expanding this side of Mildred&Co and have recently added a kids section as we have found that many of our past couples have got married and had a baby so are now shopping at Mildred&Co for their kids nursery or for baby shower gifts.
Where do you find your inspiration? What drives your passion for Mildred&Co?
I love Instagram and probably spend far too much time on it (my husband certainly thinks so!) but I find it so inspiring and am continually finding new brands or people to follow and be mesmerized by. My passion for Mildred&Co is driven by my love for beautiful objects and also the desire to provide the perfect gifts for any occasion, whether is a wedding gift, for someones birthday or an anniversary present.
What is your favourite room in your home, and why
At the moment it is probably my daughter’s room, Willow Frankie, as I had such fun setting it up before she was born and am continually adding to it. It started off very monochromatic as we didn’t know the sex but it is slowly getting more girly. My latest purchase was a beautiful Armadillo Sierra rug which we sell on Mildred&Co and I just love it. These days I spend more money on dressing her and on her room than I do on myself! Gulp!
Where the heart is! As cheesy as that is, I think a home should be warm and inviting rather than so ‘on point’ that you’re too scared to touch anything! I love a more minimalist aesthetic but there needs to be an element of comfort as well as some personality shining through.
