Gretel Home

I read about the best new online shop today on Daily Candy called Gretel. Have you seen it? For those of you who haven’t, you’re in for a real treat. The website design and product photography is gorgeous, very sophisticated, fresh and young but beyond that, they have some of the most beautiful selections in a single shop, it’s lovingly curated and just fantastic. Gretel was founded last year by British interior stylist Abby Kellett who clearly had an eye for modern design.

I love the smokehouse — a very modern take on a classic German design for incense that you can frequently find here in the winter during Christmas markets. And the Helgo candle holders — yes, please!

I also like their store windows,”Just as a store changes its window displays, every season we will present our products in a new light. Welcome to Gretel’s Windows.”

    building-block candleholders are ingenious. Need to save for those. Why does beauty have to have a price-tag?

    Great, great post and cute pics – really nice and modern. I saw another blog today that captured some of their more unique items here.
    Gretel Home really is a great resource and after seeing your two blogs, I can’t wait to shop there;o)
