A passion for finding "beautiful old things" to create a unique and interesting feel to your home and garden.  

I have always had a passion for sourcing beautiful vintage/retro pieces to create a unique, nostalgic and interesting feel to my home and garden. 

A change in circumstances has provided me with the opportunity to stop my daily commute to London, take the plunge and "live the dream",  by launching my own online shop, Restored 2 b Loved. 

Restored 2 b Loved is a small family run business, which aims to provide a tailored service; you can browse and order on line and in addition we also welcome a phone call or email. We are happy to talk about an item on sale in the shop or talk about sourcing a particular piece, colour or style .     

Each piece being sold is an original, which we have sourced from varying locations in England and France. Some will be in their original pre loved state, which is all part of the charm. 

Much of the furniture has been restored/revamped/upcycled. I always use only finest quality paint and wax. I love Farrow and Ball colours and regularly use this paint. I also use Annie Sloan paint which can provide, greater texture and mix of colours particularly for creating a Shabby Chic effect. You will find much of the home collection compliments the colours and style of the furniture on sale in the shop.

In the garden I have been hugely influenced by the creativity and practicality of cottage gardeners. I love using architectural pieces to add interest and charm and much of the garden collection has been chosen with a cottage garden style in mind.

Each item will have a clear picture and description, but I can provide further details of any piece you may be interested in.     

I hope you love the beautiful pieces in each collection as much as I do and you are able to take away something that you can enjoy in your own home and garden.
