Small Business Friday - Penelope Hope

Small Business Friday with Penelope Hope - cushions on a blue chair and on the floor interiors

I haven't shared a Small Business Friday creative with you in a while, and I must admit I dropped the ball while preparing to go away on holidays at the beginning of April. This interview and photos have been with me for a month now, so without further delay I would like to introduce you to a brand that can liven up your interiors with its colours and designs. And not only that, but it is run by a very passionate lady (who is as beautiful outside as she is inside)! Please meet Nadia Newton - the designer/ owner of Penelope Hope.

Penelope Hope is a lifestyle brand, that celebrates colour and pattern and expressing your own personality. They exclusively design and produce a colourful and glamorous range of homewares and accessories. Nadia launched the brand in 2014 after taking a career break to raise her young children and she has been non-stop ever since! If you are into interior design, and actually live in Guernsey you must have passed her colourful shop - I envy you!

Everything is produced in small batches with a whole lotta love, designed in Guernsey (by Nadia) and manufactured in Great Britain with the upmost of care and attention to detail.

I caught up with Nadia to get the highs and lows of being an entrepreneur in this industry. I was really motivated by her responses to my questions. She is really going for it so I hope she will be an inspiration to many of you. Dare to dream big, plan and use all resources available to you!
