‘Juliette at Home’ Drawing on her considerable experience of designing fragranced gifts for some of Britain’s most recognisable retail brands, and her involvement with some of the best known designer names of recent years, Juliette has created her own range of home wares, Juliette at Home.
The resulting collection reflects her own eclectic tastes and an understanding of today’s key design trends with a real sense of English tradition. If one thing unites this particularly individual collection, it is the quality of the design. With many acknowledgements to the past, including the recycling of teacups and plates, the company is in the forefront of reviving the past to create useful gifts for today.

Zoe collects everything!!! Books, patterns, postcards, vintage clothes, haberdashery from the 1930s onwards. Using these as inspiration she designs and make gorgeous, nostalgic gifts by hand, often using fabric or techniques of the time, but also mixing in a bit of 21st century technology for a quirky blend of old and new!
Zoe is passionate about keeping old techniques such as hand knitting alive and believe you can’t beat a handmade gift in today’s throwaway society! Using vintage fabrics and making everything by hand means it is impossible for her to recreate 2 products that are exactly the same. Photos on this website are just a small example her my work and they are being constantly updated.
Please contact Zoe for details of commissions and wholesale prices or any other enquiries.

Teacup Lights How-To
1. In a small pan set over a larger pan of simmering water, melt down old candles; clip the thermometer to the upper pot, and keep temperature at about 185 degrees. Remove old wicks with tongs.
2. Cut a piece of wicking to the cup’s height plus 2 inches. Clamp one end to a wick sustainer; tie the other end around a skewer. Dip wicking and sustainer into melted wax to coat them. Remove and stick sustainer to cup’s bottom.
3. Pour in the wax, stopping 1/2 inch below the cup’s rim. Allow wax to set, about 1 hour. The candle will harden with a well in the center. To even it out, use another skewer to prick a circle of holes about 1/16 inch deep around the wick. Pour in melted wax until surface is 1/4 inch below rim. Cut wick.
It creates such a wonderful table decoration and some great Sunday afternoon crafty fun.
Remember to check with your wedding venue that you can light candles!
