The faces behind Amber Anais Interiors
With the launch of our new online store, we thought it would be perfect timing to introduce ourselves to those who may not know the people behind Amber Anais Interiors.
So we are Amanda and Amber, a mother and daughter duo working together to create a space for all things beautiful in the home.
Where does the name, Amber Anais come from?
Amber and Anais are my daughters. I think choosing a name for your business is probably the hardest decision to make whilst setting up, but Amber Anais always felt right and I think after all these years, I was obviously familiar with saying their names. You would have thought so anyway! Also, Anais is french and many of our products we stock in the shop are of french taste so it felt natural.
When did you launch Amber Anais Interiors?
I first started Amber Anais Interiors in 2017 by opening my shop in West Kirby, on the Wirral. It was a little later though we decided to push into the ever expanding marker of e-commerce.
What made you want to launch Amber Anais Interiors?
My original trade was book keeping, so over the years I had developed an understanding of what it meant to start the foundation of any business. I knew what it took to keep a business running efficiently, the not so glamorous side of managing a shop. That being said, I always had an obsession with interiors and have always been the one to help my friends and family style rooms in their home. So after a few years of dithering, I finally took the plunge and opened our first shop.
Who is in the Amber Anais team?
Over the years, I have been fortunate enough to have the amazing support from my family, who will always help me from flattening down cardboard boxes to covering the shop for me whilst I sneak off to have my lunch. We started to expand our shop team and hired Sue, who many of you will already know if you have visited our shop. Sue has a true talent for styling, especially our display windows. Amber, my eldest daughter has always been a key part of the team too, helping here and there when she was home from university. Once graduating she became an employee and now has the responsibility of our social media and online store. She is most definitely more tech savvy than I am.
What inspires Amber Anais Interiors?
I have always had a love for french and modern country interiors which will always be a classic. Especially french furniture, which I have always tried to base my styling around. As well as being aesthetically pleasing, I have always found french furniture to be of the highest material quality. I've never been one to have a whole range of furniture, I adore mixing materials and finishes. To make this cohesive is by using a neutral palette. This has most definitely inspired Amber Anais Interiors.
What are your goals for the future with Amber Anais Interiors?
We would of course love to expand the business and continue to grow by potentially opening more shops. However, we are conscious that we never want to stray from our family values and move away from the style we have already created for so many of our already loyal customers, in a relatively short space of time. Moving with trends and cultures is something we will naturally do as time progresses and we hope all of you will join us along the way.
