Behold! A new and wonderful initiative is about to be revealed.

We are very happy to be establishing a boutique DeCotesworth showroom in my locale.

We’ll be situated in a house at Otaki Beach in a studio set up by artists who previously owned the property. Plus we’ve added another room into the mix. This configuration will allow for bedroom, lounge and dining areas to showcase what we have to offer.

White and cream walls are not a part of our look because we see colour is an adventure and an inspired background for embellishment. We’ve painted the main showroom with a wash of metallic gold as the ultimate ‘neutral’ backdrop to the treasures on offer. There’ll be vintage, collectable and new products – mostly one of a kind. Years of my collecting and collating have been curated with emphasis on colour, charm and a bit of folly – the three guiding principles of DeCotesworth’s aesthetic.

The showroom will be ready for business from 10 – 4 on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays or by appointment. It’s a destination. We’re still painting and organising but we’ll announce very soon that we’re open. 

Our showroom, DeCotesworth, will offer opportunities to find a unique gift, or something special from artwork, mirrors, silverware, cushions, table and bed linen to cravats, books, flowers and jars of goodies. There’ll be luscious candles,  hand-covered note books, stationary, china and more, with a complementary gift wrap offered.

Every week there’ll be new additions and every month we’ll have a theme, based on colour or a particular style we love – Out Of The Blue, Gypsy Life etc. Let us know if you’d like to be on our announcement list for new arrivals and unveilings. Send us an email to [email protected] with DeCotesworth in the subject line and we’ll send you updates.

Our online shop will follow with ranges of table and bed linen and unique pieces for home and hearth.
