Q&A With Artist and Designer, Heather Whitecross

We adore your shabby chic aesthetic! What inspired you to start creating shabby chic pieces? 

"Thank you! I have always had a love for interior design but not everything is budget friendly so I started recreating things I wanted and it kind of took off from there. Once my creativity started flowing I couldn't stop!"

Shabby chic and antiques go hand-in-hand. Do you have a favorite antique piece? 

"Oh I definitely have a few favorites mostly antique theater costumes. If I had to pick one it would be this amazing dusty pink ballet dress that I bought from a seller in France a few years back."

Your online shop is filled with gorgeous pieces! Do you have any advice for someone starting a creative online business? 

"Thank you! If selling antiques, only buy what you love. I have found most people want what you want. It also is nice to get to enjoy the pretty treasures before they go to their new home ;)"

Obviously we share a love of flowers! What is your favorite variety of flower?

"Definitely David Austin English roses! I have 28 different and plan on adding more. So fragrant and beautiful."
