Today, I would like to take you on a virtual tour of one of my favourite shops in Brisbane – Blake & Taylor, Paddington. It is one of the most beautiful shops I’ve been inside, Owner, Ellie Taylor, has curated a wonderful collection of new and vintage pieces that is a visual delight.
Blake & Taylor offers so much; homewares, clothing and gifts all displayed so beautifully. There is a small cafe area serving tea and coffee and you can sit on the back verandah and enjoy views across hilly Paddington. As well as offering ready made homewares, Blake & Taylor offer a full interior design service that custom makes curtains, blinds and soft furnishings from their selection of quality fabrics. They have manufactured their own range of furniture paint, waxes and stencils and hold furniture painting, screen printing, lampshade making and other workshops in their creative space downstairs.
The above picture is a framed original watercolour from their in-house artist, Liz. You will find a number of her original artwork around the shop. What I really like about Blake & Taylor is their creativeness. They are more than just a good homewares store; they offer both new and recycled pieces, have created unique products such as their paint range and artwork, have a full interior design service, and offer workshops for their customers.
Blake & Taylor is located at 11 Latrobe Terrace, Paddington Queensland 4064
