A unique and original new paint and home wares brand launches in the UK and also joins Sally Lee by the Sea, LLC as a coastal sponsor.
An exciting, fresh new paint and home wares brand looks set to peak the interest of the UK interiors market. Founded by local design entrepreneurs Rebecca Heane and Allison Hughes, Cream Cornwall offers high quality, handmade and locally produced items that evoke the beauty of this diverse and captivating county.
Rebecca Heane, co-founder, explains, “Cornwall’s natural beauty has always made it an inspirational place and it has a special draw, a sense of belonging, that makes people want to come back again and again. Cream Cornwall was borne from a desire to share what we have on our doorstep; the colours of Cornwall, its ever changing skies, wild and rugged coastline, sandy coves and sheltered creeks.”
“With Cream Cornwall, nothing has come off a production line: it is the complete opposite of ‘off-the-peg’! You can guarantee that every piece is exceptional, every piece beautiful. Each individual collection features pieces designed by us and directly sourced from Designer Makers in Cornwall.”
Three different collections suggest a color scheme and style reflecting three distinct facets of Cornwall life: Classic, Contemporary and Cottage, whilst allowing crossover and harmony between the colors and products. Rebecca and Allison are passionate about the county and believe in local craftsmanship; creative, unique style, and a commitment to quality.
From curtains and cushions to mugs and jugs, the range can offer something for every room to lift existing decor, or create a new look. Candles and room diffusers complete the ambiance with a scent for each of the collections. The high pigment, quality paint – in eco-friendly buckets rather than tins – is unique and mixed to order. The palette is inspired by the colors of Cornwall and the evocative names reflect the distinctive identity of the Duchy. Imagine a room painted in Sea Thrift or the kitchen cupboards in Frenchman’s Creek.
Entire rooms or homes could be decorated and accessorized by Cream Cornwall products, or simply an exquisite silk and velvet dip dyed cushion could bring a little bit of Cornwall into your home. A feature wall, or the front door, painted in one of the colors from the unique paint palette can evoke fond memories, or offer a sense of calm and escape from the hustle and bustle of everyday life on your return home after a long day.
The Classic range is full of past influences with a modern twist. Traditional techniques have been used to create refined pieces which reflect the maritime history and beautiful gardens of Cornwall. Aprons and tea towels, linen cushions and printed lamps can bring a sense of Cornwall’s history to a room.
The Contemporary range has been influenced by the artists of post modernist St Ives: clean lines and pure colors synonymous with the unique light found here and captured in elegant jugs and local porcelain.
If you want to create some atmosphere in your home then the Cottage collection is for you: textured, handcrafted and
infused with rich colors, it suggests Cornwall’s heritage and traditions through big soup cups, ship’s lighting and
Barbara Hepworth inspired daubs of color.
Allison Hughes, co-founder, says “We have created our own designs and worked closely with local potters, woodworkers
and artists so you can create a little corner of Cornwall in your home!”
