Welcome to All About Eve at home which opened its doors in July 2009 in the lovely town of Old Amersham, Buckinghamshire. In 2013 All About Eve at home moved to its present location in Reigate High Street.
Owner Melanie, formerly a buyer working for Harrods and The White Company, wanted to use her 25 years of retail experience to create an ‘emporium of loveliness’, a shop filled with unusual, beautiful, and in some cases original products, all hand selected by Melanie herself. The shop is filled with the most beautiful collection of original painted French furniture and gorgeous gifts that Melanie has sourced from antiques fairs and UK suppliers.
‘At home I like to mix old and new together’ says Melanie, ‘and I like to do the same in the shop mixing vintage finds such as glass jugs, cake stands and jewellery, with the new gifts that we have’. Although the furniture changes frequently, the shop specialises in beautiful painted mirrors, dressing tables, consoles, kitchen tables and chairs. The gifts range from exquisite own label candles & diffusers, seasonal silk flowers, tealights and vintage finds, to a wide selection of jewellery, scarves and greetings cards. Melanie will happily gift wrap any purchase with tissue paper and the beautiful All About Eve ribbon, all presented in a luxury bag, so that the gift is ready to give to the lucky recipient!
New this Spring is the introduction of Autentico chalk based furniture paint which is fabulously easy to use as it sticks to almost any surface with virtually no preparation! Be warned though, furniture painting is highly addictive!
