Many of us will remember 2020 as one of the hardest years we have endured. Yet it is the endurance that we must hold on to. We must remember patience, gratitude and hope and we must cherish the strength and support that has guided us to the other side of this perilous year.
At Parrot & Lily, we have come to appreciate not just the aesthetic richness of beautiful interiors, but also the comfort and security of one’s own home. An obscure 17th century precept prevented anyone from entering a home without an invitation, giving rise to the phrase ‘an Englishman’s home is their castle.’ This year, our homes have been the ultimate fortress, keeping dangers at bay and loved ones close by.
More than ever, we discern the importance of having not just shelter but a retreat; a home that is custom-made to your manners. Where the breakfast table is positioned in the most refreshing spot and the coffee table is at perfect height for the evening respite, where the home office is replete with convenient storage and perhaps a well-placed foot rest, where the interiors encourage family to come together and guides their attention to memories on a mantle piece.
Don’t settle for a home that doesn’t share your fortitude. For 2021, make your home more you by bringing home some Parrot & Lily. Pick from our favourites or customise your own.
