I had the joy of discovering the utterly charming Galerie Lisette in the equally picturesque village of Enniskerry Co. Wicklow at the weekend. Run by mother and daughter duo, Architect Aida and her mother Lucina an accomplished textile artist, between them they stock a gorgeous collection of linen & lace hand-printed cushions, original screen-prints, etchings & greeting cards and some of their signature pieces of sourced furniture they have revamped. What's more they also run one day creative up-cycling workshops where they teach renovating and finishing techniques tapping into current flea market baroque trends. It really is the perfect antidote to recession gloom especially on a sunny day.
