Hello and welcome to Kohler Homeware & Slow Living
Here you will find a little back story into why we started Kohler, why we like to take things a little more slowly and an insight into the little details in the home that make it a personal space to unwind after a day at work.
I decided to take the leap over a year ago to quit my full time job and follow my passion for floristry and curating a home with found treasures and vintage items that represent us. I wanted to take a step back from the mundane everyday work that I had fallen into and shake things up a bit. Shake it up it did! As soon after I started up Kohler Homeware, Covid hit and we went into uncharted territory. We were forced to stop what we were doing and really consider what we wanted in life. My partner was unhappy in his work so we decided to take a chance and follow our dreams. We started Kohler Eden, our gardening business, and things have skyrocketed since then.
We wanted to create a life for ourselves where we can enjoy the little things in life every single day. We both wanted to get outside more - that's a certainty now we are running Eden - and there is a sense of contentment when we have dirt under our fingernails at the end of the day *Note to self. Buy a new nail brush. We've applied to the council for an allotment so we can grow our own fruit and veg, we are yet to get approval but hopefully we will soon...
We are still in the process of restoring our Victorian terrace to it's former glory. This is something we are taking time over, filling it with items that have a history and meaning to us is something that is really important to me. I want to create a home that truly reflects us as a couple. Don't get me wrong I love IKEA as much as the next person, but I like the way you can create something really personal by throwing handmade and vintage items into the mix.
So there you have it. An introduction to Kohler. We will be sharing various posts on the blog from recipes, gardening tips and how to style you own home. I hope you enjoy reading what we have to share with you.
Thank you for visiting our little part of the internet!
