Shopkeeper Interview - Rebecca of Father Rabbit

I am thrilled to introduce you this morning to Rebecca of Father Rabbit. Thanks so much for sharing your life with us Rebecca.

Name: Rebecca Paul

What do you do for a living?

I am the retail manager for Father Rabbit. 


How does a normal day fold out for you?

I like to get into work early and get prepared for the day ahead before launching into the many tasks that day may bring - working with our lovely customers, creating new displays and learning the ropes. I've just started with the company and each day brings something new which is exciting.

Who inspires you?

I have so many friends who are having amazing success in their chosen field and creating things that you want to be apart of. It's really inspiring to see them reaching their goals from our little corner of the world.

What websites/blogs could we find you reading?

Father Rabbit of course. Bluebird - love the weekly bread recipes and the Sunday cake. Perfect for afternoon baking! Cuyana - has an amazing range of things for you and your home plus great inspiration for a way of living

What is your interior style?

I think it should always start with a neutral backdrop and build from there with things that are either practical or that you find beautiful. I mix the old with the new and believe that an amazing kitchen is a non-negotialbe. I spend a lot of time in there! After travelling for several years we are starting to buy things that will be with us for many years so quality is essential.

What is your fashion style?

Very similar to how I like my home! I wear a lot of neutrals (mainly black) with a bit of Navy, Brass and Olive Green. I love classic pieces that you can mix and match and wear all the time. My new years resolution was to refine this style and let go of pieces that I just don't wear. I'm in the middle and it's tough but worth it!

From your store, what is on your wishlist to buy right now.


We have just released our Father Rabbit Bed Frame for sale which was shot earlier this week. I love every item from the shoot - In Bed Linen, Caroline Hurley throw and Telegram Lamp. Also the Duralex Gigogne Glass - perfect for everyday and Friday wines!


From anywhere, what is on your wish list to buy right now?


Wow - besides everything for my home I would love some new pieces from Swedish brand COS. I love their clean, simple aesthetic with quality pieces at affordable prices.

I also have my eye on the new Joshu+Vela Brass Canvas Tote in store.


What is your favorite holiday destination and why?


Berlin - my husband and I went there in the winter a few years ago. It is an amazing city filled with history, great bars and restaurants and I just fell in love with it. Not your usual destination but a place that has really stuck with me! Its location in Europe makes it perfect for a bit of country hopping too.

What is your favorite meal to cook or have cooked for you?

At the moment I am obsessed with home baked bread topped with avocado, tomato and basil pesto. Simple, fresh and delicious!
  
Any 5 year plans you would like to share with us?
There are some exciting things happening at Father Rabbit and I can't wait to see what the next few years bring if this year is anything to go by.

At home we are starting to renovate our house and I would love to have it completed in 5 years!

Nice to have you hear to visit us Rebecca. Thanks so much.
