We are Michelle and Jacqui
We met in Bath where we both live, and discovered that we had a shared interest in contemporary art, and a shared passion for unique, characterful and well crafted pieces for the home - from furniture to styling accessories.
We are also both inspired and uplifted by British creativity and design, and were thrilled to uncover a rich vein of creative talent in and around Bath, but were surprised to find that no space really showcased these works in the context of their end destination: the home!
And so the idea was seeded. A year later, following much research and deliberation, VERVE was born.
An interiors space designed to inspire,
and committed to supporting local and British creative talent
Michelle is an interiors stylist, and the hands on, creative side of the duo.
At the Verve Living shop, she is constantly on the move, critically assessing and developing vibrant new looks; upstyling and curating an ever changing collection of furniture, artefacts and home styling accessories.
. As a stylist, she instinctively wants to help and so is always happy to share ideas and resources, or to be a sounding board. She also offers home styling services, from in home consultations to working with you to help you achieve a look and feel that is uniquely yours
When it comes to homewares, Jacqui is a modern-day Sherlock Holmes. Always on the hunt for artisans and makers, she is especially passionate about championing British creativity and craftsmanship, and has an unshakable belief in the power of aesthetically pleasing accessories to transform a home. From stunning silk cushions to Scandi style coat hooks, the homewares Jacqui finds for the Verve shop on Bath's London road, have real integrity and lasting appeal.
