New Business Spotlight: Shop Stylish & Unique Interiors With Turnbull & Hooch

My brilliant friend Sarah has pivoted from wedding presents to interiors to set up Turnbull & Hooch. Her website is a curated collection of ‘colourful and stylish gifts’ — I’m hoping this means ‘gifts to yourself’ because I’ve been eyeing up lots of the home accessories for around my house!! A lot of the bits would make perfect wedding gifts, so T&H is a good one to keep in mind for occasions, especially if the person you’re buying for is obsessed with quirky and unique interiors!

What do you do?

I run an interiors and gifts website called Turnbull & Hooch. My aim is to source really fun, unique products and hopefully bring a little joy to people and their homes. I have just launched the website that I run from home in a little studio. I’m also planning to do lots of fairs, pop-ups and eventually to have a studio in my barn so people can drop in and see the products.

How did it all begin?

I ran a wedding gift list business for many years in London and always had people asking if they could buy pieces from me without a list. When I moved out to Hampshire, I realised I was no longer surrounded by young couples and that there was much more of a market for interiors and lovely gifts. I absolutely love sourcing and finding fun and quirky interiors.

Sarah’s favourites

Restaurant: Off the top of my head, I can’t actually think of one but some fantastic meals seem to come more to mind.  My favourite kind of meal is a steak on the BBQ (probably on a beach!). Speaking of beaches… one of the best spots I’ve ever eaten was on a stunning beach on Uist in the Outer Hebrides. My husband and I had a disposable bbq and flame-grilled local-caught crab claws and a steak!!! Heaven!

Hotel: La Fenice B&B in Positano is one of the best places I’ve ever stayed. It’s nothing swanky but very laid back and relaxed. It’s family-run with just six beds. Everyone comes round the pool at lunchtime and they offer two choices for lunch: melon & parma ham salad or tuna & mozzarella. It’s all grown at their home which is just above the b&b. It’s also got its own private beach with kayaks for guests. Positano is such a fun place and somewhere I’d love to go back to one day… definitely without the kids though!!

Clothing brand: I do like Wyse London and Gussy and Lou for fun, colourful cashmere jumpers — always a real treat!

Instagram account: London Mummy  – it’s so cheesy but The London Mummy was the first Insta account I started following for my own interest rather than a business. You are so refreshingly honest and real.
