Hi, I'm Sarah the founder of Peachy Parrot. I am from Dublin in Ireland and now live in the UK with my husband and three young boys.
I grew up in a brightly coloured home, decorated by my Mum who loved colour and interior design. My Dad used to play ‘’The Glad Game’’ with me, where we always looked for the positive in any situation and it had a huge impact on my mindset.
I noticed growing up how our surroundings can impact our mood in a positive and inspiring way, and I would love others to feel that too. My aim is to design feel good home furnishings that will lift your mood and maximize happiness in your home while also adding a touch of playfulness. As the artist Pablo Picasso once said "Colours, like features, follow the changes of the emotions."
Having trained as an actor in Ireland, I decided to move to London to pursue a creative career. I gained valuable skills and experience from running my own small business, a stall in Camden market selling jewellery which I both designed and created.
Now a little older and hopefully a little wiser, I'm delighted to have launched Peachy Parrot. Taking the leap to start felt like a huge aha moment and it quickly became all-consuming in the most wonderful way. I absolutely love the creative process of designing each item and playing with colour.
I am proud that every piece from Peachy Parrot is handmade using all natural materials. Our talented artisans produce them in small batches ensuring they are of the highest quality and creating less waste for the environment.
It is vitally important for me to ensure the process of producing our products is ethical and transparent. In particular that our team in India are paid fair wages, with both men and women earning the same.
I believe the resulting products are unique and playful and I hope they bring joy to your home.
