Hello and welcome to our Oak Tree Lane blog. I’m Cris founder and Creative Director of Oak Tree Lane and I’m hoping this space will provide you with lots of inspiration and creative ideas for you and your home. For me decorating my home is not just arranging furniture and decorative items. It’s about purposefully and meaningfully bringing things into my home that inspire joy and create a sense of warmth, calm and peace. For me home is a soft place to land and a place where I want my family to feel comfortable and nurtured. Decorating my home is an art form for me. I am constantly rearranging and moving things around, to create a space that always feels uplifting and inspiring. It is also part of my self care practice…. to create an environment that is beautiful and makes me happy.
Essentially it is from this concept, that Oak Tree Lane found its roots. I wanted to create a store that was filled with beautiful, ethically made quality products that help make a house feel like a home.
However, Oak Tree Lane for me has always been about the journey and it is no coincidence that it is reflected in the name. I had an idea in my mind, but I always knew that this was going to be a creative business and that meant that I needed to stay open to following the path wherever it may lead by pursuing what I love to do and following joy. Following joy has taken us on an interesting journey from starting out as an antiques business, to moving our whole family to Europe. The path has not always been clear, nor what we expected, but I have learned to trust the journey and the path as it unfolds. Right now, our path has led us to our studio in Sydney where we produce our products. Our studio is our creative sanctuary. I love this space so much. We are very fortunate to be surrounded by national park and my walks in nature here are a constant source of inspiration for my work and my creative practice. We would love you to follow our journey......subscribe to our newsletter on the home page to receive inspiration for you and your home and to be the first to receive member only discounts.
