Get To Know The Founders

This is really us!

We commute, we work hard, we carry bags that are too heavy, we wear heels that are too high, we manage swollen email accounts, we drink too much coffee, we worry (as mothers, as wives, as businesswomen) …

But we find joy in beauty, we revel in collaboration, we love color, we pause to put a pin in the good moments and we find inspiration in our families, our homes, our colleagues and each other.

Fete Home was born from a ten year working relationship that realized a common thread … life is fast but celebrating your home should be easy, affordable and inspirational. From patterns that simply make you happy to beautifully designed objects that serve a real need and purpose. Our goal is to encourage celebration in your sanctuary, your HOME.
