Maree, Vintage China Hire’s stylist and consultant, thinks she must have been a magpie or bowerbird in a previous life. Fluttering about, collecting pretty little things that catch her eye at auctions, markets and clearing sales, and storing them away in her nest.
Her love of vintage treasures is a custom of passion, built on natural attraction to items that capture her imagination. Starting with a hard-to-break habit for delightful duchess dressing tables, Maree soon realised that this habit was making her life rather cluttered: Too much furniture and too little space! Her natural styling ability was soon realised when she set up a temporary store in her mother’s old house to sell some of these treasures, arranging some lovely old china on the tables. One habit was broken, and another created.
Maree’s fascination with old, vintage items still engulfs her, and she now nurtures her great love for all those pretty little things, constantly re-arranging and creating beautiful settings with her treasured range of vintage possessions, over the years styling events for family and friends.
