International Women’s Day

International Women’s Day marks a call to action to celebrate the achievements of women around the world, raise awareness and lobby for change. This year’s #BreakTheBias theme resonates with us here at Mr and Mrs Clarke, especially as we find ourselves in a male-heavy industry. We are incredibly proud to be a team led by a founder who is a mother, wife, friend, colleague, daughter, sister….a woman, and we also have a rockstar team of strong women within our Partner team, all of whom are truly the beating heart of Mr and Mrs Clarke. So in the spirit of celebrating incredible women, we wanted to share a few of our favourite female entrepreneurs that are killing it in the industry whom we champion today and every day…

Who: @pinkhouseliving
What:  Social media rockstar, author, interior lover and pink enthusiast

Founder of The Pink House, Emily is also a mother to two boys and worked as a lifestyle journalist before relocating to London and turning her Edwardian home into pink paradise. She began her blog in 2016, offering others advice on how to transform their spaces by drawing inspiration from chic and playful hotels, bars and restaurants. She also released her first book Pink House Living in 2019 which, much like her Instagram feed, is filled with an array of colourful inspiration. Trust us, her social media will have you scrolling for hours….

Who: @loudarchitects
What:  Architectural designer, award winner, content creator

Established in 2017 by Kate Clare, LOUD is a creative architecture and interior design studio based in London. A far cry from the cookie-cutter designs we often see online or on our Pinterest boards, LOUD specialises in forward-thinking, bold styles that range from large country houses to compact London corners. With a strong female lead and a team of women at its core, LOUD is the perfect brand to shout about this International Women’s Day. We can’t wait to follow their journey and see where it takes them…

Who: @wyldhome
What:  Business owner, home decor curator, faux flower and plant addict

Some of you may recognise Wyld Home from our Journal back in October. We met Krystyna who launched this stunning home and lifestyle shop in 2015, driven by her love of natural-looking faux flowers and plants and all things pretty. Wyld Home is a wonderfully unique, female-led business that is definitely worth visiting (and Instagramming) when in Shrewsbury.

Who: @hello_haus
What:  Interior designer, neutral lover and content creator

One of our favourite up and coming Interior Designers is Katie a.k.a. @hello_haus. Her stripped-back and timeless designs can bring a sense of effortless style to any home. She focuses on creating calming environments, something we all need now more than ever, and now offers workshops to help others “find their style”, which can be booked via her social media.

interior designer, artwork co-founder Alex Clarke, Mr and Mrs Clarke

Who: Alex, co-founder of Mr & Mrs Clarke and our wonderful female team!

Okay so we might be a little bit biased on this one, but we have an amazing team of incredible women right here at Mr & Mrs Clarke. From our co-founder Alex to our strong female partners and our wonderful photographer (all of whom are also wives, mothers, friends and daughters), we want to shout about how brilliant they are. They are the absolute foundation of Mr & Mrs Clarke and continue to inspire, challenge and create to help #BreakTheBias toady and everyday.
