The Decorium

Offering an expertly curated selection of fashion and lifestyle pieces, The Decorium is your one stop shop for all things beautiful, desirable and unique. Our wonderful agent Tish met with founder Lucy to find out more…

The Decorium, Tish

We love: The relaxing atmosphere, friendly staff and the simply stunning clothes!
Where: Nestled into the high street of Tettenhall village.
Who: Lucy, founder of The Decorium.

Tell us a little bit about yourself…
Hi there! I’m Lucy and am the founder of The Decorium. I launched online in 2020 and have been searching for the perfect spot to set up shop ever since. Having spent the last 10 years working in the fashion industry in London, Tettenhall feels like a little oasis of calm (and chic ladies!) and is the ideal place for the first store. Once I saw the little space at 28 High Street had become available I jumped at the opportunity! Nestled into the heart of the village it felt meant to be.

How do you decide what to stock?
Honestly, I am a true shopaholic so it comes very naturally to me. I would never stock anything that I wouldn’t wear myself so in that sense I find it pretty easy. I like to travel a lot to find something a bit different that you wouldn’t usually find elsewhere – that’s integral to the The Decorium brand DNA and has really helped define my USP.

Top three items in your store right now?
Ooh that’s so tough! I have to say I’m loving the kaftan’s I have in at the moment. They’re such an easy wear and a definite wardrobe hero when it comes to holiday packing as they work hard. You can throw on over a bikini for the day and style up with jewellery and a pair of wedges by night. Also, being such a magpie I spend a lot of time searching for really special jewellery that makes a statement. These studs are all you need to make any outfit look expensive – just sweep your hair up and pop on a pair of sunglasses and you’re good to go!

Favourite spot for a dinner date in the local area…
I spent way too much time in Cataldos – especially when the sun is out as they have such a lovely outside seating area. You will often find me there with an Aperol Spritz! Seats by Robinsons is also a favourite as it’s so close to the shop and the staff are super friendly.

Where do you get your coffee fix?
Georgie’s Coffee House is my go-to most of the time as they do a fantastic soya flat white and are always experimenting with new sweet treats! I have recently discovered they do ‘Georgie’s Canal Cruises’ which I can’t wait to book for aspecial occasion. They’re also pram friendly which is very necessary with a 7 month old often in tow!

Where do you get styling inspo from?
People often say print is dead but I still read a lot of magazines which is where I get most of my inspiration. I’m also an avid people watcher and love to take inspiration from everyday people who are just being themselves and aren’t trying too hard. A simple neckerchief or jumper thrown over the shoulders can go a long way in the style stakes.

Finally, if you could dress a discerningly different estate agent, which items would you pick?
Well we have all seen you looking rather fabulous in our Nat striped jumper! I think it’s important to look professional but not stuffy which can sometimes be hard to achieve. The Parisa striped trousershave just dropped and can be dressed up or down, so a great day to night piece. For a discerningly different estate agent I’d pair them with our Sydney blazer with a basic white tee underneath. These palm tree huggies will add a flash of fun. Slide on some tan sandals and a slick of coral lipstick and you’re offically The Decorium approved!

We love it! Thank you Lucy for the story behind your gorgeous shop, we can’t wait to visit again soon…
