It was the black cat that caught my attention, and then my uncontrollable curiosity that led me to meet Sherrellea, a truly passionate lady, who owns this truly wonderful shop. Sherrellea is totally unique, every single piece on display is original, hand made, not second-hand, but bespoke aka Upcycle, each item, carefully created or expertly selected by owner and stylist ‘Sherrellea’, with many unique designs from all over the world, and btw, this lady is truly an extraordinary designer, and a visit to her shop is highly recommended, and with prices ranging from €3 to €3,000 you’re bound to find something you like and within your budget.
In the Blood
Over a coffee, Sherrellea told me she’s always liked unusual things, probably something to do with her father who was very artistic, always creating, painting and decorating something, an electrical engineer by trade, in his spare time he used to relax by making things, oh, and her grandfather was a master draper, so it’s sort of in the blood, in the past she led a home styling team and worked for Laura Ashley in the UK, to mention but a few.
Sherrellea continued; “I always wanted to retire in Cyprus as we’ve been coming here for 40 years for holidays. I bought my flat in 2014, and I had problems furnishing it the way I wanted it, so once I found these premises, I bought furnishings from all over the world and got in touch with an old friend that supplies original hand made gifts in the UK and some excellent local artists and I thought I’d give it a go” … I believe Sherrellea has definitely added a new dimension to interior furnishings in Cyprus, ideas with style, for stylish people … btw, I love the cat above her logo, it says it all !!!
The shop is bigger than it seems, spacious, and much deeper than you imagine, and it’s literally full of unique ideas for your home and garden … everything from a coffee table to designer sofas, beds, and unique mirrors … one-off chairs, specially created for beauty salons that want to make a statement or stylish cafe’s that want to be as original as their food … oh and expect to find some wonderful cushions coz Sherrellea has 116 at home 😉
Sherrellea will work to your budget, big or small, talking to you about your ideas, creating Scheme Boards for you to see, then finding the things you want, Upcycling the selected items, by repainting them and restyling them to your personality and of course to suit your home … I love the deep comfy sofa’s, beds, dressers, bedside cabinets, dining tables, clocks to suit any kitchen, sections for associated local artists namely, Jan Bateman and Carolina Alotus, lots of little ornaments, and knick-knacks, wall hangings and if you like unusuality, you’ll be in heaven at Sherrellea’s …
Sherrellea loves to work with young stylish couples moving into their first home … she has this amazing ability to partner your personality to the pieces of furniture you want and with an uncanny success … oh, and just wait ’til you see her work with mirrors of all different sizes.
Emma of Mojito Bar & Grill fame is a regular client, and of course, a friend, as Sherrellea likes to build friendships with all her clients, and even likes to know where every piece is going and on that note, they can arrange delivery nationwide.
Sherrellea regularly arranges seasonal events like her January Sales, Easter, Spring, and Summer parties, Halloween and for Christmas, it’s mince pies and mulled wine and lots of original Christmas decorations, that’ll make your friends jealous …
