Hello, I'm Sophie and I left my nursing career to run my small print business specialising in home decor, full time. What could possibly go wrong?!
I’m a wife to my long suffering husband Adam and mum to two gorgeous children, Harriet (6) and Charlie (5). I also have two very naughty 2 year old sausage dogs, Oscar and Izzy who like to bark at everything, literally EVERYTHING. We live in a beautiful Victorian end terrace, in a tiny village on the border of West and North Yorkshire. The location is terrible, it floods and there isn’t even a shop but it’s in the middle of nowhere and I’m all for that. We bought this house (our very first bought home) in January 2019 and we have slowly been decorating and making it homely ever since. I don’t think we will ever be done though, at least I can furnish it with beautiful prints, there's a silver lining!
At the end of 2020 my youngest, Charlie started year 1 at school. It quickly became apparent that there were some issues with his hearing. It turned out that Charlie has over sensitive hearing. After learning this, I wanted to do everything I could to create a calm and quiet environment for Charlie to relax in at home. A new business idea was born out of that and I've been creating simple, calming and relaxing prints for you to decorate your home with ever since. You can read the full blog post here explaining more about this journey.
So you know a little about me now but you want to know how and why I started The English Print Company? It's a good story, grab a coffee and you can read it here. You can also follow along on Instagram and Facebook.
