Oh my was what I sighed when I saw Incy Interiors over a year ago.. It was Kristy's Oscar Bed that had me at hello, however now she has Mae and I am totally smitten (yes it is a bed but yes I am in love)..
Anywho enough about me and more about Kristy..
Why did you choose your business name? My brother came up with my business name. I recruited my entire family to help out giving them a brief that the name must be reflective of the business I wanted to create which was beautiful, affordable and good quality children’s furniture. Incy was chosen because kids are obviously small or incy and whenever anyone says the word incy they smile and we want to make people smile. Interiors was chosen because I wanted to create beautiful children’s spaces it is more than just furniture, a child’s room is their own little piece of the house.
What have you most enjoyed in your career so far? I have had a very varied career spending the first 10 years of it doing marketing for St.George Bank & eBay and then the last 18 months launching and running Incy. I have been so lucky in my career to have worked with some hugely inspiring, talented and fun people who are passionate about what they are doing whether that be bank accounts, web pages or children’s products. Turning ideas and passion into reality is what I enjoy most of all.
Have you had any major highlights, personal or business in the last few years? The last 12 months have seen some major highlights for me both personally and business wise – Incy has recently celebrated it’s 1st birthday and it has grown well beyond my wildest expectations. On a personal note, we were also lucky enough to welcome our long awaited and very much loved daughter Polly late last year. I consider myself pretty organised and capable but a new business and a new baby in 12 months definitely tested what I was made of!
What inspires or motivates you? I am incredibly lucky to have the best and most supportive family and friends in the world and they inspire and motivate me everyday. When you are surrounded with happy, loving and passionate people you are constantly inspired and driven to do better and be better at everything you do.
..and lastly tell me one things about yourself that you love but has nothing to do with business. I love nothing more than spending time with my family and friends, if I can combine that with shopping and a glass of wine I one happy girl!
