Curated Grey is an online lifestyle store based in Brighton, UK, which is run and owned by me, Melanie Carter. That's me above during a family photo shoot with my little girl.
My background is in textile design, sourcing, product development and fashion retail buying across clothing, jewellery and accessories. Now with two little ones of my own my passion for discovering new trends and style inspiration has also moved into baby & children's trends.
Finding myself with a rare bit of free time during the COVID-19 lockdown, I decided to do what I had dreamt of doing for years and went about setting up my own online mini department store. So, Curated Grey was born and I set about sourcing all the products I love.
At Curated Grey we source and curate truly unique and sought-after home decor, modern jewellery, hand crafted accessories and a small range of baby & children's clothing & accessories.
We specialise in solid sterling silver real 18k gold plated jewellery, handwoven accessories & handmade homeware. It is ever evolving and the collections are frequently refreshed but our product categories and main focus are currently as follows...
House & Home
Curated Grey homeware is a unique and modern mix of clean minimalist Scandinavian design and handmade artisan bohemian pieces. The clean defined lines of Scandinavian design are warmed up with neutral colour tones and rustic textures. We also stock a small range of children and baby homeware pieces.
Curated Grey source modern sterling silver jewellery using real 18k yellow and rose gold plating. Most of the pieces have a slightly minimal aesthetic with a sleek and polished finish. An organic textured polished collection uses naturally irregular freshwater baroque pearls. Cubic zirconia stones are used on select pieces for a touch of sparkle akin to diamonds.
Curated Grey source beautiful handmade bags, baskets, belts and hairbands using natural materials like straw, bamboo and raffia. Or materials that give the look of natural materials. We use a largely neutral colour palette with a touch of black and monochrome.
Baby & Children
Curated Grey stock a selection of baby & children's clothing with both Scandinavian and Korean influences. We also stock various accessories including footwear, hats and bag's. For baby we have a beautiful selection of textiles including giant printed muslin cloths, soft intarsia knit blankets and soft swaddle cloths.
