Chloe Mytton

Dusk Fairy  + Sundae Ray Collection

Hi I'm Chloe and I'm a watercolour artist & Mum to two vibrant nature loving girls Quinn & Oakley Based in Nelson. You’ll find us spending lots of time outdoors together exploring and learning about the magic of nature and encouraging the girls curiosity and confidence in those spaces.

It’s always been a dream of mine to have painting as a big part my life & now that the girls are a little older this dreams becoming more and more real. I love painting in neutral earthy soft tones and in a style that is detailed and interesting to look at. Whimsical dreamy children’s decor is a passion of mine so you’ll find yourself staring time and time again studying the brush strokes and tiny details in her pieces. 


Kylie Thompson

All Plaques + Headband Holder + Name Globes

Love From Seventeen was built on the idea that creating memories with family and friends is at the heart of humanity. We are sentimental, wired to celebrate and mark the special milestones in our lives. We believe it’s the little design details that tie together your individual style and inject the overall magic to a room or event.

I’m Kylie, founder of Love from Seventeen. As I set about styling our home after the arrival of my two daughters, I found myself in a world of mass produced, throw-away ‘on trend’ interior décor. It felt wasteful, lacked originality and purpose. I wanted things that were meaningful and keepsake, and that’s how my business idea began. On 17 April 2015 we launched with a clear goal; to bring customised and creative interior décor to every little corner of your home.

Cutting and engraving exquisite pieces from wood and acrylic is what we do, with a promise of high quality products, a commitment to sourcing eco-friendly materials and packaging, fresh and fun new ideas, matched with reliable delivery to your door.

Thank you for buying local and supporting Kiwi small business, and we are beyond grateful for your support x


Rose Wilks 



I am natural light photographer and keep my style classic so they always stay on point. I am a sucker for white anything with a touch of soft colour. I have always incorporated flowers into my shoots in the studio so working alongside F&W has been a dream come true.

Working with newborns is kind of my thing, I’m a baby whisperer in the studio ( not so much with my little girl now she's nearly one #PhotograpersChildProblemsand) and can capture all those gorgeous itty-bitty toes and yawns for you to treasure forever! If you come see me you'll no doubt meet my middle child Luca in the studio as he thinks he’s the 2ic!

Lauren Plato

The Macrame Babe



Hi ya'll, Im Lauren! Pal to Michelle and a top fan of Forrest and Wood. I work part time as a Hairstylist and when I'm not in the salon I'm chasing after my 16 month old son Jagger. I have a flair for creativity which has embarked me on an amazing journey to be able to share a wee bit of my favourite evening activity with you all - enhanced of course with incredible Forest and Wood florals! Macrame has kept my hands busy and mind at ease for coming a year now and with baby number two due in the festive season, I'll have some extra time to craft some beautiful pieces to adorn your walls!

With a house full of plants and a garden riddled with bulbs, I am constantly surrounded by life and colour. Flowers have always bought so much joy to my world and to be able to showcase my work alongside Michelle’s is such an honor. We have loads installed so stay tuned! xx


Dominique Cook



Hey! I’m Dom from Dominique Cook Photography. I am a twenty something photographer located in Southland, New Zealand. Married to a wonderful southland fella, mum to an 18 month old adventurous wee boy, Mason and currently expecting our second baby gal in October 2020. I have been clicking snaps since 2015 and am obsessed with capturing weddings, portraits and fashion.

My style has gradually changed over the years and formed itself into a boho/chic relaxed vibe which is why It’s been an absolute pleasure to work with F&W (AKA the QUEEN of style) and create some stunning floral content to make you drool over! Babe, you are going to want to buy it all! 


Madison Woods



Hiiiii all, I’m Madison. I’m a mom to two beautiful little souls and a lifestyle photographer on the side. Self taught and continuing to learn more everyday !

You can find me @intothewoodsphotography on Instagram and Facebook. I have a love for capturing the candid moments in life AND I’m all about that styled photoshoot vibe too. Anything boho, moody, vintage, SUNSET- I’m your girl. Working with Michelle has been a blessing, getting to photograph the most beautiful dried flowers and work with the biggest boss babe has been amazing to say the least. I feel beyond privileged to be featured here.🌻
