Byron Bay Beauty with Chloe Brookman
Having ourselves experienced the trials and tribulations of navigating the largely male-dominated business landscape, we have immense admiration and respect for the strong women around us who have withstood all that comes with founding and running a business of any kind. We feel so fortunate to be in such incredible company as female business owners, and to be part of an empowering community of women and mothers who are growing and creating with an undying spirit of mutually supporting and uplifting each other.
Chloe Brookman, who co-founded the enchanting mama-focused home décor line Olli Ella alongside her sister (!), is one member of this community whose thoughtful design sensibilities and bright spirit of playfulness have captured our hearts. Olli Ella’s ethically made and sustainably sourced pieces (particularly the shopper baskets) have quickly become staples in our lives, both bringing joy to our homes and accompanying us on adventures far and wide (they have offices in 3 cities - LA, London & Byron Bay!). Made with love and care, these are pieces designed to fit into and brighten every moment of life.
Chloe seems to possess the same power of effortless adaptability as her designs, gracefully balancing her life as a mother and a business owner while taking full advantage of the stunning beauty of Byron Bay, where she lives with her three adorable children and husband. We hope that our travels in the coming year will bring us to her corner of Australia and that we will have the chance to encounter her shining light in person. See below for pictures of Chloe and her sweet daughter, Nell, at home and wandering through the dreamscape that is New South Wales (where we're hoping to shoot our next spring lookbook)!
