Hello! I'm Jayne, proud owner of Roost Home Living. My interest in design and interiors began over 20 years ago when we bought our first house, within 2 years we completed a self build (a small 2 bedroom bungalow but hey everyone has to start somewhere, right?!) and since then a string of doer uppers has followed which has resulted in many, many hours with my head in interiors magazines, planning and shopping!
I’ve always held a desire to own my own little shop and the sudden loss of my Dad in 2014 prompted me to really focus on what mattered. A couple of years and much procrastination followed but in 2017 I took a leap of faith to pursue my passion for design and interiors. I had no experience whatsoever in retail but I just felt that life is too short and that I should try to do something I loved and so Roost was born!
My shop, Roost Home Living is based in the small coastal town of West Kirby on the Wirral Peninsula. Its not the pretty, traditional shop front I dreamt of, in fact, its basically a draughty garage that’s been converted into a unit however that said, we are situated in a little walkway off the main street, just 5 mins from the beach and nestled between 2 independent cafes and an independent toyshop so its a pretty perfect and very friendly spot!!
Roost aims to provide a characterful range of design led, quality, homewares and gifts and when shopping for stock I always pick the stuff that I would love to have in my own home and gifts that I would love to receive. I often struggle to define my style as it can be quite random but if you think laid back Scandi, mixed with contemporary design and a dash of fun you're almost there!
