Welcome 2014 - Happy New Year!

Welcome 2014! I always love January, the start of a new year. It’s always so full of possibilities and new beginnings.


I use this time, on the heels of holiday celebration to reflect. On all the people and experiences that have blessed my life, all the accomplishments I have made and all of the bittersweet failures that turn into lessons learned. From here I turn to visualizing the next phase of my life, the people, places, and experiences I want to be part of my journey; and then I spend the first week or so of January creating my vision board and identifying my big hairy audacious goal for 2014.


I feel blessed to welcome 2014 in good health, and am so glad that you are here.  I'd like to start off by thanking you for your continued support and by apologizing for not being as present as I had intended at the end of 2013.


2013 was a breakthrough year for us as we evolved Feather Thy Nest into Andrea Hylton Home and launched our 1.0 online presence offering curated throw pillow and blankets collections, primarily designed and manufactured by us right here at home! We launched at The Toronto Fall Home show to rave reviews, we picked up retail clients but didn’t get to connect with as many of our loyal customers as we had hoped and envisioned.


We intended to launch our holiday collection with our big end of year sale but life happened. Unforeseen health issues and a death in the family derailed the best laid plans, and so we cocooned to provide support and make it through November to the end of year.  We let you down, and for that I am truly sorry.


As we embark on 2014 refreshed, with lots of excitement for our upcoming plans and collection launches we want you to know that we do so with a focus on serving you, our customers.  With the clients that we did connect with before year end, we heard:

  • you love the ability to see the new collection online in the comfort of your home but miss the ability to pop by the store and connect with us in person,
  • you love the curated collections but miss the personalized recommendations,
  • you adore the depth of textures and styles but miss the other finishing touches that helped bring your rooms to life.


We have lots of exciting ventures for 2014 that will help us stay closer, more connected to you and help you finish your spaces with ease! The first of which is our Semi-Annual Clearance sale. Look for our special invite that allows you to shop early and get the best deals as we make way for 2014!


All the best,
