The Days of Our Lives: Jo Harris and Lucy Glade-Wright, Hunting for George

HFG_portrait_Lucy+JoHFG_bedding_lifestyle19HFG_bedding_lifestyle16

The Days of Our Lives we meet some fascinating and creative folk and take a look at what their typical day holds. Far from being about the mundane, it is a celebration of what it takes to juggle the day-to-day with big ideas, a successful business and a full home life. It’s about keeping all the balls in the air – what is important and what isn’t. It’s about (extra)ordinary moments that fill our every day.  

This week, we meet two sisters, Jo Harris and Lucy Glade-Wright, who love to laugh and love to put their heart and soul into their online boutique, Hunting for George. From fashion and jewellery, to artwork, accessories and homewares, these gals have the knack for hunting down beautiful and unique pieces. They’ve also recently launched their own  bedding range which will have you sleeping pretty with its beautiful designs and chemical free, 100% pure cotton fabrics.

This is a day in the life of Jo and Lucy.
