Hi, I'm Ellie Ramsay
I opened Blake & Taylor in 2010 in Paddington Brisbane Australia to continue to share my love of décor and also to bring new life to pre-loved objects in an industry in which I have been involved for over 30 years. I love the colours of the past and the impact that colours can have on our lives and the way we live and feel about them.
This love of colour inspired me to create my own Australian Made Chalk Furniture Paint range to incorporate into my Interior Design work in 2015 as, at the time, there was no chalk paint that was made in Australia either was the colour palette that I was after.
I think we all have a creative strength inside us and it is great to help others find theirs and bring it out. I would love to show you how creative you can be as it is so easy with my paint to transform any room. You will be surprised just how clever you are.
What makes me happy? I am happy when I can design and create with my paints and beautiful fabrics to transform dead spaces and make them come alive. I also love to share my knowledge and skills especially in making vintage pieces of furniture new again using my paint.
As I believe that we should all reuse, recycle and repurpose whenever possible I love to use existing or found pieces of furniture and objects to avoid waste.
I do hope you enjoy playing and transforming pieces that you love with my paint as I do.
