Fete Home is…A celebration of your home and the end to your search for cool home accessories that won't break the bank!
What was the inspiration?We love design! We've been professionally immersed in the industry for over a decade but recognize that interior design can be expensive, intimidating and hard to find. We've watched the world of fashion expand and evolve, offering every style at every price point and through every shopping means. We thought the same should be available for home decor. Enter Fete Home!
How did the two of you meet?It was 2008 and we both landed jobs where we were charged with launching a high-end home line. The housing market had just exploded and so the challenges we faced were plenty. What worked was that we came from polar opposite industries—Audrey, architecture and Jen, financial services—which conjured an immediate respect for what each of us didn't know. That respect has been the foundation of our relationship and guides each decision we make for Fete.
Where does your love of interiors come from?JP: To be fair, I have a love of "home" and all the emotions that go with it. I grew up excited about people coming home: my older brothers from school, my dad from business trips, everyone converging at Christmas or Thanksgiving. "Home" means everything to me. My mom (not an interior designer) has incredible confidence when it comes to creating an interior and I learned from that. I choose things for my home that I love to be around and that make me feel comfortable and happy.
AM: I’m trained as an architect and will always love a beautiful building, but it’s the interiors that really make my heart beat. Decorating your home offers the opportunity to really express your personality—to tell a story through the unique objects you collect and add depth through the colors and patterns you mix. I love to walk into a home and be wowed by the narrative of the interior! I’m constantly thinking about how to continue that story in my own home. To many people, decorating comes naturally; to most, it does not. We started Fete Home to make it easy to find the items that add interest to your home.
