Here at Muddy we are always on the snoop for the new, the independent, the stylish and the super-cool so we were patting ourselves madly on the back when we found this stunning new boutique nestled in the heart of Devizes.
is run by Kevin Stone and his wife Hilly and is the realisation of a lifelong dream – filled with fittings collected over the last 20 years, the shop is a showcase of timeless design, each with a story to tell. And oh, what a story! Whilst Kevin and Hilly’s curated edit is an expression of their own design aesthetic – a magical collection of furniture and ideas, ‘things we would buy for each other,’ they say – I promise you their customers love it all too.
Packed with proudly British brands, they sell everything from Plum and Ashby Candles, Millican Bags and Rachel Jackson Jewellery to Fred Perry and Baracuta (OK, they’re not British, but they’re pretty smart all the same) for our Mr Muddys. There are enough funky brands to tempt all us stylistas, and I’d kill for a pair of those Monokel sunnies.
On a quirkier note, Kevin and Hilly are all about products with provenance and stories behind them, and so work with many local artisans, be it a wood carver from Melksham or an artist from Tilshead. Thinking local but acting global – that’s Muddy perfection. Oh, and they’re dog friendly too.
