Hus­band and wife team Krystyna and Paul Cas­tle present this charm­ing shop in Shrews­bury, of­fer­ing faux floristry and botan­i­cals, light­ing and pot­tery, in a fab­u­lous fu­sion of boho style with rich dark glam­our. Krystyna tells us more...

How would you de­scribe the shop’s style?

It is sim­ply like nowhere else… fab and fun with a touch of boho glam. Our ob­ses­sion is al­ways to be brave, bold and dif­fer­ent. There’s more than a hint of a vin­tage Parisi­enne florist about Wyld Home. Min­i­mal­ism isn’t for us – more is def­i­nitely more!

What in­spired you to open your shop?

We’ve al­ways wanted to cre­ate some­thing unique to­gether and a few months into re­tire­ment de­cided it was now or never. We found a tiny shop on Shrews­bury’s Wyle Cop, a ‘golden mile’ of in­de­pen­dents. In­spired by Abi­gail and Gemma Ah­ern’s fresh ap­proach to faux flow­ers, we put to­gether our own mix of things we love.

What makes your shop dif­fer­ent to oth­ers? We spe­cialise in cus­tom ar­range­ments of faux flow­ers com­plete with vase. Of­ten, cus­tomers bring in their own vase and we make a dis­play to suit its style and their home. We love to make con­tem­po­rary bou­quets and hand ties, and nat­u­ral­is­tic wed­ding flow­ers. We spice things up with con­tem­po­rary ob­jects when­ever we fall for them… chan­de­liers, beaded bulb cov­ers, raku ware, clay pots and planters. The rule is, if we don’t love it, we don’t stock it, and if you can’t find it any­where else, so much the bet­ter.
