An Interview with Matilda Goad
A Jolly Pop up
We have just enjoyed a wonderful week with Matilda as our neighbour in the 121 Sydney Street shop.
Matilda is a creative consultant who focuses on creating interesting and stimulating visual spaces and her pop up shop was not a disappointment.
With a curated selection of her prints and lampshades as well as vintage rugs from edit58 and wrapping paper and cards from Susannah Garrod, we wanted to move into the space and never leave.
One of Matilda's Lampshades available at Matildagoad.com
We asked Matilda to take a bit of time in her busy week to answer a few questions.
