Welcome to our blog! We are two sisters, and founders of Ginger & Mora, a very recently launched online homeware boutique. On our first post we thought it was important to share with you (with the help of a few family snaps) a little bit about us, the people behind the name, and how our journey has led to this point.
The first question people always ask when they meet us is.."Where are you from?"
They usually ask this first as one of us has bright red hair, the other dark brown and the lilts in our accents are definitely a little weird..Well, we are very lucky. We've moved around quite a bit; Ecuador, Colombia, Ireland and Italy were all places we called home before hitting our twenties.
Endless, deserted beaches, wild jungle and flowing rivers are some our first memories and where our life's adventure began.
A bright, open plan, tropical house on a large farm was undoubtedly our first experience of beautiful living. It was here we cultivated our love of the natural world.
Tropical living continued in a colonial house in the centre of the Caribbean city of Cartagena where folklore, bright colours, music and great seafood were a part of our everyday life.
We were to continue our story in what definitely felt at the time like the far off, mystical Emerald Isle where a change in language, culture and style made an important impact on how we looked at the world. (Check out those jumpers!!)
Life would change again for us with our parents decision to move to Italy, the place where their own story had begun!
We loved our summers and school holidays spent in the hills of the Chianti. Incredible food, art and style round ever corner!
So how does this all link in with Ginger & Mora?
Well so many moves resulted in four big loves! Family, food, nature and interiors. You might be wondering how the latter one came about..
