This is our first attempt at putting together a little video. The one above celebrates our first few months of trading from August 2012-May 2013, when we were located at our studio on Bow Alley in Alnwick.

This is the space we now use exclusively for the many workshops we have. Hope you enjoy viewing it and can perhaps give us a little feedback; we’d really appreciate it.

Thanks for visiting …

Marilyn & Melrose is an Interiors & Lifestyle shop, based in the beautiful castle town of Alnwick, in Northumberland. We opened the shop in August 2012, introducing the North East to the wonders of Annie Sloan Chalk Paint™, painted furniture, up-cycling and of course …. fantastic Craft Workshops.

Since then, the shop has taken on new premises on the High Street and we still have our gorgeous, original Studio, much loved by all our customers. The shop has evolved into a lifestyle store, largely because we listened to our customers, and also because it was a natural progression. When you visit us, you will find a vast array of many beautiful items for your home …. soft furnishings, furniture, craft items, haberdashery, scented candles, beautiful jewellery, mind body and spirit items …. and clothes too. We have three floors of loveliness for you to explore.

Please come and visit us at 12 Narrowgate, Castle Quarter, Alnwick, Northumberland, NE66 1JG, where you can buy the Annie Sloan Chalk Paint™ and have a go at upcycling or revamping your own furniture. Expect a friendly welcome and you can also find out about the many workshops we hold at the studio, including the renowned Annie Sloan Work Shops. Marilyn & Melrose came about by accident, rather than design and we’re extremely grateful for the support of our customers. We love every single minute of bringing you gorgeous things for your home and yourselves.

Hope to see you soon. Karen & Paul xx
